Remember Britney’s “Gimme More” music video? It was pretty disappointing, but it was directly after her breakdown, and people were just glad to see her making a video.
Well, luckily she didn’t release the first version of that video, because it was even worse than the one we’ve seen and had to grow to love.
Check out the video she released, followed by the original cut:
Of course the biggest differences are the beginning and end scenes, and the fact that we’re seeing a lot more of her skin and “stripper past,” but MTV goes into it a little deeper, if you want to evaluate!
Thank goodness SOMEONE was making semi-good decisions over there at that point.
