‘Cloud Aura’ Video: Charli XCX Is a Honey Boo Boo Fan

You remember Charli XCX, yes? She's the British singer who co-wrote Icona Pop's "I Love It" (the most fun song on a very fun EP). And now here she is with Brooke Candy — a.k.a. Robo Girl from Grimes's "Genesis" video — for "Cloud Aura," which in its visual form is a tribute to Famous Women Weeping. There's Lauren Conrad's mascara tear; there's Britney explaining her meltdown; there's Ilsa thinking about how she'd really rather just stay in Casablanca and get it on with Rick. It is basically a Crying in Pop Culture bingo game — except for Honey Boo Boo, who stays sassing people no matter what. She's just the square in the middle, we guess? "Free" has been changed to "Honey Boo Boo." Be advised.
