MICHETE - STUPID GIRL

Washington-based trendsetting artist Michete cuts you deep with self-reflective lyrics regarding the foibles of relationships. For example who "wrestle(s) with delusion and pretend(s) it's real?" The video begins with a pajama party that somehow recalls the B-52s "Love Shack." The pre-video sketch is quick and to the point and nods to Madonna's Truth or Dare. Michete's new music video for the song "Stupid Girl" is flirty, fun and may even remind you of that 90's classic by the group Garbage. This comparison is not that far afield given that Michete has directed something of a love letter to that era. The video is reminiscent of the surreal music videos for bands like Whale's, "Hobo Slumpin Slobo Babe" and Sonic Youth's "Bull In The Heather."

The look of Michete's video is also reminiscent of the late '90s film Velvet Goldmine and one also can't help but wonder if this too was intentional as there is a definite glam rock vibe here. The players definitely work it as much if not more than Fifth Harmony. Visually that is where the similarities end though as Michete's actual song is more in the line of hip hop with rapped verse and sung bridges. The music video and song itself are both short, sweet and sassy which makes it absolutely ready for clubs if not radio.
