Britney Spears: Make Me music video sparks fan petition for original cut
While Britney fans rejoiced after the pop diva dropped the video for “Make Me,” others petitioned RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment to release “the original music video” to the public.
You might be asking yourself, “What original music video?” The petition on Change.org points to “a video shot by David LaChapelle.” Back in June, E! Online published a behind-the-scenes peak at the shoot, revealing LaChapelle as its director. Shortly after, Spears posted a photo on “Day 1” of production on Instagram of her hunky male extras.
When the “Make Me” video was officially released this week, fans noted that videographer Randee St. Nicholas was listed as its director and neither the outfit Spears wore for E!‘s preview nor the image revealed on Instagram were in the cut.
“Since the music video for Britney Spears’ lead single, ‘Make Me…’ to her new album Glory has been released, we Britney fans find that the music video is not a suitable representation of the song and we are calling for the original video to be released,” the petition reads in part. “We ask that RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment release the original video that was filmed by David LaChapelle for the song.”
As of this article’s publication, the petition had just over 10,000 supporters.
