Video: Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me”

Britney Spears in Hold It Against Me
Britney Spears.

Let me just back up and write that name out one more time… Britney. Spears.

Her name nearly says it all. She was a huge star, she’s still an international icon, and no matter what happens down the road, she will always live on in infamy as the very symbol of a star who had it all before she fell apart.

And somehow she still is back for more.

Whatever you say about her, Britney’s latest video is a spectacle, and it will leave you wondering what’s going on with the media-hungry star today. If nothing else, after everything that has already happened to her, the video also begs the question if the video features 100% pure Britney, or some concoction that’s part-Britney, part-stand-in.

(Frankly, it seems almost impossible that Britters is back in top form, so I’m guessing at least part of the dancing involves some sort of stand-in, but apparently she’s got her body back in performance-shape.)
