Shame on me!

"I Wanna Go" is the third single off Britney Spears seventh studio album, Femme Fatale. It was written and produced by Max Martin and Shellback, with additional writing by Savan Kotecha. Today on June, 22nd 2011 the music video was released for the single. The concept of the music video:

The video begins at a press conference where Spears, wearing a cropped Mickey Mouse top (paying homage to her days in The New Mickey Mouse Club), is being asked inappropriate questions by news reporters, such as "Is it true you banned junk food, smiles, candy, sunshine and laughter from your Femme Fatale tour?" Angered by the questions, Britney replies: "Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, fuck you – I'm out", referencing a scene from the film Half Baked. After leaving the press conference, Britney walks out of the building and out into the street, wearing a white leather jacket and a black skirt with matching with studded combat boots. She signs a fan's copy of Femme Fatale and then blows a kiss to a baby as he whistles the melody of the chorus. As Britney walks along the street, she flashes several men, including a policeman. As a criminal offence, the policeman searches Britney, feeling up and down her legs, as she is bent over a car. Britney later walks away from the policeman, swinging handcuffs around her finger while he buttons his shirt.

She continues walking down the street, where she smashes the camera of a paparazzi photographer who takes pictures of her. More paparazzi appear as she runs away and jumps on top of a taxi. Britney then stands atop of it, wielding the microphone as a weapon against the paparazzi who are hassling her. Across the street, a marquee of the cinema besides her reads Crossroads 2: Cross Harder, referencing her film debut Crossroads. After all the paparazzi, revealed to be cyborgs, have been knocked to the floor, they start crawling back with their eyes glowing red and their faces bursting with wires, reminiscent to a scene in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).  A car suddenly pulls up near to Britney, and the driver Guillermo Díaz tells her to get inside. In the next scene, Britney dances in the passenger seat in a pink bikini top, as Guillermo drives. He attempts to drink some milk while driving but pours the carton of milk over his face. His chest starts to spark, and Britney pulls open his jacket to reveal that he too is a cyborg. The video then cuts back to the press conference, indicating that Britney was daydreaming, due to being asked monotonous and inappropriate questions. Guillermo steps in and leads Britney out of the room. Then, he turns to the camera with his eyes glowing red, and his laugh is heard, referencing Michael Jackson's Thriller (1983).
