  1. On April 10, 2000, Britney Spears released the Oops!... I Did It Again music video, the lead single off her second studio album of the same name. Wearing the instantly classic red catsuit, the music video went on to become one of the most iconic music videos of her career, and pop culture in general, with a space theme that jumped on the futuristic trend of the beginning of the millennium and a distinctive choreography that made all the viewers try to dance along to the song. Oops!... I Did It Again was directed by Nigel ****, who had already worked on her first three music videos: ...Baby One More Time, Sometimes and (You Drive Me) Crazy. It was filmed in March in Universal City, California. It was a success around the world, becoming a staple on MTV's TRL countdown and in Latin America, on MTV's Los 10 + Pedidos, where it was also voted as the #1 video of the year 2000, as well the overall #1 at the 2000's decade Top 100 countdown that took place in 2009. The video starts with an astronaut walking on Mars as the scientists back on the Earth station are communicating with him. He finds a picture of Britney buried in the ground, and suddenly a whole city emerges surprising the astronaut. Britney makes her entrance descending from a platform wearing the red catsuit, and starts singing the song, including the choreography during the chorus. She eventually suspends the guy in mid-air and we now see her lying barefoot on a white pad, wearing a white crop-top and skirt. For the breakdown of the song, Britney flips in the air to land where the astronaut is and he gives her a jewel as a symbol of his love, as they say the spoken interlude that references the Titanic necklace while the people on the Earth station watch the scene. She takes it and walks away, and the astronaut leaves defeated. Britney continues to perform the song until the end. You can find the transcript of the video treatment here. Despite the obvious hint at Britney "not being that innocent" that we get in the song's chorus, Nigel recalls that the video wasn't strategized as such in an interview he gave to MTV for the 20th anniversary of the clip: In an interview Britney had during a showcase in Japan, she was asked about how she came up with the concept of the video: "Actually, I love the whole futuristic thing with me going to Mars and everything, and it's never been done before! And no one's been ever dancing on Mars, so that's what made me come up with the idea. [...] Because the song has so much energy, I definitely had to incorporate my dancing, of course". The MTV crew was at the videoshoot filming an episode of Making the Video. In it, Britney talks about the meaning of the song: "The song is basically about a girl. All these guys fall in love with her, and she just can't help it. When I meet a guy that I'm seriously attracted to, I get butterflies in my stomach, I get a total brain fart, and I don't know what to say." (16 years later though, she'd forget about all that and say "I think it's just a song " ) "This is Mars. You own Mars, you are the Queen of Mars. This is your city and these are your subjects. You're here to dazzle them." Nigel would tell Britney while directing her in the filming of the video. The now iconic red catsuit was a last minute decision. It turns out that the day before the shoot, Britney called Michael Bush, a designer who had worked for Michael Jackson in the 80's and 90's, and told him she wanted a different suit. Nigel says: For its 20th anniversary, Britney remembered the outfit being "freaking hot" though the dancing being fun made the shoot fly by. The red suit has become one of the most representative of Britney, being worn by fans and included in many different media. In 2016, Kevin Bacon wore a similar outfit for an Apple ad, were Britney also made a cameo, and in 2020, Mexican singer Thalia also paid tribute to the look in a Tik Tok video she did during the shoot of her Ten Cuidao music video. Funko has also announced a Pop! Rocks series figurine inspired on the Oops outfit, set to be released later this year. The red catsuit was also on display at Planet Hollywood during her Las Vegas residency from 2013 to 2017. In the various interviews Nigel has done, he also talks about one of the other outfits, the white one, and how that was a decision made on set too. Britney had chosen a more revealing outfit to wear, but Nigel told her to go back to the trailer and find something different, which apparently Britney didn't like a lot: He talked a bit further for the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast: MTV News pointed out at the various men that we see in the Oops!... I Did It Again video: "The video featured a gaggle of buff, shirtless guys operating mysterious levers in the background of Brit's lair — in one cute scene from Making the Video, the pop star giggles, 'I don't know their names but they're hotties! I don't mind looking at them!' " Another man, the protagonist of the space romance, Eli Swanson, was the actor who played the astronaut that tried to conquer Britney's heart, after his head almost exploded when losing his helmet, only to be rejected by the ruler of Mars. He then goes back home, not before doing the moonwalk (or Marswalk?). Britney met him on set after Nigel selected him to portray the character. Swanson used to be a model for Ralph Lauren, Nike and Adidas, but eventually quit the business to become an orthopedic surgeon. Apparently he changed so much, that Britney didn't recognize him during a 2013 Superfan Showdown on ET. Speaking of which, the spoken interlude scene (which is not voiced by him) that's the peak of Eli's acting career, didn't make a lot of sense for the director of the video. However, the man the stole the video according to Nigel, was the one at the control booth back on Earth: Without a doubt, a main component of the videoclip is its dance moves. It was choreographed by Tina Landon, and it includes the classic "heart move" that everyone remembers. Not too long after the video was out, her fans already had memorized the steps, and Britney even danced along with one lucky fan during an MTV special. Tina also released a video where she teaches the choreography for the chorus of the song. Perhaps Britney could watch it again, who in 2013 said she had forgotten about it in a Good Morning America interview after her Desert Performance Las Vegas residency announcement. Another well known incident during the filming of the video, was a head injury Britney had while doing the scene where she's lying on the ground and a part of the camera fell off, landing on her head. At the time, Lynne Spears, Britney's mom, wrote on her website that Britney began bleeding and they had to call a doctor that put her stitches. After four hours of rest, she was ready to go back to shoot the rest of the video. But Lynne says that after the videoshoot wrapped up, she flew to Michigan where she slept for 17 hours, before performing there the next day. Lynne said: Nigel **** clarified the situation for MTV: Britney herself also talked about it in 2012, calling it a very bizarre experience: In 2012 there was also a Twitter exchange between Britney and the NASA: Which was continued in 2020 Nigel really praises Britney's professionalism, recalling the amount of effort they all put on rehearsals, as well as the stunt she had to film with a harness, in front of the green screen: However, he's also mentioned how much things have changed from the first video he did for her, to the time they did Oops!... I Did It Again, and how she was surrounded already by this huge fame machine The video received four VMA's nominations in 2000: Best Female Video, Best Dance Video, Best Pop Video, and the Viewer's Choice, but it didn't win any of them. In June 2016, the video surpassed the 100M views mark on her official YouTube channel, becoming the 11th video of hers to do so. However, in recent years, it got a rapid increase in views, currently being the fifth most watched video on her channel, with over 300M views. Alternative footage of the video was released on her Greatest Hits: My Prerogative DVD in 2004: Related:
  2. IDK it's a random thought. Maybe/probably it's even been said before? I think whatever Project Red is is NOT related to her music career, I think it's about her life - she's obviously been massively stepping up with major changes she's had Ingham requesting... And a lot of her Janet references, with those song lyrics... Just seem it's all about her gaining her independence and life back. And also the color RED was used in the Domination poster and marketing... her actually coming back to dominate
  3. OK, this is my first major topic to open a thread with, it's major LONG and I just know I'm going to get crucified by some of ya'll so just play nice please I've been avidly checking dates, comparing quotes, captions, pics, outfits, dissecting the evidence and reading the Queen's eyelashes now for months to try and decipher if it's really Britney behind the posts and I personally believe that Britney regained at least autonomy over her pics/videos/captions even if she doesn't post them 'live' herself. Buckle in BH, here's the my take: I believe Britney gained a level of autonomy on her social media around late 2018/early 2019. Sometime in the Domination rehersals and around the time of this post something changed: This is around the time she was actively rebelling against Jamie - going out driving, disappearing with Sam, stopping her meds, etc. etc. I believe she potentially managed to eventually get almost full control (besides advertising posts) following her stay in the wellness centre, possibly as a deal between her and Jamie that if she went along with the 'all is well' post to take the heat off that she could have majority say on her content, provided she produced enough content regularly and her social media team controlled when the posts go out. Perhaps, this is the time Sam Ingram did a glorious u-turn and perhaps he managed to leverage control over Instagram as one of the the 'adjustments' that have been already made that to her freedom that we haven't had detail on yet. Posting the video from the clinic defending her family and saying Sam Lufti faked her emails would have given her huge leverage after all. And from this point on we get full on quirky Brit, rebellion Brit and trolling Brit, lengthy, cryptic captions AND if you take a look you will see that 'Touch Of Rose and RED actually begin to sneak in around this time too. The Multiple Repeat Posts What better way to rebel against Lou and Jamie by just filming a LOAD of selfies, walking videos, setups etc on just a few days to keep reusing to meet her content quota. Homegirl would know how much this would grate James as he tries to continue working her like a cash mule - repeat posts of a make-up less Britney looking sad and expressionless in non big label outfits (note that the peasant tops are NOT what she chooses to wear when on vocation or when outdoors with Sam). She even posted a video mentioning wishing she 'had wardrobe full of designer clothes... just IMAGINE' which is so heavily laced with direct sarcasm towards those who forced her to parade in runway show posts wearing expensive dresses for so long. She even posts a video showing us the actual wardrobe of designer clothes she has, yet suddenly she's wearing basic fashion - either they took all of her clothes away and replaced with what she has now (makes no sense to a team pushing her to be cool and relevant) or she's actively choosing not to wear them and along with her remarks about her flip flips, heels, make-up, hair, the 'immaculate threading' on the Mommy floral dress...Britney having never owned a white swim suit before so wears her 'Grandmas' old one when we've seen her in designer white swim suits multiple times. She's making a point to team CON that she's no longer going to be their doll to dress up and flaunt for money for themselves. Which leads me to... Her outfits/overall appearance/image: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CESyJMvgL5F/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Could the online auction of outfits recently have been Britney herself? Or perhaps Lynne? They would need to raise money to pay Sam Ingram since Jamie stopped- plus I'd imagine to have funds she can access to buy herself things she wouldn't normally be able/allowed to - the yellow dress from Bloomingdales, junk food and chocolate. All of those posts have undertones of being things she hasn't been able to do in a long time, probably rejecting efforts from Jamie to force a strict diet on her ever since he took over her life. She's said in many posts she used to hate sitting in hair and makeup for hours for shows and is letting herself FREE with no ****s to give what she looks like. Dancing barefoot, in gym clothes and not made-up to her choice of music and improvised is literally polar opposite of what she had to do when she was actively working for Jamie (hence the need to destroy her hair do night after night in Vegas). She's pointedly remarked about her lack of make-up lately too and that she doesn't have to bother to make him happy; real fans shouldn't care what she looks like at home - being Jamie's slave would mean immaculate hair and make-up, amazing clothes, collaborations with brands and maintaining a 'cool' persona to appeal to a young demographic. She always now posts unedited versions of her photos as a direct response to people saying she's been photoshopped. I've also lost count of the number of posts, random pics where she and/or Sam says something is cool in a very mocking tone when it clearly isn't what generally be considered as 'hip or cool' which suggests to me she doesn't care about impressing to get followers. She knows that her posts being repeated, her dancing erratically and generally her just being Britney will get attention from her followers - this is not Team CON trying to make her look crazy! Why would they do that? That would show that they have failed to protect her and would severely hinder the commercial potential of her brand as she would be considered as 'risky business' - You think James and Lou are really going to intentionally harm their 'investments' potential return by making her come across as too unstable to work? The fact James keeps claiming this is simply a lie to maintain power - so Britney is hamming it up to the max because the more oddly she behaves the more attention is given to her posts, comments and Free Britney movement as a whole. No to mention that EVERY single music track she chooses to put on her videos has strong freedom/breaking free/being controlled/anti-conservatorship vibes. Hey Lou , let's post a fathers day instagram but not mention her me AT ALL despite Lynne getting the full on daughter love on Mother's Day?? Nah. It just doesn't make 'hybrid business model' sense, now does it? Speaking of getting more ATTENTION... ROSE/RED PROJECTS 'Just a Touch of Rose' seems to be the series of garden or studio backdrop shots, primarily of her staring expressionless at the camera as she walks back and forth towards it with a deep gaze. As she has told us many times 'the eyes are the window to the soul' and in these photos there is a palatable sense of sadness and of someone reaching out in desperate hope for something. She stares at us... 'rooting for the world' (ie. her fans helping her), asking us to look at the little differences, details in the small things in these shots, presenting herself with a crown of roses popular amongst Goddess and Nymph mythology that she frequently references. Only when she was awarded her right to her own counsel the other day did she present 'Rose' with a beaming smile to end the project and instantly moving on to 'RED' featuring more shots of her from the Summer. 'RED' symbolises danger, blood shed, a warning sign and draws attention. Here she portrays herself more confidently and with a harder gaze - as though she is setting her sights on her prey and sending out the signal to run and hide. I think we will see more similar/same shots from a couple of months ago as we build towards the next major point in the court battle (after all it IS still Summer! ). I'm not going to get into hype around RED being a secret album, but let's just say there's a high number of coincidences between Britney and Danja's posts and timings of certain posts. There's also some interesting song titles registered if you have a look for them under the name 'DANJA DANJA'. I'm remaining open minded and optimistic on that front. I could get into Sam, the Lioness imagery, quotes and a lot more coincidental stuff but my brain is too fried from trying to piece all the puzzle at the minute. Please don't attack me for my personal views, I just happen to think Britney is super smart (as she's proven so often in the past) and knows what she'd doing. She'd told us she needs our help (hello Yellow top - her new favourite colour!), but I don't think we should take it in the literal sense of 'help I'm held prisoner and beaten if I don't dance for you, more that she needs us to SHARE her story and continue to put pressure on Team CON. GOD BLESS YOU ALL! PS. One finally thing... the wristband conspiracy. None of you remember this? Related:
