The Femme Fatale pop star dropped her latest video Monday night, according to the singer's Twitter account.
“Ladies & gents, I’m excited to present to you the video for one of my favorite songs off of Femme Fatale. Enjoy,” the singer tweeted from her handle @britneyspears.
However, when fans click various links to the Spears' reportedly controversial Criminal video, they will receive a message informing them that the video is longer available in the United States, as per the uploader's call.
Excited for yall to see the Criminal video! Whose gonna stay up & watch on @iTunesMusic tonight at midnight EST? Brit! the pop songstress tweeted Monday night.
It's still unclear why the video was pulled off of YouTube in the U.S., but one could assume that it may be because of the racy nature of the scenes.
Although, the video remains available for fans in the UK.
Brit’s real-life boyfriend, Jason Trawick, stars as the singer’s hero in the video, saving the pop star from an abusive British man who slaps Britney at a highbrow party.
The singer’s modern-day dangerous, yet, musical adventure is filled with various criminal acts intermixed with sex scenes and shots of the star dancing in a hallway.
According to reports, the two mimic Jay-Z and Beyonce's 2003 Bonnie and Clyde, video of a troubled love story.
The Criminal video, which was shot in London after the riots and features Britney robbing a convenient store with a gun, culminates in a massive slow-motion shootout with the police as Brit and Jason lock lips in a blaze of bullets and then escape through the streets of London.
When can we actually see this video?
A rep for the singer had no further details about the premiere, according to MTV News.
