Mary’s (PRB admin) take on the video for Sweet Nothing: While Flo is at a “gentlemen’s” club I think that when she takes her shirt off it does not seem like she is trying to seduce people but free her self from emotional pain. The other people in the club seem numb even when Flo losses it on stage. She was abused by her ex but the club owner tries to use more violence to solve the problem which ends up hurting Flo. This is a vary anti-violence video. The ex while he did evil things to Flo, is shown as human and it is not right he is being beaten. There is a glance of confidence in Flo’s eyes which hints that she will heal. I love the complexity of this video. At 3:52 Clavin does not look happy I think he is mad at Flo for her showing pain instead of acting sexy. Florence tweeted that people should watch the video if they wanted to see her “disastro stripping” implying her character was trying to make a scene. Leave it to Flo to be in a video where she takes her shirt off to rebel angst being used. (I made these comments on Florence and the Machine Fan Club Facebook page which has a tumblr that you may want to follow if your a Flow.)
What I love about Flo’s work is that they can take on many different interpretations. What do you think of or get out of the video?
This is a blog about natural redheads and redheads at heart. The Pre-Raphaelites were a group of British artists from the 1840's that are know for Romanticism and painting redheads. On this tumbler there will be spotlights on redheaded artist and redheads in other fields. Also, there will be musings about being a redhead. Plus there will be links to site about redheads. That's pretty much it in a nutshell!
