Halsey Ends Up A Bloody Mess In New 'I Am Not A Woman, I'm A God' Live Video
With the release of her fourth album, If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power
, in late August, Halsey
transformed into the sort of bold, forward-thinking artist her earlier work offered she was trending toward becoming. Aided by emphatically moody although never oppressive electronic and atmospheric orchestrations by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, one of the LP's standouts remains the insurgent "I Am Not a Woman, I'm a God."
In the latest video for the energetic track — filmed live, directed by Dani Vitale, and released by means of the YouTube over the weekend — Halsey sings the track in a pretty straight-ahead style, decked out in a white dress and standing amid a dazzling display of multicolored lights. If it were just this scene for three minutes, it'd make for a pretty compelling clip.
Although this is Halsey, so there's a twist. In this case, it's a ton of blood.
Around halfway through, she begins getting splattered with dark cherry-colored fake blood, and by the time the song ends, it's dripping down into her mouth, making a haunting Greco-Roman statuesque silhouette of violence. A pretty cool visual!
Contrasted with the song's regal although ominous original visual
, which finds Halsey claiming her power, this new version complements the inner turmoil of the song's lyrics quite nicely. "Every day, I got a smile where my frown goes," she sings in the opening version. "A couple bodies in the garden where the grass grows."
If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power
reached No. 2 on the Billboard
200 albums chart. It's a large accomplishment in Halsey's career as a visionary artist, which is why it came with a short film
to accompany its release. This latest "I Am Not a Woman, I'm a God" clip isn't segment of that, nevertheless get lost in it anyway above.
