Britney Spears - Circus

13 December Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Britney time! I've had this song stuck in my head for the past week, maybe even longer, because there's this guy I really like, but there's nothing I can do about it... So naturally music is there to describe exactly how I'm feeling. Now I used to just think this was a normal Britney Spears single, until the Twister Rave Remix came out, now it's my TUNE! And it totally describes me, I am a ringleader when I'm on the dancefloor with my friends. "Born To Make You Happy" is also about me, according to my friends. Britney Spears outshines herself in this video, relating totally to the song allowing connotations with circuses into the song and video, which is just perfect.

Britney Spears is currently in Las Vegas doing her show Britney: Piece of Me. She has confirmed she is working on her ninth studio album, which has definitely excited me. Her most recent single was a collaboration with Iggy Azalea which wasn't exactly a hit, but did get people talking. Her show has been selling well so far, including sold out shows in the first few months. I'm hopeful her ninth studio album will allow for a world tour, as I've been wanting to see Britney Spears live since I was little, even if she's always criticized for not singing live, it'll be a show I'll never forget, just like this music video.

This video was directed by Francis Lawrence, while the song was written by Lukasz Gottwald (Dr. Luke), Claude Kelly and Benjamin Levin. Some popular names there, unfortunately it only hit number 13 here in the UK. She is looking stunning in this circus-themed video, which includes a lion or two and an elephant!

A perfect dance sequence is also used, her choreography, as always, is on point. Her dance ability is out of this world and this definitely proves that.

The start includes product placement from Bugari, as well as her own fragrances. This so reminds me of when Avril Lavigne does the exact same thing in her "What The Hell" music video, which I've just realised. The jewellery by Bugari is beautiful and looks stunning on Britney.

I love the circus acts, with Britney Spears being the ringleader, because that's what the song states and that is what she is when she dances, along with me. Unfortunately she doesn't have a bat at being a fire breather, although they are included in the video along with a mime on stilts, clowns, contortionists and ribbon dancers.

Overall, this is a perfect video, that I can't fault in any way.Even though Britney Spears was currently not well during these years, you can't tell much, if at all. Dancing is in sync, her performance and acting skills is more than good, she looks like the Britney we all know and love, especially at the end when she catches the hat and is laughing. I would never have thought she wasn't well. But I totally believe we now have the old Britney back, and hopefully with her ninth studio album, she'll finally hit number one on the UK album chart, it's outstanding how she has never got to the top spot yet.
