Are You a Cute Blond Lady? Now Is a Good Time to Be in a Music Video

Last week, a couple of so-called indie bands released music videos that featured quirky blonde actresses. Michelle Williams traveled to Niagara Falls Wild Nothing's "Paradise" and The Girl Next Door Elisha Cuthbert imagines herself in a movie in The Gaslight Anthem's video for "Here Comes My Man." Both of these actresses may be successful and well known now, but the music video has long served as a platform for relatively unknown folks to get recognition and launch their career (case in point: Courtney Cox).

Through tons of music video watching, I discovered a trend-- most of these music video actresses are blonde and range from A-listers to up-and-coming "it" girls. With that, if you have blonde hair and people say you're a good looking girl, it might be time for you to make an appearance in a music video.
