Britney Spears drops 'I Wanna Go' music video, which shows her battling cyborgs, dancing in bikini top - watch
Britney Spears, who recently began her "Femme Fatale" tour, has released a video for her song "I Wanna Go," which shows her cursing at journalists at a press conference, flashing a cop, whipping cyborg photographers and dancing in a bikini inside a convertible.
The track was released earlier this month and is from the 29-year-old singer's new album, also called "Femme Fatale." Spears dons long blonde hair with pink and black streaks in the clip, which was posted online on Wednesday, June 22.
Spears appears before journalists and is bombarded with questions such as "Is it true that you hate puppies?" She is also asked if she can confirm if she is "pregnant with Brad Pitt's love child" and whether she banned "junk food, smiles, candy, sunshine and laughter" from her tour.
Spears then takes a stroll outside, where she signs a copy of her new album and appears to flash a cop, who has stopped a Volkswagen driver, as well as nearby civilian pedestrians, including a red-headed boy. After getting frisked by the officer, Spears makes off with a pair of handcuffs. She then poses for a paparazzo on the street and smashes his camera.
The singer then literally hops a cab, stands on it and uses a microphone to whip several other photographers around her who have begun aiming their own cameras at her, as a group of dogs watch her. The men later appear to turn into cyborgs.
Luckily, a man in a convertible comes to her rescue and she jumps in the car. At this point, she is wearing a polka dot bikini top and skirt. But her savior, who is called Guillermo and is apparently an avid fan of milk, is not who he appears to be.
The clip also features inside jokes - in some scenes, Spears, who was a member of Disney's "All New Mickey Mouse Club" series when she was younger, wears a shredded shirt that shows Mickey Mouse ears. A movie theater's marquee also reads "Crossroads 21: Cross Harder." Spears' 2002 film "Crossroads" made a profit at the box office but was highly criticized by top movie critics.
Spears is constantly followed by celebrity photographers in real life. She rose to fame as a teen star and has become a tabloid favorite, especially after she suffered a meltdown in 2007. She and Kevin Federline, father of her two sons, divorced and Spears spent many months partying.
She then underwent a rehab stint for substance abuse and famously shaved her own head at a salon (see video). Her turmoil made international headlines and inspired Barry Manilow's latest album, "15 Minutes."
Spears made a comeback in 2009 with her "Circus" tour. The series of concerts grossed $131.8 million dollars and was the fifth most successful series of concerts in the world. Spears began her highly-anticipated "Femme Fatale" tour last week to promote her new album. Hip hop star Nicki Minaj is joining her on the road. Spears is performing her first concerts in North America and head over to Europe in September.
"Femme Fatale," Spears' seventh major record, was released in March and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart.
