Pow! Ava Max Rolls Out Superhero-Themed “Torn” Video
It has been an eventful 24 hours for Ava Max. The breakout pop star performed an acoustic medley on the 2019 VMAs red carpet last night (August 26) and now rolls out an extravagant video for “Torn.” Directed by Joseph Kahn, the blockbuster video will do nothing to stop the comparisons with Lady Gaga. From the baroque setups to the hand-centric choreography, the influence of Mother Monster is all over this. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. If nothing else, the video is a throwback to a time when pop reigned supreme (and demanded big budgets).
The plot? Well, brunette Ava is really going through it with her man. She’s under-appreciated and extremely pissed off. Our heroine has enough and develops super powers when she gets her trademark asymmetrical hairstyle (at least that’s my interpretation). Before too long, the “Sweet But Psycho” hitmaker is doing good deeds and righting wrongs. But she still has a bone to pick with her shady boyfriend, who turns out to be a real piece of shit. Watch Ava kick some ass and rock some glamorous wigs below. It’s only a matter of time before this goes viral.
