Britney Spears unveils red bodysuit, video for 'Till the World Ends' [Video]
Everyone's welcoming Britney Spears back home to the pop charts (and the bleeding edge of the avant-garde!) after a bit of a career deathwatch. And the video for "Till The World Ends" revels in a similar survivalist-chic.
Here, our damsel of distress digs out a red bodysuit (harking back to her "Oops! ... I Did It Again" video) in an underground lair that, as befits the end of days, is full of sexy people wearing tattered nothings and grinding around to a dubstep synth wobble and neck-snapping vocal samples while the Earth burns. Britney even dances again! Or is edited to appear to be doing so (which is still OK). And when she pokes her leonine tresses out of a manhole cover to survey the damaged scenery in the clarifying sunlight, we're happy to oblige her the metaphor.
