Is Britney Spears' "Make Me" music video the new "Rebellion?"
On the outside, it appears the promotional strategy surrounding Brit's lead B9 single is aimless.
Brit was reportedly planning on premiering the song during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards in May, but supposed production issues caused a delay. She also shot a music video for the song with director David LaChapelle, and though much of the video has leaked onto the web – there's no signs it'll premiere any time soon.
The only mention Britney's made of it since posting a couple of on-set photos from the shoot was during her Tumblr Q&A where she described the video with the words "female empowerment" and "Lol."
Ahead of her sesh with the Britney Army, there was serious chatter the entire video was getting scrapped because Britney may have had second thoughts about the vid – perhaps she felt it was too sexy. One original scene shows Britney lying down and thrusting her hips into the air, another she's seen in a glittery red body suit painted onto her naked body while she sings in a cage, and another clip shows her and the song's collaborator G-Eazy having sex.
Now the latest round of gossip claims LaChapelle wants his name pulled from the project and it could be scrapped entirely.
However, some refute that, claiming RCA has plans to premiere the video in August.
