Who can blame Chloe Lattanzi for trying to get in the pop music game? After all, her mom is none other than Olivia Newton-John who got us “Physical” in the early ’80s and thanks to her iconic role as Sandy in 1978’s “Grease,” is basically a cultural icon.
Lattanzi, 25, is a bit more — how should we put this? — creative than mom. In her debut video for the single “Play with Me,” the aspiring singer writhes around in a tub with electrical appliances while a somewhat catatonic dude sits on the toilet beside her, reading a newspaper and — we can only assume — conducting some business. She also sports some special effects make-up on one arm and pals around with chicks who seem to have OD’d on coke.
According to a press release, Lattanzi came up with the idea for the video herself while watching an “avante garde horror film.”
“The concept is actually quite dark, but not literal in meaning,” says Lattanzi. “It’s about dying inside in front of the one you love, and that person not noticing what’s really going on inside you — being unseen, unheard, and desperate for love and attention.”
We could not agree more with the notion that Chloe Lattanzi is desperate for attention. Expect a full-length album’s worth of “pay attention to me” later this year.
P.S. While the video doesn’t show anything explicit, it does have some violent scenes — cheezy though they may be — that you may not want to watch at work or with your elementary school-aged children.
