While the sensual, albeit controversial, music video featuring Iggy Azalea
has been attracting eyeballs (it's raked in more than 42 million views on YouTube), it has also garnered criticism from "the haters."
J.Lo argued that the salacious nature of the video makes sense considering the song lyrics (you can download the track here
), and challenged those who would prefer to see her move onto a more conservative track as her career progresses.
"I refuse to be put in a box in that way," Lopez said. "Why, because I'm over 40? So I can't be sexy? Or, is it because I'm a mom? Moms aren't allowed to be sexy. Uh, how did I get my kids in the first place?"
All the drama surrounding her video seemed trivial last Saturday when the singer was involved in a car accident in Malibu while driving with pal Leah Remini and their children.
"We're in the car, kids in the back seat, and the guy just slams into the back of us," said J.Lo. "It was so scary."
J.Lo told us that the driver in the other car was "arrested for drunk driving," but fortunately everyone was okay after the collision.
Watch the video to see what J.Lo had to say about shooting a love scene with a younger man in The Boy Next Door, out January 23, 2015.
