"Jaded" would become Aerosmith's final chart hit in most territories. It reached number one on both the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and the UK Rock Chart, while reaching the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in Canada and Scotland. On the UK Singles Chart, the song reached number 13 and became the band's eighth top-twenty single on that chart; it currently remains their last UK top-forty hit. "Jaded" additionally reached the top 20 in Italy, the Netherlands and Spain. In 2002, it was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. [4]

Lyrical interpretation and song structure

The song's lyrics are about a girl who is "jaded", and how the relationship the narrator has with the girl is sometimes "complicated", but asserts that "I'm the one that jaded you."[ original research? ]

Cover artwork

The single's artwork was somewhat controversial, featuring a naked woman holding an apple on the cover. The model in the artwork is Nicole West.[ citation needed ]

Music video

The video for "Jaded" features Aerosmith performing in the lobby of the Los Angeles Theater, and clips of a "jaded" girl (actress Mila Kunis). The song tells a story of a girl who has lost the ability to feel due to losing touch with reality.

The Los Angeles Theater is a movie palace in downtown Los Angeles and is extravagantly designed in the French Rococo style. The video also features the ballroom/lounge, the landing on the way to the ballroom, auditorium, and the mezzanine hallway. The hallway shot uses either a mirror, or special effects, to multiply the doors and make the hallway seem endless.

There are two versions of the video, much of the footage is the same, though used in slightly different places, and some shots have alternate angles. In the first version, the opening shot features a quick zoom on the stage, Steven Tyler blows into the camera, and he is not shown when the music starts in the forest interlude. In the second version, the opening shot features a slow zoom on the stage, a horse statue blows into the camera, and Tyler is shown when the music starts in the forest interlude.

The video premiered on MTV on February 13, 2001 and was directed by Francis Lawrence. The video was awarded Best Hard Rock Clip of the Year at the Billboard Music Video Awards, and Video of the Year at the Boston Music Awards.
