The 7 Collaborations You Should Know About From Creative Director NIGO

movies clueless iggy azalea
In your recent music videos—"Fancy," "Change Your Life"—the videos have had movie themes, like Clueless and Showgirls and Bladerunner. Are you a movie buff?
Yeah. I don't know—with "Work" I did Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert. I just like it, 'cause I like to pick classic films, or films that have marked culture, and I like to remake them, kind of to go with the whole New Classic thing. I think it's cool to get a new generation interested in things that maybe they kind of missed. Like, I noticed that a lot of people thought that "Fancy" was a remake of Mean Girls. It's generational, that. [Laughs] So I think it's cool with stuff like that, for them to be able to re-discover something that they may have looked over, and I think that that's always fun.

So these are movies that you grew up watching?
Yeah, they're kind of like my personal favorites, just from things that when I was a kid that I loved, or that I watched over and over again, or that I think are cool fashion moments, or that are cool cultural moments that have defined culture. Maybe not hip-hop culture, but I think that they have defined pop culture, in a way. Especially Clueless, with its fashion and the '90s [influence], I think it did.
