Eurovision star Netta Barzilai releases new song ‘Ricki Lake’

The Israeli pop singer who shot to fame with her hit 'Toy' can be seen bathing in a tub filled with doughnuts in the music video

Israeli Eurovision winner Netta Barzilai has dropped her latest single “Ricki Lake” – an irreverent take-down of American hyper-consumerism.

Netta can be seen bathing in a tub filled with doughnuts and dancing in a mayonnaise-jar laden supermarket aisle in the confident and playful music video released on Friday.

The pop singer, whose hit song “Toy” earned her the coveted Eurovision 2018 trophy, said the inspiration for her latest single came from the Ricki Lake Show, a 1990s daytime programme she watched as a teen.

“I was fascinated by all the colourful characters she featured in her show. It was a glimpse into the ultimate America at its best and worst,” Netta said about the talk show hosted by the US actor Ricki Lake.

“Ricki Lake for me was always how the misfit became America’s sweetheart, and this song and video are my cheesy, messy and greasy homage to her,” she added.
