Moving on to the review I am a fan of not only Iggy’s music, despite criticism, but of her videos as well. Now this one is interesting as I like the video for this one, but not so much the song. I really liked ‘Black Widow,’ but not so much the video.
The video begins with Iggy pulling up to a bank with this guy who is assumed to be her boyfriend. He says he’s getting money. She replies she thought he was broke and his clever response was he’s getting a loan. Really? Iggy gets out and starts rapping in front of her car and then everyone in the bank runs out screaming and the dude doesn’t even get away with his “loan” as he gets caught by the cops as soon as he walks out the bank.
Switch to the Jennifer Hudson cameo. She’s a cop and is singing her way to lock up Mr. Attempted Bank Robber as she sings her part. Back to Iggy she visits her boyfriend in jail and has ‘Get Ready’ on her hand. I didn’t think that she’d be breaking him out of jail. Here comes the police chase which the news pens ‘Lovers Jailbreak.’ Iggy eventually crashes and her boyfriend gets captured. She walks over to Jennifer Hudson and they start to dance as J. Hud sings. Just when I though the video was absolutely ridiculous and Iggy was going to just walk off, Hudson arrests her.
The video had a storyline which might have seemed a little too staged in certain areas, but I thought it was cool. I did get a Lady Gaga, ‘Telephone,’ vibe from it. As for this making major moves on the radio, I honestly don’t want to hear this over and over and over. This is by far my least favorite Iggy song.
