It has been six years since Jenny Lewis' previous solo album, Acid Tongue, but she's been busy. In the interim, she dropped the collaborative I'm Having Fun Now under Jenny & Jonny, and she also did film work, scoring and writing songs for the indie flicks "Very Good Girls" and "Song One." And so, she gets set to launch her new album Voyager later this month, the former actress has called in a few Hollywood favors.

Kristen Stewart, Brie Larson and Anne Hathaway (who stars in "Song One") all play back up in the music video for "Just One The Guys," the first single from the record. The trio switch it up from all-white clad band for Lewis, to becoming the titular dudes, all wearing tracksuits and fake moustaches. It's a fun face on a bit of a serious song about the expectations placed on women as they get older, but sometimes you gotta put sugar in the medicine to make it go down. Voyager drops on July 29th. Watch below.

    @???she would get involved whatever the song well maybe its time she thought more about what she is doing

    Kristen is thoughtless and inconsiderate in a lot of her actions -- just look at how she behaved toward Liberty Ross. She seems to act on impulse and gives little thought to how it hurts others.

    Her participation in this video is just an example of how she will do anything for publicity. She's a huge faker, saying how "real" and "honest" she is, and how she hates attention, and then doing something like this. She seems to think she can have it both ways.

    I guess she learned nothing from her cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders. Instead of doing some charity work, she chooses to dabble in music videos. So lame.

    the more I think about kristen in this video the more it annoys me, Iwant to be one of the guys but something inside wont let me, she dresses very tom boyish, swears a lot, her film about having an inappropriate relationship with her boss in festivals befor two years after having an inappropriate relationship with her boss director, everything she does and says seems to be very calculated and maniplative,it worries me that a lot of her fans dont question anything and just go along with it
    I hope she is asked about what she thinks these words mean, doubt she will be or she wil concentrate on it being about older women, or just say how much fun it was
    I dont know if she was approached for this or organised by kristens PR which is her job to help her have a good public image, but atleast it is good PR for her showing her having fun, though I cant help thinking shes having a laugh at other people,in interviews she doesnt come over very well, recently said in an interview for indiewire she doesnt like actors who are captivating " some of them F ing love it they would be here now captivating you, that goes against my grain, " makes no sense to me, if she was meaning it at Rob even more snidey as he has said he is deliberatly silly in interviews to stop media, commentators making serious statements out of what he says, as soon as he was for The Rover sites went back to linking everything he said to being all about kristen which im sure she would be aware of
    I dont think I ll change my mind on her and maybe its time to gove up trying

  • annoyed | July 20, 2014 9:11 AM

    @ Mary I only came back to this post to see if there was a response,
    At the end of my post I said maybe its time to stop trying, but you’ve responded with nasty comments, on most sites people who like her bully people into not making comments, not fair everyone is allowed an opinion
    I found him easier to like, you said Im too invested in her, I explained in posts I read posts on both because I think its unfair how they are treated differently,
    And to try and understand where she is coming from because she is very confusing, but as a mum not a women who has mummy issues with Rob, I am worried about how much she is defended and protected, young Twi fans impressionable girls blindly accept anything she does as ok, shes done 6 ? films involving drugs, she said she takes drugs then said she wouldn’t do well on drugs,constantly contradicting herself, if she had bad experiences with drugs I would have a great deal of respect for her if she used her fame and her experience to warn young teens not to get involved, I was concerned if her films promote the idea of drugs but no one would answer me, I worry about this attitude she is promoting of do what you like don’t care about anyone else
    I have also said to someone else it would be easier to let go of the affair if she didn’t do things like this its two years this month of the pictures and she chose to be in a video saying I just want to be one of the guys, two years from the pictures of choosing to meet with someone she didn’t need to have contact with, married, her boss director year later she makes a film,less than two years she has a film in festivals about an impropriate relationship with her boss, bit difficult to stop thinking about it when she keeps bringing attention to it, your comment , I don’t know if you mean lot of men or the director, I have also explained I don’t think it is a good attitude to tell young people well if some people do things that are wrong its ok to join in and be the same, as for Rupert , Kristen had worse response as I have already explained because of her attitude saying it was a momentry indiscretion, dragging Rob into it she hasn’t named him before, has alsways made very negative comments about him, but happy to use him for support, five minutes later shes back to actualy I don’t care, she seems to like playing manipulative games with people which encourages young people to think this is ok
    Rob has just done a film The Rover collapse of society humanity results,if everyone keeps having a Ill do what I want, self obsessed attitude, everyone messes up, but to encourage this attitude is not going to work out well for anyone , maybe your not a mum, and can just focus on yourself, but I am and the world were changing into scares me , if people don’t start taking responsibility then The Rover will be reality for everyone, why would you want that?

  • ??? | July 19, 2014 9:23 AM

    "I want to be one of the guys, but something inside of me....." and all the other lyrics belong to Jenny Lewis. It is Jenny's song. It has nothing to do with Kristen, Brie or Anne, nothing. They probably were thrilled to be asked to be a part of the video. And might have joined, regardless of the song. Everything Kristen says or does is not directed at Rob. Is it so difficult for you to understand, that Kristen must have thought that have nothing to do with him. Kristen every thoughts and actions are not a secret message directed at Rob. You seem way to focused on this young woman. A young woman who seems to be happy and active, living her life. Rob also seems to be happy and active, living his life. Please stop focusing on Kristen, since it seems to make you unhappy and confused

  • Mary | July 18, 2014 6:15 PM

    Please you seem too invested in this actress and her life to believable not everything a person does or says has to do with her ex and this is the perfect example of it you kept bringing the past here and her affair when there are man in industry who have done the same thing and got away with it without the hate this girl has
    or maybe you are a stupid robert pattinson fan who has mommy issues with him

  • Adam | July 17, 2014 8:57 PMReply

    The song in this video is pedestrian and the people involved in it demonstrate that they will do anything for publicity. Today Kristen Stewart was photographed driving around in a black Mini Cooper, like the one she used for her public affair with the married Rupert Sanders.

    And today is the 2 year anniversary of those 50 photos being published in US Weekly. I cannot believe the gall, but I don't know why I should be surprised. Maybe she's studied Kim Kardashian and is going to exploit her sleazy sex romp now.

    Stewart has said she stands by her mistakes and "is comfortable" with them. She doesn't give a crap about anyone else, just as long as she gets what she wants. Who cares who she destroys in the process? I can't believe people choose to work with her.

  • Think Again | July 21, 2014 3:18 AM

    @Donna, no, not everyone who's ever worked with Kristen Stewart has liked her or had good things to say about her. Assaysas talked about how she doesn't like to rehearse. Some people would have a problem with that. Seems like she doesn't want to put in the work required for a good performance. And some people have told the truth about working with Stewart, most recently, Juliette Binoche:

    “When the camera was on Kristen, sometimes I dared to push her. I would go and go and go. Kristen has an amazing potential, but she needs to open up, she needs to get in more. So when you see that, you want to help, you want to go for it.”

    She has "potential," but she doesn't go the distance, she has to be prodded, pushed to give a performance. She's not perfect, she's not the greatest actress ever, despite some good reviews. Critics have been wrong before, and they can be wined and dined and massaged by KStew's PR hack, Ruth Bernstein. In fact, Ben Lyons recently tweeted about Ruth taking him out for an expensive lunch. So thanks, Miss Binoche for your honesty.

  • Donna | July 19, 2014 9:10 PM

    Adam are you a guy? Because you sure don't write like one. Also, how do you know what Kristen Stewart is like, do you know her or are you just venting your hate because you're not like her? So far, everyone who has worked with her, and there's a lot of A Listers, have loved working with her, lots and lots of positive interviews from them. So exactly what is your problem? Another thing, so what if Kristen likes mini coopers, I do too, but I'm not going back two years to check out one indiscretion that I don't believe actually happened. So get over it, move on, find someone, other than Rob Pattinson, that you can actually have a relationship with.

  • ??? | July 19, 2014 9:25 AM

    Adam you sure don't sound like a man.!!

  • Mary | July 18, 2014 6:16 PM

    please you are not a guy , because guy wouldn´t be this lame really you are a robert pattinson fan please grow up he is a grown man

    Of course all the ladies are cute, and this video just show acting comes natural to Kristen Stewart, and I would love to get hold of the video.

  • Soooo much funny, ha ha ha333333 | July 16, 2014 6:30 AMReply

    This is a funny video and very good. Kristen so good at it, love to see it.
    Nice see the girls so much fun for all of us.

  • Elaine | July 16, 2014 10:21 PM

    This is a cute video. I love seeing the girls having fun and touching on a serious issue at the same time. You know they play pretty good too.

  • Ashame | July 16, 2014 5:46 AMReply

    So of all the feminist arguments they go with "I should be aloud to be as sleazy as men without harsh judgment" wow okay, great. That is more important than other rights women have been fighting for

  • still confused | July 16, 2014 4:29 AMReply

    some people like to discuss and understand people, an idea not just go along with everything, no one has been able to give me any of the words to the song that I couldn’t understand, no one whos getting annoyed is able to give an explanation to the song,
    I don’t like Rob being treated so differently seems to be analysed and receives very negative articles when others don’t, but Kristen must realise people are going to question her motives when she chooses to do things, an article on indiewire that Kristen wasn’t re hired for SWATH because of sexism is ridiculous, I watched a trailer for COSM and I was abruptly told I had got the wrong idea and they don’t get involved, other content made me suspicious why she chose the film, agreed and filming less than a year after her indiscretion, in festivals less than two years,
    I look at a video titled “one of the guys” Kristen in a moustache I cant help but think, I am allowed to think and have an opinion were not in a dictatorship yet, that shes saying she wants to be treated as a guy , how things were dealt with the indiscretion, lot of comments said she was treated worse, but she made an apology that made things worse choosing to meet up with someone you don’t need to have contact with is not a momentry indiscretion,and naming Rob when she hadn’t before, then after twi promotion shes back to I ll do what I want I don’t care , just because some men think they can do whatever they want, women having the same attitude is not equality we should be aiming for
    As a lot of you say kristens not trying to say anything , she often says a lot without explaining what she means, Im just saying that is the impression I had from her involvement in this video Surely Kristen thinks something when she chooses to do things, I cant help wondering if Rupert will watch this and think it’s a dig at him?
    I re read the article, I don’t think this is a very good , positive song if its just “Im getting older, cant have kids but older men are allowed to have fun,I can understand it being difficult for some women , I love my kids but I m glad all that is over now,video very negative and depressing and giving in to that idea a fun song showing women having fun would have been better ,comes across feeling sorry for herself and giving up, it would also be nice if people had some imagination and didn’t just think sex sleeping around is all that matters, and the only thing that makes you worth something, if I still have completely wrong idea then offer an other opinion other than means nothing get a life

  • ? | July 16, 2014 5:24 PM

    Jenny Lewis is 38.

  • alfie | July 16, 2014 3:17 PM

    my interpretation of this song is the sadness that a woman may feel when her biological clock runs out.
    Jenny Lewis may feeling it because of her age - 47.
    notice in the video after she sings ," ♫ a lady without a baby." they cut to
    anne's male incarnation weeping.
    it's a very sad song from that perspective.

    lol. what is it with you people? did you not get called on enough in class? there are things flying over your heads, can't you hear them? look up and get a clue. this is a heartfelt song about one singer's personal feelings and it's just a funny, sarcastic video to go with it, all contrapuntal-like. good lord, lighten up. and read some books why don'tcha?

    Surprised as the confusion over women in drag. People have less humor now than in Shakespearean times. Ever read or see Twelfth Night. Gender switching is a common device in opera too.

  • Traveler | July 15, 2014 2:44 PMReply

    Looks like Jenny Lewis assembled two thirds of the biggest turn offs for her back up band. Is this supposed to make her look better in comparison? Strange. Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway have been at the top of the Most Unlikable Actresses list for the past few years. Was Gwenyth Paltrow busy? Oh, I forgot, she can actually sing.

    Lewis has been kicking around for years but never made it big, but if she thinks this will help, she's wrong. KStew starred in music video a couple of years ago and the song never went anywhere, either. The music video she "co-directed" was a flop, too. She's more of a negative than a positive at this point. Still livin' on that Twilight name recognition.

    Great idea to get famous young women to help convey the message of equal rights between genders, horrible idea to make the case that Women should be aloud to be as sleazy as men without being shamed cause that's really going to progress society.

  • mm | July 15, 2014 11:54 AMReply

    @Confused, I think you are somewhat confused. This is Jenny Lewis's song and video. Kristen, Anne and Brie are just a part of Jenny video. It is Jenny's message and concept. Kristen, Anne and Brie are not saying anything.... Jenny is. The video has nothing to do with Kristen or Rob. Nor does it have anything to do with Anne or Brie. Even Jenny might not be sending some secret message. Sometimes a song is a song and a silly video is just a silly video. As for Kristen and Rob photo shoots.... Rob and Kristen do not pick the clothes, the theme/concept.... they show up and get their pictures taken.

  • still confused | July 15, 2014 6:04 PM

    I know I’m confused that’s why I put my name as confused and asked if someone could explain it,politely, no one seems to understand it anymore than I do, sometimes a song is just silly , yes but it means something , I didn’t think it was kristens concept but she is involved with it because she likes whatever it is, I know they don’t walk into a photoshoot and deceide exactly what it will be but they will have some say and wouldn’t do something against what they think is ok, odd coincidence that she did a split picture shoot straight after he did and it was very narcistic, what I saw in this video was women being allowed to be the same as men , constantly reading articles and comments, you cant be cross at a women because men do …etc: if something is not ok it should be discouraged not, if men are bleeps women should be bleeps (im not suggesting all men /women are bleeps)

  • Emperor Zerg Rush | July 15, 2014 12:11 PM

    No arguments toward most of what you wrote, but certainly you must realize that stars do have some control over what happens during photoshoots and it isn't wholly a school picture day ordeal you describe.

  • confused | July 15, 2014 11:39 AMReply

    Maybe I’m just too old to get this, if someone could “politely” explain it me I would appreciate it , I don’t get women with moustaches, look act like men to be seen as equal? A woman being equally as bad as a guy isn’t a good thing, All I could hear is “same as the guys” “...difference is I don’t have a baby” I tried to search for the lyrics but couldn’t find any
    I wrote a comment recently that I read hers and Robs articles I think it’s unfair they are treated differently, Rob worse far more negative, that I also read hers to try and understand her as she confuses the heck out of me , things like this don’t help, unless for her “one of the guys “ means if men can mess around , cheat so can women, as I said women being as bad as men is not a good thing or progression but deterioration just because things happen doesn't mean it's a good thing to promote it as ok
    I couldn’t help but think of her photo shoot pictures Rob had just done a set to reflect cronenburgs films he was in the pictures looking at himself (character)with a woman so on, she then did a photo shoot with split pictures just of herself looking at herself which was very odd and narcissistic dressed like a man in a suit looking at herself in erotic clothes, I wasn’t sure what she was trying to say with it ,this is even more confusing

  • MM | July 17, 2014 7:46 AM

    @confused I think you are over thinking things. This is Jenny Lewis' song and video. It is her concept and perhaps developed with the help of others, but I don't if Kristen had anything to do with it. I find it interesting the all three actresses invited to help, with the video, are not you typical Hollywood actresses. And the three were probably asked to participate for that very reason. However I think you are giving Kristen involvement to much weight. She perhaps admires Jenny and the concept and decided to join in. You say you are perhaps too old to understand the video, so perhaps you should understand Jenny's message. She doe not want to be a man. She says it more than once in the video. She even says she can't be one of the guys, even if she wanted to be. I think the song/video should appeal to older women. It is about the choices young women make, not understanding the consequences. The song seems to be about a woman reaching the end of her child bearing years, she looks at herself and see a lady with out a baby. Neither Kristen, Anne or Brie are at that stage. However they could have participated because of their chosen careers. At some point Hollywood is finished with female actors. And perhaps they will be in Jenny's position..... thinking working through their childbearing years. I am a Kristen fan, but the world does not revolve around her. And all her actions don't revolve around Robert. They both seem to have moved on professionally and personally. They will do similar things professionally, but that does not mean there is a deliberate message behind it.

    Kristen is amazing!! She has always said se felt like one of the guys and that's just her. A laid back, no drama kind of person. Ann Hathaway is so cute in this too. Its a catchy song and Kristen been funny and having a laugh is just great to see!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

  • Luna | July 15, 2014 9:51 AMReply

    Confused by how this video is about young women being surpressed by society? If anything society today pushes females to be feminine, I understand the concept of the actors wanting to be treated equal as men but why do they convey the message that you have to look like and act likr man to be treated like one in this video. Women can be fenimine "With a baby" and strong

  • Pau | July 15, 2014 1:53 PM

    I believe they are being ironic. It's supposed to be a play on it. They want to be just one of the guys but they obviously cant be. Not completely.

    If you want to belittle women get a group of young Hollywood stars to wear moustaches and sing about how desperately they want to "be on of the guys" but can't because they're "just a lady"
