Hilary Duff never got caught up in the drama of "Laguna Beach." In fact, despite singing the MTV show's theme song, she never really watched it.
"I was not a huge [fan]," she said on the "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" aftershow on Thursday, Jan. 26. "I just … I didn't watch."
The "Lizzie McGuire" alum explained that her schedule didn't jibe with the airing of the show, which ran from 2004-2006.
"In a moment in time when you could not record TV shows, I was on tour," she said. "So, I missed a huge chunk of, like, big things that people talk about that I didn't get to experience."
Still, she loves that her song "Come Clean" will always be linked to the popular aughts reality show.
"My song was, like, the theme song, and I loved that," she said. "I did love that because, I mean, I [basically] lived at MTV for a while."
Not only did Hilary lend her voice to "Laguna Beach," she also sang the theme song for MTV's "My Super Sweet 16," which ran for 10 seasons from 2005 to 2017.
However, the "How I Met Your Father" star didn't exactly fatten her pockets from "Come Clean" and "Sweet Sixteen."
"I definitely didn't get super rich by them using it as the theme, and I am not going to pretend to know what went on in the background for them to use it," Hilary said of MTV securing the rights to the track. "But they used it."
She added, "They love me over there. I don't know how much money I made from it. I don't think a lot. But maybe Disney [the owner of Hollywood Records] did."
