What is the connection there? I don’t understand. You don’t have maybe true arguments? I’m here to discuss, not to trash. I just tell my opinion. Wow. I’m not even allowed to say my OWN opinion? Pathetic, that’s just toxic since we are all free to give our opinion. And my opinion, is that music video is just not good and too vulgar, I respect people who like it but I told that objectively, Britney did better music video. @Blackout2006 mentioned me to give my opinion too, as far as I know, we have right to disagree or not like something even if it comes from Britney, right? That being said, does it means that people with different opinions are not welcomed here? 

Imagine having this conclusion from what I have said. Contradiction at its best.

No but just tell me where I said something wrong? My post describes just my own opinion towards an Unreleased Music Video, I even said that colors and opinions can’t be discussed as I respect people with different opinions so I respect people who like this mv, and I added that objectively we can’t tell this mv is better than any music video of Britney (don’t tell me it surpasses Toxic or BOMT which are the most iconic videos). So now, tell me where I did something wrong? I’m not here to fight with anyone, I’m glad to share my opinions and read other’s opinions, but you started to send hates towards me while I’ve just expressed myself about a music video.

And you are allowed to do so.

Exhale was crazy that day when the video leaked! I think a lot of us couldn’t believe it. I agree with some fans it doesn’t really fit the meaning of the song and the released video did a lot better. Britney looked amazing in this video though, especially in the cage scenes. A final cut would have been even better. I still wonder why this video got scrapped, it’s always been a mystery to me.

On April 12, 2019, a clip with footage from the original David LaChapelle-directed Make Me... video, leaked online, almost three years since the official video was released. Make Me... was the lead single off Britney Spears' ninth studio album Glory (2016), and it featured rapper G-Eazy.

The shooting of the original video, took place in early June 2016. Britney posted several photos from the set, and even gave an interview for E! News.

 

 

 

 

Some clips from the shooting were captured by people that were at the location

 

Ultimately, when the official video premiered in August, it turned out to be a completely different thing, directed by Randee St. Nicholas, even though some low quality clips from the LaChapelle treatment had leaked hours before the release.

It wasn't until 2019, that a high quality video with footage from the original shooting leaked, at the time that Britney Spears had been checked into a mental health facility after the cancellation of her Domination residency. David LaChapelle first commented "not my video sorry" when asked on Instagram about the leak, but later he weighed in to explain the original video wasn't released because Britney didn't like it:

The original, racier video has been very divisive among the fans, with some praising it for its controversial nature, while others deeming it too raunchy and vulgar, and unrelated to the meaning of the song (which is a recurrent thing on Britney videos though, including the other David LaChapelle-directed Everytime). Which is true is that the video we got is a very raw and unedited cut, and is not the vision the director had, joining the list of scrapped videos that never were, such as 2013's Perfume.

Not only was the video scrapped, but the entire photoshoot for the album as well. It wasn't until 2020 when we got to see the rest of David LaChapelle's pictures for the Glory re-release(s), including a new cover for the album.

We're not supposed to share the video here, but you all know where to find it.

I don't understand why people are complaining about the video being vulgar if the song is about s€x. :idgi_dont_get_it_how_confused_what_hmm_umm_thinking:

David said that the version her team leaked isn't his final version so who knows what the real finished version looks like. Just like Gimme More, Make Me feels unfinished. Idk if Britney didn't like the whole video or if she just didn't like a segment of it, but she looked hot as fück.

Indeed, it’s unfinished so that explains why the video looks weird, we don’t really understand what’s going on, what is the story, etc.

It’s not really for that we are complaining, I mean, like @Blackout2006 said, Britney did the video in a classy way on Toxic for example, it wasn’t too vulgar compared to Make Me.
On the other hand, MM was a little too much (considering it would be censored on TV which will just reduce the ability to promote the single) especially when we remember what Britney said about the scrapped parts of Work B***h, so that’s why I believe she didn‘t liked a segment of the video or even the whole video. But I agree with you, she looked great in 2016. :cuteidk_britney_excited_laugh_yes_yas_happy_smile:

This whole fiasco was such a mess.

I remember watching the premiere of the randee video with my husband being like
"uhhh.....this isn't right...."
"there was promo of the video and it has nothing to do with this video" and then
"omg exhale is probably having a meltdown right now"

Immediately After I watched the video I went straight to breatheheavy and the site was down. LOL I was like oh my gawwwdddd

I 100% agree. This video has no-sense, is immature, representing Britney in a bad light since the music video pushed the limit of vulgarity. Would have flopped due to broadcasting censoring on TV Channels (I don’t think any TV channel will broadcast this mv in the day while kids may watch it).

Lmao, Britney herself didn’t liked this video, I mean, we are not 100% sure but it’s not surprising if she don’t like it. I guess it’s for the same reason as Work B***h, she is a mother so she had to cut some parts of Work B***h.

I still don’t understand why there’s a huge hype over this music video. Just compare it to BOMT, Sometimes, Crazy, From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart...

These music videos are 100000 times more mature even if Britney was only 16-17, so compared to this Make Me video, it’s just cheap vulgar inappropriate video. :eheeek_britney_unsure_ew_gross_um_awkward_embarrassed_cringe: After, maybe a new final cut may fix the video, but I’m not satisfied with this cut.

Anyway, like it or not, colors, opinions and tastes can’t be discussed. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like this music video that I disrespect people who like it, if you enjoy it then it’s fine. But please, don’t say objectively that’s the best music video of Britney ever (don’t start to tell Make Me is more iconic than Toxic or BOMT).

Thats what! Maybe for some other artist, the Make Me unreleased vid would be fine, but we are talking about the Britney Spears, one of the pop stars with the best videography, this could have been a complete stain on her flawless MV :martini_telling_talking_preaching_couch:
