My all-time TRL-era pick for #1 girl power video would've been Destiny's Child's "Survivor." (I am the biggest closet Destiny's Child fan ever, and with that, I just revealed myself... but for real, give me a little "Jumpin' Jumpin'" and watch me lose it).
Despite the fact that Kelly Rowland's hair was having a wack attack, that song's got legs, and I love how they were like "SOS! We're a hot chick army, and we'll effing SWIM our way to safety!" And of course, that "You know I'm not gonna dis you on the Internet" line is a classic. Take THAT, Perez!
Even though the "Survivor" video won a 2001 VMA for Best R&B Video, it only came in at #8 on yesterday's TRL countdown, while Kelly Clarkson's eff-you anthem came in at 9, Shakira's shakily annoying "Objection (Tango)" got the runner-up spot, and relative newcomer in TRL land Miley Cyrus' "7 Things" took the top honors, beating out Britney's "Stronger" and Christina Aguilera's "Fighter" at numbers 7 and 6 respectively, even though My Cy was still in nappies when Destiny's Child was opening for Dru Hill. Whatevskies. I'm not slightly bitter.
