Maisie Peters steals the show in ‘Not Another Rockstar’ music video

Maisie Peters is no stranger to storytelling in her music and ‘Not Another Rockstar’ is no exception to that. Her fourth release of the year shows a pop-centric, edgier side to Peters. 

This new era makes her devoted fans more and more curious as to what her next album, ‘MP2’, might be like. 

The music video for ‘Not Another Rockstar’, directed byAvesta Keshtmand, follows Peters and her love interest (played by Reece Litchfield) through  Clapham Grand Theatre. The love interest vainly poses for the cameras while Peters drags him out of view each time. With the song centring around his vanity, selfishness and ‘Rockstar’ attitude, it seems only fitting that whenever he receives any screen time, it is met with an eye roll from Peters herself as she pulls him away from the limelight he so desperately craves. 

The punchy chorus kicks in with “Hand me down jewels and your dirty blonde hair / I think ‘You're so cool and different’ and then / The law pulls up and you won't get in the car / And I'm like, ‘Oh, goddamn, not another Rockstar’” but the focus is entirely on Peters as we move through the theatre. The scenes that encompass Peters’ energy are mainly set in a dressing room where we see her dancing around on her own and singing into a hairdryer. Both in her live shows and on screen, Peters shows time and time again that she is unafraid of letting go and enjoying herself – this music video is no exception to that. 

Fans have flooded the comments of the video on YouTube to praise Peters on her style, the relatability of the song/scenes in the video and to thank her for posting a warning at the start of the video regarding flashing lights. One fan stated that this video could be ‘her best video so far’ and received a unanimous agreement from other fans in the comments. Fans were so keen to catch her next move, her UK tour sold out in a matter of minutes when tickets were released last week. 

As she embarks on her US tour in the coming days, one thing is certain: Maisie Peters is going from strength to strength and fans are eagerly awaiting her next release.
