Beyond the music being hot garbage, the less-obvious downside to the culture’s fascination with Gaga is that now every chick on the planet thinks she needs to suddenly act like a weirdo, shave her head, and start wearing clothing with lots of 90-degree angles. Hey ladies, be yourselves and leave the unicorn steez to the OG loco Kelis! But Estelle, despite rockin out about how she’s a “Freak” in this legit weird Guetta collabo (weird because… Guetta??), remains the awesome badass she’s always been, doing great justice to her Soul II Soul riff and vamping cutely in a variety of outfits and um, black make-up. Plus she is singing about bondage on a video that feels like a throwback to C&C Music Factory or The KLF. 1990s house culture in full effect.
