Editor's video pick: feat. Britney Spears "Scream and Shout"

Britney Steals
the Spotlight

Oh baby, baby. Britney never really left, but she's back in a whole new way.

Britney Steals  the Spotlight

I figure it must get tiring.

What, you ask? Oh, you know — world domination.

You have, the genius behind the Black Eyed Peas, insane collaborations and abstract thinking.

Then there is Britney Spears, who is like pop's version of Beyonce. Whoa, before I get a lot of flak for making that comparison, I don't mean vocally or physically. I mean in terms of universal appeal.

Britney first popped on the scene with her sugar-sweet image with "Baby One More Time," melted us and then revitalized us with her sexier albums, then disappeared for a while (I say disappear, you say breakdown, whatever.) and makes a comeback stronger than anyone I have ever heard of. Even though she's been riddled with scandals, strife and struggle, she manages to still (fake) a smile and dominate. The X Factor saw her worth, and so do we.

Let's get to the important stuff

This video is futuristic freaktastic. Reminiscent of Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson's "Scream," I found it to be a sexier form. Obviously, it would be incest if MJ and JJ tried to do that...

This trippy video features a fit Britney, who may look a little tired in the face, but young in the waist! She rocks seductive black attire, baring her midriff through most of it. Her stylist did a notably good job of accentuating her banging bod. ABC News discovered this is due to her 30-minute daily workouts and a sugar-free diet. Her looks were circa "Stronger" days.

Even though I hate to say it, musically is always strong, but Britney definitely outshined him in the cinematic way. He doesn't have quite the same visual appeal as she does, and perhaps I was more intrigued to see if she succeeded/failed at dancing. Thanks to many, and I mean many, technical illusions, the "dancing" was more like swaying and popping. It was spectacular as they really milked the mirror effect.

The artistically captivating video featured a lot of abstract references that probably have some deeper meanings, but I was way too enamored by how effortlessly Britney seems to be transcending the years.
