Watch the new music video right here, and keep reading for an interview with Brooklynne Webb and the track and how it came to be:
Sweety High: How excited are you to get to finally get this music out in the world?
Brooklynne Webb: I'm so excited. It's been my dream since I was a kid! I've been planning this song as a big idea for the past year and a half and I'm so happy to see it finally come to life.
SH: Can you tell us a little bit about the music video? How did you decide on one inspired by films like Mean Girls and Legally Blonde? How does that tie into the themes of the song?
BW: To me, "My Crown" definitely has the same vibes as a classic 2000s teen girl comedy movie. Those movies inspired me growing up and are my favorites to this day. From the second I started working on the song, I could already picture the music vid—and all the pink glitter that would be all around!
In terms of specific odes to those movies, the song and video are definitely inspired by the closing scene in Mean Girls where Cady Heron puts on the prom queen crown, but then breaks it into pieces. The outfits I wear are all pink, and the video and song come out on a Wednesday, paying homage to "On Wednesdays we wear pink!" My first outfit in the video is very Mean Girls-inspired as well.
SH: Do you have a favorite memory from the filming of the video?
BW: It is maybe not my favorite memory, but the one that stood out to me the most was the slime poured on me in the final prom scene. We only had one take to do it, and having this corn syrup-y, cold mess pouring down made my hair so sticky! That was bad enough, but then it went into my eyes and it hurt so badly. I remember screaming so loud, not only for the video, but because that's how I actually felt.
To top it all off, after we shot the scene, I went to shower off but the showers on set didn't work so I was stuck with the slime all over me! I even had to make an outfit entirely out of trash bags to go home in so I didn't make a mess of my manager's car.
SH: What's your favorite lyric from the song? Why?
BW: "POV: you're trying really hard to get me canceled" is definitely the line that stands out to me most because people online love to tear people down out of jealousy and get them "canceled." I felt it was funny to touch upon that in a very obvious way!
SH: Is there anything else we should know about "My Crown"?
BW: Stay tuned to my TikTok and YouTube over the coming week or so for more details about the making of the song and the video. You do not want to miss it!
