IU tries to escape from the “Celebrity” life in new MV

The K-pop idol has a new full-length album on the way.

IU has returned with a glamorous video for her new single, “Celebrity.”

In the captivating video, IU plays a famous starlet whose doppelgänger leads a life as a normal person. The K-pop star follows her lookalike through the subway and the two eventually come face to face in a small apartment. The clip ends on a cliffhanger, with IU running away from a group of reporters.

“Don’t forget among the cloudy dark / You’re a star painted with a left hand / Can’t you see how beautiful / A true uniqueness can be / You are my celebrity,” IU croons on the chorus.


“Celebrity” is the first taste of the singer’s upcoming fifth studio album, due out sometime later this year. It follows her hit 2020 single “Eight,” which featured and was co-produced by Suga from K-pop boyband BTS.
