Iggy Azalea’s Clueless Tribute Rekindles Our Love For Cher Horowitz

The Australian rapper released a new music video that recreates the best movie to come out of the 1990s

Iggy Azalea just sent us straight back to the ’90s with the new music video for her song “Fancy.”

Is the video at all original? As if.

But it does make us all kinds of nostalgic for our favourite ’90s rom-com.

Dressed in that iconic yellow tartan, the Australian rapper channels her inner Cher Horowitz for the Clueless tribute, which she released yesterday on VEVO.

The video takes us through all the best scenes from the 1995 film. We see Cher using that outfit-matching computer game that we desperately wanted as a kid. (Now seen as an iPad app, natch.)

We see Cher and Dionne walking the high school halls, rocking matching tartan and knee-high socks.

We see the girls lined up in chic monochrome for gym class. (‘She could be a farmer in those clothes…’)

We see Cher and Tai busting a move at the party in the Valley. (‘Rolling with my homies…’)

We see the near-death experience on the freeway that caused Dionne’s virginity to go from technical to nonexistent.

The rapper dished to L.A.’s Power 106 radion station that they had hoped to get the film’s star to be a part of the project. ‘We attempted to arrange a cameo from Silverstone, but I wasn’t able to pull it off in time,’ she said. ‘Hopefully Alicia thinks that I did it justice.’

Basically, watching Iggy’s video is like watching the entire feature-length film in just over three minutes.

But instead of listening to Alicia Silverstone and Stacey Dash’s valley-girl accents, we’re hearing Iggy’s naughty, uncensored rap lyrics.

We’re not sure how Alicia will feel about it – but we’re pretty sure we’ll be watching it on replay. You know, as in not sporadically
