It's Britney's Video, Bitch!

I received an email earlier in the day wherein a little bird suggested that I log onto iTunes tonight because Britney Spears's new video for her hot single Gimme More would make it's real worldwide debut (even tho MTV is scheduled to debut the video on TRL next Monday, I was told the video would acually debut online first tonight at midnight). I thought it might be a good idea to check out the UK version of iTunes (since it's past midnight there, only 10:30pm here in LA as I type this) and lo and behold, there is the video. Since I cannot download anything from the UK version of iTunes, here are a few screencaps from the preview of the video that is streamable from the site:


People magazine has been shown the video and offers this description:

A fit-looking Bad Girl Britney sports a tattoo on her bicep and dresses in all black. She wears a leather vest, a studded belt and skimpy panties over ripped fishnet stockings. As she dances erotically around a pole and up against a mirror, she flips her hair while special-effects lights flash around her as the camera moves slightly in and out of focus to the beat of the song, giving it a raw and edgy look. At times she's dancing alone and at others she's with several other female dancers. Meanwhile, the more innocent-looking blonde alter-ego Good Britney watches from the bar, giggling at times and looking stunned at others. The footage goes from black and white with aura-like blue and pink lights to full blown color ... While the stripper-inspired choreography isn't going to blow critics away, it's much improved from her notorious performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. Spears, who seems to be genuinely enjoying herself, pulls off deeper moves and wears a much more confident – and seductive – look on her face.

UPDATE: CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD GIMME MORE FROM THE US VERSION OF iTUNES.

Additionally, Britney.com (the site owned by Britney's record label) has been updated thusly:


There really ain't much yet but it's a big improvement over the flash animation that read Gimme More that used to be in place. BritneySpears.com (the site that operates as her personal website) has yet to be updated. [Source]

BreatheHeavy.com is now reporting that the title of Britney's new album will be Blackout, which is what I reported previously in THIS post last Saturday where I wrote:

Additionally, in other perhaps exclusive news, another Pink reader has emailed me to say that he got word from a friend that works at Zomba Records (Britney's label) that the name of her new album will be Blackout. This reader said that his friend "seemed confident" that that would be the name ... so if this news turns out to be true, remember where you heard it from.

BUT ... another little bird suggests that the title may turn out to be Piece of Me, which we already know is the title of one of the songs on the album.

UPDATE: Amazon.com is listing Britney's new album for preorder with the title Blackout:


Woot! It turns out that the little birdie who sang to me last weekend was right afterall.

All this influx of new Britneyness is fun ... and very distracting from all the crazy drama that has been engulfing Brit's life ... at least for now.
