Britney’s gonna mark her territory tomorrow.
Over the weekend, Britney Spears posted two tantalizingly too-short teasers from her forthcoming “Perfume” music video. How does the clip for Britney Jean‘s second single look? We’re gonna channel our inner spoken-word slam poet to give you our breakdown:
Tears. Pools of tears. (Why do they come at night?)
Swimming. Marking. Loving. Yearning.
Fears. (Why do THEY come at night?)
Fearing. Wondering. Keeping. Losing.
My territory. (Gonna mark it.) #micdrop #hackysack
OK, so maybe we’re not as poetically gifted as we might’ve hoped. But hey, at least Brit-Brit’s theatrical artistry will make up for our failings! Seriously, the “Work B**ch” singer even tweeted about how demanding the “Perfume” shoot was for her as an actress. (“Crossroads,” who?)
Had to dig deep and really play with some acting chops for this one!

Watch Britney Spears’ “Perfume” video teasers after the jump.
In the first teaser from the Joseph Kahn-directed video, we see Britney getting up-close-and-personal with her man, played by professional model babe/ rumored Norwegian demi-god Alexander Kjellevik. (Who started those rumors? Us? HOW DARE YOU. You’re right. #SorryNotSorry) We also get but one momentary knowing look from Brit, and then it’s over. Don’t worry, though, we’ll get plenty more o’ those if Friday’s “Perfume” preview video is to be believed.
The second Insta video shows the foundation of their relationship crumbling, as Ms. Spears literally holds onto Kjellevik for dear life. There’s also a brief glimpse of a pool scene, which could very well mean some Nearly Naked-ney in the final clip.
Also, if you’ll remember those photos from the “Perfume” video set, she and her man end up in the desert in the daytime at some point. Possibly whisked away on a Curious-powered Maserat-eh? Guess we’ll have to wait until Tuesday — aka TOMORROW — when the clip drops to know for sure.
