The video for “Ain’t Your Mama,” Jennifer Lopez’s new ear worm of a single, features J.Lo dancing on a soundstage in a pair of pants-boots gifted from Rihanna, who designed the shoes in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik for the Denim Desserts collection.

“To the baddest,” Rihanna wrote in a note she sent with the shoes. “Because I know you’re gonna wear them better than me!!!”

So J.Lo wore the “incredibly sick-ass boots” in her new product placement-laden music video, which makes sense thematically given that the narrative loosely follows the evolution of the working woman. According to the product page on ManoloBlahnik.com, the “sensual thigh-scraping boot” is called “9 to 5” and costs $4,350. The design “evolved from the pair’s vision of a confident, decisive woman who knows what she wants.”

But what was it like to dance in them? In a video Q&A on her Facebook page yesterday, J.Lo revealed that the boots were not made for dancing.

Side note: How insane is J.Lo’s home decor?

“They were hard to dance in,” she said. “Everybody else was dancing, as you see, in kinda like combat boots and sneakers, and I walked out to the set and I was like, ‘Nobody wearing heels but me? OK!’ It was on concrete, outside, so it wasn’t the easiest boot to ever dance in, but we pulled it off.”

She’s J.Lo. She can probably dance in anything.
