Britney Spears Tweets a first look at 'Hold It Against Me' video: See it here!

Dying to see what master-of-the-music video Britney Spears is going to pull out of her bag of tricks for her forthcoming “Hold It Against Me” video? Behold! Over the weekend, Brit-Brit Tweeted a first look at the shoot for the clip—the picture at the left shows her in a red suit (reminiscent of that lacquered lusciousness she wore in “Oops, I Did it Again” vid, maybe?), appropriately bottled-blonded, and surrounded by about a zillion microphones. Not exactly sure how that all plays into the idea of holding it against Britney if she said she wants your body now, but I’ll go with it at this point. With all that pressure, who wouldn’t need a vacation tonight? (OK, I’ll stop it with the silly, lyrical puns.)

Besides just the photo, Britney also Tweeted words! On Saturday, she said, “Day 1 of the HAIM shoot with [director’ Jonas Akerlund. Such an incredible experience. I think this will be one of the best videos I have ever done.” Yesterday—with the photo—she wrote, “Day 2 is a wrap! #HIAM video coming soon…”

Are you guys excited for the “Hold It Against Me” video? Can you make any sense of the photo? Sound off in the comments below!

    looks like it’s going to lean more towards toxic-pretty cool.Hopefully this features dancing that blows my mind.

    • SXiPPY

      Yeah, I couldn’t give two tracks of Britney’s nappy weave extensions what the plot consists of (no “Gimme More” though- Yikes!), I just wanna see how she intends to “drop it like a hood and show me how” she works it out in choreography with the dub-step bit. With Jonas directing and after reading how she went apesh!t when presented the dance moves her choreographer wanted her to do; my expectations are quite high.

  • Chichi

    She better dance her plentiful azz off. I don’t want another “Circus: The Hand waving Tour Across America.”

    • Arron

      I was an understudy back up dancer for her circus tour, and honestly mate, she worked her ass off in rehearsals and the concept of the tour was that she was the ‘ringleader’ and they don’t dance they pretty much walk around and present the acts but in this case of the tour it was Britney showing off her dancers and the spectacular of the show :) so just believe in the Girl dude :)

  • justin

    I can’t wait to see this video! Dance dance dance dance!!!

  • addie

    A wheel of microphones, huh? Looks like another whine-fest about how the paparazzi won’t leave her alone to me.

    • whatevs

      Why, did Kristen Stewart write the song?

    • miguelmedina

      Where the hell did you get that Microphones represent Papparazzis?….. are you retarded….. Cameras represnt the paps….

      • Kyle

        No your retarded, I totally understand what that person was trying to imply. You need to look outside the box. The micro phones could stand for the paps, the paps are always talking to britney when there stalking her and always askin her questions so this could be that, and the camera itself would be the paps. Recording britney saying what she is saying. “if I said my heart was beating loud, if we could escape the crowd somehow” it’s proprably just a metaphor for the paps and media always interfering and wanting to know what’s goin on. Plus britney is saying her heart is beating loud so the microphones could be trying to listen, and then she says if we could escape the crowd somehow… Which sounds like if only she could escape the media and take a break ( need a vacation tonight) …… A picture speaks a thousand words!

    • Chris

      Yeah another whine fest…because she wrote the song? No she didnt so try not the make assumptions when you dont have your facts straight.

      • Kyle

        Did I say she wrote the song? Erm I think not, you need to learn to read! I said the above could stand for or might represent what she is trying to say…. Plus music writers and producers actually know who there writing for they don’t just make a song and throw it at anyone, this was intended to be for britney so therefore they know know about her, who doesn’t! For all we know it could be about what I think it is. Your imagination is just to bland to digest views and opinions.

    If I told you how easy it is to get a job in this recession, you wouldn’t believe me. But the truth is more employers are going online to find people just like you and me who are ready to work at a good job. The only thing that makes sense is to stop wasting time filling out a dozen applications and going from one boring low paying job to another. I found this site that pretty much matches you up with your dream job that is available. I have found it very helpful. Go to

  • PNK

    Nice, she misspells her own acronym in Tweet # 1.
    I won’t hold it against her…

    • Jase

      That was EW. It is spelt correctly in Britney’s tweet.

      • PNK

        I only saw Brit’s second one, so it looks like the first was wrong.
        Oh, well, these are small things!

  • Michael

    This article makes one think Britney is in control of her career and has any say over how her videos are directed.

    • justin

      She does. She came up with the concepts for 3 of her best/most popular videos: Baby One More Time, Toxic, and Womanizer.

  • Darren

    Anyone know when we can see the finished video????

    • Justin

      There are rumors it will premiere after the Super Bowl, before the Glee episode.

      • Classy


  • Kyle

    In HIAM Britney says “If I said my heart was beating loud, if we could escape the crowd somehow”. I think it’s just a metaphor of how much attention she gets from the paps and media, which ultimately is saying there is a sense of no privacy which the micro phones could be portraying? There is a ton of micro phone there, and no suprise he gets alot of attention…… She later sings ” you feel like paradise, and I need a vacation tonight”. …. Which is britney wanting to get away from that…. For awhile anyway…. She says vacation lol.

  • Kyle

    I ment she above

  • kat


  • Classy

    Looks dope:-) Go Ms. Brit Brit!!!

    • Annabel

      She looks like Kesha.

      • justin

        Who is Kesha? Don’t know her, don’t care.

  • mark

    If she really dances, and has a character to potray, yes I wll be excited. Regardless of the video, It’s the best song shes put out since Toxic.

  • Ray

    If it’s the same stuff she’s been doing the past three years don’t waste my time. The video scene has moved passed the “usual”.

  • jon

    britney sucks isnt this the same song she released off the last three boring azz albums either take some voice lessons or do porn but give it up

    • Kyle

      Obviously it’s not the same song! If you don’t like it then why have you searched her on the Internet?
      You may think she needs singing lessons but I think the 80+million albums she has sold shows us that she doesn’t really need your opinion.
      Plus it’s number one in 17 countries….. That says it all really.
