Lambert portrays her best Stepford Wife in the beginning of the video, perfectly coiffed and gowned…but quickly degenerates into a reasonable facsimile of—dare we say it?—Courtney Love, complete with ripped fishnets, tangled blond hair, cigarettes, and smeared makeup.
But, aside from the fun of seeing Lambert unravel into a punk-rock mess, most notable is how the singer’s acting skills have expanded considerably with this project. She displays a pitch-perfect balance of humor with drama in the clip, right down to the forced/crazed smile she sports while examining a carving knife at the dinner table.
Lambert’s noted before that she has no real desire to act (her one-off spot last year on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit notwithstanding). But I dunno. With this latest performance, I think it won’t be long before we see a lot more of Lambert in the acting capacity—and not just on reality shows like the Voice and Project Runway. What do you think?
