Yesterday, a judge denied Britney Spears’s request to remove her father from her conservatorship. This was done despite Britney’s earlier heartfelt and shocking testimony about the Hell of not being allowed to control her own life. Despite that setback, Britney’s fight is not over and all of us will continue to support her efforts to win her freedom. Free Britney!
In honor of Britney, today’s music video of the day is one that she had to fight to make. Britney also had to convince Jive Records to allow her to shoot a video for this song, despite the fact that the label had no plans to release it as a single. Britney not only convinced them but she also made her directorial debut here, working with Billie Woodruff. (Woodruff also directed the videos for Born To Make You Happy and Overprotected.) The end result was an iconic video for an iconic song.
