britney spears hold it against me gif

Fine arts were forever changed when Britney Spears invented symbolism with her 2011 music video, Hold It Against Me. Symbolism is the idea that visual depictions represent something other than their literal interpretation. For example, Spears is seen wrestling herself in the Hold It Against Me music video, which represents an internal struggle. Since the release of this pioneering video, other artists such as Lady Gaga, Stanley Kubrick, and Beyoncé have incorporated symbolism in their works.
