Britney-Spears-new-video’s Director speaks about I wanna Go meanning!
“A lot of people think this was inspired by ‘Kill Bill,’ because I’m a huge Quentin Tarantino fan.

I wanna Go Director Chris Marrs Piliero (who also directed Ke$ha’s “Blow”) explains Britney Video!
“Guillermo kills it in the scene with the milk, he’s hilarious,” Piliero enthused. “And I love Britney’s reaction there; both her reactions where she’s laughing are so good.
