Dance, dance and more dance! The Hold It Against Me music video is going to be epic. Choreographer Brian Friedman spills the details to MTV.com.
“I didn’t necessarily have pressure with this – it was more excitement,” he said of working with Britney again. “I haven’t been with Britney in five years on a project, so it was excitement to be back with her. It was excitement to get her dancing really hard again ’cause she’s had a couple of years where she’s been dancing different styles of dance and it hasn’t been me.”
“It’s not necessarily that she hasn’t been dancing, it hasn’t been what I get from her, and what I seem to get from her is this tigress quality,” he continued. “And she prowls. She really dominates when she does my choreography, and that’s what I wanted to get back. Excited yes, scared no.”
The video will feature 10 male dancers.
Brian’s favorite part of the video? He wouldn’t say, except for “I love ******.”
“I can tell you… she’s playing roles in this video. That is what I can give you,” he explained. “In every role, she is dancing. She is going to be dancing throughout the whole video. Like I said: Dance is the focal point of this video.”
He also teased a bit about the costumes: “She’s taking fashion risks. Things we’ve never seen her wear before she’s wearing in this video, and I think it’s just very **** and it’s a little bit playful,” he added.
“She’s going to be doing something in this video that we’ve never seen her do. I’m not gonna tell you what that is but she’s going to be sweating and she’s going to be getting bruised and battered.”
