Jenny Lewis has a new music video. Watch it. Watch it now (but read this first).
Jenny Lewis’ new music video might be the best thing on the internet this week. Not only is the song, Lewis’ new single Just One of the Guys all about gender roles and why they’re awful, but the video features kickass ladies Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson, rocking out and – at some points – dressing up like dudes. It looks like it was fun to film. The former Rilo Kiley confirmed as much in a recent interview with GQ, where she promoted her upcoming album, Voyager.
Lewis is stepping up her solo game.
"We screamed with laughter all day, huddled behind the monitor," Lewis tells GQ. "I haven't laughed that hard since What About Bob? came out on laser disk."
Oh and, for everyone who has ever wondered what the ladies would look like in drag… weird. Just plain weird. According to Lewis all the ridiculousness – Hathaway’s rat-tail stache, Stewart’s Bieber-esque look, the tracksuits – was on purpose. In fact, the actresses came up with some of the details entirely on their own.
Kristen Stewart channelled her inner Justin Bieber for the hilarious video.
"The rat-tail was all Annie," Lewis says, praising the Oscar-winning Les Misérables actress for her wardrobe addition. "Deep character exploration. Her dude is a bit more Backstreet Boy than the rest. Melancholy Backstreet Boy is what I think she was going for—he really feels things deeply and break dances like a mother--ker."
It’s all very conceptual, is what we’re saying. Also really, really cool.
We give youtube makeup gurus two days before the Anne Hathaway Just One of the Guys videos start popping up.
