If you’ve ever wished harm on the people your significant other dated before you, have we got a video for you.
Julia Michaels has unleashed the bloody, campy video for her new song “All Your Exes,” which fulfills the promise of the song’s lyrics: “I wanna live in a world where all your exes are dead.”
Directed by Blythe Thomas, the clip features Julia, sporting a variety of over-the-top wigs and tons of makeup, inviting all her boyfriend’s exes over to her house. She then kills them, props up their dead bodies around the dinner table and pretends to feed them. Good times!
And when one of the exes who turns out to be not quite dead makes a break for it, Julia hunts her down and finishes the job…with a chainsaw. Oh, and her boyfriend in the video is played by her real-life love, JP Saxe.
“I think this is the most fun I’ve ever had making a music video,” Julia says in a statement. “I’ve never really played a character before, so it was fun to let loose and show a side of me that fans haven’t seen.”
“I feel like we all have those moments in relationships where our minds go to ridiculous places — like, clearly, I don’t want to kill your exes, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about it!” she laughs.
“All Your Exes” is from Julia’s upcoming debut album. She says that it “shows another side of me, because for the first time I’ve experienced a new kind of love, one that has been happy and healthy, and the songs reflect that. Oh, wow, that sounds gross hearing myself say that!”
