Kaia Gerber is following in her mother Cindy Crawford’s footsteps by starring in a music video.
The 17-year-old has been tapped to appear in former Public Access T.V. frontman John Eatherly’s video for his new single, Burnout, opposite 22-year-old model Oli Green.
“BURNOUT out now! had the best time making this video with the people I love,” she captioned some stills from the clip on her Instagram page. “Thank you @john.eatherly @jonahfreud@_promiseland_ and my lovely co-star @ooroosgreen. Superstars!”
The video, set in New York City, sees Gerber and Green embark on a love affair, while the singer-songwriter plays the role of the couple’s driver.
“One side is about the frustration of feeling like you don’t belong and how boring it can be when people all try to fit the same mould,” Eatherly told People. “The other side is about the romantic ‘rockstar’ fantasy of living a checked out blissful life of excess. That doesn’t tend to end well. The key is to never give a s**t about anyone’s approval other than your own.”
The musician teamed with co-directors Johann Rashid and Jonah Freud, who also revealed that the young model worked with them on the concept for the video.
“This video was conceived, confirmed and created in five days, out of friendship, love, and respect,” Freud shared. “We wanted to create something that felt like the music videos of childhood, occupying a space between suburban teen drama and metropolis darkness.”
Gerber’s debut comes 29 years after her supermodel mother appeared alongside Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington in George Michael’s Freedom! ’90 video.
However, the brunette beauty’s new clip is a far cry from Crawford’s risque appearance back in 1990, in which she was seen oiled up in a bathtub, singing along to the lyrics of the late music icon’s lyrics.
“They oiled me up and put me in an empty tub with a smoke machine to look like steam,” the 53-year-old previously recalled to Harper’s Bazaar. “I had to sit on an apple crate because you couldn’t see me over the edge of the tub.”
