Polina Gagarina — Russia’s glamorous Eurovision 2015 singer — was a vision in white in Vienna (and everywhere else since then). But in her new video for the song “I Will Not”, she goes dark — and in more ways than one.
The video opens with a black-haired Polina discovering that her man is a bit of a playboy with a wandering eye (and presumably a wandering set of hands). So she dies her hair blonde, throws on a mask, and pulls a fast one on him by luring him from a nightclub to his hotel room. Unaware that he’s just cheated on Polina with, um, Polina, he falls asleep and she takes a series of selfies — without her mask. He’s shocked when he wakes to discover what just went down.
According to her YouTube description, the song uses dance music to “seriously reflect on the eternal question of the relationship of man and woman.” The EDM accents have quite a bit of edge, and showcase a new side of Polina. We love it — and the lyrics of a woman finding herself amid her man’s wrongs. “I will not wait for you anymore, gonne leave you in the past,” she says. “Now you don’t mean a thing to me.”
