Britney Spears‘ latest video “I Wanna Go” really hits the nail on the head when it comes to making a fantasy sequence into a music video. It’s filled with the stuff the best dreams are made of — telling your haters to eff off, a wicked microphone fight, that robot guy from Terminator 2…oh, and belly shirts! There’s a bunch of other references in there too, but MTV News has that covered.

We sat down with the director of “I Wanna Go,” Chris Marrs Piliero (Ke$ha, “Blow,” Yellowcard, “Hang You Up,” The Ready Set, “Love Like Woe”) to discuss what it’s like working with Brit. Chris also opened up about what he thinks about her “diva” label and who the real Britney Spears is.

And we hate to break it to ya, guys, but Chris had nothing but stellar things to say about the Femme Fatale, from her strong work ethic to her willingness to let Chris do what he does best — direct music videos. In fact, we think someone might have a cruuu-uuush: “She’s really cute…and the way she talks and interacts…I don’t know, you just kinda want to hug her!” Um, get in line.
