Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea have released the video for their new single ‘Pretty Girls’. Whilst we all knew the pair would never make a boring video, it’s fair to say that it’s a little bit weirder than we expected. The promo clip is apparently inspired by 1988 film ‘Earth Girls Are Easy’, which might help explain a few things!

Is that Britney Spears sunning herself by a pool and doing her nails? Apart from the questionable 80s outfit, there’s nothing too weird going on here…Source: Screenshot
Oh no but what’s this? Looks like a strange UFO flying through the skies of LA! That normality didn’t last long did it? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope…Source: Screenshot
…It’s Iggy Azalea in the form of an alien, obviously! And whatever planet she’s come from, they clearly stock huge amounts of hairspray. (Also note the flawless make-up despite her presumably long and arduous trip through time and space…just sayin’).Source: Screenshot
Britney is just SO stoked to have a new alien best pal that she’s dressed her up to be just like her! Yay! That is totally not creepy! Personally we didn’t see anything wrong with her weird metal dress and beehive. What could be more 80s than that?!Source: Screenshot
Iggy and Britney decide to celebrate their new found friendship in the most American way possible – with an open top drive down the highway! Hold on a minute, why is no-one steering?Source: Screenshot
SERIOUSLY GUYS! THIS IS DANGEROUS! STOP TAKING ALIEN SELIFES AND LOOK AT THE DAMN ROAD!Source: Screenshot
In between dancing in their seats and doing anything but driving, Iggy even has time to to use her alien powers to do something worrying to this guys hose! Insert innuendo here as appropriate (that’s what she said).Source: Screenshot
It may be 2015 but that doesn’t mean Britney can’t pause their road trip so she can crack out some of her classic dance moves from back in the day, accompanied by lots of half naked hunks (because why wouldn’t everyone at the service station be a brilliant dancer?!).Source: Screenshot
Watch out everyone, Iggy‘s using her alien powers again! This time she’s ‘accidently’ broken into an ATM machine and made it rain money. WOOP WOOP! We really really want a friend like her.Source: Screenshot
After all that fun and games, poor Britney‘s just realised her (MASSIVE) phone is broken 🙁 Thank God that her new friend Iggy is not only a thief but a phone fixerer too (that’s a real job y’know). Look at those special effects go!Source: Screenshot
OMG! Thanks Iggy! You are like sooo the best friend ever for giving Britney a brand new Samsung S6! Product placement? What’s that?Source: Screenshot
Luckily, now the girls have their Samsu…ahem, generic smartphone, they can call up their other gal pals and find out where the party’s at and dance all night long, happy ever after. Hoorah! Everyone knows there ain’t no party like a weird alien / pop princess party, amiriiight?Source: Screenshot
Oh, just one more thing – because no alien themed video would be complete without an abduction! They both seem pretty pleased about it though, maybe they’re being taken to an alternate dimension where this song isn’t as dull and there’s no need for a weird video to make up for it? Just a guess, though!
