VidEG 10 Iggy Azalea - Fancy

  • The video pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with Iggy playing Cher and Charli portraying Tai and was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
  • The link between the narrative and the visuals doesn't match as much as it does in other pop videos, the narrative is describing how she is 'superior' to the other rappers out there and how she is the 'realest' - directing this at Nicki Minaj?
  • The video is set in a school as well as a house for a party and also a motorway.
  • Rap is known for its exploitation of women, but as it is a woman singing it, except for some revealing clothing and a couple of shots, exploitation is kept almost minimal.
  • star treatment is very big in pop videos and is very prevalent in this video too, with Charli or Iggy being in every scene.
