The best way to end a long, long Monday: A new Britney Spears video for our favorite song from her latest record, “Femme Fatale.” And, according to Brit’s tweet, it’s one of her faves, too! Isn’t that just special?
“Criminal” was shot in London just before Britney launched the European leg of her Femme Fatale Tour, directed by Chris Marrs Piliero. It features her real-life beau, agent Jason Trawick, as her partner in crime. Literally.
Brit begins the video at a lavish party, accompanied by a guy who is less than pleasant. “Could you try smiling just once? It’s embarrassing. You look like you’re at a funeral,” he snaps, before grabbing her face violently. He is totally not worthy of her smiles, y’all!
After a few tears and a few spritzes of her latest perfume, Britney returns to the party, where her boyfriend is flirting with another woman. Britney accuses the girl of being a whore (because it’s totally the chick’s fault!) and she and loser boyfriend head outside, where he slaps her.
In sweeps vigilante Jason Trawick! He saves the day, sweeps Britney off her feet… and into a life of crime.
Whatever. We dig it. Leave us a note in the comments and let us know what you think!
