Cardi B dons a gold breastplate by Pakistani artist Misha Japanwala in her new 'Rumours' music video
Pakistani artist Misha Japanwala, who is known for her wearable sculptures, has made headlines again, this time for her work being featured in the music video for Cardi B and Lizzo's new song 'Rumours'.
Japanwala has worked with Cardi B before as well when she made a mould of her for her pregnancy announcement. This time, the young artist made a custom gold breastplate and arm cuff for the rapper.
"You thought I was finished?!" Japanwala wrote on Instagram, sharing a video clip from the song. "If you need me I’ll be blasting the speakers and shaking my a** to this song for the rest of the weekend. Not sorry to my neighbours," she said.
Japanwala's work centres around the female body and she often makes wearable breastplates. They've also been featured in Vogue and model Gigi Hadid's Gigi’s Journal Part II, a special issue of V Magazine.
“This is the reclamation of our bodies in art and how we want to depict them and what we want to say about them,” the 25-year-old told Vogue in a February 26 interview. “The art that we consume globally is so heavily focused on the perspective of men and their view of female nudity.”
The artist also made it to the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list earlier this year for her work.
The song, 'Rumours', is the first musical collaboration between Lizzo and Cardi B. The duo previously starred in the 2015 movie Hustlers together. The song was released on August 13 and has over four million views on YouTube so far.
