Ava Max Sings Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Britney Spears in a Game of Song Association | ELLE


♪ Oh baby baby how was
I supposed to know ♪ (laughs) – Hey guys it’s Ava Max
and I’m here to play song association with Elle. I’ll
be given a word and I have ten seconds to sing that
word in a song wish me luck. I’m probably going to fail
at this cause I’ve always failed at games (exhales
loudly) growing up. Before we get into the game
be sure to check out my new single Torn, and video out
directed by Joseph Kahn. ♪ Me-e-e-e-e ♪ Was that a vocal warm up?
I don’t know but I just do that sometimes. Sweet ♪ Oh she’s sweet but a psycho
a little bit psycho at ♪ ♪ Night she’s screaming
I’m ma-ma-ma out my mind. ♪ Yup I knew that one. I actually
performed Sweet but Psycho at the VMA’s, it was
such a surreal moment. It was the first time at the
VMA’s as well as a nominee, and the energy was crazy
the fans were wild. I felt like it didn’t even happen, it went by so quickly
and I am still shaking. (exclaims) Love. ♪ Just gonna stand there
and watch me cry, ♪ ♪ But that’s okay because
I love the way you lie. ♪ ♪ I love the way you lie. ♪ Baby. ♪ Hit me baby one more time . ♪ ♪ Oh baby baby how was
I supposed to know. ♪ (laughs) Oh my god hit me baby one
more time is probably the most iconic pop videos of all
time because it was just her first one, it was such an impact. It was amazing. We all fell in love with
Britney in that video. Drive. Ooh! Um (exclaims in frustration) ♪ Shut up and drive, drive, drive, drive ♪ ♪ I’m a weirdo ♪ Yup that’s it. That one that’s all I have. When I lived in South
Cackalacky, South Carolina, for like two years all I
would listen to was Rihanna. Disturbia, Rockstar. Oh my gosh I had that song on repeat. So good. Video. Video. Ooh that’s a tough one. (clock ticking) Video. (clock ticking) (buzzer sounds) Why is my brain– I need
more coffee. (laughs) My brain’s not working today people. Music. (clock ticking) I’m looking at the ceiling for answers. (laughs) (buzzer sounds) ♪ Music make you lose control ♪ ♪ Music make you lose control ♪ (imitating instrument noises) I don’t (murmurs) the production. (laughs) That was the first time
I saw Missy perform live was at the VMA’s, and my
jaw dropped the entire time. Oh man. That woman knows how to put on a show. After that I’m like all right
we all don’t exist after that. (giggles) It’s pretty iconic. Think. Think. Think is a tough one. (humming a tune) Right there has to be– (clock ticking) I’m like looking at her for answers. (laughs loudly) Turn. (clock ticking) ♪ Turn around ♪ ♪ Every now and then I get
a little bit lonely and I ♪ (humming) ♪ Turn around ♪ Aye! Time. ♪ Time after time ♪ ♪ Time after time ♪ ♪ Time after time ♪ Blue. ♪ I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa ♪ ♪ Da ba dee daa ba dee ♪ I’m a weirdo I should shut
up right now before it gets too weird, but I’m blue. I’m blue. I have some blue on my nails. This was the first song I
did choreo to, I danced to. My dance teacher in Virginia
had me dance to this song. A lot of the choreography
for this was on the floor. It was pretty intense actually. (laughs) Eyes. ♪ You really know how to make me cry ♪ ♪ When you give me those ocean eyes ♪ (bell dings) Billie and I were both
nominated for best new artist and she totally deserved that win. I mean she’s had an incredible year. Down. ♪ Baby are you down down down down down ♪ ♪ Down, Down ♪ Call ♪ Hey I just met you ♪ ♪ But call me maybe,
but here’s my number ♪ ♪ So call me maybe ♪ Aye! What up. Carly Rae Jepsen. Yup Good. (clock ticking) ♪ I’m too good for you ♪ ♪ I’m way too good for you ♪ ♪ You take my love for granted ♪ ♪ You just don’t understand it, no ♪ Me. Me by Taylor Swift? ♪ Me-e-e Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ♪ Hey I’m the only one of me,
and you’re the only one of you. (clicks tongue) This is the first game
I actually did good in. Like what? Thank you to the viewers for helping me. Your energy really saved this. (laughs) For more song association,
you can subscribe to Elle. (blows a kiss)

    I didn’t like this. Or her. I’ve always loved these videos, but I don’t feel like she’s real. And she got a lot of lyrics wrong. And her voice is pitchy.
