Charli XCX wants Julia Fox to star in her music video.
A Twitter follower asked the ‘Baby’ singer if she would collaborate with the ‘Uncut Gems’ star – who has been in the limelight thanks to her whirlwind six-week fling with Kanye West – and the performer of “Just for Me” PinkPantheress.
And it just so happens that the ‘Beg For You’ hitmaker discussed having the 32-year-old actress – who recently mocked her pronunciation of ‘Uncut Gems’ in a viral interview – in the one of his promos.
Responding to the tweet, Charli wrote: “I actually texted someone about the idea of Julia Fox playing the lead role in my next music video. I’m obsessed with her. She’s a legend . (sic)”
The 29-year-old star is set to release her new album, ‘CRASH’, on Friday (18.03.22) and has taken on a music video challenge.
The “Boom Clap” singer recently described her upcoming album as “hyper-sexualized” and explained how she wanted to “challenge” herself with the choreography in the promo for the track “Baby.”
She said: “It’s probably the sexiest song I’ve ever done. It’s about sex and sexuality and having good sex and basically feeling. I know that’s the tone. I knew that was the tone I wanted to carry through. It was into this kind of hyper-sexualized feminine power zone that I felt I was going, and “Baby” was the genesis of it.
“Also, I think that’s probably why I wanted to challenge myself on the choreography for this song, which was really, really difficult and I have so much respect for dancers, professional dancers , everyone who communicates emotions through dance. It’s so challenging and challenging, but so rewarding.”
Charli also recently addressed critics of her latest singles and admitted she was considering quitting music as her mental health had declined in recent months, prompting her to take a step back from social media because she had trouble dealing with criticism.
She said: “I felt pretty bad all through 2022 to be honest. I feel like my mental health really took a toll, and for some reason I just couldn’t really handle the negative comments I was reading, especially about the music and my latest song ‘Beg For You ‘, which was actually starting to do quite well commercially.
“I guess I felt a little hurt when I heard that people didn’t really like the song. I think at a time when I was already feeling pretty low, that kind of rhetoric really pissed me off. really hurt.”
