Amandla Stenberg’s Glorious Quest For World Domination Continues With Their Music Video Debut

You knew when the time came for Amandla Stenberg to star in their own music video, they would also direct it and edit it. You just knew it. Because there is nothing Amandla Stenberg cannot do. This week in their glorious quest for world domination, they rolled out a cover of Mac DeMarco’s “Let My Baby Stay,” which is on the soundtrack of their latest film, Everything, Everything. Stenberg claps and sways in a hazy rainbow room while their pals stare at phones like an episode of Black Mirror and the whole time Stenberg’s just singing about this girl they were made to love. A flame of queer brilliance in this dark world.

Everything, Everything hits theaters next Friday.

  1. So happy for Amandla that they have the space to create art that is really obviously queer & not just movies that look pretty cisheteronormative (not that they can’t be just as genderqueer/bisexual in that, just that it’s aimed at a different audience)
