Us Exclusive: Nick’s Revenge Video
Nick Lachey is taking career cues from Justin Timberlake. The fellow ex boy-bander responded to his breakup with Britney Spears in his video for the song “Cry Me a River.” Now, sources say, Lachey, 32, is dramatizing the dissolution of his marriage to Jessica Simpson in the video for his new single, “What’s Left of Me.”
This current issue of Us Weekly reports:
“The video is obviously about him and Jessica,” a close source tells Us. In the video, with MTV VJ Vanessa Minnillo standing in for Simpson, Lachey sings in a house quite similar to the Calabasas, California, home they shared during the three seasons of Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica. Lachey watches as the objects of their life together gradually disappear around him. In the end, even Minnillo has vanished into the shadows. “The song is all about changes,” Minnillo, 25, host of Total Request Live, tells Us. “Nick is so strong. He’s really putting himself out there as a musician.”
The video, which began shooting yesterday, is expect to start airing in late April.
