VIDEO: Britney Spears – “Criminal”

Share This Post

Criminal” is the fourth official music video and single from American pop singer Britney Spears‘ seventh studio album, Femme Fatale.

The music video premiered in mid October 2011 on Britney Spears’ official YouTube VEVO channel.

“Criminal” was written by Max MartinShellback and Tiffany Amber, while being produced by Martin and Shellback.

The accompanying music video for the song was filmed in Stoke Newington, London. It features Spears as a woman in upper society and follows her relationship with a criminal, played by her real-life boyfriend Jason Trawick.

Prior to its release, London officials criticized Spears for shooting scenes with a replica gun, after the area had been badly affected during the 2011 England riots.

The video received positive reviews from critics, who noted the influence of films by Alfred Hitchcock and Guy Ritchie and deemed it as the best video from Femme Fatale.

Lyrics for Britney Spears – Criminal

[Britney Spears – Verse 1:]
He is a hustler
He’s no good at all
He is a loser, he’s a bum, bum, bum, bum
He lies, he bluffs
He’s unreliable.
He is a sucker with a gun, gun, gun, gun

I know you told me
I should stay away.
I know you said
He’s just a dog astray.
He is a rebel with a tainted heart
And even I know this a’int smart

[Chorus:]
But mama I’m in love with a criminal
And this type of love
Isn’t rational, it’s physical
Mama please don’t cry
I will be alright
All reasons inside
I just cant deny
Love the guy

[Britney Spears – Verse 2:]
He is a villain of the devil’s law
He is a killer just for fun, fun, fun, fun
That man’s a snitch and unpredictable,
He’s got no conscious
He got none, none, none, none

All I know, should let go, but no
’cause he’s a rebel with a tainted heart
And even I know this ain’t smart

[Chorus:]
But mama I’m in love with a criminal
And this type of love
Isn’t rational, it’s physical
Mama please don’t cry
I will be alright
All reasons inside
I just cant deny
Love the guy

[Bridge:]
And he’s got my name
Tatooed on his arm
His lucky charm,
So I guess its okay
He’s with me

And I hear people talk
Trying to make remarks
Keep us apart
But I don’t even hear
I don’t care

[Chorus:]
‘Cause mama I’m in love with a criminal
And this type of love
Isn’t rational, it’s physical
Mama please don’t cry
I will be alright
All reasons inside
I just cant deny
Love the guy
