Generally speaking, most 42-year-old mothers of twins would find it difficult to pull off a look that involves skin-tight leather pants, a sparkling shirt, and/or cornrows, but Jennifer Lopez plays by a different set of rules — and to prove it, she danced around in the aforementioned wardrobe while shooting her latest video in Acapulco, Mexico.

The clip, said to be for Lopez’s next single ‘Follow the Leader,’ was filmed with reggaeton duo Wisin & Yandel. She tweeted from the set, telling followers, “2nd Video in Mexico with @wisinyyandel #FollowTheLeader Love it here! #LosLideres Siempre al frente!”

She was joined on the set by her latest boyfriend, 24-year-old former backup dancer Casper Smart, who is apparently directing the video. The Daily Mail snapped a steady stream of pictures of the lovebirds getting cozy between takes. They looked like they were having a fine time — which is pretty much how you look if you’re cuddling up in sunny Acapulco instead of sitting cooped up at the ‘American Idol‘ judges’ table.

The new single will likely come attached to Lopez’s next greatest hits release, scheduled for later in 2012. It’s shaping up to be a busy year for the actress/singer/entrepreneur, who will appear in the upcoming films ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ and ‘Ice Age 4′ while maintaining her duties on ‘American Idol’ and the Latin talent series ‘Q’Viva! The Chosen,’ which she’s co-producing with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
