Britney Spears is busting out her best '80s moves.
The pop star and Iggy Azalea recently teamed up to film the video for their upcoming single "Pretty Girls," and the "Fancy" rapper revealed that there will be "a lot of dancing" in the video -- but not from her.
"I didn’t dance! [Britney] wanted me to," Iggy told USA Today "Since I was co-directing the video, the way I explained it was, it would be kind of obnoxious for me to direct a video and give myself a dance break as well. Like, 'Here’s the video! And I gave myself a dance scene!' I don’t know if it necessarily fits my identity, but I think Britney’s identity is really embedded in being a dancer, and that’s something she really wanted to do as well. So there’s a lot of dancing in the video, but I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily centered around that."
Iggy and Brit are both rocking some serious '80s attire in the video -- with big hair, leopard print and cut-off jean jackets -- but not just as an homage to the era. Like in Iggy's previous music videos, there will also be a story.
"You know me, I like having a narrative. So if it was just like, '‘80s!' that would be kind of boring for me," she said. "But what Britney made clear to me is that she really wanted to do a video where she got to dress up and play a character. That was really important to her and she liked a lot of the things I’ve done that were inspired by movies and stuff."
And much like in her other videos, Iggy is looking to movies as her inspiration, and this time her muse is '80s star, Geena Davis.
"I think she’s just like the ultimate ’80s pin-up hot, cool type of girl, so I told Britney to check her out, and she was like, 'Yes, I love Geena Davis!' So we based our characters on a lot of stuff like that, like Geena Davis and characters she played in a lot of her movies at that time period," she said. "But there’s definitely a narrative. I don’t want to give it away, but it’s quirky and funny."
So which of Geena's movies from the '80s could the girls be channeling? Let's investigate.
Something tells me this may not be the inspiration since it's a science fiction horror film, but Geena still looks supa dupa fly.
Davis' star went to new heights when she starred in one of my favorite '80s movies, "Beetlejuice." Fingers crossed that they actually channel Michael Keaton instead, because that would be something to see.
"The Accidental Tourist"
Geena got herself an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in her role in this drama, so who knows? Maybe those fun pics are throwing us for a loop and the ladies are actually showing off their dramatic side.
"Thelma & Louise"
While this movie may have come out in 1991, I'm thinking that this may be the film they were thinking about when making this music video. I mean, it's got the dropped-top convertible, the big hair, the jean jackets and dancing. The only thing they won't have is a young Brad Pitt.
