Shot in London last month, "Criminal" is Britney's fourth single and new music video from her Femme Fatale Album. The video was directed by Chris Marrs Piliero and is basically a Bonnie and Clyde style love affair. It opens with Brit getting into a fight with her mean English boyfriend at a posh society party... then as they make their way to leave (just to send the message home) Mr. Abusive slaps Spears...
Jason Trawick, Britney's real-life boyfriend, comes to her rescue.... ummm, well Kind of!?! He plays one hot brooding bad guy with a soft spot of blonde damsels in distress. Which therefor sets off a wild chain of events and triggers a very steamy and naked love affair.
Then as most would expect; She kisses him... He kisses her.... They get it on... then Britney mixes in SOME dancing in a hallway ( We all know Britney doesn't do much dancing anymore) Next they head to a convenience store, where Spears decides she wants to rob the joint guns blazing. After the stickup, the Bonnie and Clyde duo steal a car and head back to Jason's loft to get it on some more. Followed by a revealing shower scene which includes slow panned shots on their wet, naked bodies. As they wrap the steamy shower session, the police close in on them, blasting a hail of gunfire into the apartment.... But Britney and her man just continue to kiss as bullets soar around them like a John Woo movie.... and naturally the duo escape!
Now a certified BAD Bitch, kicking ass and robbing Quickie Marts.... Long gone are the days when Britney used to dance around with pig-tales and school girl skirts, claiming to be a virgin!
