The reality webisode series ‘Being… Ashlee Simpson’ has made its debut at Pepsi Smash on Yahoo! Music. The series documents Ashlee’s life during the process of making her new album, ‘Bittersweet World’. The first webisode gives an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into her video shoot for ‘Outta My Head (Ay Ya Ya).’
“You guys are on the set of my video ‘Out of My Head’,” Ashlee said introducing the clip. “We’re about to go in for the first shot. As you can see, my mom and my hairstylist Kenna are already goofing off. They both have wigs on, so it should be a fun day.”
Talking about the video’s location, Ashlee said, “Today we are in Acton, California. It’s a little bit in the middle of nowhere. It’s an hour away from home. I don’t know how much is around here. It’s kind of nice to be away from everything. It’s super cold here and it’s windy and so we’ve got little heaters going on.”
On working with director Allen Ferguson on the music video, Ashlee said, “Allen and I worked on the concept together. It was a cool thing, we went back and forth discussing the concept, and he’d always come back with something so genius. I would just tell him a little piece like I’m into Dali or whatever it may be and he’d always come back with something great.”
“Video shoots are a lot of fun because you get to do action and all sorts of crazy things you never thought you would do,” Ashlee said about her involvement in all aspects of the video. “There’s a lot of running in this video. Running from people and running from myself. I like to do all my own stunts.”
