This is a new video for Be Mine, the song that really lured me into Robyn's music. For some reason I'd been ignoring this, but it's artful stuff, more short film than video, if you know what I mean. PopJustice kids have noticed a lot of Madonna references, especially to Open Your Heart. There is an assumption that the little boy is a boy, but I am not so sure.
I love Robyn's edgy look. She doesn't always feel the need to feature cute or beautiful. I also admire her ability to do good work that probably doesn't cost a lot (Roisin shares this creativity). Be Mine may make it onto my best videos of 2007 list.
I feel like she is giving me what Bjork no longer does... here is a video interview with Robyn. No surprise, she's smart. And I love how she doesn't hold back about what she thought of Prince's live show.
BONUS: For those who wonder what happened to Felix Howard, the young model who played Madonna's sidekick in Open Your Heart, you'll be interested to know he became a songwriter, most notably of Sugababes hit, Overload. He looks quite grown up now...
