The music video, helmed by "Honey
" director Paul Hunter, was shot in Los Angeles and follows Carey tearfully recalling her romance with a former flame (model Christian Monzon). The highlight for Carey was re-enacting a famous scene
from her idol Marilyn Monroe's last movie, Something's Got To Give
, which never got finished due to the star's untimely death in 1962. "It's an homage to her, because I've never seen anyone re-create it," Carey told MTV News. "So many people have emulated so many of Marilyn's classic moments, but it's just that I'm a big fan of hers, and I thought it was really pretty at night with the pool. No one could ever be as fabulous as Marilyn was, but it's in honor and homage to her."
