Kelly does her dirty laundry in an ocean of tears.

When we initially saw the teaser videos to Kelly’s “Dirty Laundry” video, we knew it was going to be good but we had no idea that they we saving the best for the video premiere. Not only is this new video a visual treat with blacks, metallics and jarring oranges and reds making up the colour scheme, but it’s also something of a cinematic metaphor. Kelly finds herself literally bathing in an ocean of her own tears while being forced to face herself in the mirror and at some point even drowning. Apart from a DC3 silhouette and dinner gone completely bad, there isn’t much else to see in the video but it’s this very simplicity fused with the sharp eye of a genius artistic director that makes this one of the best videos of the year.
