Azalea felt the dynamic song deserved a proper visual treatment, so she hired the French directing duo Jonas & François (Madonna's 4 Minutes
," Muse's "Undisclosed Desires
") to helm the clip. The rapper took some inspiration from Outkast's "Bombs Over Baghdad (B.O.B.)
" video, the infamous lap dance scene in Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof
horror film and a certain a classic Australian musical for the clip. Regarding the latter, she told MTV News: "I really love Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
, which is an Australian film about some drag queens that go from Sydney in this bus called 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert' up to the Northern Territory, and it's about this adventure they have," she revealed.
"I really liked this film as a kid and always identified with it because it's [about] drag queens and they have to keep stopping in small rural towns and they're not accepted," she continued. "I always kinda felt that way with rap - trying to break into it, I wasn't accepted and I was out of my element, so I really love that movie, and it being Australian, I really wanted to draw reference from it. So there's little nods to that in the desert scene."
