Britney Spears knows how to dance 4 U.
The pop princess’ moves in her “Hold It Against Me” video were all her own, Spears’ rep said Wednesday in response to a report that a body double handled the choreography for her.
“The accusations could not be further from the truth. Britney worked extremely hard on this video and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shooting,” the rep said. “Fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video.”
The video’s director, Jonas Akerland—the one who was supposedly dissatisfied with Spears’ dancing—also refuted the body-double claim.
“She’s been great throughout the entire process,” he said in a statement to TMZ. “At the end of the shoot, I got the warmest hug I ever got from an artist, and I look forward to hugging her again very soon! I’ve been around long enough to know when an artist gives it their all, and to me it doesn’t get better than this.
“This video is gonna be f–king awesome. It’s all Britney,” he added.
Spears herself tweeted Jan. 17: “Dance, dance, and more dance. Getting ready to shoot the video for HIAM this week with Jonas Akerlund. Super excited! – Brit”
The story hasn’t made BritneySpears.com’s BS Alert page yet, but… she’s been busy.
She revealed earlier today that her upcoming album, her seventh studio release, will be called Femme Fatale, and it’s expected out sometime in March.
