The paparazzi shots show Azalea and Ora romping around in skintight body suits, with Ora sporting a wig reminiscent of Uma Thurman's 'do from Kill Bill. The bodysuits, too, take a cue from Thurman's yellow KB duds. Other images show the entertainers wielding samurai swords, Thurman's Deadly Viper Assassination Squad Black Mamba character's weapon of choice. Plus, Michael Madsen, Kill Bill's Budd, makes a cameo in the video.
Aside from the glaring Tarantino references, "Black Widow" treads further into "Telephone" territory with what looks like a diner scene. According to Azalea's Instagram feed, the video will begin with a diner sequence, with Azalea playing a (non nipple-baring) waitress. (Gaga played a waitress in her video, too.) Sure, "Telephone" climaxed at the diner, but that very environment is enough to sound the proverbial air horn that something's up.
This isn't and won't be the last time an artist's work eerily resembles another's, but with the buzz surrounding Nicki Minaj's Shadegate, the last thing Azalea needs is another attack at her authenticity.
