Music Video Of The Day: I Belong To Me by Jessica Simpson (2006, dir by Matthew Rolston)


I went to the same high school as Jessica Simpson!

Of course, I didn’t go there at the same time that Jessica did.  Jessica was long gone by the time I started the 9th grade.  As well, I actually graduated while Jessica dropped out so she could become a super-rich celebrity instead.  That said, I did take a few classes that were taught by Jessica’s former teachers, who all agreed that Jessica was a sweet person.  To be honest, most of my classmates made a big deal about being kind of cynical about going to the same high school as Jessica Simpson.  You’re never more jaded than you are between the ages of 13 and 18.  Myself, I’ve always liked Jessica Simpson because we’re both from Texas and we both occasionally play dumb for the laughs.

Anyway, this song was written when Jessica was going through a very public divorce from Nick Lachey.  It’s an empowerment song that also happens to be really depressing, which is really the best type of song there is.  There’s something to be said for a good depressing song and a good depressing video.

Enjoy!
