Story Behind 'Because Of You'

Kelly Clarkson rewrites her family script in her music video, “Because Of You”, her fourth single from the album, Breakaway. The American Idol winner from 2002 won the 2006 MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video with the story of a woman threatened by a marriage breakup. The 3:50 minute music video begins with a shot of a family home. Inside Clarkson’s character and her husband are arguing in the kitchen. Clarkson yells and shoves her husband away. As her husband follows her down the corridor the camera focuses on the family photograph, and then changes focus to reveal a black and white framed photograph of a young girl and her father. The husband grabs the photograph and runs after his wife, but just as he threatens to smash the frame he’s frozen.

Clarkson walks back down the corridor to discover herself as young girl. Together they walk to the kitchen to witness a father-daughter encounter. The father is too busy on a phone call to recognise his daughter’s work. As Clarkson sings her chorus she’s alone in a dark corridor of mirrors. The video moves now to the mother’s pattern of heartache and disappointment in the face of her husband’s neglect and betrayal. On the painful day of final split the young girl follows her father out of the house, carrying his bag for him. Finally Clarkson’s character returns to the scene where her husband still stands frozen. She reaches up to defuse her husband’s anger and invites her daughter into a family embrace.


‘Because of You’ was co-written by Kelly Clarkson, Ben Moody and David Hodges. Moody and Hodges, ex-members of Evanescence, co-produced the song. The original concept was developed by Clarkson as a sixteen year old dealing with the pain of her own family struggles. With her parents permission Clarkson based the the music video concept on actual events from her childhood.
The music video was directed by Vadim Perelman, a director represented by Tate USA, known for his feature film, House of Sand and Fog (2003). Producer was Rhonda Vernet. The video debuted in October 2005.
