“I felt hot,” Sweeney recalled of the video shoot, for which she wore a bustier and studded chaps. “I picked my own outfit out of racks and racks of clothes. I felt so good in it.”

The Euphoria actress also revealed that the dance moves she performed in the video were unprompted, and that she felt honored to be part of The Rolling Stones’ videography.

“One of the questions I get is, ‘Are you a feminist?’ I find empowerment through embracing the body that I have. That’s sexy and strong, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. I’m in a Rolling Stones video. How cool and iconic is that? I felt so good. All the moves, everything I was doing was all freestyle. I mean, who else gets to roll around on the top of a convertible driving down Sunset Boulevard with police escorts? It’s the cool things in this career that I had no idea I’d get to do.”

The music video for “Angry,” the first single for Hackney Diamonds, was released on Sept. 6. The album arrived on Oct. 20 and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart dated Nov. 4.

After the visual for the single dropped, Damon Albarn was among those who shared thoughts on the Stones’ video. “I listened to their new song and watched this horrible music video showing them at different stages of their lives on billboards. And this young woman objectified,” the Blur and Gorillaz frontman told French magazine Les Inrockuptibles.
