Ellie Goulding’s ‘On My Mind’ Video Unfurls a Glossy Revenge Fantasy

Ellie Goulding’s just released the music video for her new single “On My Mind,” the lead track from her upcoming album, Delirium. Directed by Emil Nava, the visual’s a glossy, high-budget Vegas affair — lots of pastels and glitter here. Goulding herself sits calmly as the narrative unfolds, a verbally abusive man screaming in her face as she cocks her head, staring at the camera with glazed-over eyes before launching into a full scale “Bitch Better Have My Money” revenge scenario. There’s also a wonderfully odd scene in a hair salon in which the Brit sits nearby a horse, crossing her legs in time with the melody. Watch it below.
