From there, the Gio Coppola-directed clip takes us to Carly working, writing and wandering the city alone. After a brief moment where her headphones get stolen during a park bench nap, we see Carly taking matters into her own hands and making her way into a local neon-lit lounge. She changes her outfit before hitting the stage, swaying awkwardly by the microphone as the audience members stare unamused, all while shots of the glam-ed up version of herself flash in-between. The video ends with shots of her in the emptier room, but Carly, like Cinderella, walks out out of the lounge with her glamazon shoes still on to prove that maybe it wasn’t fairy tale after all. Yes Carly, you clever little minx!
