Tomorrow is the 35th anniversary (to the day!) of the release of the Olivia Newton-John film XANADU.

In honor of that, Livvy and daughter Chloe Lattanzi have mixed it up in the recording studio with UBER-dance remixer Dave Aude to re-invent Olivia’s #1 hit song “Magic” for today, now titled “You Have To Believe,” as a new dance single.

The music video will have it’s big world premiere at Share Nightclub in Las Vegas tomorrow night, where the video was shot with cameo appearances by several big-time Vegas tribute performers.

ONJ wanted to shoot the video in her temporary “hometown” where she has been selling out during her concert residency at The Flamingo Las Vegas, now in her second year.

The music video is set to be available on iTunes this coming Tuesday.

But for now, we get this sneak peak. I have to say – Olivia looks fantastic. #TrueDiva

Chloe Lattanzi still planning to marry fiance

Chloe Lattanzi has revealed that she is still planning on marrying her fiancé James Driskill.

The Australian singer, whose mother is Grease star Olivia Newton-John, was believed to have called the wedding off after discovering that Driskill was still married and living with his first wife, but has now insisted that she didn’t feel “deceived” by him.

Lattanzi told OK! magazine: “The engagement is so on. We have had to postpone [the wedding] until [his] divorce comes through. I love him and [the scandal] wasn’t enough to throw out a whole life together. [There’s] no trust lost at all, since I was not deceived. My love goes beyond words or explanation.”

Driskill added: “Chloe understood right off the bat that it was not deliberate and that she had no reason to doubt my love for her. I told Chloe that I still lived with my ex-girlfriend and that I was moving out soon. I didn’t tell her that we were married and that was a mistake. Eventually, I had to tell her.”

Lattanzi continued by saying she found it “horrible” to discover that a so-called friend of hers had leaked the story about Driskill’s wife to the media.

“Whoever did this is no friend of mine,” she said. “I was deeply hurt, because the most wonderful man in my life was portrayed inaccurately.”

Chloe Lattanzi’s new video creating a big stir around the world

Chloe Lattanzi, Olivia Newton-John’s daughter, recently released her first music video on the internet and is receiving a lot of attention for it’s graphic imagery.

Some are shocked by the very dark images of the video, while other’s find the strong artistic vision to be very powerful.

The Daily Mail in the UK said some groups had a problem with the video for glorifying the themes in order to get ‘attention’.”

Child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg told Sunrise this morning in Australia that he is calling on the Federal Minister for Mental Health to ban the music video.

However, the daughter of Olivia Newton-John says that her new music video, featuring suicide, drugs and self-harm, is all about artistic expression.

Chloe says, “The concept is actually quite dark, but not literal in meaning.”

While the video does have strong imagery, I personally support artists reaching for their own vision.  That’s how artists develop and grow, by finding their own “voice” as artists.
