Hot Shot: Britney On Set of ‘Hold It Against Me’ Video

Published: Monday 24th Jan 2011 by Sam

Check out this shot from the set of Britney Spears‘ hotly anticipated ‘Hold It Against Me’ video. Directed Jonas Akerland, the clip was filmed over two days this weekend and has many -including Spears herself- deeming it her best work yet.

Indeed, writing on Twitter after shooting wrapped, Spears said:

Such an incredible experience. I think this will be one of the best videos I have ever done”

Echoing such sentiments was ‘Toxic’ and ‘Slave for You’ choreographer Brian Friedman, who reunited with the 29 year old for this project. According to Fridman, Spears “danced her behind off”during filming.

Here’s hoping there’s substnciation for all the hype and not merely smoke and mirrors as has been the case with Ms. Spears too often over the last few years (see: ‘Circus era’)

Tidbit: It appears the usually reliable Breathe Heavy were a little over-excited in branding an earlier posted image as being from the set. The shot above however, we can confirm, is the real deal.

Your thoughts?

    Love it!!!

  2. FUTURESTARdelux January 24, 2011

    LOL at Scam & Bent trying to get out of saying that other pic was official, Breathe heavy may have started it but you didn’t verify it and were “a little too quick” to throw it up here hoping to steal their shine no doubt lol
    I also love how you think using “indeed” makes you sound like a real journalist lol…

    Anyway this video is looking more and more hot by the secong, i’m hoping her dancing is great and tbh i think it will be. In the Blackout/Circus era’s her team knew her limitations and never overhyped her so fro Bryan who’s reputation could be on the line if he lies i think it’s gonna be amazing. This looks like the kind of vid i wanted “Radar” to have during the Blackout era before it was weirdly put on Circus and given a Candies ad for a vid lol :/

    Get ready because THE Princess is comming and Gaga can gtfo, i mean be real after all the hype Gaga’s vids get do any of them actually stand up against “Toxic”, “Slave 4 U” etc? NO… lol

  10. little kimberly DAMNIT January 24, 2011

    Do you guys proofread? You guys will never be credible , or get invited to a major event , or taken seriously as long as you continue to post your insignificant ass opinions alongside facts . Nobody cares what u think. And what the hell is “Here’s hoping there’s substnciation” ? This is horrible. #fail #fail #fail

  11. tumay January 24, 2011

    She looks superb!!!

  12. dboy January 24, 2011

    @futurestardelux

    i can almost understand ur bitterness when the subject is some artiste u dont like but even when it’s ur fav, u spew more negativity than positivity

    ever heard of “keep it cute or keep it mute”?

  13. CHECKMATE January 24, 2011

    Yaaawn, typical fake ass s*** and special effects to make Spears look half ass interesting. Of course she says it’s her best vid yet… What do you expect her to say – it’s her worst?? GTFO, lol. Be prepared to expect lip syncing and lip dancing coupled with quick edit cuts and special effects to hide her usual white trailer trash candid pics. Can we say Circus era with more high tech fotoshopping? Next.

  14. MISHKA January 24, 2011

    Britney, a red outfit and a futuristic background….Seems “deja vu” to me but I really can’t remember where I saw this… hmmm…

  15. Royalkev January 24, 2011

    @Checkmate , yes… this looks kind of cheesy to me. The special effects will either enhance the video if it’s done properly or reveal that it’s only a distraction used to help us not notice what Britney can’t deliver.
    @ Mishka, you’re thinking of ” Oops I did it again”. I hate that video!
    Still, Britney does look pretty good. She’s even trying to be a little sensual in the face, which leads me to believe that she’s just more aware of hesrself and on top of her game.

    I’m not impressed by the tweet, but we’ll be the judge of everything once the video is completed.
    Good Luck Brit!

    reminds me of Nicole scherzinger’s poison!

  17. ~BeySoBreezy~ January 24, 2011

    Does it really matter? I mean Britney can release a video with her sitting on the toilet taking a nice long s***, and her stans will claim she slayed everyone female in the industry 😆 …ya’ll know I aiant lying 🙂

    @Aryo you have no room saying its looks like poison when poison was (a cheaper) toxic part 3 since womanizer was part 2

  20. EDWAKKA January 24, 2011

    If she gets no UK number 1’s from this album and the album isnt number 1 then it would seem she’s had it over here other than selling out tours. We’ll see. Hoping for great dancing and generally a great vid…..

  21. Tha Phoenix January 24, 2011

    This really looks good. I canNOT wait for the Princess’ vid to debut.

    I already smell the hatred wafting through the net.

  22. TJ January 24, 2011

    It’s not Jonas Aucklerland – it’s Jonas Akerlund (the same guy who did Madonna’s “Ray of Light”).

  23. GangsterA January 24, 2011

    ^^ lmao sam can’t spell Jonas Åkerlund fix that s*** and don’t forget the A with Å

  24. Beystanbish January 24, 2011

    Death at y’all putting Sam on blast. And lmfao at ‘here’s hoping’. That s*** always pisses me off when he says it.

  25. Anthony The Great January 24, 2011

    @BEYSTANBISH

    Yeah, Sam always uses “here’s hoping”, “yours truly”, and “Nevertheless”.

    Anyways, I can never understand how someone can say the video is going to slay by looking at one bad quality photo. Like really?

  26. NOBLACKPERSONWANTSTOLOOKAFRICAN January 24, 2011

    I WORRY FOR BLACK PEOPLE THAT ARE EXCITED WITH THIS WHOLE BRITNEY PROJECT, IT SAYS ALOT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR SELF IMAGE- AND THATS NOT VERY MUCH. SMH

    THE SONG IS WHACK, AND BRITNEY IS WHACK, PERIOD.
    ITS GONNA TAKE MORE THEN SOME BUNDLED MICROPHONES AND A LACE WIG FOR ME TO BE CHECKIN FOR THIS BRITNEY SH!T….

    BRITNEY AND HER CAREER ARE DONE! YOU HEAR ME? DONE!

    SHE LOOKS OLD AND HOMELY IN THESE PICS, VERY MOTHERLY… LETS JUST SAY YOU CAN TELL SHE HAS TWO KIDS HIDING SOMEWHERE…!

    ITS FUNNY HOW PEOPLE KINDA FORGET ABOUT HER KIDS AND EXPECT HER TO ACT LIKE A H**.. WHEN THAT IS NOT OKAY! HER FANS MAKE ME SICK!

    … AND THE WHOLE SONG IS ANNOYIN, IT SOUNDS ALL OVER THE PLACE. IT AINT BEEN OUT FOR A MONTH AND ITS ALREADY GOT ON MY DAMN NERVES, THE MELODY IS SOO TACKY AND DATED LIKE IT BELONGS IN ’02 OR SOMETHING…

    BRITNEY IS LAME AND SO ARE YOU IF YOU SUPPORT HER!

  27. Anthony The Great January 24, 2011

    @NOBLACKPERSONWANTSTOLOOKAFRICAN

    I’m not a Britney fan, but just because you support artist of different races doesn’t mean you are self hating. Music is UNIVERSAL.

  28. TJ January 24, 2011

    @GANGSTERA

    It’s now been “corrected” to Jonas Akerland (with an A instead of a U). it’s ÅKERLUND!

  29. Nichole January 24, 2011

    Yeeesssssss! Can’t wait!

    The original Princess of Pop has returned!

    Godney in 2011!

  30. Nichole January 24, 2011

    I also agree with BeyStanBish. Sam is so annoying with his “Here’s hoping” crap.

    Geez. Get over the Circus era already, and have some damn faith in the girl.

  35. GangsterA January 24, 2011

    LMAO @Tj sam you still #Fail

  36. lola January 26, 2011

    I’m sure this video is going to be wack. I haven’t seen a great video from Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce, Kesha, Katy Perry, Usher, Justin Beiber ect so why would Britney be any different since she’s just a trendy artist like the people mentioned above? She needs to sit her old ass down. Isn’t she like 30 now? She has two kids and those should be her main priority, not this music career. She already tricked millions of people into buying her s*** so I don’t see why she wants to come back. It’s definitely not because she has talent. And hate it when these artists and music directors or producers say this is so and sos best work yet! LOL. It always fails to delivery.

  37. irene46 January 27, 2011

    want to talk lame unmemorable videos? i don’t remember much about britney’s ‘piece of me’ video other than it was a ‘piece of crap’ ! slicing and dicing did nothing to save it.

    poker face, paparazzi, disco stick, and bad romance shine as big as any of britney’s videos. and that includes ‘slave 4 u’ (which was nothing at all special) and toxic.

  38. Javon February 5, 2011

    I love Briney Spears. She was the first artist to mix urban and techno and then Rihanna copied and then after that Lady Gaga copied and people thought She was the original. Doesn’t matter, Britney owns 2011 just like she owned
    the decade.
