By now we know that Erika Jayne has some "XXpen$ive" taste, and she's putting it all on display in her upcoming music video for the appropriately titled track. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pop star just filmed her latest visual, and you can bet that it's going to include all the landmarks that make an Erika Jayne video an Erika Jayne video event.
The Daily Dish caught up with Erika on set in Los Angeles last week, where she exclusively revealed that the clip is going to have "over-the-top, '80s, Miami" vibe with equal parts fab "excess" and all the great things that have come to define the flashy decade. Sounds like fun to us already!
With such an iconic time period to pull references from, Erika explained the specifics we may see when the video drops. Hint: think bombshell. "First off and foremost, it's '80s Madonna all the way down," she told The Daily Dish. "There's a little Pam Anderson thrown in there, even though she's a '90s icon. All the great hair and makeup references [of that time], the supermodels of the '80s. Cindy Crawford a little bit; and that's what makes it so cool." And as you can see, the fashions Erika and dancers are wearing are definitely eye-popping, including, "super french-cut leotards and crunchy hair and all that fun stuff," according to the artist herself.

For this cheekily-titled track and video, Erika once again worked with her creative director Mikey Minden on the visual, who cited Miami Vice and Scarface among the main inspirations. "This is the wild, wild world of Erika Jayne. It's over-the-top fabulous, full of '80s fantasy," he said. "It's very screen siren bombshell. T**s and ass, tons of hair, super fashion-forward retro remixed but still thinking 2017 because that's when this will be coming out. [It has] full Erika Jayne fantasy all the way."

And while Erika's "pat the puss" has become her signature move, Mikey noted that there's a new move that everyone will be doing once the video debuts. "There is a secret move that I'm not gonna reveal, but it's on the floor. We have something that will top that," he teased.
When the video does premiere, Erika just wants everyone watching it to walk away feeling, well, happy. "I want them to have a good time," she said. "It's my goal to always bring a smile to everyone's face. No one should ever read too much into it. The title of the song is 'XXpen$ive;' it's over-the-top. It's fabulous and it's meant to be fun." -Reporting by Abigail Cusick
