Oh, the things a budding young diva has to do for her art! Just ask the lovely Starshell, who spent a winter evening wrapped in a blanket in the cold Las Vegas desert recently before jumping into a freezing pool on the set of her “Birthday Girl” video shoot. Idolator has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Massachusetts singer-songwriter’s upcoming visual for her single. Bundle up and dive below! Interscope’s Starshell, whose name you may recognize from co-writing Kanye West’s 2008 smash “Love Lockdown”, isn’t just a birthday girl, as her slinky jam declares — she’s also the first female signed to Mary J. Blige’s Matriarch Entertainment label.

“I’m about to jump in the pool and it’s literally two degrees,” Starshell jokes on the set of her video. “But you know what? It’s what you gotta do. The cost of success. You gotta be fierce at all costs.”

Excellent point! Clearly someone’s been taking notes from Kylie Minogue’s own fierce pool antics.
