Dave Meyers Talks About 'Radar' Music Video

Dave Meyers (Radar Video Director) :

"She was in a really good headspace and open to trying new things, and I wanted to try some new things with her too,"

"It kind of was a great celebration of trusting one another. ... Now we're sort of both seasoned in our own rights, so it's like two people coming back together, trying to do something fresh and new ... seeking out an actual different technique and stylistic choices and trying to find a form to celebrate them in."

"I thought, 'It's not the first single [from Circus]. Let's be a little experimental and push to not have her around dancers,'"

"I feel, I guess, that the videos are a chance for her to vocalize a sense of herself. The media tends to attack her, so I thought, 'Let's show the classy side of Britney and focus on a classy experience, very European-inspired.' And she's at the point in her career where I think this would be a nice step."

"Everyone seems to watch (Britney)"

"She kind of filled [Madonna's] shoes,"

"[But] everything is done in a Britney way. She's not Madonna, and Madonna is not Britney. It seems like Madonna made the same choices that were right for her at the time, to class her up when she had just done a sexpot video. She was riding that image train too. She was leading that image train, and I think that Britney has done that as well."

He wanted the video to show a "Classy Side" of Britney
