Sky Ferreira Just Scored Extra Points For Casting Michael Madsen In Her "Obsession" Video

Violence, from a distance, has always caught my attention. Weird, I know. Maybe it's a fascination with the human condition. Taxi Driver is my favorite movie (thanks for introducing me to that one at an impressionable age, mom!). And naturally I've taken in, oh, all of Quentin Tarantino's flicks over the years.

So color me giddy, if not a bit surprised, that the object of desire in question in teen poplet Sky Ferreira's "Obsession" video turns out to be none other than Michael Madsen, here in full-on Reservoir Dogs Vic Vega—aka "Mr. Blonde"—mode. Let's just overlook the fact that she's 18 and he's 53, and she's rolling around like a sex kitten while fantasizing about him, shall we?

No, Madsen doesn't saw some poor cop's ear off in Sky's vid. He does, however, snip off some tied-up chick's hair. Worry not. She's a "mean girl."

Don't get me wrong—I still think "Obsession" as a song is a bit of a letdown after Ferreira's far superior offering "One."

But at least we get to see Madsen in his greatest roll since he got wasted by a black mamba in Kill Bill.

    i love sky ferreira and i think she has potential to be a favorite of mine but i'm just not a big fan of this song, i agree "one" is a trillion times better.... she should get closer to robyn and further away from kesha and katy perry, this song is a step on the wrong direction...
    but don't worry sky// i'm still a fan...

    Anonymous, I play "One" on a daily basis. I don't think I heard "Obsession" the whole way through till this video.
