*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?
