Ella Henderson Teases Her Sassy Side After Working With Nicki Minaj Anaconda Director On Mirror Man Video – EXCLUSIVE

Ella Henderson is on the verge of unleashing a whole lotta sass, people.

That’s right, it turns out that the 19-year-old songstress has been holding back over the past seven months since the release of pop stomper ‘Ghost’ last summer.

But this all stops NOW.

Three top ten singles, a number one album, and two BRIT nominations on, Ella is back with ‘Mirror Man,’ her fourth cut from ‘Chapter One,’ and things are about to get feisty.

Speaking exclusively to Yahoo Celebrity, Ella revealed she worked with director Colin Tilley – the man behind last year’s most controversial music video.

“I can’t wait for people to see it, it’s very different,” Ella told us. “I’ve worked alongside the director Colin Tilley who was behind many amazing videos. He did the Anaconda video with Nicki Minaj so he’s definitely very diverse in what he does.”

Sounds good! Naturally we’re assuming a lot of booty shaking and body rolling, yes?

“When we were on set I asked him to teach me how to twerk. But don’t worry there isn’t any twerking in this video!”

Oh :(

“This video is studio based which is different for me. We wanted to keep it quite graphic, quite edgy. It’s a lot more sassy. We also had a black leopard on set called Percy, which was quite exciting.”

Annnnd she’s won us back with Percy the panther. Amazing.

Ella also kindly explained the premise of the song, which, and as it turns out, is about a good for nothing ex with a penchant for self-loving. Ella Henderson Teases Her Sassy Side After Working With Nicki Minaj Anaconda Director On Mirror Man Video - EXCLUSIVE

“It’s got a lot of anger in it. It’s a side to my character and personality people tend to not see unless they rub me up the wrong way!

“Writing this song at the time I was very angry and very mad. I’ve moved on now but at the time to let out of me felt very real and raw.

“I think we’ve all experienced some sort of mirror man or girl in our lives. If you haven’t you will at some point – someone who loves themselves before they can love you.”

Mirror Man is out March 9.
