Eminem joins Skylar Grey in the new video for “C’mon Let Me Ride,” the first single from her upcoming album Don’t Look Down. Em has certainly mastered the art of parody and Grey takes a chapter from his book with visuals that are intended to make fun of the hypersexualized entertainment industry…and beyond.
“I’m poking fun at the overtly sexualized aspect of everything in this world today,” Grey told MTV News of the clip. “The video is a combined effort between director Isaac Rentz, me and Eminem, and we just wanted to make sure it was very clear that it’s a sarcastic song.”
How about her sexy scene in the video?
“There’s one scene in the music video where I’m dressed up in this pink polka-dot swimming suit with a pink background, pink nails, a pink bicycle with an ice-cream cone on the back of it and it’s totally girly — and not me at all,” she explained. “I think that’s clear, because that scene happens over the bridge of the song, where I say, ‘I’m only f—ing with you, and f— you for thinking it’s true,’ and that’s when I have the pink polka-dot thing on, so it’s saying, ‘This isn’t really me.’ “
