This is not the first time pop singer Katy Perry has tweeted about local futuristic rap-rave duo Die Antwoord. A few months ago she mentioned on her Twitter account that she was buying some Die Antwoord music on iTunes.
More recently though on Twitter, Katy Perry (@KatyPerry) commented on Die Antwoord’s latest music video. “The new Die Antwoord video for Baby’s On Fire is so incredible I can’t even tweet about it,” she tweeted.
The seven minute video, co-directed by Die Antwoord’s frontman Ninja, stays true to their signature disturbing, explicit, weird, violent style they are known for. In the video Ninja keeps trying to murder Yo-landi’s boyfriends. At the end Yo-landi is shown taking a bite from a blood dripping heart she’s carrying. Horrific if you ask me! Certainly not for the faint-hearted.
