Working with director Melina Matsoukas, Aguilera tells a story of a sexy woman who hunts down men for pleasure.
Christina Aguilera is a men-killer, literally. The music video of "Your Body" was finally premiered on Friday, September 28, starring Aguilera as a sexy hot siren who kills men after seducing them.
The clip, which was directed by Melina Matsoukas, gave a notice in the front that "no men were harmed in the making of this video". Aguilera consults the oracle of what will happen to her that day before she hunts one man down. Her first victim is the guy she hitches a ride to, the second a guy she meets at a bar and the third a man behind register counter. Despite the killing act, the video omitted the violence by having blue paint and red confetti instead of blood.
"I worked with Melina Matsoukas on this video for 'Your Body,' who I was very drawn to because her work I saw in her other videos," Aguilera told MTV News. "It looked like she really caught a character and drew it out of them and really had a story to tell. You know, not needing or wanting or using a lot of background dancers or gimmicks or things like that."
Although her character is a bad girl, Aguilera refused to take on the title in real life. "The term bad girl should never be taken so seriously," she said. "It's definitely taken with a grain of salt, and I would never title myself as that. Maybe confident, self-assured, which is a message all women should take to heart and be themselves."
"Your Body" is the first single from her new album "Lotus" which will be released in November.
