Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and UK singer Rita Ora will be performing their hit song “Black Widow” Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards. It will be the first time performing on the VMA stage for both women and they are promising a memorable performance. The collaborators told MTV news during rehearsal on Friday that the will be wearing “Lots of spider webs and rhinestones.”
The two have already exhibited a lot of chemistry. Not only have they produced a hit song, the two platinum blondes posted a photo on Instagram of the two sporting “Black Widow” varsity jackets. And like the music video that was recently released, Ora and Azalea may bring some of the elements of the video to life onstage, like their kung-fu-style fighting abilities.
Ora teased that “you can expect a lot of two blondes beating up dudes” as the performance will be about female empowerment. She told MTV news, “It’s a great opportunity for hot blondes to stick up for each other. Me and Iggy are so excited about this song.”
The music world has been excited about the song as well. The song is currently No. 8 on the Hot 100 list and has seen massive airplay on the radio. The Quentin Tarrantino-inspired music video only helped the song’s popularity. The two are dressed in jumpsuits in a video filled with sword fighting as the sexy samurais who take on the bad guys. On Sunday night, some rhinestones will be added to those jumpsuits in a performance that will definitely have Beyonce smiling.
