Everything looks good in slow motion, so Iggy Azalea’s new music video for “Black Widow” with Rita Ora is by default phenomenal. The girl power video features cameos from T.I. and Michael Madsen just cause.
The video starts out kind of like Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s “Telephone” where the girls are in an old diner and their lives are complicated because of men yadda yadda. In a flash, the two find themselves in chic assassin gear and took the time to change hair styles (Iggy’s ode to Christina Aguilera’s “Come On Over” though).
They practice with their swords in slow-mo, stare longingly into the camera in slow-mo and ride motorcycles like Britney Spears in “Toxic” in slow-mo. I’m even typing this in slow-mo.
Put on your time travel cap and watch it below:
I dig it. Thoughts?
