In this music video, Ashlee Simpson decides that she’s tired of her clingy boyfriend so she ruins her phone and goes out with her friends. This video is very, very, very 2005.
Among other things, this video also highlights the early attempts to market Ashlee as being an edgier version of her sister. In her videos, Jessica would have fun with her friends but, at that point in her career, she was still always destined to leave them for her man. Ashlee, on the other hand, was all about girl power. That said, though she throws away her phone, Ashlee doesn’t necessarily throw away her boyfriend. She knows that she can call him back whenever she feels like doing so.
As I said, it’s all very 2005.
