Princess Nokia delivers her video for “Morphine.”
Princess Nokia has hit her fans with a relative follow up to her “Your Eyes Are Bleeding” video in which she revisits her teenage goth phase, except his time out instead of brooding on the road, she invites her buds for a rooftop party. A lack of readily accessible wilderness in NYC has residents often resorting to root top terraces and garden plots. You heard it here first: the future is vertical.
In “Morphine,” members of smart girl party crowd emerge from their afternoon wake-up call with their arms outstretch. Nokia, wearing aviator goggles atop her head, mocks her deep depression by challenging the forces working against her to smash her heart in pieces where it “looks good on the floor.”
On “Morphine,” Nokia wins plaudits for breaking age old stereotypes about social deviants or “outcasts,” but best of all she earns my respect for stringing together a light-rave in broad daylight. As Andrew W.K said earlier today, “Friday the 13th is actually one of the luckiest days for partying. Put it to good use and party 13 times harder.”
Get outside and break that losing streak.
