I need help....

<Squeezing into her old jeans now required writhing and gyrations that would do justice to MTV videos.>

What does this 'do justice to MTV videos' mean?

    AE, Español justice

    bring out fully or to advantage; "This photograph does not do her justice"
    treat or consider adequately or fairly; "To do him justice, he is brilliant"
    She moves and twists in such a way that, were she dancing instead of wriggling into her clothes, she would fit in well in a music video. Her motions would be an excellent example of music video dancing: they would portray or characterize these videos truthfully, fairly, or well.

    If you can still find it, an old Country-Western song portrays what your sentence is talking about. The title is "My Girl is American Made." I've forgotten the artist.
