Britney Removes Suicide From Video
Britney Spears isn't going to kill herself in her next video after all. The 'Everytime' video was to feature a scene where the singer appeared to have taken pills and drowned in a bathtub.
But Britney has decided against using those scenes - which she maintains were meant to depict accidental death, not suicide - and has revised the concept for the video accordingly.
Her record company released a statement explaining the alteration: "Britney Spears was uncomfortable with these treatments due to the potential for a fictional accidental occurrence to be misinterpreted as a suicide. Ms Spears revised the treatment to ensure the video for 'Everytime' will not have a scene in it that could in any way be perceived as a reference to a suicide."
The statement continued: "(Britney) does not endorse (suicide) as a solution to any individual and fully recognises that people who go to this length need assistance and advice and should contact their local suicide prevention organisation," the statement read.
