Can't get you out of my Head

Kylie comes screaming into the voyeurs lap in a canary yellow kit car, draped in black; lipstick a pale tan colour to match the tan gloves that wrap around the gear stick. Hand and mouth powerful yet non obtrusive. The dark horse driving into whose head? Which head?

Watch the video again. The scarlet lips (men’s least favourite lipstick colour) and cleavage don’t appear until after the car scene. Whilst driving, the power she yields does not need any of the conventional symbols of sexiness. Yet again the car is the sexual object working as a character of the woman’s empowerment.
