Britney Spears’ long-awaited ‘Hold It Against Me’ video is premiering at this very instant! The visual for the record-setting single was directed by Jonas Akerlund. Check out the full video below:
As expected, this video an array tricks – camera angles, a gang of dancers, flashing lights and bright colours – in an attempt disguise the fact that Spears is nothing more than a shadow of the performer she was in her youth. However, the production gimmicks actually worked against her as she was the only flaw in the entire clip.
The days of Spears’ high-energy performances and electrifying stage shows have long gone. In an era where other entertainers (Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Ciara etc) have raised the bar with their brilliant showings, Spears’ lackluster antics are far from impressive.
O well at least we’ll always have YouTube to help us remember the good old days. She’s not stronger than yesterday.
