Thief - Ansel Elgort |

Decided this week I'm going to focus on reviewing male singers, purely because I feel like I'm flooding my blog with female artists, and I need to switch it up a bit. This song and video has been talked about a lot over the last week or so, so I thought I might as well review it on here. The song is amazing and the music video is pretty sexy too! Watch Ansel Elgort topless and kissing someone, looking toned throughout this music video for "Thief" all before he leaves her all alone because he believes he isn't good enough.

Ansel Elgort is mostly known for his acting roles, especially in the Divergent series, as well as The Fault In Our Stars and Paper Towns. He has subtly focused on a musical career with a few releases under his belt as well as remixes. However, this song acts as his debut music video, and it is as hot as hell and has gained phenomenal promotion in the last few days. No wonder his name is on everyone's lips. The song was written by Ansel Elgort, Kyle Trewartha, Tom Norris, and Christopher J Baran.

Directed by Warren Elgort, the music video sees Ansel Elgort relaxed throughout, he clearly has no problem showing off his body, to which we totally love seeing.

There is both a performance side and a narrative side. Some people have described the whole thing cringe-worthy, and you can see where they are coming from; the dancing is totally freestyle during the performance piece, suggesting that even though he can move, he really needs guidance and choreography. Otherwise, the performance is on point, and he shows off his body during that part which is completely fine with us.

The storyline sees Ansel Elgort get it on with a woman in what could be a hotel room. They undress, he does a few push-ups in his boxers, she just lies sultrily on the bed. They do an upside-down kiss, a slight ode to spiderman obviously. The story gets sexier and sexier until we see Ansel Elgort clothing himself and leaving her in the bed.

Overall, this totally relates to the song, it's full-on sexy and hot, there are no other words to describe this. I would've preferred to have seen a choreographed sequence rather than his freelance 'cringe-worthy' dancing, yet he exudes confidence so totally pulls it off, along with his clothes. This is totally the right step in his musical career.
