Watch Britney's New 'Circus' Video NOW!

In "Take You Home aka Body," Jay-Z astutely said, "You can't tie a sweater over that ass, or hide it in pajamas." Now, clearly, he was talking about the beautimus bootimus, and while Britney's physique is clearly in the tippity-toppest of finest-ever form, Hov's words are also a metaphor for the untameable beast that her "Circus" video has become.

We were all set to premiere this at 8pm tonight, but whips, shackles, chains, cages nor threat of punishment couldn't keep her latest video at bay, and now there's no holding back.

So, merry early Britmas. Here's "Circus." And Britney, welcome back. Again.
