Ariana Grande Gets Silly in Space for ‘Break Free’ Video
Ariana Grande might not have the Song of the Summer — that would by Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s “Fancy” — but she certainly is the Star of the Summer. Hot off the success of “Problem,” she collaborated with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on “Bang Bang,” and just yesterday, she released another new song featuring rumored boyfriend Big Sean. Today, she has graced us with the goofy space-themed video for “Break Free.”
The “Break Free” video takes place in space and begins with campy Star Wars-esque scrolling text that claims, “It is just one step ahead of present day reality and two steps ahead of present day sexiness.” This turns out to be an accurate statement, as Grande spends the rest of the video shooting B-Movie aliens, floating in zero gravity, and just generally doing her best Barbarella impression. Unfortunately, looking at Grande sing the words to the song doesn’t make the words any easier to understand.
