Singer/Songwriter Emily Reid Uses Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt Relationship As Inspiration For “Jennifer Aniston”
The early 2000s relationship between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt–and its subsequent end–serves as the inspiration for a new song from Nashville singer/songwriter Emily Reid.
The former Friends star and University of Missouri Sigma Chi brother were the Hollywood It couple of the early 2000s and divorced in 2005. Aniston is now married to Justin Theroux while Pitt is recently divorced from Angelina Jolie.
The song, titled “Jennifer Aniston,” is an inspirational song for those getting over a relationship that didn’t quite work out. Or the catchy tune can really be used as an inspiration for anyone needing some, well, inspiration.
“As bad as you’re hurting, there’s always a person
who’s got it much worse than you.
Jennifer Aniston got over Brad Pitt so
you can get over that loser you’re with.
It won’t be easy to do, but you can do it ’cause
Jennifer Aniston got over Brad Pitt.”
Reid recently performed “Jennifer Aniston” during one of the weekly Song Suffragettes performances at The Listening Room Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee.
Watch Emily Reid perform the song below and read more after the video.

A review on iTunes compares Reid to Dolly Parton.
“If classic Dolly Parton had a baby with Ingrid Michaelson, that child would be named Emily Reid.”
