In Fifth Harmony's "BO$$" video, the girl group pops, shimmies and shakes in white booty shorts, garter stockings and belly-baring tees. While the song is all about confidence, the choreography and outfits could have been considered too risqué for group whose average age is 18. Luckily, the girls tell us the people who they aim to please the most, their parents, were 100 percent onboard with the look.
"They were all present for the video shoot, actually," 18-year-old member Lauren Jauregui. "They thought that we looked great and were very supportive of us feeling confident. I think that was the main thing about the video, to show confidence. What we were wearing wasn't the main focus at all. We didn't even think about it to be honest, it became a whole thing after. It was more about getting across the message of the song, which was to be empowered and be comfortable with yourself."
For the sassy vid, the girls enlisted famed choreographer Fatima Robinson who's directed superstar music videos (Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It," Rihanna's "Man Down," Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time") and top productions like the 2011 Super Bowl.
"She is amazing," Camila Cabello says. "She's been creatively directing us ever since we started working on the new music. We showed it to her and she really liked it. She's been teaching us so much and has been leading us in the direction that we want to go in. And we're so thankful to have her as a part of our team because she has transformed [us]."
Normani Hamilton adds, "When she walks in the room, she seems like a queen ... you just don't have anything to say."
