Pop superstar Britney Spears has been shooting her latest video for “Criminal” in London’s Hackney borough. Britney has come under fire for brandishing a replica handgun in several scenes however.The issue stems from the August riots in Hackney. Local residents and politicians are upset over Britney’s direction for the video. Namely the scenes that include the gun.
Britney’s reps released the following statement,
“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.”
Why can’t we just let Brit Brit be great.
