Per Hollywood Life:
The 2000’s had Jessica Simpson and The Dukes of Hazzard, and now, 2020 has Halsey and her new video for “You Should Be Sad.” Like her daisy duke-wearing predecessor, Halsey delivered just as much cowgirl-themed hotness in short shorts for her brand new video that dropped on Jan. 9! Pairing the booty shorts with a studded bikini top and a cowboy hat, Halsey heated up the country music genre as she danced with her fellow cowgirls and cowboys in a barn that could’ve been mistaken for an Xtina music video set as well! That wasn’t the only pop culture reference fans caught.
Halsey swapped her cowgirl uniform for multiple outfits and beauty looks, which Twitter user @manicktm linked to other pop star icons: Halsey’s glitter tears were a tribute to Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” music video, her leopard suit was a wink at Shania Twain in “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and her flowing platinum hair was a direct parallel to an American Horror Story scene featuring Lady Gaga.
