Britney Spears: Gimme More Video



Who wants to see the new Britney Spears video for "Gimme More?" If you are the tens of people who are on the edge of your seat, you're in luck. This video is the first peace of good news that Britney has received since about 2001. Overall, people are liking it. I say that tricky lighting, quick camera shots, and close-ups of "ass shots" can really be the magic formula for any successful video.
Britney plays two roles in this video: Blond Britney and Dark Hair Pole Dancer Britney. If you thought one Britney was enough, now we're lucky enough to have 2. Too bad one of the extra Britney's couldn't spend a few extra minutes with her 2 kids, "What's His Face" and "The Other One." Britney pole dancing, however, is a real treat. I think it's important that she starts to push her "risky" and "trashy" side because I feel that we haven't really seen much of that before.
Overall I think Britney and her video provide a positive message for young girls everywhere. Now you too can be a "skanky-white-trash-booze-hound-pill-popping-pole-dancing-vagina-flashing-custody-losing-head-shaving-lip-syncing-live-performance-bombing-umbrella-hitting-car-crashing-mess" AND still have your new song hit #3 on the Billboard Charts and make millions. Good luck youth of America, good luck!

It could be better but.. yeah!! I guess this is what we'd expect from britney.. I don't complain lol

see, i believe that the whole video is almost her way of saying that the joke's on us.

the blonde britney is clearly her true self and the pole dancing britney is the media's perception of her. notice the blonde britney laughing at the pole dancing britney and at times even getting up and dancing--in a way, embracing the way the media views her.

maybe i'm just reading too much into it.

What was she thinking? Let's make a game of "How Many Things Can You Find Wrong With This Video"! Kinda like a trashy version of "Where's Waldo?" First of all...Could she have not found a better platinum wig? It looked like it came straight off a mannequin from Sears. Second...I know she can't spell liposuction but can she sure could use some...She should do it for the pain medication alone! Third...You KNOW that's a butt double, right? Fourth...Could she not have at least taken pole dancing lessons? PLEASE! She's gonna need something to fall back on anyway and that seems like a win/win! Fifth...how does someone have a hit song singing two words throughout the whole thing and then you add the moaning and heavy breathing which sounds like she pulled a hamstring running to the refrigerator and back during a commercial break? Number six? Anyone?

Boring...I think I could have done more on that pole. Where's the hanging upside down or sliding...she's got all the time in the world to practice I mean it's not like she has any kids to take care of.

And I'm so over the whole girls giggling at boys in music vidoes what are we 12, take some authority do shots w/ em!!!

I like her. The video is meh.... at best. But they all are. No video has been super-riveting to me. Maybe 'I'm a slave 4 u', but thats it. She is putting out what everyone expects. And she is not a role model. I agree with Stacys post, she's putting out what everyone's perception of her, why should she do anything different ? To comment on her lack of talent or whatever is just irrelevant, she hasn't ever gotten any better voice / talent - wise since she started, and she's still the most talked about person in 'celebrity media' right now.

I like her, and I think its unfair for everyone to sit back and watch her implode. She has serious issues.

Thanks for posting the video, sorry for being debbie downer.

What the hell is she laughing at? Her as a stripper? The guy? I dont get it. I do not know why she thinks this whole "stripper movement" is still cute. It's not. That was 2 years ago, find a new formula. If this video was classy, maybe people would not think she was just one big joke.

Marcy said...

Ok, I'm tired of people complaining that Britney's fat. Um.. she's not. Maybe she's not as skinny as she was pre-babies, or Nicole-Ritchie-levels, but compared to normal people she looks friggin awesome.

As far as her dancing, though... Britney, can't you do better? I've had lame nights at the club where I danced more enthusiastically than that. Are you really trying to pass off as a stripper there? B/c those were totally lame stripper dance moves.

And the video also kinda looked like a low-budget production.

Chris said...

Hmmm, where to begin. First I want to state that I loved the way she used to be. Her videos were usually awesome. This one, however, blew ass chunks. This was def filmed low budget and I dont know..She needs to get her act together. And people really, yeah she is a mess but you all are making fun of the fact that she lost her kids. Yeah, it is prop for the best right now, but there is no need to talk about that shit like that. Anyway, The video sucked, but after the VMA's I was kinda expecting it. Ugh, I wanna believe she can pull her act together and be better then ever, but the way things are looking I seriously think she may kill herself.

it's not her best but better than a lot of crap out there. i mean look at timberlake's "Lovestoned" video. It isn't good for a great song. He could have showed a mini movie but it's mainly just him and what you see on your computer's volume control. At least this video makes somewhat of an attempt. I think it's trying to convey how people expect to see her in public but they love the "Toxic" and "Slave for You" perception too.
