BiBi Zhou and the Five Directors She Should Collaborate With

Floria Sigismondi

This is the part when we start to get tricky.

How likely is it for Bibi to actually get Floria Sigismondi for one of her videos? Not very, but if she could… she should.

The Italian-born Canadian director made her film debut in 2010 with The Runaways, but her music video career spans almost 20 years worth of varied music, generally of the rock type. Her videography includes music videos for the likes of Marilyn Manson — the almost iconic, The Beautiful People [MV] — Incubus’ Megalomaniac [MV], Muse’s Supermassive Black Hole [MV], and the White Stripes’ Blue Orchid.

A YinYueTai version is available.

However, Sigismondi isn’t above “pop” music or its variants, having worked with Sarah McLachlan on her video for Sweet Surrender [MV], Sheryl Crow’s Anything But Down [MV], and even Katy Perry’s E.T. [MV] and The One that Got Away [MV]. But even more on point, Floria Sigismondi was in charge of Christina Aguilera’s first positive image makeover with her singles for Fighter [MV] and Hurt.

A YinYueTai version is available.

With the release of Black Apple [MV], Zhou began showing a bit more of a rock side to her, which she has only been hinting at with the continuous promotion of her latest album, Dark.Select.Clear, which was just released yesterday.

    If we’re talking Faye Wong Grass Jelly Studio visuals, I hope Bibi gets them for a music video in the future.

    I also hadn’t seen those Bibi on white pictures before. Or at least, as big as they are.

    I hate to be the one that doesn’t know anything about BiBi Zhou; however, her current style suggests that she’d be a PERFECT model for Sigismondi. Her work is beyond stellar and Zhou just seems like an artist that could provide the kind of muse for Sigismondi’s mind.

    @amy, you re-posted already.

    If Bibi reaches Faye Wong status, my commendations. The new diva of Asia?

    @Camiele, what you can do to know everything, or more, about BiBi is check Amy’s reviews on here. If you actually go deep into her blog, you’ll find even more comments.

    Sigismondi might be a little too rock for BiBi atm, Black Apple seemed to be the most rocking track on her latest album, and she just shifts from one genre to the other. If she works with Muller, she can pave her way to Sigismondi.

      @ghost, Thanks for informing me :)

      As I said, I can only go by these pictures here, and her style (the superficial kind, I suppose) seem like just the aesthetic that Sigismondi goes for. But, you’re right, I need to look for into it. Thanks :)
