Our unabashed love for Femme Fetale has been well-documented, so we’re sad to report that Britney Spears‘s latest video is truly awful. Brit, why must you tease us so?
The video is for “I Wanna Go”, which happens to be a delightfully dancey pop tune, but the video just doesn’t work. It involves cyborgs and Bad Britney and Guillermo from Weeds and it’s really dumb. Don’t even get us started on the milk. But clothes! She wears them! The costume choices are actually kind of clever. A cut-up tee with a Mickey Mouse ears-wearing skull on it? Eff you, Mickey Mouse Club! A modified punky schoolgirl uniform? Eff you, “Baby One More Time”! It’s a lot subtler than it sounds, we promise.
Oh, also, spikes! She wore that kickass spiky studded Burberry leather jacket in her last video, and this time she opts for spiky studded shoes. We spied both sky-high black studded Louboutins and what appear to be studded Doc Martens.
Check out all the looks (and the video!) below. Totally wonderful or really, really wack?
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
