As the song approaches its chorus, Cyrus and the girls start dancing and jumping.Cyrus continues singing as she holds a white rose and a girl deletes a text message from her boyfriend.For a moment, she is replaced by a different girl holding a small stuffed monkey.
They decided to include some of these items as props in the music video.
For example, the necklace Cyrus wears in the video was her ex-boyfriend's medical identification tag, which he received because of his diabetes mellitus.
while Bill Lamb of said the "winning performance" demonstrated that "Miley Cyrus does not intend to simply be a TV-generated phenomenon in the pop music world.
She is a compelling pop artist in her own right." Cyrus said that neither she nor Ratner wanted the video to be "all about [her]" because the song's message was universal; "almost every girl in America could say they hate their ex or current boyfriend," claimed Cyrus.
These performances were recorded and sold exclusively by the United Kingdom i Tunes Store as a live extended play titled i Tunes Live from London.
"7 Things" was also included in the set list of Cyrus' first world tour, the Wonder World Tour; Cyrus performed the song in a black leather ensemble paired with a silver rosary while overhead video screens projected a conflagration. Thompsen of The Oregonian said Cyrus' performance of "7 Things" the September 14 concert in Portland, Oregon at the Rose Garden Arena "showed what a powerhouse she can be using her voice and influence to get her message out".It was released on June 17, 2008 by Hollywood Records as the lead single from the first studio album released by Cyrus with no ties to her character Hannah Montana from the Disney Channel comedy series of the same name.Also registered as "Seven Things I Hate About You", Cyrus developed the song during the Best of Both Worlds Tour while feeling numerous emotions for an ex-boyfriend, mainly anger.The video was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award at both the 20 award shows.Cyrus promoted the song through several venues including her world tours, the Wonder World Tour and the Gypsy Heart Tour. And it was, like, such a great time for me to have a minute for myself, which I never get.The review continued that it was mildly angry, comparing Cyrus to "a watered-down version of Avril Lavigne's kid sister, and Lindsay Lohan's pseudo-rebellious character in Freaky Friday — minus the eyeliner". a 15-year-old suffering her first serious heartbreak, basically." Cyrus began promotion for "7 Things" in Europe in fall 2008, performing the track on the United Kingdom channel GMTV, the French television show Le Grand Journal, and the British singing competition The X Factor among other venues.
