New Music Video: Beyonce

Beyoncé plays the wide eyed gamine in the video for "Countdown", a song you simply can't avoid loving.The video capitalizes on retro colorblocking and all things mod, featuring a blatant homage to Audrey Hepburn's infamous black on black with white socks ensemble from Funny Face. References abound, looks recall Bridget Bardot, Diana Ross, and such iconic dance movies as Fame and Flashdance - continual nods to the past that Beyoncé's modern image accumulates seamlessly.The glimpses of Beyoncé's brewing child are few; this girl barely looks pregnant! Nothing can stand in her away - bopping around, she bats her eyelashes, twirls her ponytail, and pulls out adorably silly faces a dance studio/warehouse/loft where a high school band plays the backing beat.



"Countdown" is off 4, an album surely to go down in history. After all, Beyoncé does rule the world.
