BANKS Provokes Us With A Very Disturbing Music Video (NSFW)

After being m.i.a. for a while, BANKS is back with a very NSFW video (Nudity is not graphic, but lyrics and content are racy enough to not warrant watching this in the office) entitled "F*** With Myself."

The interesting aspect of the video is the obvious provocation in which Banks flips the use of the F word three times. The entire song is seemingly a triple entendre. One could interpret the first context of the use of the word to connotate BANKS being satisfied with her own personal sexuality outside of another partner. However, that seems to on the nose even though she most likely knows that will be on the listener's mind. 

The second connotation of the word would be in the new context. To "F*** with" as in to "Get along" with. She is letting us know that has reached a point in her life where she gets along fine without anyone else. This is the most clear message of the song, but there is a third meaning that seems to sneak in. 

The third context of "F*** with" would be to "aggravate" or "provoke." In the end, she sets fire to this prosthetic bust that seems to be somewhat modeled after her own likeness while she sings "So I F*** with myself more than anybody else." Is she tormenting herself. Does she drive herself crazy with her antics? The meaning of a work of art can often be in the eye of the beholder and it doesn't seem too far off to assume that maybe three interpretations might make for good company when watching this video.
