Longtime Britney Spears collaborator David LaChapelle, 56, is a proud supporter of the #FREEBRITNEY campaign!
LaChapelle shot Britney’s infamous 1999 Rolling Stone cover, directed her video for ‘Everytime,’ and ‘Make Me’ (the unreleased version). Last night, LaChapelle got the attention of millions of fans when he commented on a Britney-fan Instagram, writing: “This is some of my footage, this is not my edit. I find it very suspect that the video (Make Me) was ‘leaked’ while Britney was ‘away.’ The video/song wasn’t released because Britney didn’t like it. Her voice as an artist, should be respected. The only direction Britney ever gave me for this video is for me TO FILM HER IN A CAGE! At the time I didn’t understand why would you want to be filmed in a cage? At first I envisioned to film her as a tigress, but she wanted to be filmed more timid, like a kitten. For everyone on my team, at least, we could tell something was off.”
David also recalled a moment during his shoot for ‘Everytime’ where according to him: “The only direction Britney gave me for the video was that she wanted to die, that she wanted to die in the video.” He added: “I have known Britney since she was 17. I shot her first cover, Rolling stone, it was shot in Louisiana at her family home, filled with her pageant trophies. I could tell even back then something wasn’t right.” See below and let us know: ARE YOU SHOCKED? DO YOU SUPPORT #FREEBRITNEY TOO? :
