Iggy Azalea Goes “Kill Bill” For New VideoBy: Amanda Crum - August 18, 2014
Iggy Azalea is no stranger to paying homage to films in her videos–she played a more grown-up version of Alicia Silverstone’s Clueless character in the video for “Fancy”–and her latest single is clearly influenced by Quentin Tarantino’s hit Kill Bill, complete with a cameo by Michael Madsen.
“Black Widow”, a collaboration with Rita Ora, starts out in a diner with Azalea playing waitress to Madsen and Ora’s characters. When Madsen gets upset over his order, the scene changes into one filled with snow-covered mountains and cherry blossoms and Azalea appears in a skintight racing outfit with a sword.
Azalea isn’t afraid to get a little weird with it, and the Australian rapper is also quick to take risks with the visuals, so it’s no surprise that her videos get a ton of hits; “Black Widow” was released on Vevo on August 13 and already has over 8 million views.
Azalea was in headlines last week after a video was leaked online that appears to be from her pre-rap days and is very, very different from the direction she’s going in lately. In fact, she’s being compared to a “Toxic”-era Britney.
Azalea recently joined several celebrities in taking the ice bucket challenge after being called out by Jennifer Lopez, and threw up a video on Instagram to call out three more people.
