I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman
Trinadian Canadian rapper k-os (the name’s an acronym for “Knowledge of Self”) has a new album, YES, that came out yesterday (11/17). And I mean, I already love the guy. But the title of this track just makes me love him sooooo much more. Yes, the title of this track is: “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman.”
Here, the grinding, sweaty women who stand for fame in so many other music videos have been replaced by the queen of innocence, Harvard grad Natalie P. And k-os is somewhere halfway between sincerity and irony, here — you know, that 2009 place. Which is not to say the video isn’t rife with hot women. It’s totally the best — k-os vaunts from some country bumpkin cowboy town to outerspace, where he dons an astronaut costume. We love him.
