No Doubt – Looking Hot (R3hab Remix)

Looking Hot” is the second single released by American rock band No Doubt from their album Push and Shove. It was written by Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal and Tom Dumont and was produced by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.

The “cowboys and Indians” themed music video for the song was directed by Melina Matsoukas, and premiered on November 2, 2012. It was removed by the band the next day amid controversy for its reportedly stereotypical depiction of Native Americans.

No Doubt released a statement apologizing “As a multi-racial band, our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures. Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history. Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people. This is of great concern to us and we are removing the video immediately. The music that inspired us when we started the band, and the community of friends, family, and fans that surrounds us was built upon respect, unity and inclusiveness. We sincerely apologize to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video. Being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are.”

The American Indian Studies Center of the University of California, Los Angeles – whom No Doubt claimed to have consulted prior to filming the video – released an open letter to No Doubt which noted “perceptions that American Indians are mere historical relics, frozen in time as stereotypically savage, primitive, uniquely-spiritualized and – in the case of Native women – hyper-sexualized objects to be tamed” and said the video “is replete with such highly offensive and destructive images of Native peoples in general and Native women specifically” and that is was “rife with imagery that glorifies aggression against Indian people, and, most disturbingly, denigrates and objectifies Native women through scenes of sexualized violence” but commended the band’s decision to remove the video.

Push and Shove is the sixth studio album by American rock band No Doubt. It was released on September 21, 2012 by Interscope Records. The album serves as a comeback album for the band as their last album, Rock Steady, was released over ten years previous. A deluxe edition of Push and Shove features acoustic versions and remixes of several tracks and “Stand and Deliver”, a song No Doubt had covered in 2009.

The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 having sold 115,000 copies during its first week. “Settle Down”, the first single from the album, was released in July 2012 and received mild success, debuting and peaking at number thirty-four on the Billboard Hot 100. The album’s title track features producers Major Lazer and Jamaican reggae artist Busy Signal, and was released as a promotional single the following month. “Looking Hot” was released as the second single from the album.
