Take the ugliest female rapper, team her up with a has been ugly pop star, write them a song called pretty girls and what do you get? A pretty big hit.
Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears may not be delightful to the eyes but their new song “pretty girls” is very delightful to the ears. Of course they had to go and spoil the song by appearing in the video but you can always listen to the audio and turn away from the screen. It would have been nice if they had Azealia Banks and Rihanaa or someone more pleasant to the eyes in the video but it is what it is.
An apparent homage to the 1988 film “Earth Girls are Easy,” the video has Spears as an ’80s Valley Girl and Azalea as an alien with superpowers who joins her posse of gal pals and upgrades her cell phone. Cue the crimped hair and “like, totally’s.”
Hopefully this is not Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears last song together but we hope it is their last video together or otherwise. Listening to ugly girls singing about pretty girls can be tolerated. Watching ugly girls pretending to be pretty is very painful.
Azealia Banks, you are so sweet and lovely
Iggy Azalea, you are ugly.
