At midnight on Friday, the music video for "Don't Call Me an Angel" dropped online, a confusing two months ahead of the film it was made for, the upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot starring possible future gay superhero Kristen Stewart.
The song -- which brings together a "gay rights" dream team of Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey -- is very much an Ariana song, but Miley and Lana manage to interject some of their signature flair on their respective verses. The girls are alternately dressed as Victoria's Secret angels (an interesting choice given that we're living in a post-Victoria's Secret World) and super spies. Del Rey throws knives, Cyrus boxes, and Grande...uses a walkie talkie.
The looks are simple but effective. Miley has never been hotter -- the cut on her face is one of the sexiest things I've seen all week -- and wears jewelry by Out favorite Alan Crocetti. Lana looks about as happy to be there as you'd expect Lana Del Rey to be, and it's not her first time doing a song for a big Hollywood blockbuster (nothing will ever top her cover of "Once Upon a Dream" for Maleficent.). And it's not her first Ariana Grande collaboration either; just last week she covered the pop princess' "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" for BBC Radio One.
Rebooting Charlie's Angels (again) is an interesting choice -- the early 2000s version starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu is nothing short of perfection -- but if anything is going to get the gays excited to see the film, it's this pop crossover event.
