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."

This girl needs to just give it up. She's no longer attractive. She was hot when she was young and not beat up and broken down and drinking and smoking but now she looks 10 years older than she is. When a guy goes to a strip club he doesnt want to get a lapdance from the 36 year old stripper with the C-Section scar, he wants the young hottie. Britney is the equivalent of that C-Section stripper. She looks beat up these days.

Her music was never really that good but when she was younger it fit her audience, now she's that older girl that still tries to act like shes in college. Her new single is flat out garbage. Why anyone would pay money to see her on tour is beyond me. She doesnt sing live and her dancing sucks so youre paying money to watch her try to dance for 2 hours while her cd plays in the background.

Her time is up. You can't stay young forever and its time for Britney and Christina to realize that they dont fit in anymore. Go be moms, nobody wants to watch you guys try to squeeze into hotpants and lipsync to awful music. Youre the past, you had your run.

False, false, false. Basically, what TMZ did here was make up a rumor only to let it be shot down all in the name of a "good story". Way to go.

Britney Spears is a joke    

Of course this story is true. Every one knows that Britney is a shell of her former self. She is over weight, un-motivated and can't remember simple dance steps. Blame it on brain damage or the anti-psychotic meds she is probably on. Bottom line, she has no business trying to be what she once was. She is now, a joke.

The ONLY thing worse than Britney being a joke, is the fact that her fans are deluded and act like she is as popular as when she was 17. Everything she has become is an embarrassment.

Personally...i love TMZ beacause its the perfect way to get as close to the truth as possible.Honetsly though...definatly not in this case. I mean TMZ can't possibly believe that brits got a double danceing for her when the DIRECTOR of the video makes no such confirmation....MEDIA...go figure>.>

She doesn't sing in her own voice, she lip syncs so why wouldn't someone else dance for her? Has been! Time for the trailer park.

Come on you haters... At first you were accusing Britney for not being able to sing live and you ignored all the amazing dance moves she was doing on stage. Then,you were accusing her for not being able to dance like she used to. Now that she's back on track and (obviously) she'll do some hard dancing again, you try to convince everyone that she uses a double for her dance routins! Get a life instead of making things up about a performer who has proven herself for the last 13 years!
