Can Iggy Azaela do for Kill Bill what they did for Clueless? Hell, yes. Basically presented as a diner daydream where Waitress Iggy wishes her knife was a Katana — the better to chop down loudmouth actor Michael Madsen, who was in Kill Bill and other Tarantino flicks — "Black Widow" is a sexy and slick kung-fu adventure with Rita Ora and Iggy kicking ass and getting revenge.
Obviously an Excessive Machine would be a bit much — the line is drawn at boob rockets — but Ariana Grande gets surprising campy and unsurpisingly sexy in a sci-fi romp that occupies a galaxy somwhere between Barbarella and Flash Gordon.
"Burning Gold" is one of those sneaky videos that lets a highly individual pop star try on some more traditional glam styles in the name of a narrative, and then throw it all away to maintain her core image and edge. In this case it's a spin on the Dreamgirls dynamic with Christina Perri getting plucked from a bar and made into a starlet. All is fabulous and glammy, until she realizes that her mentor/lover has moved onto the next one and she's ready to get back to the basics in a fiery conclusion.
