  1. On October 17, 2011, Britney Spears released the Criminal music video, the last single off Femme Fatale. It was directed by Chris Mars Piliero, who had previously directed I Wanna Go. The video was shot in the streets of London, right before she started the European leg of her Femme Fatale Tour. She said in an interview for AOL "I've never shot on location out of the country of America for a video. So, it should be very interesting. It was partly my idea ... to see if it could to happen, and they were like, 'Yeah, it's a great idea,' so we did it." A few days before the production began, the details of the video leaked, as wells as the people they were casting for a role in the video which included "hot girls" for the fiance to be with at the party, a "chubby grocery store clerk", "male cop", "Chief of police" and a Britney body double. Jason Trawick, Britney's boyfriend at the time, was also in the video. According to Chris Mars, casting Jason for the video was Britney's idea, and he also revealed that he was hesitant about it, since he considered that a real actor would do a better job. He told USA Today: "When you're doing nudity, I don't think it was at the top of Britney's list to bring in some random guy while her boyfriend watches. [...] We definitely wanted to make some passionate, steamy scenes, but we also wanted it to be intensely beautiful. We didn't want to go for raunchy. We wanted it to be sensual and steamy." After images of Britney holding a gun replica during the filming of the video surfaced, a lot of controversy sparked in London for "promoting gun violence" after the riots that had occurred in England earlier that year. They wanted Britney to apologize for the video, but instead her team released a statement saying that "the video is a fantasy story featuring Britney's boyfriend, Jason Trawick, which literally plays out the lyrics of a song written three years before the riots ever happened." Chris Mars commented about the controversy "Holding the gun became a controversial thing 'cause we filmed it in London, and they don't have a lot of gun use out there. That doesn't mean that there's no gun use, so I did find it really interesting. For me, the thing is, it blew me away that members of [the British] Parliament were speaking about this. One, because it's a music video, and two, because don't you guys have television shows out there that show crime? It's really strange to me. I don't understand why pop stars are put on such a high pedestal over other celebrities. Why do members of Parliament feel that they need to scrutinize her for having a gun, and 'She's in the public,' and 'She should know better,' and 'She's a role model,' but what about every other celebrity out there? What about every other actor? That's very strange to me. I was really surprised at how much the gun use was scrutinized. Jason plays a professional criminal, so it makes sense he has a gun. We shouldn't censor ourselves." The video received mostly positive reviews, some finding the scenes of physical abuse surprising and her acting a bit stiff, but she also received comments such as "We can't honestly remember the last time Britney Spears looked so gorgeous in a music video" and deemed it as the best video from Femme Fatale." Upon its release, the video was flagged on YouTube, and only registered people above 18 years old were able to watch it. This hugely affected its performance in views compared to the previous Femme Fatale videos, which had been rapidly become the most watched videos on her channel. It wasn't until 2013 that the flag was removed, and it started to slowly get more and more views. Around 2016, it gained more popularity as a lot of fanfic videos of Harley Quinn and the Joker from the film Suicide Squad featured the song, and in recent years it went viral again due to a Tik Tok challenge. The video hit 100 million views in March 2019.
  2. On August 28, 2011 the VMA's were held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Britney Spears received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for her influence and impact in music. The award was presented by Lady Gaga in her character of Jo Calderone, giving an introductory speech which was followed by a medley performance by a group of girl dancers, featuring Britney's most iconic outfits throughout her music video career. Britney and Gaga had a moment of silence onstage, where they exchanged looks while making the audience believe they were gonna kiss (as a reference to Britney and Madonna's kiss in 2003) only for Britney to interrupt saying she "had done that already" Together they proceeded to introduce Beyoncé's performance That night, Britney also won Best Pop Video for Till the World Ends The same video was also nominated for Best Choreography, but lost to Beyoncé's Run the World (Girls).
  3. On May 22, 2011, Britney Spears was featured as a guest performance of both Rihanna's and Nicki Minaj's performances at the Billboard Music Awards. With Rihanna she performed S&M. The previous month, a remix of her single S&M had been released, and it featured Britney. Later that year, Britney would include the song on her Femme Fatale Tour in a medley with her classic hit ...Baby One More Time. After Nicki Minaj finished her performance of Super Bass, she started rapping her part from the Till the World Ends (Femme Fatale Remix) released on April 22, which also featured Ke$ha. Britney joined her onstage to perform a shortened version of her song.
  4. Don't get the hatred for this song. It's fun, different, and very Britney-esqe. And her and her team got Travis Barker (Blink 182), a rock band, on board to record a song for a authentic pop Megastar. I absolutely love this song!
  5. I forgot about this video but it's still hilarious
  6. Hi y'all im just looking for the official intro video montage to this performance i think its so good i would love to see the real version of it!
