I’ve never been the world’s biggest Britney Spears fan, but I have this desire to hear her new album, Circus (which should not be confused with my desire to spend money on it, something I don’t have). Maybe it’s the fact that Britney’s bounced back after her hellacious year and looks better than ever on the cover (how shallow). Maybe it’s that tons of people whose opinions I respect have given the album good reviews (including one review you’ll find later this week). Perhaps it’s the fact that the two songs I’ve heard so far have been not-awful-Womanizer has actually grown on me a little bit. Whichever way, I’m gonna try to get my grubby little mitts on a copy if I can find it for cheap (or free).

Which brings us to the point of this whole post-Miss Spears’ brand new video. It’s for the title track of Circus, and it’s certainly a feast for the eyes. There’s a lot going on, and thankfully Britney actually goes with a circus theme here. It’s certainly worth checking out for the production values, even if you don’t particularly care for the song itself.
