Weirdly, one could say the 49-year-old singer did remember her trousers as they appeared to be in the form of two pairs of jeans wrapped around her legs.
Like, the boots even came with pockets.
Butt pockets. For jeans. But…on the back of your knees.
We assume it’s for those time you just need to duck to the store for some milk but don’t want to take your mini black Birkin bag.
The two blue boots even came with their own belt, because there is nothing more embarrassing than having your trouser boots around you ankles.
She teamed the boots that we cannot confirm not deny were made for walking with a white button-up that was disguised as a dress, said mini black Birkin and some epic shades.
In which she threw her own epic shade as she strutted to her car in the Big Apple – while also seemingly carrying a pink card we’re going to say might have something to do with her recent 49th birthday.
This look would work on no other.
Her New York City outing comes as it was announced she would be honoured with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, to be held 20 August.
Previous winners include Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Janet Jackson and Pink.
Speaking in a Facebook Live, she shared: ‘I grew up in the MTV era. I was watching all the way back from Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna and Janet [Jackson] and Michael [Jackson], all of them. They were my inspirations to get into the music business, to do what I did.
‘Their videos inspired me to do the videos I did. Now, to be 20 years in and here and winning this award, it’s just mind blowing.’
The singer – who has twins Emme and Max, 10, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony – revealed she would like to see Missy Elliot or Lady Gaga pick up the award next year.
- ‘Missy’s a great one, ’cause her videos were always so cutting-edge,’ she said. ‘Yes, her and Gaga I think would be good ones.’
