Question about "Not a Girl" music video


Recommended Posts

I was just re-watching all of Britney's music videos, and am at "Not a girl" rn, so I just had a thought.

Did they shoot at the Grand Canyon because in some way it relates to Crossroads, like how they did a road trip? Cause I can easily imagine people stopping there while on a road trip (I'm not from the US btw). I know she sang it in the movie too.

Forgive me if this was supposed to be obvious, I am quite a late fan.

It’s not the Grand Canyon. It’s near lake Powell in utah/Arizona. But yes they shot there to tie in the crossroads road trip.

i thought it is the Gran Canyon? i always wondered whether she actually climbed on that cliff and sat/stood there of if they used CGI?

It definitely was supposed to coincide with Crossroads the movie as I think Jive has a stake in the movie so of course they would want to promote it. Why do I hear Larry’s voice saying all this? It’s definitely something he would pitch to kill two birds with one stone as he’s done the past decade.

Genuine question: was Larry even her primary manager at this point? I thought he came into that around 2003. Johnny Wright was her main manager for the first few years no?

i would love if Britney sings this song on the desert again would be so cool

yall knows that billie was inspired by that

 

this video is so 'Britney" era, her jeans and boots and the way she sits is very like the 'Britney" cover, the snake from 2001 VMAs, the coloraturas of her hair, the desert from not a girl

oh really i always thought ILRNR and Not a girl were both sort of soundtracks for the movie

Yeah I love rock and roll, not a girl, not yet a women, overprotected, and bombastic love were recorded for the movie.

I really don't know why it was changed.
