MTV.com thinks it's a good idea if Britney re-created Michael Jackson's Thriller music video for the following reasons:
The thought's coming from the right place, but I thinks real fans would agree this is a bigquote:
1. The "Overprotected" singer is no stranger to the choreographed stylings of both Michael and Janet Jackson. She's adapted elements of both performers into her many videos -- and we think she'd do well to take a more literal stance on their inspiration in the form of a freaking awesome rendition of "Thriller" 2.0.
2. Britney's no stranger to remakes. She reminded the public at large about the meaning of the word "prerogative" when she sang her version of the famed Bobby Brown song. And she's redone "Satisfaction."
3. We know Britney can rock red leather like no one else can--recall, as you surely can, the "Oops I Did It Again" video. Britney Spears was truly a Nostradamus of style--she predicted the return of jumpsuits a full decade early!
4. Instead of zombies, Britney can opt for a very modern and feminine ghoul of choice--a glampire! Some fangs, a Cullen-worthy pallor, scary-chic makeup, and the look is complete.
If Britney were to cover any song for the new album, I'm thinkin' a classic Bob Dylan or Beatles tune. Or play it safe and re-create a Madonna hit. Anything but MJ!
