First Look: Britney Spears's "I Wanna Go"
By Brent Ramsey
Noted: Out's April cover girl, Britney Spears, is badass.
In her new video for “I Wanna Go,” the singer femme fatale battles a gang of cyborg paparazzi, as well as her own pop image. Spears, decked out in spikes and safety-pinned clothing, wields her microphone (obviously her weapon of choice) and shows the world that even a pop princess and mother of two can kick some ass. And she does it so well.
With a slur of a few choice words to her less-than-adoring press, Ms. Spears sets out on a quest to voice her independence and celebrate her seductive abilities, charming a cop, an adolescent and her lactose-loving cyborg bodyguard.
Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, the video showcases Spears’s punk side and pays homage to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” If you haven’t yet, check it out!
