Shenae Grimes Sings & Directs 'Myself and I' Video!

Shenae Grimes Sings & Directs 'Myself and I' Video!

Shenae Grimes is showing she’s more than just a pretty face – she can sing and direct, too!

The 20-year-old actress, who sings and directs the below video, told Paper, “I had gotten the itch a couple months back to delve into directing and the world of production and was inspired by a situation in my own life to write a simple story about a boy and a girl.”

“The simplicity of the story paired with the choice to use a song instead of dialogue, allowed me the freedom to get creative in my means of storytelling,” Shenae added. “I wanted a film that looked beautiful and made people feel something without telling them how they should feel.”

FYI: The video stars her 90210 co-star Ryan Eggold!

    Eek. Not much of a singer, is she? Some people just can’t carry a tune – just accept it!

  • Mia

    Cute video, love Ryan Eggold. The song is meh.

  • Jules

    Love seeing Ryan Eggold he’s a total hottie.Too bad I dislike Shenae..

  • gillian

    if the contast off-key-ness is intentional, then this vid is perfect…. but is it? it’s her 1st piece so i’ll give her a break… if this were done by anybody else , it really freakin sucked..

  • MKhay

    I love her but her voice is crap, and i was bored with the video.

  • k2

    If you guys actually took the time to read the post you would realize that the whole point was that she wanted to direct/produce a video. It’s not like she is releasing an album, she doesn’t even really talk about the song in the interview.

  • G23

    Regardless – she still sang. And she sucked.

  • Xnialis

    That was a little unfortunate.

  • sammi

    wow that video and song are nopt creative at all! My 15 year old niece can do better!

  • Eden

    Stick to your day job.

  • Helen

    Not a good voice!

  • Alaia

    Her singing in tune is not really relevant to the video.

  • http://Bree Bree

    Colbie Caillat should sing this! Her voice would be perfect!!

  • Cheryl

    I think it’s good directed and I love the end of the video. Not a great singing voice but I don’t think this video was about that. She did a really good job for her first video.

  • Wes

    I loved it! Shenae is one of the most down to earth actresses out right now. Great first vid Grimes :)

  • Gwin

    I really liked it! Her voice is interesting. And the story is relate-able. …first and foremost however it is wonderful how she is doing the things she loves and wants to do! Inspirational even! Go Shenae!

  • jenn

    i fell asleep

  • Macchiato

    äh NO she can NOT sing

  • Quin

    Wow, why does eveyone feel like they have to act and sing, Not many people can do both well and i’m sorry but she sounds a hot as mess. She should stick with working on getting better as an actress!

  • Alison

    she is not a very good singer, but the direction in the video is good.

  • Isabela R.

    well, i liked it!

  • Luke

    I love it! I love ’90210′ but ‘Gossip Girl’ is better!

  • jamoo

    mmh, the video was good, maybe directing is what she should stick to, I mean the singing was kind of………….um,………..still looking for the words, but I still like her though

  • JD

    she is dreadful – horrible style, can’t sing and i think has an enormous ego for absolutely no reason. Please write her off the show she is so annoying.

  • julian

    The direction of this video was great and had lots of meaning
    other people just don’t look at the art of directing and expect something grand

    it’s simple and beautiful

  • zzzz

    I really liked the video & could relate to it. Not all of life”s situations are complicated-most are simple, like this. The song isn’t bad, actually perfect with the vid, although Shenae’s singing is not great. Overall, good job.

  • brittany

    loveeeed it! she is amazing, and especially loved the part in that park, that was filmed at FiDM in la where i go!! yeah representing the fashion students :)

  • Luna

    Ugh her voice sucks. WHY does every actress think she should get into singing?!?!?!

  • abi

    loved it!!! That song has been in my head for days and days.

  • Great Singer

    Let’s be honest people, if she was just some average chick and took this to a record label they would laugh. I can’t stand how these little highschool show girls (Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohen, Paris Hilton..ect.) get famous and then decide they wanna be a singer to boot. There are so many struggling artists out there and they deserve a chance, not someone with a voice that sounds like a cat is being stepped on. She’s a beautiful girl, a good actress, but she CANNOT sing.

  • lolooo

    I think that’s a pretty simple song. That’s not perfect but that can touch some people…
    Anyway, I’m really bored by the nastiness of some people.
    It’s not because you’re behind a computer that you can say everything you want. You’re so hopeless…
    Love Shenae ♥ Love Annie ♥

  • Crystal

    I like her but that was cringe worthy. She should have gotten someone else to sing because singing is not one of her talents.

    @Great Singer: A record label probably would laugh at her if she took this to them despite her being an actress.Celebs like Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton can get record deals without having no talent because they are famous. The same can’t be said about Shenae who barely gets media attention not even from the teen magazines. It’s unlikely that many people who haven’t watched 90210 or Degrassi know who she is.

    lolooo, If your’e bored by the nastiness of some people why even comment? I’m sure you have made comments on message boards about celebs that would be considered nasty, unless sof course you are perfect. No one who post son boards can truthfully say that they have never made a negative comment about a celeb not even the self rightious hypocrites who acts like they are above it.
