Demi Lovato‘s wedding day takes a turn for the worse in the official music video for her latest single “Tell Me You Love Me,” co-starring Grey’s Anatomy hottie Jesse Williams!
The first two minutes of the cinematic Mark Pellington-directed video are dedicated to the couple’s engagement as well as the insecurities and jealousies that threaten to tear them apart before they even make it to the alter. The actual song “Tell Me You Love Me” finally comes in at the 2:30 mark during the extravagant wedding sequence where, after a few suspenseful moments, the groom (Jesse) tells his bride (Demi) he’s not ready and leaves her at the alter to the shock of their family and friends. It’s runaway groom!
It’s all very moody and overly dramatic, but the take away is quite successful. Demi did the damn thing, period.
“This song is one of my favorites which is why I named my album after it,” Demi said in a statement about the song and video. “I not only love singing it but I think the underlying meaning is important for people to know. At the end of the day you have everything you need standing right in front of you. And that’s yourself. Shooting this video was really fun too! We had a full on wedding and my best friends were even my bridesmaids and groomsmen. The locations were absolutely beautiful. It was perfect and I’m so excited to show everyone!”
