Video: Charli XCX - Break The Rules

Making hay while the sun shines, here's pop-punk princess Charli XCX with her ode to skipping school, Break The Rules, time so perfectly to coincide with the start of a new school year.

The video finds the singer attending school, hijacking a school bus, and dancing at a school prom, so it's possible no-one listened to the lyrics but, hey, it looks great. (Although I'm 99% certain she's doing the ice bucket challenge wrong at the end.)

Charli XCX - Break The Rules

Charli's album Sucker arrives on 17 October and if it's anything as good as it's predecessor, we're in for a treat. Here's what she told Entertainment Weekly about the record backstage at Sunday's VMAs.

"There’s definitely a punk energy that runs throughout the record. Some people will hate it, but I’m really excited about it because I know some people will absolutely love it as well. I feel like that’s what a good album is. It’s very feminine, it’s raw. I see it as being like the color red when I listen to it."

More of that interview, plus Charli's backstage performance of Boom Clap, can be found on the end of this weblink.
