Britney Spears “Womanizer” video

Posted October 14th, 2008 by eric

Watching the whole Britney Spears debacle unfold over the past few years has been a desensitizing train wreck. I get angry at myself when I pay attention to it, but I can’t help it. Because of her, people actually expect celebrities to be bat shit crazy and utterly incapable of functioning in society. Britney Spears makes fame look like a disease you don’t ever want to catch, which makes her new video all the more strangely infectious. She kind of looks like she got her shit together. She certainly got her figure together. It’s hard to speak to her sanity from a video, but she doesn’t seem to have that crazy look in her eyes anymore. I don’t know who produced the song, but it’s typically artificial, overrun with auto-tune and schlocky beats, but, I must say, there’s something intriguing if even catchy about it. I’m not sure if it’s the song, her cheeky flirtatiousness in the video, or the fact that she’s not shaving her head with four cigarettes in her mouth while dangling a baby out of her car that forces me to continue to pay attention. Ugh.
