I don't know about you guys, but I'm completely thrilled with this Hilary Duff music comeback. The former Lizzie McGuire star and Disney Channel darling hit the music scene after a nearly seven year hiatus with several singles, including "Chasing The Sun," "All About You," and, her most recent tune, "Sparks," (which Duff just released a music video for that is all about her own adventures with Tinder). All of her new songs are catchy, and their respective music videos are fun, which means one thing: Duff is officially back in the game. But, while that may be the case, it doesn't mean I'm ready to dump all of Duff's older music for her new stuff. For instance: I recently revisited Hilary Duff's music video for her 2003 single "Why Not," and it was absolutely everything I didn't know I needed in life.
There are plenty of truly epic moments in this music video, and I'm glad that Duff's comeback reminded me to look back on the early building blocks of her career. This video, which is now nearly 12 years old (feel old yet?) will certainly take you back — and here are the moments that do it:
