The video sees Lilo being photographed (hardly a rare occurence for her), intercut with scenes of famous Hollywood locales like the Roosevelt Hotel and Chateau Marmont (some of Lilo's favorite haunts). The whole thing has a slightly scuzzy, fame-hungry feel to it, matched by the morose track.

Is music video director a good fit for Franco? Let us know in the comments!
