Iggy Azalea And Rita Ora Do Kill Bill In The Video For “Black Widow”

August 13, 2014 / Posted by:

I cannot stop laughing at this beautiful image of Rita Ora trying to hold a sword; it looks like the result of 2 hours training with a weapons specialist that ended with them saying: “I give up. Just fucking hold it however way you want to, I don’t care.” Then again, Iggy Azalea is no better; bitch looks like she’s holding a Shake Weight.

The music video for “Black Widow” starring Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and British singer Rita Ora was released today, and Iggy must be a major cinephile (just like Michale Bolton!), because her last video was basically a frame for frame copy of Clueless and this one is essentially a direct rip-off of Kill Bill. Well, sort of: Michael Madsen is back as Budd (then again, he could just be playing current-day Michael Madsen), but there’s no Gogo Yubari, no O-Ren Ishii, no Vernita Green, and no Pussy Wagon! Why couldn’t they get the Pussy Wagon?? I bet probably because Iggy wasn’t willing to suck the necessary toes needed to borrow it (don’t blame her).

But the best part of the video, hands down, is at the 1:01 mark when the manager of the diner slurms across the counter to ask if there’s a problem. They could have easily cut out a full minute of slow-mo sword fighting and replaced it with several outtakes of her trying to clear the counter and I’m sure there wouldn’t be any complains. Forget Rita Ora dressed as a high-class lot lizard from 1993, I want more surly manager! She’s the real star of “Black Widow”!

And is it so wrong that when I heard the words Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, and movie-themed music video, I was really disappointed it didn’t end up being an homage to White Chicks?
