Britney Spears – ‘Circus’ Video

Published: Wednesday 3rd Dec 2008 by Sam

*Updated* Finished Video Edit*

The hotly anticipated video for Britney Spears’ new single ‘Circus’ hit the net today. Getting straight to the point, the big budget clip definitely provides a level of spectacle and ‘wow’ (See: Lions scene) which is a good look for the undeniable ‘Britney’s Back’ slant that is being put on her chart return.

However, it’s hard to overlook the fact that this slickly produced clip doesn’t provide the answer most still want to know (especially in lieu of those so-so performances she’s been giving as of late): Does Britney Still Have ‘It’? Spears seems to fall into the background during the vid’s big dance scene – which itself is barely watchable after being spliced up so much.

Put simply, it feels like a case of just too much going on. Perhaps this is to cover up the fact that well…maybe..her best days are (far) behind her? Just a thought…

That said, like most, I’m rooting for her. Here’s hoping she finds her mojo again – as this is a step in the right direction.

What do you think of the video?

    I LOVES IT, my fav song, great video, GO BRITNEY!!

    I actually think this video is similiar to her recent performances…it’s just ok, very lackluster! While Britney has achieved her goal of looking like the “old” Britney, she just doesn’t have it the performance area anymore! She just seems very stiff, as if this is her first time doing this. All the theatrics and costumes are def. meant to camoflauge her lack of performance. If she wants to make a REAL comeback, she’s gonna have to come A LOT harder than this!

    Expected more. But atleast she was to par with the video and more dancing in Womanizer.. Im satisfied.
    Ciara was at her Birthday Party and did an interview seeing as other post Ciara was brought up so many times. Shows that fans really start unnecessary drama!
    If You Seek Amy/Circus are my new fave tracks from the album.

    Wow. S***. That floored me, and I don’t even like her. Great song, too. She back.

    I mean the video went with the song well. I think she did a good job for what it’s worth. Nothing extraordinary, nothing too simple either. Go Britney.

Final version or not! S*** we ain’t had a video like this in a min. “When I Crack that Whip” Everybody gonna trip, she’s damn right!!!! The whole thing from the dancers to the set to the costumes to the choreography everything was on point. B****** try not to hate so hard… we already know a million of you are gonna some how bring beyonce it to this blah blah blah beyonce is hot but she ain’t never and never will rock with a cast people like this.

    Back up off Britney. she had two kids and so many problems… all you saying she is whack are the reasons why she whack…. let her pick herself back up and get back into the swing, its not that she cant dance, she has no stage confidence and im not suprised…. accept the fact she looks better than she ever has, has just realised the best album of her career and what i would call the best album of the year, has release the hottest video she has done, and piece by piece will perform the way she used to…. no matter what she does people find things to crticise…

    not liking it much

    i’m sure all the teenagers will love it especially in a stuck-up country like UK

    I don’t like it at all..too boring..

  24. Anonymous December 4, 2008

    I’m glad she is doing better on a personal level.

    But on the talent tip she is side by side with Rihanna, with her, she can move more. We have had enough of lip syncing with Rihanna now she doing the same thing and is getting a praise for it!

    I love watching Beyonce work her stuff LIVE!!!

    Go Brit! Love that song and the video was fantastic. If only her live performances were that good. I’m a fan. I bought Blackout and just got Circus so I’ll give her time. Glad to see she is on the right track.

    sorry the Beyonce fan must be burnt…. For one princess RiRi has the most #1's for our decade. And having two singles in the top 5 has already been done. Ask T.I. how it feels to have both the # 1&2 slot taking on the billboard charts? Big props to Taylor Swift 600,000 units in a week that's a bad ass little girl.

    DELUSIONAL is such a strong word… F*** you !!! Beyonce can’t come up with her own Idea’s to save her life. That b**** done took Kylie Minogue’s whole stage set, recycled Dances from the DC tour for her award shows, ain’t give neyo credit for s***, got her ass sued by desiree, singing songs that were already made by other indie artist, got Jlo’s dress from 10 years ago for her new video, and ain’t give them 3 chicks no credit until put on blast about the single ladies video… we can go on for days so f*** you b**** your delusional. and lets not even talk about how she puts dangerously in love out after the DC album only to once again make her own group members look stupid as f*** cause guess who wasn’t singing s***????? The only b**** in the game that had some innovation died on Aug 25th 2001. Britney is an icon and no one cares if she lip sync her ass straight to the top. No matter what you cant take away what she has done. Talentless my ass she is who she is for a reason. So open your f****** eyes…And why is rihanna always getting the heat too??? that b**** has not left the top of the charts since her album came out!!! I guess I don’t got my eyes open enough to see that too. You haters can go to f***** hell… Give credit where credit is do.

    P.s and For the Record (beyonce ain’t had a good album since her 1st one) Diva my ass should have just called it a milli part 2!!!!!
    Now go hate on me Stupid B****!!

    Nice video, but this is NOT the final version of the video. The FINAL OFFICIAL version of the video will be shown this Friday on Entertainment Tonight. 🙂

    omg bey baby girl what is this effect you have on these people….how the hell did her name come up on a post about f***** britney spears,i swear im about to go insane….she must be doing something right!!!

    the video was good i liked it and i aint a britney fan but she is well on her way to being back…but i must say that after seeing “for the record” im scared for her,just because she is in control doesnt make her sane….i honestly feel like if she doesnt get some excitement in her life she is going to check out….she is sooo unhappy with herself,here we all are thinking she got it together when the case is that she is sooo under raps that shes bored,almost brainless…imma pray for brit

  35. soufian_y December 4, 2008

    I f’ing loved it!! She showed more confidence and the dancing was tight and faster than the live ones .. it was a great overall theatrical show… absolutely loved it, go brit !
