New Britney Spears Video Riffs on Terminator 2, Half Baked and Crossroads
Britney Spears's brand of barely-there vocals and half-hearted choreography make you question her role (or whether she has one) in her own music, stardom, and unending fandom. Does her participation in her own phenomenon even matter to her fans? Fortunately, whoever makes Britney's decisions set her up with "I Wanna Go," a new, interesting video that riffs on plenty of things I hold dear, including Terminator 2, Half Baked, the video for "Thriller," and Spears's own movie Crossroads. Good move, Britney.
It's not good enough to make our list of the 10 Best Videos Based on Movies, but I'd say this is Britney's best video since "Toxic." In fact, I'd rather this win the VMA for Video of the Year than "Piece of Me," which took home the big statue in 2008. She stands little chance against Lady Gaga, Adele, or Beyonce this year, but that sounds about right anyway, no?
