Norah Jones Gets Her Bloody Revenge In “Miriam” Video

Norah Jones‘ exquisitely angry …Little Broken Hearts is an album about just that — and, as it turns out, “broken” is literal. On it, the deceptively soft-spoken singer calls out, chases down and exacts revenge on her cheating boyfriend and his sidepiece (who’s dealt with on her very own track, the penultimate “Miriam”), and no, the names haven’t been changed to protect the not-innocent. Directed by Philip Andelman and shot in one smooth cut on Lake Bastrop in Texas, the video for “Miriam” follows up the story arc begun in “Happy Pills”, in which Jones, as a scorned ’50s housewife, makes sure her philandering husband gets what’s coming to him. With lyrics, “Miriam, you know you done me wrong / I’m gonna smile when / You say goodbye,” go ahead and level a guess at who gets theirs in the gorgeous and disturbing sequel. Head over to SPIN to watch Norah Jones’ “Miriam” video.
