The video features Christina engulfed in an over-sized, dreamy parachute in several scenes and it perfectly encompasses the steamy sound and lyrics of the tune, which the 33-year-old singer confirms is inspired by her relationship with Lil Wayne.
“It’s safe to say it is about the man in my life, yes,” Christina tells ETonline. “There’s nothing better than that feeling of new chemistry when you’re so into someone and you could care less about what anyone else thinks… and there’s butterflies! It’s a real feeling that people experience.” How cute!
So, what does it mean to be a “rebel” for someone?
“For me, I’m so inspired by the relationship that I’m in that it’s definitely an experience. It’s that careless, hopeless, romantic love – that feeling of ‘I will do anything for you’ and it’s just incredible and so yea, ‘rebel for you’ means ‘I’m all about you.’ We love that!
“He’s very special to me, yeah,” she answered when asked if the couple is in love.
As for whether or not she sees wedding bells in their future, well, she was a little more coy about that.
“You never know, I mean, love does inspire beautiful things like that,” she shared. “I don’t put too much pressure on one thing but I’m just living freely with him and we’re both very happy. I feel like if you don’t put too much expectations and too much high-hopes into things then everything will fall into place.”
Christina reveals he’ll be on a song called “Do It,” which she notes has a “cool, laid-back house party feel to it… circa '90s Janet Jackson." Another rapper she’d love to see contribute to the EP? Label-mate Drake.
We won’t have to wait long to hear the sure-to-be catchy tracks -- her EP is scheduled for release this June!
2015 is proving to be a huge year for Christina. In addition to the release of her EP, her E! reality show, Christina Milian Turned Up has been renewed for a second season. The stylish star is also opening a clothing store in Los Angeles this summer for her clothing line, We Are Pop Culture.
