Britney Spears' forthcoming video for "Hold It Against Me" is being heralded as genius by its choreographer. That may be true ... she's just not in all of it.
According to TMZ, citing a source close to the production, the singer couldn't nail the routines, so a dance double stepped in to do the difficult legwork.
Jonas Akerlund, the director, was upset that Britney hadn't practiced enough so he asked her dance-double - Allison Kyler - to fill in. Things got heated.

A rep for Spears says "The accusations could not be further from the truth. Britney worked extremely hard and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shooting."
The rep adds that Britney and Jonas got along great, and that "fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video."
Akerlund himself says "[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."
"I've been around long enough to know when an artist gives their all, and it doesn't get better than this. This video is f**king awsome. It's all Britney."
Well, there are your two polar opposite accounts. Which do you believe?
