NEW VIDEO: Iggy Azalea X Charli XCX - Fancy

[Source]

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX went Clueless for the Fancy visuals.

As much as I absolutely love Clueless and think that this looks all kinds of awesome, it still kinda, sorta doesn't... match... the actual song. Or maybe it's just me who thinks that? For those who don't know, Clueless is modern strain of Jane Eyre's Emma only with much cooler lingo and way better hair (I'm talking to you, ringlets-headed Gwyneth Paltrow), but this song is only about being super fancy "bad b---hes" - which, yes, Cher and Dionne undoubtedly were in their own little way, but this meant that Charli XCX's portrayal of Tai was basically inessential, and a lot of scenes made next to no sense contextually. It was a pretty cool Gwen Stefani move though, directed by Julian Lutz (aka Director X), made even more so by the fact that they shot a few scenes on the actual Bronson Alcott High School set.

So seeing as the video is paying homage to one of the most quotable movies of all time, I will just let you guys go ahead and check it out for yourselves via YouTube but in my opinion, this is a full-on Monet. From far away, it's OK, but up-close, it's a big old mess (hee-hee).

You can pre-order Fancy on iTunes here. Azalea's album, The New Classic is out April 14th.
