Iggy Azalea rolls through Mumbai, India, in her “Bounce” video.
If you thought Selena Gomez was the only girl in town rocking a bindi (remember her “Come & Get It” performance at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards?), then YOU ARE SORELY MISTAKEN! Australian rapper-turned-model Iggy Azalea has also adopted the bindi as a “thing,” as she’s wearing a one 24/7 in her brand-new video for “Bounce,” taken from from her upcoming debut, The New Classic.
Watch Iggy Azalea’s “Bounce” video after the jump.
Filmed in Mumbai, India, and directed by BRTHR, the “Work” rapper’s “Bounce” clip is a bright and colorful, Bollywood-esque piece, complete with traditional Indian saris and… elephants! Meaning, the blonde 22-year-old spitfire rides an IRL elephant down the busy streets of India. About said elephant, Iggy recalls: “It took us a month to find it, and we got it. We just took this elephant and thugged it down the street, and it was insane.” Yeah, not quite sure how one “thugs an elephant” since, ya know, the thing must weigh at least 500 pounds. But if anyone can figure out how to charm a giant tusked beast, it’s probably Iggy.
