Britney Spears’ “Work Bitch” video: better than she’s been in a long time?

Above is the new music video for Britney Spears’ new single “Work Bitch”. This is the supposed “dance anthem” that will blow away Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, I guess. I covered it when the full track came out – go here to review. My assumption was that they would make a solid dance video for the single. But we got this mess instead. Shall we analyze? Let’s do it.

First 30 seconds: Britney in the desert, a Lamborghini driving around aimlessly, Britney sitting at a mirror… WTF? And the lack of dancing is off-putting. It’s like all Britney knows how to do these days is just put her arms out and sway.

0:37: Okay, her body looks pretty great.

0:45: Oh, she’s actually dancing now, not just posing.

1:00: Notice all the really fast edits, though? That’s because she’s not keeping up with the backup dancers.

1:10: Her weave is looking especially good in this video. I mean, I can still tell it’s a weave, but at least it’s not matted Barbie hair.

1:30: Now she’s inside, thank God. I was worried the whole video was going to be Britney dancing in the desert.

1:40: I don’t get the whip/riding crop stuff. It’s like it has no association to the song and the whip isn’t important to the “story” of the video.

2:15: Her body really does look great. This is the best she’s looked in a long time.

2: 25: Holy crap, are those hammerhead sharks?!

3:00: My favorite costume is the yellow bustier and the black slacks. That actually is a hot look.

3:25: The inverted triangle and the back-up dancers on a leash? I feel like this is some Da Vinci Code crap.

3:30: WORK BITCHES ON FIRE.

Yeah… this was slightly better than Britney’s videos the past few years, but at this point, they’ve set the bar pretty low. The video overall feels dated and silly and like Britney can’t dance anymore, but still… I’d rather watch this as opposed to most of Rihanna’s videos.

    She looks great, and I’m happy that she’s gotten herself together but the song is awful. Sorry Brit. :(

    • Camille says:

      yeah plus it seems she is in much better place now but I can’t at her delusional fans saying – it’s her the best video or it’s like 2005 Britney again. Come on.

      • diva says:

        People are saying that? I love Britney but the dancing is still ridiculous (even though it’s more than she usually does). She looks great though!

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      Yeah, she looks hot but the song is crap. And I’m saying this as a HUGE Britney fan who actually liked most of her recent songs :P

    • Minty says:

      I like the song the first time I heard it, and now I’ve come to LOVE it with each subsequent hearing (don’t judge, it’s catchy!)

      The video..1) She looks amazing, and I’ll look at the current choreography with hope. Maybe we only expected so much because we’re basing those expectations on Brit before Kfed. 2) THIS video is a a HUGE improvement over her ’07 VMA performance.

      I feels she’s on her way back.

    • Nikki says:

      Yeah it’s awkward.

  2. Helen says:

    Britney’s body looks good because the image is elongated to make her look thinner. There’s a lot of trickery in this video, but her fans won’t be seeing it because they’ll be too busy clapping to its “epicness.”

    Britney is over and I imagine videos like this one cost a LOT of money to make her look anything but.

    No, I’m not hating on her, I’m just making an observation. :)

    • Pont Neuf says:

      *gasp* Are you suggesting that she is anything other than the embodiment of living divinity?

      I think that this is above and beyond anything that’s been done before in history. The lyrics make Shakespeare look like a clumsy child (that bitch better work on his writing!), the “melody” is better than anything that the likes of Donizetti, Verdi or Mozart ever perpetrated (those bitches better work on their composing!), and Britney is the ultimate example of talent, natural beauty and sophistication.

      Mariah, Whitney and Céline? Who are those bitches? They’d better work to be comparable to Britney!

      • phillykatt says:

        Sorry fangirls but I never thought she could sing and without all that makeup and bleach, she looks pretty basic. I could never understand the appeal.

    • Gabriella says:

      I’m a fan, but I actually agree with you. Her ‘magic’ is gone. Britney is over.
      I don’t know why they keep pushing it. Does she even want to be doing this at this point? But then again, what else could she do? It costs a lot to make her look like this, but she still makes crazy money! Her stans are like religious fanatics, still waiting for her big comeback…

      • European says:

        THIS is something i dont understand too, she realy looks like she does not want to do this. She looks bored. I almost feel sorry for her. I dont know why she doesnt find something else to do. Like produce other artist or well, stay at home with your kids. Shes superrich, she cant spend her money in just one life. Why? If you look at Beyonce or JLo, they have so much energy, you dont have to like them to see what entertainer they are.

      • Bridget says:

        @European: Britney literally doesnt get to make those decisions for herself anymore. She’s still under her father’s conservatorship, and they keep her working because it keeps her out of trouble.

    • gogoGorilla says:

      Totally agree with everything you said. I was noting the fast edits/quick changes before even reading the CB recap. She was not on beat with the other dancers at all, her legs weren’t very high in the air, etc. Also, the desert portion looks an awful lot like Christina bag in the ass chaps day.

      She looks good, for the most part. I do think she is in shape even if they were doing camera tricks to make her look taller and thinner.

      I do love the black pants with the yellow top.

      However, most of the imagery had me scratching my head. Is she trying to be controversial with the whole S&M thing? That was just weird. If is supposed to be a preview of what she’s offering at PH, I can see why the ticket sales have been down. I really don’t think she can actually do a dance show for what, 90 minutes or something?

  3. Grant says:

    I’m over Britney. She looks good but if I’m in the mood for a video with a marginal vocalist who can pull off hot choreography, I’ll stick to Cheryl Cole.

  4. satchel says:

    Why can’t Britney dance anymore :(

    • SleepyJane says:

      This is my question too. I guess her meds make her so lethargic she simply can’t do the rhythmic moves anymore? I’m totally talking out my azz here. I have no idea. Does anyone else have any insight?

    • Samtha says:

      Britney blew out her knee in 2004 or 2005 and had surgery (maybe multiple surgeries) to repair it. She hasn’t danced the same since.

    • Anki says:

      1) Her knee problems still messing with her.

      2) Anti anxiety / ADHD meds making her slower.

      3) Not bouncing back physically after having two kids.

      4) Some other underlying physical problems we may not know about.

      Take a pick.

    • Quinn says:

      Perhaps it’s her psych condition (whatever that actually is…) or, perhaps it would have been a case of MacCauley Culkin syndrome..some people have it when they are very young, but that “it” doesn’t translate into adulthood…I think that about Lohan (even though she screwed herself up), Brooke Shields, and other child stars over the years who were never as charming/talented/beautiful as grown adults as they were as kids. And, clearly…Brit started as a kid. Maybe her spark was dimmed by her mental issues, or maybe it still would have lessened on it’s own. (And yes, all of the above mentioned child stars still had talent as adults..it just somehow wasn’t the SAME.) Madonna stands out, not because she is the most talented bitch ever, but because she stayed physically able to BRING IT, and didn’t always recycle the same old crap, year after year.

    • Dubois says:

      All of the above plus I don’t think she has the mental capacity to remember the choreography either. Her Vegas show is going to be a disaster.

  5. Truthful says:

    A good workout song, that’s all I got.

    her body looks good as heck!

    • Happy21 says:

      Yup! I hear ya. I’ll dance in my head to this song as I’m workin’ it at the gym but other than that this is the only song I’ve even remotely liked from Brit in probably 10 years!

  6. Quinn says:

    To me, whatever Britney had in the late 90′s and early 2000′s that made her “hot”- it’s gone. She’s not sexy to me anymore, and I think the last time I thought she was, it was her “Toxic” video.

    Maybe I just know too much about her now, and can’t look past it…but she always seems to be firing on half of her cylinders these days. Not awful- but then, there’s very little decent competition these days.

  7. ldub says:

    sorry, i’m NOT sorry but i LOVE the vid.
    also, the song is a grower not a shower.

    • Kelley says:

      I love it too. I like the part where she’s in the dress & the sharks are swimming around her. She looks great too.

  8. ALG says:

    Well, she’s come a long way from being barefoot in a gas station bathroom covered in Cheeto dust. Nowhere to go from there but up.

  9. dahlianoir says:

    Ok now i got the “work” she brags about. Apparently you just need to wear lingerie and sell your “talents”. I’m tired of exploited half naked ladies in music videos, I want exploited dongs for a change :l

    • Hakura says:

      @dahlianoir – IKR? I know she was trying to go the whole ‘bondage’ route, why couldn’t she have put a bunch of pretty boys in leather bikini bottoms, using tech-toys as ball-gags?

      She should’ve gone the Madonna route, & got a bunch of male models. One doesn’t have to be a ‘woman’ to be called a ‘bitch’. I too am tired of all the half named women in submissive positions in music videos.

    • European says:

      +10000!!!! Women has to be naked to be succesfull, is this the result for the female emacipation? NO thanks! its sad.
      I love Mariahs voice but i hate to watch her ;-) She was so much better in her younger days where she didnt feel the need to be SOOO Sexy haha ;-)

  10. Mimi says:

    Brit looks like she had a lot of fun making this video! Good for her!

  11. Rux says:

    I love Britney! I think she looks amazing in the video. I always had major envy for her legs and ass but she works “Bitch”.

    In my opinion, I think they finally got her meds cocktail right. The recent interviews and this video have her as almost back to her normal self and not so out of it. Bi Polar and the meds that go along with it, take sometime to balance out. It’s creating a recipe and you have to mess with the ingredients and measurements of those ingredients before it’s “right” for that pallete/person.

  12. Shelly says:

    I am obsessed with this song. I love it so much! Britney looks fantastic in this video, but I was expecting some hardcore dance moves in it, and I feel really let down. This song deserves some epic dancing, not this weird vid.

  13. claire says:

    I’m not a fan but I root for her. I mean, why not? I haven’t heard anything about her being a crappy person or anything. So I hope she does well.

    This song is pretty catchy – so it will probably totally become a dance hit. I wish she didn’t have to be so medicated, but if that’s what keeps her functioning then do what you gotta do. I will say – I saw her recent interview announcing the Vegas deal and that was the most lucid, quick-witted, non-robotic that I’ve seen her be in a long time. So good for her.

  14. dahlianoir says:

    By the way, if you like awesome dance moves, here’s what’s number 1 in france right now. “Papaoutai” means “dad where are you”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiKj0Z_Xnjc

  15. MellyBee says:

    She’s had a little facial tweaking. I can’t out my finger on exactly what she has had done, but there is something kind of “off” about her face.

  16. bns says:

    I love her omg

  17. missmerry says:

    when i see pictures of her, and especially when i see her in videos, all i see is stiff britney.

    she’s sick. or she was sick and i don’t think she got better. she just kept working, or being told to work…and i know it’s not right to feel ‘sorry’ for others, because maybe she is still having an OK time with her career, but it never seems like it…

    i understand she is older than she was when she had her good dance moves, but if she can’t dance anymore, her videos shouldn’t be quick cuts of her doing pretty basic moves (not even dance moves, most of the moving she does isn’t really ‘dancing’), it just makes her look worse.

    She always looks tired, she always looks stiff and I wish someone would force her to take a break or she could give herself a break, because her songs are bad, she barely sings and when she does it all electronic, and she can’t dance well anymore.

    • Clever hand says:

      I always think of that quote from around the time she had the breakdown, she said something like “Britney’s been working since she was a little girl and now Britney’s tired”. It’s all I can think of when I see her heavily medicated ass trying to stay relevant

      • Hakura says:

        @Clever hand & missmerry – I agree w/you both. I don’t understand why Britney feels the need to keep going, surely she’s made more than enough money to last both she *&* her sons a life-time?

        I do believe she loved music, loved performing, at one point, but things change in life. She just makes me sad, seeing her this way, knowing what she used to be.

  18. Samtha says:

    This is the most she’s danced since her knee injury and the best she’s looked in a while.

  19. PoliteTeaSipper says:

    Heaven help me, I actually like the song. I can give the video a pass.

  20. A says:

    The “work” we need to do is work in a strip club and get whipped? Umm no thank you and what’s with blowing up the manikins – creepy, “work” or get destroyed? really anti-woman, not sexy.

  21. Nev says:

    Her hair is happening!!! Britney dancing on her back ,legs up, soooooo good. Best video in a long time…love the song.

    Blackout Album Forever.

  22. Adrien says:

    2:27. Who is that? That ain’t Britney.

  23. Katie says:

    She looks hot and I like the song but man…its sad to see her “dancing”, if this video even qualifies as that.

  24. Abby says:

    My thoughts
    1. holy crap she looks amazing. She’s 2 years older than me, the same height as me and usually the same weight as me. I’m pregnant right now and she gives me hope!
    2. This reminds me so much of OLD BRITNEY! In a good way! Except for the whole S&M stuff. With a random Dr. Dre pill speakers advertisement
    3. They do all that in crazy high heels? I would barely be able to walk… but they;re doing some kinda dancing.
    4. She sounds like Niki Minaj
    5. I really think this is the best she’s looked since before the meltdown.

  25. The Old KC says:

    Anyone else notice the faux British accent? Like, you’re from Louisiana. Please.

    • Kim says:

      Yes! What in the world? Doesnt even sound like her at the speaking parts.

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      Yes! Thats like the one thing that is really standing out to me here. That WTF accent? Its like pseudo British with a hint of eccentric rich lady thrown in. I feel like shes trying to copy Madonnas fake accent. Make her stop!

  26. d says:

    “video overall feels dated and silly”: yup. I agree, she seems stiff and the video has no warmth and no connection to her like they used to. Overall, videos like these are just a tired concept. Like, geez, whips and lingerie and animals. Woo. I don’t know, it’s kind of sad. I like Britney, but I hate the image and the PR and the lies they keep telling. I’m glad she’s “better” (b/c who really knows) and that she looks good, but come on, it’s makeup and video editing. We all know what she looks like when she’s not covered in makeup and dressed in nice clothes. Not to say she looks terrible, but it’s just so obvious it’s all a lie and smoke and mirrors and it’s just…enough already, people. Just stop with the sexpot image because it’s just not true. It’s insulting and gross and makes me feel sad for Britney…what kind of awful people surround her that they keep doing this kind of stuff?

    • Hakura says:

      It has to be so hard for Britney, seeing people go crazy about how amazing she looks… When it was just a trick of editing, that was necessary because that’s not what she looks like.

      It has to be bad for her self esteem, knowing they *had* to go to those lengths (all the editting/smoke & mirrors) to make her look ‘good’ to others, perhaps making her think she doesn’t look ‘good’ as just herself. I know it’d make me feel pretty bad about myself. She’s such a pretty girl, but the ‘industry’ insists on her trying to be her 20-year old self every time.

      • d says:

        I agree and I think it’s part of what drove her mental. I also think the way she looks on her own time is deliberate compared to her video persona, so as to retain her sense of self vs. the Britney that people always want/see/never leave alone. I think she does that in her own way, to protect herself. I hope now at least that she knows video Britney is not her. BUT, the problem is this video persona is a tired one, imo, and just doesn’t work anymore. She’s always had an athletic build, apparently liked/s sports, and if you see her in her documentaries, she was always about normal and true to herself and wanting real relationships. The “sexy” dominatrix thing just makes me roll my eyes now. I think a much more fun video would have been something with those athletic, working out, dance-y type overtones. I think Britney likes fun, why not make a fun video? This one is just…ugh. I guess I get where they were going with the whole “work bi***” idea, like RuPaul’s maybe (?), but idk… again, not fun, tired, seen it, meh.

      • Hakura says:

        I think you’re very right, in that Britney learned somewhere along the line that she needed, mentally, to maintain a separation between ‘Britney: The Sex Symbol Entertainer’ & ‘Britney: The Young Woman Who Worked Her Ass Off Her Whole Life & Now Has Children’. Which is what she should be doing (& probably wasn’t, back in the day before the breakdown, because no one can be perfection 24/7.)

  27. Meggin says:

    That song is horrific. Beyond bad. Maybe it’s just me.,.

  28. I Choose Me says:

    Her body does look great and the video was ok. I’m just happy to see that she’s got life in her eyes again.

  29. gg says:

    Time to stop the hootchie stuff and the “bad bitch” and for that matter, her overuse of the word “bitch”. She’s getting too old for this crap.

  30. kim says:

    Did a youtube of her life/career one day just because

    I was currious about her and I get why ppl love her so much. Watching her deteriorate a little in each interview and the documentary shed light on her career and life. As for this video? Concept sucked.

  31. Ari says:

    I like the video and its fine with me if she doesn’t dance at all times someone listed a bunch of reasons above but of why she isn’t but who cares there are lots of people who sing and do pop and don’t dance and they are even younger than she is! So not a big factor for me, I am just happy she is doing something ANYTHING and keeping it good for so long and hopefully she is happy and finally at peace. She looks really good too, although I can definitely see a lot of video editing like someone mentioned already.

    • Kellie says:

      It’s true. Even though she doesn’t dance as good as she used to, she still dances better than most of the pop stars of the moment. Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and Kesha aren’t natural born dancers but their music still sells. People are overly critical of Britney’s dancing because of how good she used to dance. I don’t hear people criticizing any of the other ladies I just mentioned and Britney still dances better than them. She doesn’t dance better than Ciara though.

  32. Spring Season says:

    The video sucked! I am tired of over sexualized high paid girls making videos and people saying it’s good. Brit-Brit has had a good video since Toxic or even My Prerogative. The only part I would say she looked good in was the pool scene with the sharks. I do like when she is saying “you wanna…then work b****.” Of course I am no b**** but the concept is motivating to say you can’t have what you want by sitting on your tush. Other than that the video is bothersome to me. There could have been a better concept to make this song pop other than this porn trash.

    • Sally says:

      Well, the work is to be a hypersexual, submissive, controlled doll toy; she has to sell her sexual image in order for her handlers to grant her the mansions, etc. it is a sad message that describes how she is used.

  33. IceQueen says:

    She can’t dance anymore :( But she does look great.

  34. heidi says:

    trashy

  35. Rose says:

    Eh I liked the video. She looks qood. dancing was fine. Better than that roar video.

  36. Apsutter says:

    Well I’m glad that she’s dancing a little bit but it’s pretty clear that she can’t throw down like she used to. I’m sick of all the hair throwing and arm “dancing” though. I do like that yellow bustier outfit(reminds me of Drive Me Crazy Britney) and I like the pink dress too

  37. RobN says:

    That’s just really dull. I actually liked that video she did with the ex-fiance/manager; it was fun and had a story. Standing in one place and waving your arms is not dancing and it just generally doesn’t seem like much fun.

  38. Angie says:

    This video brought out the fire in her because it’s obvious commentary on her enslavement by the industry. She needs to go more in this fierce direction, she will only improve the more she does, a coming back to life so to speak. She’s needed a rebellious outlet for years, I think that was what her breakdown was about, but it was too self sabotaging to suffice. And it’s most fitting for her to use her music, the thing that enslaved her, to ultimately rebel with. It will bring back the f*cks she has not given for a long time now, I think. I hope she has realized that, changes her handlers when need be, and keeps giving the industry a giant fuck you. She is legendary enough on her own now that she doesnt need to ‘work, bitch’ for the industry, to stay relevant. It’s time that they be her bitch. I hope she truly realises that and this isn’t a blip, because that is precisely what she’s needed to do for years.

    Brit Brits problem has always been that she has been too humble and modest for her situation. She was indoctrinated from an early age to think she was the property. No one deserves to be a Diva more than she does. It’s just a matter of her breaking through her inclination to be passive and take charge. Her image employs them. She is the one that these people work for — not the other way around (re: her as the dominatrix/puppeteer etc). There is a lot to take from this video and song if you pay attention.

    • RobN says:

      You’ve over thought this.

    • Hakura says:

      @Angie – I didn’t see any ‘fire’ or ‘fierce’ in Britney, in this video… I’ve been a Britney fan since I was in middle school (when she did ‘Baby One More Time), & followed her career since.

      I could be wrong, but I sort of agree with RobN, I think you’ve overthought the video a little bit, giving meaning where things were probably just meant to (& failed to) be ‘sexy’.

    • M says:

      Angie, I love your take. A lot of older people — older women in particular — don’t give Brit the credit she deserves because, why? They’re used to a particular kind of enslavement. So when they see her busting out with “Baby One More Time,” which in the end was an empowering song about how FEMALE DESIRE mattered too. That SHE was willing to go to great lengths for a guy — when they see that on display, they freak out.

      And now the older crowds are trying to put her down for the Work Bitch video, when it’s also an empowering message: that women can take charge too.

      You bet that when the sexist fools in the music industry hear the lyrics, “Keep your head high, fingers to the sky. They gon’ try to try ya, but they can’t deny ya,” they know exactly what she’s saying. She’s saying they’re not going to hold her, and other women like her, down anymore.

      Young women get that message and the fan reaction to this video has been PHENOMENAL, but older women don’t hear it and they try to put her down.

      Oh well.

      • Hakura says:

        @M – I’m trying very much to give you the benefit of the doubt, that you didn’t mean to insinuate that all women who didn’t react to the song lyrics/video as anything spectacular, are old women.

        I didn’t particularly see all the 1/2 naked women in skin tight leather lingerie with product-placement Dr. Dre speakers in their mouths in lieu of ball-gags … as necessarily celebrating women’s lib.

        But regardless, you should be careful how you word things, unless you intended to be insulting to anyone who doesn’t agree w/you. I wasn’t aware 27 was ‘old’.

      • M says:

        @Hakura, So… you think being lumped in with “old” women is “insulting”?

        Lol. Hmm….

      • Hakura says:

        @M – Lol xD I just resented the way she was using the ‘old’ term, like once you leave you teen years (when your brain hasn’t even finished developing), you’re ‘too old‘ to understand anything ‘real’. It reminded me of the Scientologist view of being smartest at birth & regressing throughout life. You know, idiotic.

        But I have a thing about not calling anyone (except my ancient great-grandmother) old. I sort of see it more as a state of mind or how you look at the world.

  39. Hypocrisy says:

    The state of music is just too sad these days to enjoy the visual.
    No great physique won’t save me from the permanent ache of my ears listenning to that…It gives me migraine.

    Bring back great melodies with decent lyrics instead of all that loud cacophony wrapped in absolute mediocrity and maybe then, i’ll be able to enjoy the visual aspect of a video.

    For now, everything is just good for the trash can.

  40. Tastykakes says:

    They had her at the little mirrored vanity so they could have a nice setting for that bedazzled bottle of Fantasy perfume – product placement!

    Really I’m just glad she’s doing something. She looks like she feels better, I hope that’s the case.

  41. European says:

    im from europe, i often go out to the clubs. in europe, dance electronic music like this is very “in” for decades, now it finaly arrived in the US, thanks to David Guetta. So as someone who knows this music scene, if i can say it like this is, the sound, well its very typical electro dance you can hear every weekend in european elctro clubs (and there are better songs than this). so the sound to me sounds very simylar to many other house/Dance tracks ive heard before so the song to me is very hmmm sounds like a copy of a old dancetrack, ive heard this sound before. She looks good but i doubt she will look very long like this but thats ok, she changed.
    some tracks who are really great dance tracks now are
    Martin Garrix with Animals
    Duke Dumond with Need U
    Netsky with We can only live for today
    and of course everything from calvin harris.
    So, no thanks Britney, i prefer people who do work for their music, Britney is very lucky to have people around her who write and make every song for her, she does nothing for it, just moves a little bit and sings two words.

  42. aaquarius74 says:

    The only real “Britney sound” in this song is the bridge.

  43. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Awful song. I can’t get past the first oh 30 seconds or so of it.
    And the video looks like a bunch of transsexuals prancing around. Terrible.

    *Sigh* I love Brit, have followed her entire career since middle school (when she put out ‘Baby One More Time). Her last few singles have been going downhill, so I honestly didn’t expect much.

    Something good I can say… at least she didn’t lay on/rub herself all over the car. (I thought, in trying to outdo Miley’s recent nonsense, she might do something like that.)

    It will certainly be interesting to see what the two of them came up with, together.

    Ugh, no. I think they probably used every smoke and mirrors trick to make Brit’s body and weave look good here. All those fast cuts – cause she can’t keep up.

    I just feel sorry for this woman and I never feel sorry for celebrities. Her family should let her find some peace and learn how to be a mom.

      @magpie – I think, at least from what I’ve seen, that she’s been a very good Mom to her boys (& a loving Aunt to her Niece Maddie). She always looks so happy when she’s spending time w/just them, which I think is what keeps her mentally/emotionally ‘grounded’, even while dealing w/the difficult treatment/medications she has to take for her mental health.

      I do think, at public events like the Smurfs 2 premiere, that she has trouble expressing herself comfortably while she’s with her kids in a ‘professional setting’, always looking more ‘awkward’, like she’s not sure where she’s supposed to be focusing her attention (or which she’s supposed to be, Popstar persona or mom). But I don’t think that means she’s struggling as a Mom. =)

    Did they switch her meds? She has seemed more present lately? Or maybe that ex-fiance was the problem. That song is god awful though. She sounds like a chipmunk…and still can’t dance.

    she looks great, Brit’s dancing seems a bit sluggish. Maybe it’s the cutting though

    I think it’s hilarious her backup dancers look like Katy Perry

    Awful. NO. Let’s not kid ourselves.

    Not only does she look simply gorgeous but I love the song and video!! Sooo glad to see her back in the saddle again as I’ve missed her!! I can’t believe how critical you people are on here, does anyone pick apart all of the other videos out there?? Techno/dance music is big in alot of clubs so I can see this being huge. I liked the message of the song/video as well, that if you want something don’t depend on some man to get it for you, work bitch!!! haha I just hope she’s happy and doing what she enjoys.
