Taking aim at the hyper-sexualized culture of youth in America today, Skylar Grey has released a music video for her song "C'mon Let Me Ride."
The catchy single features Eminem and was shot at a trailer park in Detroit. The 26-year-old singer explains to MTV News, "I'm poking fun at the overtly sexualized aspect of everything in this world today. The video is a combined effort between director Isaac Rentz, me and Eminem, and we just wanted to make sure it was very clear that it's a sarcastic song."
That sarcasm comes through pretty song as the video shows a scene of her playing Dr. Grey, a shady plastic surgeon whose results are only slightly exaggerated from what can be seen around Hollywood.
Making sure that fans don't take her seriously, Skylar adds, "There's one scene in the music video where I'm dressed up in this pink polka-dot swimming suit with a pink background, pink nails, a pink bicycle with an ice-cream cone on the back of it and it's totally girly — and not me at all. I think that's clear, because that scene happens over the bridge of the song, where I say, 'I'm only f---ing with you, and f--- you for thinking it's true,' and that's when I have the pink polka-dot thing on, so it's saying, 'This isn't really me.' "
The single will appear on her album Don't Look Down, scheduled to drop next spring. Eminem will executive produce the record. Catch the full video below.
