Watch: Britney Spears' video for '3'
You know how so many times the movie you have playing in your head based on your interpretation of a song is infinitely more interesting than the video the artist comes up with?
Is it possibly that I have a dirtier mind than Britney Spears? I seriously doubt that, but my video for â€œ3â€ would have been much raunchier and sexier than what sheâ€™s presented here.
Directed by Diane Martel, we see Brit Brit, who looks fabulous, but a little distracted, playing up to the camera as she autotunes her way through the ditty about threesomes. She looks sexily into the cameraâ€”or she at least tries toâ€”we lost our focus when we thought we had a clear shot of her hair extensions and our mind went off on a tangent on if she had them or not. Weâ€™ve found Spears tremendously sexy in other clips, but here itâ€™s as if Martel said â€œGuys love it when you look right in the camera with a â€˜F*** meâ€™ stare and throw your hair back and moan. Make love to the camera babyâ€¦ â€œ
She gyrates with four other women in a PG way as they hang off a pole (not a stripper pole, a horizontal one, more like a closet rod). She then cavorts with two guys in a pretty innocent fashion. Weâ€™ve seen Victoriaâ€™s Secret commercials that were more provocative. And much, much better Spears videos.
