Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and British singer-songwriter Rita Ora joined forces to pay homage to ’70s kung-fu flicks. The video for Iggy’s new single ”Black Widow” is inspired by the Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill,” including portraying both music stars in striped, form-fitting jumpsuits reminiscent of The Bride’s iconic outfits. The music video even featured Michael Madsen, an actor who’s appeared frequently in Tarantino’s films.
Iggy has become a remixer in her own way, taking her top hit songs and combing them with classic movies. “Black Widow” is Azalea’s latest video to be influenced by a beloved film. The rapper previously channeled Beverly Hills socialite Cher Horowitz in the music video for her song “Fancy” from the film “Clueless.”
This video is a prime example of things are used everyday and there isn’t a single thing that is really original. Everything is a copy of a copy.Kill Bill‘s plot was inspired by Lady Snowblood, a 1973 Japanese film in which a woman kills off the gang who murdered her family. Kill Bill pays tribute to film genres including the spaghetti western, blaxploitation, Chinese wuxia, Japanese yakuza films, Japanese samurai cinema, and kung fu movies of the 1960s and 1970s. In part 2 of Everything is a remix , the video states that 74/100 movies are remakes or sequels to other movies, television shows, books and comic books. “Transforming the old into the new is Hollywood’s greatest talent”
