Earlier this month, we were swooning all over the place about Britney Spears and her big 30th birthday. We even held a weeks-long March Madness-style tournament to find out which of her thirty-plus videos was the fan favorite. Ultimately, after nearly a million votes were cast (thanks again, y'all!) the winner was "I'm A Slave 4 U."
So that's settled.
What's not settled is which of her fantastic videos from just this year is your favorite. We decided to dedicate this week to finding out which 2011 videos by MTV Newsroom blog favorite artists were tops. So far we've opened up polling for Katy Perry and Taylor Swift (don't forget to vote! We'll let you know all of the results on Monday!). Now, it's B's turn.
Britney had a big year in 2011. She had yet another No. 1 record, Femme Fatale, which is arguably her best album to date. Fatale has yielded more top ten hits than any album in Spears' 12-year career. (Isn't that kind of an incredible fact, considering she's one of the most successful female artists ever?) She also hit the road for a massive world tour that took her across North America, Europe and South America, and scored a Video Music Award for Best Pop Video. And she should have been nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Recording for "Till The World Ends" … but what are you gonna do?
Spears released four videos this year for the Femme Fatale singles "Hold It Against Me," "Till The World Ends," "I Wanna Go" and "Criminal." Which was the best of the best? Check 'em out ("Hold It Against Me" is above, the rest are after the jump) and vote in our poll below.
"Till the World Ends"
"I Wanna Go"
