So, it’s official – Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea’s new video for the song “Booty” has been released, watched and reviewed a few times since its big debut. The song, written by Chris Brown has it’s moment in the spotlight owing to the appearance of Jenny from the Block.
The video itself is a series of flashing images of the two vixens in swim-wear. It is expected to be embraced by adoring fans. Those who wish to view it can check it out below. Now let me get right to it. “Booty?” I guess I can’t expect much else since it appears that Booty is in.
Yeah it seems people are just coming to the realization that it’s ok to have a rounded butt, so all of a sudden people seem to be trippin’ over ass. Besides, I can’t say I expect anything else from the likes of Chris Brown- he is male after all and it has been scientifically proven that they got ass on the brain 90% of the time. With that said, i expect most men will like it anyway.
What gets me though is that there is nothing to the song or the video. I mean really, there are no lyrics that show the capacity to communicate a semblance of something clever or witty, just an irritating repetitive jive about booty. It’s no wonder the quality of the video as it relates to content is so lacking.
The reviews are inline with that sentiment, just a bit worse with a ton of references about Jlo acting her age:
Zero Music Value! Just shows the Moral Decay of society! I respected Jennifer Lopez to do more than this at her age! Just my Opinion!This video reeks of “hey guys don’t forget about me!!!!” So desperate. She should have had other women or more of Iggy who’s younger in here or made the video more of a story rather than making it about her reliving the glory days.
Wait wtf? Isn’t jlo like 60? She needs to stop shaking her AARP booty, and act her age.
As sexy as JLo is, I cant take this video serious being that she’s 44-45y/o. Im not saying dont show off your young body (if you still have it, work it), jus do it in a classy way. A twerk video at age 45 is unappealing. N the song is horrible.
I really couldn’t get through half the video. Quite frankly it’s just not my thing cause the stuff it’s made of is just a bit mind numbing to me; ass smacking, oil smearing, grinding and public placement. To me it’s a little stale now in fact, it’s played out. Plus when you have two females rubbing up on each other that’s the making of a lesbian flick; but for those who are into girl on girl action, I suppose it would be ideal.
Anyway, even though J-Lo’s got a decent derriere – meaning it looks feminine and all- the ass in the video look pretty basic to me. If you are gonna go on and on about having a big butt I don’t expect it to be that basic.
Not everyone will have a big butt – and that’s ok because it’s the beauty of diversity- but if you are gonna convince me that your butt is good enough to be featured as the star of a video, you would have to do better than that.
I’ve seen far too many women with a good sized rear end to know that what you’re working with is standard. Another thing too, do we really need another booty shakin’ video? All these videos do is perpetuate hoochie behavior. What a fine legacy to leave our children. It’s no wonder guys expect our girls to “put out” or “back that ass up” for everything, cause we are in effect saying “I’m nothin’ more than a piece of ass.”
