Iggy totally has alien powers

This is an example of "it's so bad, it's good." There are so many conventionally bad ideas – we mean of the outrageous and cheesy kind – in Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea's Pretty Girls music video that after one or two replays we're starting to get used to it. At least we have aliens to blame for all the extravagance, product placement (see 2:26), mismatched fashion trends and, wait for it, money-vomiting ATM.

Iggy plays an extraterrestrial being whose ship conveniently crashes into Britney's swimming pool. The singer wastes no time in giving Iggy a makeover and introducing her to the Los Angeles way of life. An inevitable club jam ensues towards the end, after which more alien forces come to take Iggy home, Britney in tow. Now that isn't really outrageous at all.
