Britney’s gun shoot slammed
POP babe Britney Spears has been slammed for waving a gun around in Hackney.
The Toxic singer was filming the video for new single Criminal in the violence-plagued east London borough.
The vid features her as a Bonnie-and-Clyde style bank robber. But the use of fake guns has been criticised by local politicians.
The 29-year-old singer had permission to film in the area – but councillors say she hadn’t told them weapons would be involved.
A council spokesman said: “We did not agree a replica gun could be used.”
And Labour MP for the area Dianne Abbot added: “It’s pop stars glamorising gangs, which means that some young people get drawn in. Britney should know better.”
Local councillor Ian Rathbone called on the Amercian star to apologise and make a donation to Hackney youth charities.
