When Britney Spears unleased ”Gimme More” from her Blackout album, it was obvious that the pop star wasn’t in top mental or physical condition. There was a time when she was dealt with a lot of personal turmoil. This was made extremely clear when she performed the track on the MTV VMA’s and later released the music video. To be honest, to this day we still don’t know what the whole point of the video was. Did Britney just want to pretend to be a stripper? It was never completely clear.
Whatever the intended storyline, it was made known that there were some scenes left out of the clip. Now we’re finally getting to see a little more of what was left on the cutting room floor. An uncensored original version of the video has landed on YouTube. We’ll admit, it still doesn’t make much sense but it’s interesting to see what was left out.
What are the differences? Well, there’s a lot more skin in the unreleased video. Back when it was released, MTV chose to air a censored version. In the uncensored director’s cut, Britney went completely topless. She covered her naughty bits with star-shaped pasties and occasionally holding her vest to her chest to cover up. But we still got the idea. Britney was letting loose and working the pole.
The original video also shows the singer walking down the street dressed in a short black dress, heels and a mini-veil. There’s also a pretty random bedroom scene where she’s singing along to the track, watching TV with a cat.
