There’s a different side of Didi Benami we have not fully seen yet– her acting abilities. The long awaited concept music video for Theory of a Deadman’s current single “Hurricane” from their fourth studio album ‘The Truth Is…’ shows us that artistic side of Didi.
The very creative video shows frontman Tyler Connolly losing his ‘Bad Girlfriend’ Amber ‘Hurricane’ Smith to fame and fortune when she wins a televised singing competition. Connolly gets left in the dust as Ms. Hurricane ditches him for partying and shopping as she steadily becomes a natural disaster. Look for an appearance by comedic actor Andy Dick in the clip.
When we had the chance to talk to Connolly about the types of songs on ‘The Truth Is …,’ he said, “For us it all comes down to balance. There’s I guess this perception about us being just I don’t know misogynistic to party band to dirty rock but for us we always have songs like ‘Bitch Came Back’ or ‘Lowlife’ but then we do have the songs like ‘Hurricane’ and ‘Easy to Love You’ and ‘Outta My Head’ that take on – not necessarily a lighter side — but maybe a different aspect.” via LoudWire
From Yahoo Music: ‘Idol’ Alum Didi Benami Plays Fallen Idol in Theory Of A Deadman Video by @LyndseyParker
Considering that Didi Benami, who placed 10th in Season 9 of “American Idol,” was portrayed as that season’s token emotional mess (she was often shown sobbing or breaking down), it’s amusing that hard rock band Theory Of A Deadman just cast her as an emotionally messy “fallen Idol” in their new music video, “Hurricane.” Didi does a fantastic job, and now it seems like she’s having the last laugh.
In the high-concept video, Didi plays Amber “Hurricane” Smith, the winner of a TV singing competition called “Overnight Sensation,” who goes right off the rails before the confetti from that fictional reality show’s finale has even been swept away. She overspends on a McMansion. She chugs Cristal. She treats her poor personal assistant like crap. She throws tantrums. She get plastered across the cover of every tabloid…and gets plastered in general. She hangs out with Andy Dick. She loses all her money. She basically packs a “Behind The Music’s” worth of hard living into four minutes. And she’s eerily convincing.
Does Didi Benami have an acting career ahead of her? That remains to be seen. But clearly Hurricane is the role that she was born to play.
