George Michael set to release a new song with Kate Moss in the video
Bolstering her career as a music video actress further, Kate Moss is set to appear in the August launch of George Michael’s new video to life-saving effect.
Though famed for her work as a supermodel, Kate Moss has had her fingers in a few other ‘career’ pies, in recent years. There has been her collaborations with Sir Phillip Green for her own sell-out clothing lines for Topshop, a dabbling or two behind a microphone – the less said about that the better – and a few cameo appearances on TV or music videos. Almost the whole British nation saw her supermodel spoof in this year’s return of the infamous, fashion-based sitcom Ab Fab, but how many of us can remember her starring role in The White Stripes’ ‘I Just Don’t Know What to Do With Myself’ video in 2003? Cast your mind back and yes, it was her who was pole dancing for pretty much the whole length of the song.
Having also appeared in Primal Scream’s ‘Some Velvet Morning’ video, Elton John’s ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ and a few Oasis numbers it’s no surprise Kate has been sought after again in the music video stakes. Her next appearance is actually a pretty big deal for supermodel Kate, though.
Indeed, having told newspapers earlier this year that one of her earlier career regrets was missing out on a part in George Michael’s iconic music video ‘Freedom’, it was only a matter of time before good old George took the hint and went and cast the beauty in another starring role.
This week saw the singer confirm rumours of Kate’s cameo role via the social media site Twitter. The premise of the video for Michael’s new single ‘White Light’, which is about his recent battle with pneumonia, was also confirmed.
‘Oh and by the way, in the video, a certain supermodel saves my life. We shot two endings, one with the Heimlich manoeuvre…and one where she gives me full on CPR. Mouth to mouth. Not really,’ he tweeted. ‘But honestly, she is my saviour, on film at least.’
With the image of supermodel Kate conducting a life-saving spectacle firmly ingrained in your head, the bad news is that you’ll have to wait until early August to see the video.
‘White Light’ is released on August 12. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on YouTube for any sneak preview.
