Olivia Rodrigo had the help of a few famous pals to pull off her “Brutal” music video. On Monday, the singer dropped the Petra Collins-directed visual featuring models, actors, and dancers putting on their best “unrelentlessly upset” faces.
The energy of this video follows the narrative set out in Rodrigo’s previous collaboration with Collins, when they worked together on “Good For You” earlier this year. Drawing heavily from Y2K trends, Rodrigo hops from scene to scene in “Brutal” with a handful of Gen Z’s brightest stars, like The White Lotus‘s Lukas Gage, Moxie‘s Nico Hiraga, and high-fashion model Salem Mitchell.
Even though it’s “messy” to be a teen in 2021, at least Rodrigo’s in good company. Watch the full music video above, and check out the cameos ahead.
Peter Parker Faces Off Against a Multiverse of Villains in the Spider-Man
Spider-Man: No Way Home follows the events kicked off in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Peter’s identity as the web-slinging hero was revealed. The trailer shows that Peter, his girlfriend, MJ, and his family are under immense pressure after Mysterio blamed Spider-Man for drone attacks in London. Peter reaches out to Dr. Strange for help getting the public to forget about his life under the mask, but things go awry on Bleeker Street. Dr. Strange and Peter know “very little” about the multiverse, but thanks to Disney+ series like WandaVision and Loki, we’re set up to expect a wild ride.
Peter’s desire to live two different lives upsets the space-time continuum and opens the door for all kinds of characters from both previous Spider-Man film franchises. The villains are the main event, with a flash of lightning signaling the return of Jamie Foxx’s Electro, a glowing green orb representing Willam Dafoe’s Green Goblin, and the face-to-face reunion with Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock. There’s still no confirmation as to whether earlier Peter Parkers, like Andrew Garfield and Tobey MaGuire, will make an appearance, but we’re willing to wait around until the film’s release on Dec. 17 to find out.
