Australian rapper Iggy plays Cher Horowitz, nailing every detail of her queen-bee vibe, right down to the yellow plaid skirt-suit. Of course, this is a modern, updated version of the classic—instead of the original Cher’s amazing rotating closet, Iggy has a closet app on her iPad.

Elsewhere in the music video, a Dionne lookalike wears a furry hat, Brit pop darling Charli XCX vamps a la Brittany Murphy’s Tai, and a line-up of teen queens dance in sporty, black-and-white outfits on a tennis court.

Here’s the music video:
