      RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VISUALS + LYRICS: 


      There is no relationship between the lyrics and the visuals on screen, however there is mention of her diamonds and bling which of course has been visualised multiple times. 

    GENRE CHARACTERISTICS, INTERTEXTUALITY?

    The video intro has been taken from the film (The Naked Kiss, 1964, Fuller








    Below are some of the screen shots taken from the opening to the video. 

















    Make up from the video 

    PERFORMANCE, NARRATIVE AND/OR CONCEPT?:


    The video is performance with narrative. 






    PERFORMANCE STYLE: 

    Her performance style is closely linked to that of Lady Gaga with traits from others such as Miley Cyrus. Her performance in this video could be linked with Lady Gagas Alejandro due to them sharing the same director. 



    STAR TREATMENT:


    There is star treatment throughout the video as for most of it Brooke Candy is the only one who stars in it. There is extremely heavy focus on herself throughout the video. 



    LOCATION/S + MISE-EN-SCENE: 

    there are not many locations used in the video.


    NOTABLE SHOTS/FRAMING: 

    There is a lot of creative and innovative 




    DIRECTOR STYLE:





    The directors style is very unique, but the titles at the start of the video are characteristics often seen in hip-hop films and R&B. With the large titles filling the screen along with white text on a black background to make it stand out.
