40 Fun Facts About Your Favorite Music Videos Back In The 2000’s That’ll Blow Your Mind

WAIT, Britney got hit with what? LOL.

16. “Damaged” – Danity Kane

The futuristic dance clip was shot in 24 hours on a chilly Los Angeles stage. The crew was worried about their equipment being D-A-M-A-G-E-D from the heat, so they put the A.C on full blast (see what I did there?)

17.”Work It” – Missy Elliot

Okay, so everyone remembers that crazy talented 10-year-old girl who busted a bunch of cool moves? Well, that was young Alyson Stoner. If you don’t know who she is, she’s best known for her role as Demi Lovato’s best friend in the Disney Movie “Camp Rock” or being in all 3 “Step Up” movies, or as one of the siblings on “Cheaper By The Dozen” – ya catch my drift.

The gibberish in the chorus of Missy Elliott’s “Work It” is actually the lyric “put your thing down, flip it, and reverse it” played backward.

18.”Lady Marmalade” – Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya & P!nk

The music video purposely portrayed all four singers dressed as prostitutes. YAHH – PROSTITUTES. I honestly thought they were just being hella sexy. PLOT TWIST.

19. “Big Pimpin” – Jay Z

Pimp C hated the beat of the song so f*ckin much, that he wasn’t even willing to fly over for the music video. “BIG HATIN'”

20.”Stronger” – Kanye West

The video was directly inspired by the 1988 Japanese animated film Akira. Kanye West came up with the original idea for the promo, which was shot in Japan over nine days and features an appearance by the model the “Me & You” star and Diddy’s current ‘shawty,’ Cassie.
