Britney Spears' Music Video Dance -- It Ain't Her!

2/2/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears doesn't do the dance moves in her new music video, "Hold It Against Me." She couldn't nail the routines, so a dance-double stepped in to do the legwork ... sources connected with the production tell TMZ.

Multiple sources on the music video set tell TMZ, Jonas Akerlund, the director, was upset that Britney hadn't practiced enough ... so he asked her dance-double -- Allison Kyler -- to fill in.

We're told it got so heated between Britney and the director -- the singer left the set crying on the second day.

Although multiple sources connected with the production have told TMZ the story, Britney's camp flatly denies it.  A rep for Britney tells TMZ, "The accusations could not be further from the truth.  Britney worked extremely hard on this video and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shooting."  The rep adds ... Brit and Jonas got along great, and "Fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video."

Jonas tells TMZ, "[Britney's] been great throughout the entire process.  At the end of the shoot I got the warmest hug I ever got from an artist, and I look forward to hugging her again very soon!"  Jonas adds, "I've been around long enough to know when an artist gives it their all, and to me It doesn't get better than this." 

Jonas says, "This video is gonna be f**king awesome.  It's all Britney."

You Britney fans are delusional. Using "her rep squashed these rumors" as an excuse. What's her rep going to say "Yes, Britney just couldn't get the choreography right so we hired a double?" OF COURSE NOT. The rep is paid to make Britney look good, not tell the truth.

I believe the story straight from Jonas. Brit is a fabulous dancer and she loves it. It's her and not some double.

I believe this completely! Numerous videos of Britney when she was on tour showed her just standing and flapping her arms when she was supposed to be dancing. She also didn't even bother to do the lip-syncing on numerous occasions. She has absolutely no talent left; never was a great dancer anyways.

This is stupid. This chick can't even sing worth a dime on her own anyways, so I really wouldn't be surprised if it isn't her either. But do I really care? No, not one bit. I have never been embarrassed enough to purchase her lame ass fake overly produced albums either. This chick needs to go away...she is a nothing, talentless, trailer trash who lucked out when Disney discovered her. She has never deserved the fame, fortune or attention she has always received and she will never be talented enough to deserve it either.

Wow...the Brit fans are way crazy on this thread. Maybe you all should take a step back, take a deep breath and go pop a few pills like your girl does. She doesn't deserve your worship anyways. Save it for real talent like Pink, Beyonce, Christina A and so on. You know...REAL singers with REAL talent. Not lip synching, autotuned to death fake crap that she doesn't even write! RIP Britney's Career. Wish it happened a hell of a lot sooner. lol!!!!
