Red Hot Chili Peppers Dump Kreayshawn
Pop rap upstart Kreayshawn directed a video for The Red Hot Chili Peppers' new single, but the SoCal funk-rockers decided to scrap the clip. Kreayshawn has directed several videos despite being a film school dropout and rising to fame as a YouTube sensation-turned-rapper.
“We had one sort of failed attempt at making a video for this song, which was indoors and just kind of dark and dank and not really fun or anything, so we thought, ‘Let’s go with the opposite of that,' and the opposite of that was a rooftop," said lead singer Anthony Kiedis to MTV News.
In a previous interview, Kreayshawn had raved about working with one of the most beloved rock bands in the world.“It’s got that organic feel, but it still gives the band a great shine and they look fu**ing awesome," she said about the video. "They are looking off the chain, man. Anthony’s in there looking like a swimsuit model."
