Despite the nuns and Orthodox clergy and other symbols of Orthodoxy it has nothing to do with religion. It's a pop song on the rather typical theme of a girl thinking about her past love. My wife kindly provide this info, after asking me to please turn this singer's voice down as she can't stand her.

I actually find it a bit offensive.

This beautiful young woman, is stood up....her man doesn't want her...so she waits...and pines over him...and then at the end in a huff she leaves the night club and with the words that he will never find another as good as her ....she storms off...and becomes a nun.

She's becoming a nun because this one man didn't want her?  Really?  What about Faith?  What about dedication to God?  That's not here.

...and the nuns...oh my gosh!  It's like she's going to prison or something.  The Mother Superior is like a strict and unfeeling guard at the prison...

The other nuns weep when she is getting her hair cut....as if she is losing something.

It seems she is being sent to the gulag, not to a monastery.   ...and if she is feeling that way, she shouldn't be a nun, in the first place.

Oy!

It's the pop singer Tatiana Bulanova, and it's just a pop song.  I remember her from almost 20 years ago when I still lived in Russia...

It is supposed to be a joyous ceremony.  As for the hair cutting, I think it is just a piece same as baptism etc.
