Britney Spears Is Dancing At The Top Of The World

Today is the second anniversary of the release date of Britney Spears’ Blackout, the pop tartlet’s weird “dark period” album that was chock-full of good dance jams and cameos by the likes of Robyn. I doubt the release of her clip for “3” is explicitly in honor of that milestone, but it does seem like some sort of circle of life has been completed, with the song topping the charts and her once again unafraid to show off her midriff in a (relatively) tasteful manner. The video isn’t all that much, when all’s said and done; it mostly consists of Britney dancing suggestively, if somewhat disinterestedly, with phalanxes of men and women, intercut with her giving the camera the old “over-the-shoulder sultry” look that we’ve all come to know and love. But, you know, given that the song’s already topped the charts, a) did it really need to be anything else, and b) isn’t it nice that she resisted the CGI menace that has befallen so many other pop stars as of late?
