Will Rita finally break in America with “Black Widow”? There’s a lot riding on this video. Ostensibly, it’s Iggy Azalea FEATURING Rita Ora, but Rita’s doing the heavy lifting here. She sounds a bit too much like Katy Perry for my taste (Katy wrote the song, in fact), but she looks great and the song is quite the earworm. I’m hoping this is the beginning of something big for Rita, because it’s been a loooooooong roll-out with her…. and I don’t know how many more red carpet pics and Rimmel commercials and Material Girl ads I can take without her REALLY being a star.
The video finds Iggy and Rita channeling Kill Bill as two women out for revenge against an asshole played by Reservoir Dogs’ Michael Madsen.
At the start of the video, we see Iggy as a waitress who’s fed up with her boss at Big Wanda’s burger joint. When Rita comes in for a bite, her super rude boyfriend (AKA: Michael Madsen), angers everyone. So, when Iggy heads into the kitchen to chop up lettuce, she lets her mind take her away to a land where it’s all about girl power.
n this fantasy, Iggy and Rita go completely Kill Bill on her ex, and well — love him “like a black widow.” It has a very Tarantino feel mixed with a little bit of Dixie Chicks’ “Goodbye Earl!” The song is featured on Iggy’s first album, The New Classic. (via The Daily Mail)
