The Daily Puke: Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea’s video for ‘Pretty Girls’
SEE VIDEO BELOW
Feel free to Barf right here….
The video for Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s “Pretty Girls” has arrived. Or should we say it has totally arrived. (We should totally say that.) Borrowing heavily from the 1988 Geena Davis cult classic Earth Girls Are Easy – even the fonts are the same – Spears and Azalea don their best valley girl clothes for the video, which also includes a short comedy interlude about Azalea’s “radical alien powers.” It’s not as funny as that part in the “Oops!… I Did It Again” video when Spears gets the necklace the old lady dropped in the ocean at the end ofTitanic, but it’ll do.

On 10 December 2014, when reflecting on the year she’s had and the struggles she faced in the years before, Azalea announced plans of an arena tour for the following year and a second studio album via her Twitter account. The same day, Azalea revealed the title of the tour, The Great Escape Tour, and the concept behind it, which is Azalea picturing herself as “a musical escape artist for people.” Azalea also revealed that the name of the tour goes along with the title of her upcoming second studio album, which would also be promoted on the tour. On 10 March 2015, it was announced the tour was being rescheduled “due to tour production delays,” according to a statement from Def Jam Recordings. The spring tour was rescheduled to the fall, kicking off on 18 September in San Diego, California.
On January 8, 2014, Spears won Favorite Pop Artist at the 40th People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. For the week of July 26, 2014, Alien debuted and peaked at number 8 on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles despite not being released as a single from Britney Jean. In August 2014, Spears confirmed she had renewed her contract with RCA, and that she is writing and recording new music for her next album.
