This is too good

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.

This kitten got your tongue tied in knots, I see. Spit it out cause I’m dying for company. I notice that you got it. You notice that I want it. You know that I can take it to the next level, baby. If you want this good ish sicker than the remix. Baby, let me blow your mind tonight. I can’t take it, take it, take no more. Never felt like, felt like this before. Come on get me, get me on the floor. DJ what you, what you waiting for? Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh. Woah oh oh oh oh oh ohhh.
