Kelly Clarkson 'Behind These Hazel Eyes' Video Info

The fairy tale is over for Kelly Clarkson, at least in
the video for the third single off Breakaway, "Behind
These Hazel Eyes." If snipping a few dress straps in
the "Since U Been Gone" clip seemed a radical display
for that breakup power ballad, just hang on — there's
some really ominous imagery going down in this one.

The single almost didn't make the album at all,
according to Clarkson. "It had different lyrics in the
beginning," she said. "I ended up calling Luke [Lukasz
Gottwald], the writer, and we did a totally different
song to it. It's now my favorite song on the record.
Crappy relationships [make for] a good song."

The video was shot in Toronto in April with director
Joseph Kahn (Britney Spears' "Toxic," Backstreet Boys'
"Incomplete," U2's "Elevation"), with a concept
conceived by Clarkson. It begins with her outside a
cathedral wearing everyday clothing, then cuts to her
performing in a shredded wedding dress. Following in
the tradition of great wedding-dress wearers before
her — think Sade, Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey — she
runs through a Tim Burton-esque forest filled with
leaves.

Her memories begin to flash back as she performs, and
the wind whips her hair around. Like a deteriorating
old movie, the two periods of time collide, and we see
a wedding party gathering at a cathedral. When the
doors open, however, Clarkson looks down the aisle and
sees her man marrying someone else. After she
witnesses their vows sealed with a kiss, she escapes
into the forest, branches snagging her dress until she
falls into a muddy puddle. The dirt splashes on her
face, and her eyes remain unmoving for a moment.
Recovering her composure, she rejoins her band in the
forest and rocks out.

By the end of the video she eliminates any chance of
becoming a modern-day Miss Havisham. The wedding scene
replays, but instead of saying "I do," she chucks the
ring away, rips up the flowers and decorations and
knocks down several groomsmen who try to stop her from
fleeing the church.

Clarkson is well aware that this is her most intense
video yet. "The whole thing is a metaphor about a
broken fairy tale," she said. "You think everything is
going well, and then reality kicks your butt. It's
kind of a sad video, but it's going to be my best one.
It's real, and that's why people like me."

Clarkson didn't know that acting out emotional wounds
for the camera would result in some real ones. She
left the shoot with bruises all over her body and
still has a sizable green-and-yellow splotch on her
left bicep. She says that even with iron supplements,
she still bruises easily. "Look at that," she said,
gesturing toward the mark. "It was so much worse — you
have no idea."

She'll have to heal on the road, especially now that
it looks like she'll be touring for a while longer. Of
course, touring has its own perils: At New York's
Hammerstein Ballroom on Wednesday night, Clarkson
danced barefoot onto a small piece of glass, dodged
gifts being thrown on the stage and later battled the
elastic waistband on her long hippie skirt. She
thrilled the crowd with songs from Breakaway and
Thankful and spoke about the possibilities for another
emotional ride with her song "Because of You." That
track will likely be her choice for the LP's next
single.

And Kelly is my avatar, although it is blurry, couldn't get a clear one to be in the size they need.

I should edit posts but that doesn't increase post totals. lol

B : it's not the best, but it's the best I could make it with the original format I had.
Hope it's ok/good enough.

Do go if you get a chance. She is apparently trying to add more dates so be on the lookout for that. I am a member of her fanclub and they give away 15-30 Meet and Greet passes for nearly every concert. Unfortunately my name wasn't drawn for Houston. Maybe next time.

I like Kelly’s for two singles a lot! The new one will grow on me, I’m sure. I think this CD will follow in the footsteps of Pink’s “Mizunderstood” (sp?) and be a radio staple for a couple of years. I’m happy for Kelly.

I also like Kelly - in fact I am addicted to "BTHE" and "Because of you." I love those songs right now. Unfortunately we did not get tickets to her concert

Kelly rocks ! I am sure this video will be her best yet. She even said that she thinks it's her best yet. I can't wait to see it.

Riding the 3AM RollerCoaster


My name is Danny
And it's uncanny
How when I sing about my Hingis
I start to groove like Mingus

If she could only go
To my singles rodeo
She'd find me hitting forehands to and fro
She'd say "Radek, man, you've got to go!"

I'm the only boy in Texas
Who pulls up in a Lexus
And when I make a play
They call me Breakaway.
