J. Lo Attempts To Flip Gender Roles In 'I Luh Ya Papi' Video

Friday, March 21, 2014

Pop star Jennifer Lopez has a new album on the way in June – and she recently dropped her first music video from the new record.

We talk with writer Daisy Buchanan about why artists like Jennifer Lopez and Lily Allen have made videos in this vein recently -- and the impact that they could have on gender imagery in the music business in the long run.
