New Mandy Moore Video Kicks Butt (and the Song Is Awesome, Too)

I find it easy to root for Mandy Moore. Despite her bubble gum music roots, it's been clear for some time that she's serious about finding herself as an artist. Her 2007 album, Wild Hope, was a good effort but lacked a standout single and also struck me as a little too adult contemporary for such a young, vibrant artist.

Well, if this first single from her new album is any indication, it sounds like Ms. Moore has found a way to add some sass and spunk to her pop sensibilities. The video for her song "I Could Break Your Heart Any Day of the Week" is super cool and has Moore leaning on a wall, watching a group of martial artists kicking and bashing stuff. She looks great and even gets in on some of the butt-kicking action herself near the end.

And the song. The song! It's so adorable and catchy. I'm really impressed and can't wait to hear more from her. The album, Amanda Leigh, is due out May 26. To watch the video for yourself,

Somehow I doubt she could hurt Chuck Liddell. :)

Ooh- I am not impressed by this song. I thought about getting the album when it comes out, but maybe not.

Seriously? A 10 year old could have written this song and done the video. Absolutely no imagination. I don't find it catchy. Mandy doesn't kick butt, she takes a cheap shot. Bubblegum pop at its most boring.

I like Mandy as an actress...but as a singer? Not so much.

lame. i heard the new album was going to be edgy, and this is definitely not edgy. as much as she claims she's not, the girl is bubble gum. i can't imagine her and ryan adams together.

yikes... all her proclaiming that her old music is crap... what does she think this is? not good at all.

I agree with the first comment. I think the song is boring but I like the video. And I liked songs off Wild Hope a lot better!

I've always had a soft spot for mandy, I don't know why I just like her. I think even as a teen I respected her because she didn't go the crazy route Britney did or even Christina to a lesser extent (DiRRRty anyone?). But this was like watching paint dry ... and honestly even candy was better IMO or In My Pocket. Whoever said the problem with her is her music is cheesy... completely nailed it.

This song is completely unoriginal and incredibly boring. She seems to be taking a step backwards, instead of becoming a "real artist" like she's always talking about. Ugh.

oh mandy... i always TRY to like her. i even downloaded wild hope when it debuted, and i wish she stuck to that style of music. is she going country now? i always get the sense that she's trying so hard. it doesn't work for me. this song is so unoriginal and the video bores me to death.

Yeah, it's not a creative song and the video is strange

The lyrics are kind of Ryan Adams, but the delivery just seems uninspired. I adore Mandy and am rooting for her, but this seemed a little too synthesized and flat.The video didn't do anything for me either. It just didn't feel right.

boring song and even more boring video.

While I'm a Mandy fan, this song is way to repetitive and I don't like it.

I really loved Wild Hope. This song sucks. She keeps saying the same thing over and over and the video is just her saying it.

Is it just me who thinks she is wretched at lip synching?
