Video: Elle Varner – ‘I Don’t Care’

Elle Varner

Elle Varner goes against the norm in the powerful video for “I Don’t Care,” the latest single off her debut album Perfectly Imperfect. Shot in Brooklyn, the Lenny Bass-directed clip shows interracial and same sex couples that are hopelessly in love despite disapproval from outside forces. Although they battle discrimination, love wins out at the end of the day.

The R&B songstress, who was recently endorsed by First Lady Michelle Obama, will kick off her “Perfectly Imperfect” tour on September 22 in Jackson, Mississippi, and join Nas for a show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on New Year’s Eve.

    @Pereezy YMCMB-MMG, Nothing wrong with going pop. It’s not going to make her any less of a person. Whitney Houston was the Queen of Pop. Diana Ross was pop. Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, etc etc As long as she keeps RnB upheld and doesn’t abandon the genre or weaken it.

    I’m sick of the notion that Pop equals wack. That anything outside of RnB, R&B, Rap or Hip-Hop equals wack/less than black or uncool. Chill. Ignorant statement.

    @iBzThuggin’, No problem with going pop, unless the artist abandons the genre they began with. Hate this deluded mentality.

    @iBzThuggin’, CORRECTION. Whitney came in this game as a Pop artist. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” “How Will I Know” POP. Her second album was a Pop record with R&B influences. Still mainly POP. Her greatest hit “I Will Always Love You” was a remake of a single originally sung by Dolly Parton. She was even booed when at the Soul Train Awards back in the 80s. She was called a sellout. An uncle Tom etc etc. But it passed. Now nobody remembers that do they? Sure she branched out into R&B but her professional roots were in Pop. Her training in Gospel. She was a Pop Artist. Case closed.

    Although this isn’t a “Refill” type hit, the video is great and I like the message it delivers. Am I the only one who kinda gets like an Amel Larrieux vibe from her?

    the video had a good concept, the song is truly amazing to me, but the video was directed or written horribly. The portrayal doesn’t match the greatness of concept or of the song. Should’ve hired another director or screen writer or something
