Iggy Azalea is an alien in the new "Pretty Girls" video, out Wednesday (May 13). It's also '80s-themed. And Britney Spears plays a air-headed Valley girl. Needless to say... there's a lot going on here.
Britney is just an ordinary girl, with an ordinary crimped 'do, sitting by a pool. Until, wait, there's Iggy, emerging from the water. She's an alien? With a beehive? From the '60s? She's a time traveler? Whatever, answers aren't necessary, because soon, Brit and Iggys -- Briggy, if you will -- are best friends and they decide to explore the world by driving around in their Jeep. It's like one big spoof of "Earth Girls Are Easy."
“All around the world, pretty girls/ Wipe the floor with all the boys/ Pour the drinks, bring the noise/ We’re just so pretty,” Spears sings over the bouncy bassline. She wears a cheetah print top, showing off that famous midriff while she dances at a car wash. I know, I don't get it either, but I'll take anything Britney is giving me.
Iggy makes it rain by using her alien talents on an ATM. Her alien powers are "totally" used to fix Brit's old-school cell into a brand-new sponsored phone. And then they totally go to the club.
I won't spoil the ending of it for you, but let's just say there's more dancing and maybe more activity from Iggy's home planet (in outerspace, not Australia).
