Skylar Grey Gets Down and Dirty in ‘C’mon Let Me Ride’ Video [Teaser #2]

Eminem and Skylar Grey

Skylar Grey shows us her cheeky side in the second teaser for her Eminem-assisted single “C’mon Let Me Ride.” The singer-songwriter plays a sexy lumberjack in the provocative clip, which was shot at a trailer park in Michigan.

“I can be really goofy and I know that a lot of people think I’m just dark and sad and melancholy all the time, but that’s just one huge part of me,” says Skylar. “I’m also really silly and I have a really dirty mind. I can’t help it. It just goes there.”

But the video has a deeper message. “I’m kinda poking fun at the overly sexualized aspects of today’s culture and music and everything.”

The full video will premiere on Tuesday, December 11. If you missed the first teaser, check it out here.

“Why does everyone think I’m from a fu**ing trailer park? Why can’t I not break that stereotype?” laughs Em. “I’ve lived in them, many of them, for years. But that doesn’t mean I’m from a trailer park.”

The full video will premiere on December 11. Go behind the scenes below.
