La Roux’s leading lady, Elly Jackson, recently sat down with MTV to talk about her “In For The Kill” collaborator, Kanye West. In the interview, Elly praises Kanye for not being afraid to work with some of the hottest artists out there on his new record. “What I really liked was the aspect of his idea of using all the best people you have at your fingertips, that people don’t seem to do that … and I think that was kind of his point with this record,” Elly explained to MTV News.

As synth–pop sensation La Roux’s second single “In For The Kill” heads to radio, the stunning video to accompany the track will premiere worldwide today via MySpace. Directed by LEGS (Goldfrapp’s “Alive”), the video was shot at the historic and legendary Hotel Chelsea in NYC made famous by the eclectic and artistic musicians who have made it their home in the past, these include Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Dylan Thomas and Sid Vicious, amongst others. The video is a dark and lusciously rich view into the hotel’s seedy underbelly through the eyes of La Roux’s Elly Jackson who finds herself acting the part of night porter. You can also catch an exclusive interview with Elly and behind the scenes footage from the “In For The Kill” video set on Thursday at 5pm ET/PT on MTV’s new daily show, “The Seven”. [Read more…]
