I’ve been really into music videos lately, they inspire me and actually makes me feel creative again. I have a few i’d like to share with you.
The first one is the music video for Selena Gomez song ‘Fetish’, directed by Petra Collins.
As Dazed Digital pointedout in an article published Friday, “It’s obvious that it’s not a man behind the camera.” In the rest of the article, Gomez and “Fetish” director Petra Collins go on to explain what exactly the music video is about—and why having two women team up on the video made it powerful.
Collins is one of Gomez’s closest friends and contemporaries, and her artistic work both before and in “Fetish” explores the hidden parts of being a woman, according to Dazed—including “the strange reality of bad summer days and private breakdowns.” Where “Fetish” started, though, involved a teddy bear and Chucky.
“Literally we were lying on ateddy bear watching Chucky,” Collins said in Dazed Digital. “At that point, it was clear we are on the same wavelength. It’s still so crazy to me how, when I first heard ‘Fetish,’ I pictured it to the backdrop of horror. It’s one of my favorite genres to make a female look strong.”
Gomez was thrilled about the concept. “I made it very clear to you that I didn’t see ‘Fetish’ how most people know the word at face value,” she said in the piece. “When most people hear the word fetish, they think of S&M and allthatsexual shit, but you didn’t. You knew why I loved it. You told me, ‘I think this song is about love, something crazy and complicated.’ I wanted the video to be contextualized.”
Collins wanted to show the “very dirty, gross, and weird love you can have towards someone,” she said.
No matter what you think of the video or the song, you have to admit the setting and color are really nice. I really dig the yellow tones and the suburban melancholy that surrounds the video. Feels very Sofia Coppola.
