If you haven’t checked out Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” music video with Charlie XCX, you are seriously missing out! In fact, here at Hollywire, we’re pretty much obsessed with the Clueless-inspired vid.

While chatting with Iggy, we found out a little fun fact: she loves the 90s classic Clueless as much as we do! For her to recreate the film for “Fancy,” it’s basically a dream come true. “It’s been a dream of mine forever. I always said to my friends, ‘Wouldn’t it be so cool if someone remade Clueless? Why hasn’t anyone done that yet properly?’ Iggy explained. “I’ve seen that done a lot, but to me it looks like Tumblr, 90s throwback. I’ve been looking for an excuse for a while and I felt like ‘Fancy’ was the perfect song. I can picture Cher listening to ‘Fancy.’”
Recreating her favorite movie wasn’t the only excitement topic discussed – her new album drops on April 22nd! Happy dance, anyone? Iggy said, “It’s cool. It’s been a very long-time coming so I’m happy there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.”
