Kylie Minogue has delivered some of the most memorable and innovative videos in the history of popular music but “I Was Gonna Cancel” is not one of them. The flawless diva simply stands in a bustling crowd of people and makes jerky hand movements while looking generally adorable. There is, however, a thoughtful explanation for the seemingly bizarre concept.
“This video is an abstract look at pedestrian life and how we’re all just trying to get through and rise above everyday challenges,” Kylie explains. “Although the song talks about a real life event that happened the day I recorded the song with Pharrell, the video has a more conceptual approach and I love how surreal it looks.” Fair enough. Watch up top.
