Britney Spears' Version 1 of New Music Video: Too Sexy or Just Pointless?


Britney Spears rejected the music video commissioned for her new song, and there's a dispute over why it was 86'd.

Famed photographer/director David LaChapelle was at the helm of the video for "Make Me ..." Sources connected with LaChapelle tell TMZ Britney's team rejected the video because they felt it was too sexy.

We got a very different story from our Britney sources. We're told the team was extremely disappointed with the video because it was utterly disjointed ... pointless with no story line.

Gotta say ... when you watch a clip from the video, it's hard to follow.

Britney's people went to Randee St. Nicholas for another stab at the video, and this one has a clear beginning, middle and end.
