Charli XCX goes bowling in 'Breaking Up' video

Posted on

Charli Xcx

After watching the video for Charli XCX’s “Breaking Up,” you’ll want her to take you bowling. The singer, who hasn’t been shy about her love of ’90s culture, exploits that in the video, which features animation, animal print, and Ring Pops. Pair that with Charli’s anthem about an easy break up with a crappy guy, and hanging out in the pop star’s brightly colored world just seems like an awfully good time. 

The video opens with a sunglass-wearing Charli, sitting idly by as a guy brags to his parents about how girls in school want him. After breaking a glass, Charli informs him, “We had a good run, Patrick.” Cue Charli and her girls pitching bowling balls at guys. Count us in.
