If it’s really been seven years then I’m really getting old!

After taking the longest break ever from the music industry, Hilary Duff is back with a new song and music video called “Chasing the Sun.”

Seven years brings us to a overworked and unimpressed Hilary Duff as she lugs over to her cubicle at work. Her hair is up in a bun, rimmed-nerd glasses are on, and she wears a cute black and white polka dot blouse.

Seems like the corporate world isn’t for our little Lizzie McGuire babe though, because she longs to be out at the beach for the day “chasing the sun.”

The song, written by Colbie Caillat, has a very old-school chilled vibe with heavy acoustics and light percussion.

“Love the life I live, and I will live the life I love, open up my eyes and I will take whatever comes,” she sings in the bridge as her hair flies around her face on the beach.

I liked Matthew Rolston’s video a lot more than I liked the song itself. The concept was very well thought out from beginning to end.

My favorite parts were the “office coffee cocktail” and the “conference splish-splash.” Too funnny!

Maybe it’s because I’m still enamored with her more upbeat and mature 2007 album Dignity, but I don’t think all the hype was really worth it.

I hope she blends her 2007 sound with tracks like this one on her upcoming album.

Live vicariously this summer through Hilary Duff in the video below!

Bradley Cooper Works at Burger King for a Weekend

Turns out the hottie can flip it!

On Sunday, Bradley Cooper was spotted working a shift at Burger  King in Leicester Square, London. Why, you ask? To train for his upcoming role as a chef in the film, Adam Jones.

“Bradley was training alongside genuine Burger King staff,” a source told The Sun. “The aim was to learn the art of the flip, which he nailed fairly quickly. There was no real fanfare from him. You’d never know he was a big star by the way he spoke to people. He spent Sunday night learning the skills while the restaurant was open to the public and then filmed for most of the day on Monday.”

Those were some lucky little British Burger King customers!

Adam Jones, directed by John Wells, will also star 50 Shades of Grey male lead Jamie Dornan, Uma Thurman, Sienna Miller and Emma Thompson.

According to The Wrap, the film is about a big shot chef who returns to London in search of a third Michelin star after giving up his career for a few years.

Filming is set to be completed by the end of September.

I’m just mad that he wasn’t training for this role in NYC. Hmph.
