Britney Spears is bruised and battered in "Hold It Against Me" video
Britney Spears is unleashing the animal inside in her upcoming music video for "Hold It Against Me."
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund (creator of Lady Gaga's "Telephone"), the music video -- which was shot over two days last week in L.A. -- was choreographed by The X Factor (UK) dance guru Brian Friedman.
Friedman told MTV that fans should expect to see Britney in top form.
“It was excitement to get her dancing really hard again... What I seem to get from her is this tigress quality. And she prowls," he said.
"She really dominates when she does my choreography, and that's what I wanted to get back."
He said the clip would show a whole new side to the pop star. “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 sexy 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.”
