Victoria Azarenka makes music-video debut in Redfoo song

Monday October 21st, 2013

ISTANBUL -- Victoria Azarenka tried to get out of making her acting debut in Redfoo's new video for Let's Get Ridiculous, but she finally caved and settled on a small role as a stewardess.

"I didn't want to be in that video, to be honest," she told reporters during her pre-tournament interview at the WTA Championships. "[He was] just trying to sneak me into every scene there was. I was supposed to be a mermaid, but I said, 'You are out of your mind. I'm not swimming in the water. It's cold.'"

It's not Azarenka's first foray into music: She has been dating Redfoo for almost a year, and he featured her signature grunt in a song released earlier this year.

How was the stewardess role for Azarenka (who makes a cameo at the 2:05 mark of the clip above)?

"I never really served drinks, and the glass kept sliding and I was a little nervous," she said.

It's a game effort from Vika, who joins her friend Caroline Wozniacki in music-video stardom. Oxygen. Never forget. After opening-round losses at the Tokyo Open and China Open last month, Azarenka visited Redfoo in Australia, where he is serving as a judge on The X Factor, before coming to Istanbul for her last tournament of the year. Azarenka is making her fifth straight appearance at the WTA Championships, which begin Tuesday. She opens against Sara Errani.
