VIDEO: In bed with Beyonce! Behind the scenes on sexy star’s X-rated new video
CROWNING GLORY: Beyonce in the video for Haunted
Beyonce is famous for her high-octane dance routines and slickly choreographed videos, so it’s quite a shock to see her like this.
“Part of my challenge is to take her places that she hasn’t been, to take her out of her comfort zone,” Akerlund explains.
Well, we’re pretty sure he’s done just that.
Video director Jonas Akerlund says he wanted to take Beyonce out of her comfort zone
In this behind-the-scenes featurette, Akerlund talks about his work on Haunted and Superpower, both from Beyonce’s self-titled visual album.
“These two videos are a little unique because they have less choreography than she usually does,” he says.
Akerlund says that the video for Haunted is inspired by the music, which has a cinematic feel to it.
The lavish settings and bright jewel tones are reminiscent of his video for Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi.
The retro styling and X-rated content remind us more of Madonna’s infamous Sex project.
