It's Britney Spears' "Criminal" Video

For "Criminal," Britney Spears' fourth single off Femme Fatale, the Weaved One jetted off to London to shoot the bullett-addled music video, which co-stars her real-life boyfriend Jason Trawick. It's a real Natural Born Killers affair, which finds the pair going on a crime spree, doing all kinds of The Sexy (in bed, in a shower, etc.) and, eventually, being hunted down by the police.

"Criminal" is entertaining on a certain level, but not nearly as much as Brit's previous visual, for "I Wanna Go". Still, while many artists in the midst of their world tour who are this deep into an album at this point would be serving up a video with concert footage, thankfully Lady Spears is still giving it 100% on the video front.

And, musically, this flute jam is definitely one of the most interesting and unusual Britney singles to come along in years.

    Her best performance since Crossroads.

    Definitely an interesting song. I do appreciate the effort with the video. And I love the from-the-shoulders-up face dancing!

    Like the song but I don't think it will go far. It's #103 on iTunes right now.

    this video might be worth watching on mute. Her voice still sounds amazingly shit - and yet, people buy her music. I am always amazed at that.
