Watch Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Boy Problems” Video Featuring Tavi Gevinson
Carly Rae Jepsen has premiered the appropriately light video for her communal breakup anthem “Boy Problems.” It starts out as a pity party with crumpled tissues and futile social media updates for a handful of brokenhearted women before they unite for a dance party. There’s also a fake funeral or something?
The visual was directed by Petra Collins and features Tavi Gevinson.
“Out of the blue, Petra reached out to ask if she could make a video for her favorite track of the album— Boy Problems,” Carly said about the collab. “What she didn’t know is that I had been following her online via Instagram and other outlets for a while and had become a HUGE fan of her photographs and artwork. I think she has a very gifted eye for a refreshing look at youth and beauty and the way she plays with color always stands out to me. So the answer was an immediate YES!”
Will it win the criminally under-appreciated pop star legions of new fans? Nah, but it’ll delight everyone who’s already on the CRJ train. Watch below.
