Britney Spears Gives Iggy Azalea a Makeover, Gets Abducted by Aliens in 'Pretty Girls' Music Video

In the best way. The video for Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s collabo -- a riff on Geena Davis’ ‘80s cult classic Earth Girls Are Easy -- includes a dance break at the car wash, UFOs, and one seriously bizarre Valley girl comedy scene. WTF is that accent, Iggy-Iggs?
There’s a lot to love here, like the fact that Britney looks super cute and seems to be having a lot of fun:

But we also have questions: Like, why is Britney’s hair constantly changing from long to short, even though her outfit stays the same? And why would she do aliens again, when she perfected the alien music video with “Oops...I Did It Again”?
Why would she let Iggy embarrass herself trying to top Britney’s crash-into-a-pool-and-look-sexy-getting-out-of-the-water scene from “My Prerogative”?
And why -- WHY! -- would there be a cutaway to a perfume bottle that isn’t Fantasy by Britney Spears?!
It just seems wrong. Anyway, time to rewatch it again. And again. And again.
