The much anticipated video for Priyanka Chopra’s American pop single, “Exotic,” is finally out and it’s…interesting.
Featuring tons of in-your-face sex appeal (that nude bathing suit?), a few strange dance movements choreographed by Priyanka herself, and rap interludes by Pitbull, the song and video have all the makings for a summer anthem. But do we love it? It’s catchy, but we can’t get behind a song called “Exotic” or her weird “I Dream of Jeannie” arm movements (they first appear at the 1:57 mark of the video). She told RyanSeacrest.com that the dance moves were created by choreographer Richy Jackson and herself:
“…Richy Jackson and I wanted to make it fun and easy … It’s actually an amalgamation of the various Indian moves that I combined to make this step, so I guess we can call it the ‘Priyanka’… hahahaha! It’s such a easy, cool step that I totally see people using it in nightclubs or anytime they feel the need to dance … It’s so exotic!” Righhhhtttt.
The wardrobe, while minimal, is better than her first music video. Love the high waisted bikini bottoms and the selection of Louboutins, which were custom made for the video and later auctioned off for charity.
