Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX Channel ‘Clueless’ for ‘Fancy’ Video
By Shannon Carlin
Iggy Azalea is doing her best Cher Horowitz impression in her new video for “Fancy.”
The clip takes us all the way back to 1996, when Alicia Silverstone was just a valley girl with a heart of gold. But Iggy, isn’t some ditzy blonde, instead she’s making it clear she’s a girl with some expensive taste.
With a little help from Charli XCX–who gets to be the Tai to Iggy’s Cher–the Aussie rapper gets to reenact the best parts of Clueless, like surviving Dionne’s first drive on the highway, playing a little suck and blow and wearing Cher’s signature look.
And instead of playing tennis, Iggy choreographs a little dance routine because like Amber’s plastic surgeon, she doesn’t like balls flying at her nose.
But all Iggy really wants is to solidify her fancy status. Clearly proving her point with the verse, “Cup of Ace, cup of Goose, cup of Cris/High heels, somethin’ worth a half a ticket on my wrist.” I mean, really, like, she’d be caught chugging some boxed wine while wearing some knockoff Rolex. As if!
Azalea’s long-awaited solo debut, The New Classic, drops April 6.
