Here’s the origin of iggy azalea’s new ‘pretty girls’ video
I have to admit — I was freaked out when I first saw Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears’ “Pretty Girls” video. First of all, it features Godney herself in ’80s garb. Second, Iggy is an alien… an alien whose time on Earth is dedicated to being Britney Spears’ best friend. Sure.
But once you realize that — like in many of Iggy’s videos — the ridiculous plot is taken from a movie, things start to make sense… but it doesn’t make it any less weird.
You see, “Pretty Girls” comes straight from 1988 film “Earth Girls Are Easy,” directed by Julien Temple. The movie tells the story of a trio of aliens who descend upon Earth when they crash their spaceship. The aliens — played by Jeff Goldblum, Damon Wayans and Jim Carrey — get a makeover and hit the dating scene in Los Angeles, befriending Geena Davis’ character along the way.
Iggy takes on the role of the alien in this modern remake, emerging from a pool just like Goldblum did. Brit gives her a makeover and takes her out, where she tries to pass as a normal person.
Even their posters are the same!
Watch the trailer for “Earth Girls Are Easy” and suddenly, it all makes sense.
