brit brit not copying gaga in hiam video

Looks like Britney' s team wants to make sure we don't think she's copying GaGa.

Here's what Brit Brit's choreographer Brian Friedman had to say about her upcoming Hold it Against Me music video.

"The styling for this video is beyond what Britney has done before. B. Åkerlund did the styling for it, and I can say that it is not 'Britney does Gaga.' That is not what's happening with this. Gaga has her own niche, and although B. has worked with Gaga before, she's not giving Britney anything that Gaga would wear. I love seeing Britney try out new things. It's just an extension of what Britney already is."

That's exactly the kind of thing we like to hear! More from Friedman:

"One of the places that we always tend to improve with Britney is on her beauty shots, when it's just Britney alone dancing, and one of the little tricks that I like to do is stand right off camera and scream words at her to try and get motivation from her and coach her through the little scenario that she's in, so we did that in this video. And I know there was a picture posted of a bunch of microphones around her face, and that's one of the scenes in particular where I was screaming at her on the side — in a good way."

And more:

"When we first started working and I had her back in the studio, I was referring to how she danced when we were working together in the past, when we were doing 'Slave,' 'Toxic,' like some of those things. She used to have a prowl about her and an attack that to me was like a tiger, so I kept telling her, 'I want to see the tiger back.' I scream the word 'tiger,' so 'tiger' seems to work. It makes her laugh, so it works."

All sounds great! We're glad to hear they're making an effort not to infringe upon GaGa territory…especially since Telephone director Jonas Åkerlund is working on the video.

Very excited to see the finished product, Britney! So good to have U back, bb!

    I usually trash Gaga and love Britney, but i think its amazing when other artist have to try real hard in order to not be compared to Gaga.Gaga is definently owning it right now.Also i was super excited for HIAM, but im already getting bored of the song now.Its pretty forgettable, like all her songs have been lately.Anyway i still cannot wait until Britneys album comes out and her video for HIAM.



  5. 5

    WTF!!! NOONE COPIES GAGA SHE IS the one ripping off everyone else then says everyone copies her what a effing joke . choose a side..

  6. Blunt says – reply to this

    Of course she isnt,, britney is a pop star not a media gemick like gaga. Britney,madonna,xtina,gracee jones , michael jackson,david bowie are all original, gaga is a cheap copy of them all. stop it perez



  7. 7

    Finally I can say "Perez,STFU with the Gaga shit!!We get it you are Gaga's bitch,but who let you be in a part of her comeback tour and that was not Gaga"? That's right,it's Britney…bitch!!You are the one of the most pretentious interenet personalities,and I tried to give a few chances of not doubting you on certain topics.I am a Gaga fan,but she really isn't god but maybe to you she is?Also don't worry about Britney copying Gaga.It's Britney's camp that finding the "Brit copying Gaga" quite hilarious if you ask me!!



  8. 8

    Btw i think Gaga copies every other Artist that came before her.Nothing Gaga wears or sings about is original.But she sings live, she writes her own songs,She puts alot of work into her performances. People might not like her singing ,song writing,or performances but atleast she tries,unlike Britney. I love Britney, but Just saying.

    aahahahah at least britney doesnt copy anyone. one thing is paying a tribute like brit ,or xtina do. but gaga is a copycat. if i was madonna i would process her for plagium. like gaultier said gaga studies madonna life like it was a bibble. insane. she copies her clothes,her tours,videos, quotes even interviews poses. madonna is real. gaga is a product.ifd madonna doesnt existed gaga wouldnt exist too. gaga is so lame. at leats brit ,that is a huge madonna fan,keep things real. and she is working with madonna producer william orbit and with jonas akelund and she is worried about gaga??????? ahahah big joke. perez u give gaga too much credit. she cant even sold out her tickets in europe while madonna even after 30 years can and she does huge shows not small ones like gaga

  13. M: says – reply to this


    13

    Re: Blunt – amen 2 u.thats right. even gaga meat dress its a copy from the 80s.she thinkjs she is original just because she wears stupid clothes. that means nothing cause its not her that designs those clothes. and her tour was all stolen from madonnas tour. shes so lame. i wont buy gaga new album for sure

  14. M: says – reply to this


    14

    Re: blahblah12 – no shes not. gaga is not even talked outside usa. she cant even sold out her ticktes.and she alreday lost some of her fans cause she cant even be original. the one that keeps talking about her is perez,shes not madonna dear. even brit still bigger than gaga.gaga is a big fraud



  15. 15

    "Of course she isnt,, britney is a pop star not a media gemick like gaga. Britney,madonna,xtina,gracee jones , michael jackson,david bowie are all original, gaga is a cheap copy of them all. stop it perez "



  16. 16

    You are such a fucking hypocrite, If this were Christina you would be WAITING to call her a copycat.

    Also for someone who consider's GaGa his "wifey" you really haven't gotten much benefits from that relationship eh? Heard born this way yet? Right.

  17. M: says – reply to this


    17

    Re: blahblah12 – dear madonna writes her own songs and she doesnt need to tell it to the worlkd like gaga does. im tired with gaga alreday. shes not original.shes the biggest fraud. the only thing is her voice but it is a present from God so it doesnt depend on her. so it doesnt coiunt for me. u look at gaga and u see a product nothing real about her. she sounds fake, her clothes are ripped off, seriously.the kids are all blind or what???

    did u saw gaga show? 80% of gaga tour was stolen from amdonnas tour. incredible. and perez is a huge fan of madonna i dont know how cant he see. maybe he is using gaga for fame. anyway its sad. hope she disapears soon. at leats brit is real. she does what she wants just liek madonna and she doesnt care. while gaga is so forced. tahts relation she has with her fans its sooo fake. seriously tired of gaga bullshits

  18. M: says – reply to this


    18

    gaga didnt invent anything cause telephone video was directed for jonas akelund who is madonna director. so gaga always copy madonna and u arent worried.u think its cool and now why the hell brit should be worried. gaga is a wannabe. thats what she is.

    Re: douseekamy – he keeps praising gaga cause he wants promotion and she is doing the same cause the day that perez start trashing gaga she will be over



  22. 22

    Re: M: – Madonna is great, i agree, i get it, we all get it !!!.



  23. 23

    I think Perez has toned down with tall the gaga posts lately. All of you need to shut up, if you hate Perez that much then why do you sit here and read his website. It makes no sense, shut up.



  24. 24

    She can't copy a pathetic wannabe, as gaga only copies others, grace jones, madonna, cyndi lauper, shania twain… etc… Britney doesn't really do that, she is good looking, so she works the sexy angle, which works like a charm, clearly. Gaga is done as far as I'm concerned. Oh, and the meat dress, Top Model cycle 7 or 8, I think. I cannot stand Lady Gaga, she's even named after the worst Queen song ever. GET OFF MY GAY DICK, you aren't gay, shut up!

    copying tranny caca? how is that supposed to be possible? wearing a butterface-mask?



  26. 26

    Re: Blunt
    Not really sure what a "gemick" is, but none of those people you listed are that original, especially Britney. Stop your madness.



  27. 27

    Why is everyone getting mad at Perez for posting this? He's only quoting what Britney's own choreographer had to say.



  28. 28

    Re: M:
    "80% of gaga tour was stolen from amdonnas tour."
    Really?? 80 %? Can you back that up, or are you just repeating what you've read on all those Madonna fanboy sites? And how do you steal from a tour?

    Re: Baron87 – ill explain u. gaga scenarium from her tour was copied from madonna tour. the subway on stage was copied. the circle scream copied and many more stuff

    Re: ohthatj – lol u are so right. gaga is the worst wannabe ever. just blind kids could love her and think she is original. one thing is paying tribute like many artists do other think is copy an entire career like agag does. gaga copies madonna,grace jones even called her empty.lol and she is right. gaga is empty she is full of shits. madonna should proccess her for plagium.



  31. 31

    Re: M:
    You didn't explain shit, and that doesn't add up to 80%. Speaking of copying, would you like to know how much Madonna has copied in her career?



  32. 32

    SHUT UP MARIO! BRITTANY IS WAY BETTER THAN GAGA WILL EVER BE!!! FUCK GAGA!!! YOU ARE ONE BIASED ASSHOLE!!



  33. 33

    Re: hellorita24 – YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH!!!



  34. 34

    OMG I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!



  35. 35

    looks like you are up in her ass again Perez…and I though I was beginning to like you. Lets get it straight…GAGA has copies everyone! Not the other way around.



  36. 36

    Uh….Perez as many have noted, LADY CACA has been jocking Madonna's MANY iconic styles SINCE SHE CAME OUT!!!!! Jonas was directing for Madonna as far back as RAY OF LIGHT. RECOGNIZE, you dog faced bitch! Too bad all that weightloss has done NOTHING to make you more attractive, you starfucking retard.



  37. 37

    PEREZ I HATE YOU!

  39. 39

    O M F G with the freakin' copying Gaga crap!! I'm soooo sick of everyone being compared to her. The only thing interesting about this is that Brian F. is trying hard to get the old Britney back, I hope it worked.



  40. 40

    HATERS GONNA HATE ON THE BEST WICH IS GAGA!!!, BRITNEY IS SONG IS A lame



  41. 41

    why would britney want to look like she has deflated boobs in that hideous dress?



  42. 42

    Re: BIGGESTMONSTER – i think there's something wrong with your sentence RETARD!



  43. 43

    Re: M: – Exactly! Gaga is not, and never has been original!



  44. 44

    Britney Spears has been around 10 YEARS LONGER than Lady Gaga! Madonna was around way before the both! Gaga copies EVERYONE and you people say it's original BUT IT'S NOT! Just look at old Madonna videos, look at Grace Jones costumes and see who came up with it first! Perez FUCK YOURSELF! Britney doesn't have to copy! She's been here for over 10 years and counting because whether you and others like it or not she's AMAZING!



  45. 45

    Re: joor – Has gaga ever had a number 1 album in the USA i think not britney has 5! Has gaga ever had a song debut at number 1 on the hot 100 the chart that counts i think not britney has had 4! Gaga does not sing 100% live she is either lip-syncing or singing with a backing track proof on youtube if you need education! Stay pressed "LITTLE MONSTER"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you can keep tannnnnny nanana!!!!!



  46. 46

    mmmh… We'll see if that's the truth…



  47. 47

    so sick of everyone acting like Gaga owns the music industry….especially when she was just famous for only like 3 years…



  48. 48

    this cash-cow puppet cant evet play chopstix on a piano



  49. 49

    Re: robert26101 – First learn to english. Secondly her albums have gone number one all around the world. Also britney only has debuted at number one because she has been around for more than a decade not because of any talent. Also Gaga uses a back track sometimes and during concerts when she is dancing but when she is at her piano every night at her concerts she sings without any back track or anything, just her, her piano, and her band. Also at awards shows she doesn't even use a backtrack. Brit was great back in the day but she is just sad now. Also if brit is so great why did she fall to number 6 in only her second week with no competition? It's because no one other than her stans actually likes her shitty new single.



  50. 50

    watch perez and his fake ass turn on britney now,
    they should have to alter the dancing bc gaga is the one rippin artists off.
    NOBODY COPIES GAGA. NOT XTINA, NOT BEYONCE, NOT BRITNEY!
    What the fuck is wrong w. people?!?!?
    lady gaga isnt the first person to do this shit
    theres people called gracejones, MADONNA!
    who gaga is influenced by, and acts just like her,
    lady gaga is talented yes,
    but she isnt that fucking special for ppl to go copy bc she is RIPPING OFF MADONNA EVERY SINGLE FUCKING DAY!
    my mom doesnt even care about pop culture
    but when she saw lady gaga she thought of madonna right away.
    britney and xtina have been famous SO MUCH LONGER!
    gaga was still in high school when they started out.
    show some damn respect to the women in the business who have been here long before your time.



  51. 51

    Re: jordanjm – Maybe you should take your own advice and learn english. STAY PRESSED "LITTLE MONSTER"



  52. 52

    lol tiger! love britney



  53. 53

    Perez has once again proven how much of a douche bag he really is. An artist would have to be innovative and original, in order to be copied. Lady Gaga is not innovative, nor original. We seriously live in a, ridiculously, intelligent culture, yet also the stupidest. The worst part of it all, is that Gaga takes the credit in stride! She collects it, though undeservingly, and eats it right up. It's unfortunate for other artists, when people like Gaga come around and steal people's interest for a couple of years, with their rather interesting appearance, yet mediocre vocals. She isn't unique at all. She is a format, developed by some people in suits. What always makes me laugh, during interviews and speeches by Gaga, is her upturned nose, everpresent sunglasses worn, and her pompous, self-created accent. She's not a leader, or an artist to be respected. She calls her fans, "Little Monsters," and people don't see the use of the word, "little" as demeaning, or condescending. She elevates herself, while constantly reminding people that they are small creatures. With her upturned nose, sunglasses on, and fake accent, she wants people to think she is one of them. And, I for one, am not buying it.

    Re: iloveaguilera – I'll put this in as few words as possible so you have to come out of dream world to long.GaGa ugly is an amateur compared to Britney.Britney will still be going strong and selling out concerts long after GaGa is forgotten and no longer performing.GaGa's popularity will not last near 10 years like Britneys has.GaGa will never be the Princess are Queen.

    "She elevates herself, while constantly reminding people that they are small creatures. With her upturned nose, sunglasses on, and fake accent, she wants people to think she is one of them. And, I for one, am not buying it."

    you said it. what a pretentious, fake bitch, and i can see the fakeness a mile a way. i tried to like her, but she is straight up FAKE & evil.



  56. 56

    the hilarious part is how someone who looks like shit so much could be pretentious. lmao.

    Re: M: – are you kidding me?? in Europe Gaga is everywhere and also in latinamerica….. so yeah she is big outside the US!! but also she does copies madonna a lot!
