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 other, more conservative viewers, 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. *in before Jordan removes the original video images 🥲* Related:
On September 28, 2016, Britney Spears was interviewed at The Jonathan Ross show, and she also performed Make Me..., the lead single off Glory. The show didn't air until October 1st, though. In the interview she talked about her love for rice, dating lizard people, admitted to farting onstage and also played some games, including singing Shake It Off after inhaling helium from a ballon. Most noteworthy, people who attended the filming of the episode revealed she also talked about drug use and the party scene in Vegas, but most importantly, that she allegedly talked about her conservatorship and the restrictions it has when it comes to recording her music. Such declarations were cut from the show when it aired on October 1st.
