Do Somethin' single turns 18 today 🥳

Do Somethin' was released as the second single off her Greatest Hits: My Prerogative album. 

 

She had to convince her record label though, as they didn't want to release it as a single. The music video was ultimately shot in December 2004, and it leaked online in January. In a letter that she published on her official website on January 03, she wrote:

" I just shot a cute video for "Do Something" that I co-directed. After doing about 20 videos, it gets kind of boring playing the same role, so I chose to work with a young, hungry, director Bille Woodruff. He had no ego whatsoever and the whole process was just so much fun. Oh, his dog was just adorable too.

As much fun as I had, I have to say I was a little disappointed that I still had to convince my record label that making this video was the right thing to do at this time. But, in the end, I think everything came out great. We shot the entire video in a record breaking 5 hours. I even came up with all the choreography and styled the entire shoot myself using Juicy Couture clothing.

Co-directing this video was like an experimental project for me. I feel like being behind the camera is sometimes more satisfying than being in front of it. Working on this video was my first taste into behind the scenes work which I am excited about doing more of in the near future. When a woman directs, I think it just alters the entire feel of the movie, production or play in such a positive way. Speaking of, I've been working on writing and hopefully eventually directing a musical which makes fun of the whole Hollywood scene, which is appropriately titled "Hollywood". "

I do enjoy “Do Somethin” but I still think “I’ve Just Begun (Having My Fun)” blows it out of the water. Such a missed opportunity, there’s a reason they chose it for one of the best comedies of all time, “Bridesmaids”. And I’ll gladly die on that hill.

I liked that song. Is there any other video where she was co-director?
