Britney Spears, Jason Trawick get 'Criminal'

After a few teases and a handful of controversy, Britney Spears has tweeted a link to the video for her single "Criminal."

Some in the U.K. were not pleased with her wielding a firearm, but there are more fiery things happening in the clip. After a brief acting interlude (why, yes, Britney, we DO remember "Crossroads"!) and a perfume promo, her real-life man Jason Trawick saves Spears from her awful significant other, and Spears runs off with the criminally-minded Clyde to her Bonnie.

As she croons "Mama I'm in love with a criminal," we see Spears brandish her weapon in a robbery and then find herself in a shower with Trawick. Till the cops come knocking, indeed.

Have you seen the video? What'd you think?

    I love this music video! I find it strangely sweet. It's a great song and it's the first time since Circus that I feel Britney is truly back. It really is amazing and a testament to her that she's managed to relevant for thirteen years. X-factor indeed!

    It's still a Britney video; still makes use of Auto-Tune; still a fluffy pop tune. FAIL.

    Look.. you can't stop the machine that is Britney Spears. She has a rabid fan base like no other that will tell you she can do no worng.. that being said, this video is hawwwt, the song is catchy and I don't think any pop fan (pro brit or not) can deny it. Kudos Ms. Spears.

    I was never really a fan, but cheers to Brit for managing to stay relevant for what seems like at least a decade.

    Didn't Rihanna do the same thing in her "man down" video where she kills her rapist?? All these "artist" do is copy each others work to get one up on the other.
