Britney Spears’ fans launch petition for original ‘Make Me…’ video to be released

The video was reportedly scrapped for being "too sexy"

Britney Spears‘ fans have launched a petition to get the original version of the ‘Make Me…’ video released.

Initially, the pop star hired David LaChapelle to direct the clip, but later remade it with Randee St. Nicholas.

According to TMZ it was scrapped for being “too sexy”, however Spears’ team deny this. Instead, they say “it was utterly disjointed… pointless with no storyline.”

Now, fans are demanding the original be released via a petition, as Stereogum reports. Nearly 10,000 fans have signed it at the time of writing.

“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,” reads the petition.

“(Yes, we know there was a video shot by David LaChapelle before this one, parts of it have already leaked). We ask that RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment release the original video that was filmed by David LaChapelle for the song.”

Earlier this week, Spears announced her ninth album ‘Glory’. The record will be released on August 26.
