When Jennifer Lopez released “Ain’t Your Mama,” she received substantial backlash. Not so much for the quality of the track but for who produced it- Dr. Luke. J. Lo wisely amps up the female empowerment aspect of the lyrics written by Meghan Trainor for the accompanying video.

“Treat me good, you know?” Lopez told Entertainment Tonight. “Guys have this tendency… They love you in the beginning, and you’re the hottest woman on earth. Then, all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Okay, where’s my food?’ And I’m like, ‘What?!? You kidding me? Take me out.’”

The clip begins with a sample of Hillary Clinton’s 1995 speech from the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. Lopez then takes on different personas fighting for their rights from the 50s all the way to present day. The 80s look is my favorite. The 46-year-old then ends it off with an epic dance number, wearing a white jumpsuit with distractingly ugly denim chaps. Check out the video below.

When it comes to celebrity endorsements, Hillary Clinton is unrivaled. Not even Donald Trump comes close when it comes to Hollywood support, though he does have his fair share.

Just in time for ABC’s Thursday night lineup, a new political ad debuted featuring the leading women of TGIT. Scandal’s Kerry Washington, Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo, and How to Get Away With Murder’s Viola Davis, along with Shonda Rhimes showed their support for Clinton. After it aired, Hillary tweeted her gratitude for the endorsement.

Just in case you were wondering, an ABC spokesperson issued a statement that it was “a paid political advertisement placed on a number of stations. Broadcasters are required by the FCC to carry these ads.” Check it out below.

Patti Solis Doyle was the first campaign manager of the former first lady’s 2008 presidential run. This time around, Hillary Clinton has tapped 35-year-old political director, Robby Mook to navigate her through the 2016 Presidential race. He becomes the first openly gay person to serve as the manager of a major presidential campaign.

“Robby understands modern campaigns, the value of data and technology,” Obama adviser David Plouffe told Bloomberg in 2013. “He beat us three times; his footprint was on our back. He did the best job of anyone over there.”

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Hillary Clinton threw her hat in the proverbial ring. Though she’s previously denied wanting to launch a second attempt for the Oval Office, the 67-year-old former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State announced she’s in the running for the 2016 US Presidential race.

“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” says Clinton in the clip. “Everyday Americans needs a champion, and I want to be that champion. So you can do more that just get by, you can get ahead and stay ahead. Because when families are strong, America is strong.”

The anticipation of her announcement reached a fever pitch in recent days with many expecting it would take place sometime this weekend. Not surprisingly, social media lit up with tons of support. Also expected was the number of detractors. #WhyImNotVotingForHillary immediately trended. Watch the video below.

Who Should Play Hillary Rodham Clinton?

In: Donovan, Movies

Rodham isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until the 2016 Presidential Election, but that isn’t stopping the film’s director from giving interviews about it and spilling some major casting details. James Ponsoldt chatted with The Independent about which four ladies he has his eyes on to play a young Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Regardless of people’s political affiliation or how they feel about Hillary Clinton, you don’t find people who question the quality of her intelligence or her drive,” Ponsoldt told The Independent. “I want a wonderful actress who could embody that.”

The biopic will focus on Clinton’s time as a House Judiciary Committee lawyer in her twenties. She served as a counsel to the committee during the Watergate scandal. There are rumors that Kim Young II’s script includes many racy scenes. When the scribe was asked about it, he coyly replied, “It’s an evolving process so I don’t know. She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that’s our thematic focus.” I’m not sure if the world is ready for a 50 Shades of Hillary type of flick. Don’t you agree?

Two of the four supposed frontrunners for the political role of a lifetime are Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon. If I had to chose between these two ladies, I’d cast my vote for Witherspoon. Her role as Tracy Flick in the 1999 film Election is exactly what I’d picture a young Clinton to be. Find out the other two ladies below.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has just released a video in conjunction with the Human Rights Campaign. She really explains her stance and support for gay marriage really well and you can really get how passionate she is about the issue.

In one part of her message she says, “I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. Embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for LGBT Americans and all Americans.” She continues, “Like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people I have known and loved. By my experience representing our nation on the world stage, my devotion to law and human rights, and the guiding principles of my faith.”

Watch her powerful and captivating message below.

Yesterday afternoon in Geneva, Switzerland, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton made a memorable speech that I personally hope has a major impact on the future of gay rights across the world. Recognizing that America’s own record on LGBT equality is “far from perfect,” she called on nations around the world to recognize that “gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights.” Such a profound statement. Here are a few highlights from the speech:

  • “Some believe homosexuality is a Western phenomenon… but gay people belong to every society in the world… Being gay is not a Western invention, it is a human reality.”
  • “It should never be a crime to be gay.”
  • “To LGBT men and women worldwide: Wherever you live and whatever your circumstances… please know that you are not alone.”
  • “Our commitment to protect the freedom of religion and defend LGBT people come from a common source… Human rights are universal and cut across all religions and cultures.”

Along with the speech, Clinton announced that the administration is launching a $3 million global equality fund to support the work of civil society organizations working on these issues around the world. The fund will help human rights groups “record facts so they can target their advocacy, learn how to use the law as a tool, manage their budgets, train their staffs and forge partnerships with women’s organizations and other Human Rights groups.”
