Watch Spears Imitate Her Dad in Clip From "Britney: For The Record"

November 17, 2008 4:00 PM ET

As Rock Daily has reported, Britney Spears recently sat down for an in depth interview that will air on MTV two days before the release of Circus — and now we've got a clip from the show where Brit imitates her dad, Jamie (a.k.a. the guy in charge of her conservationship, and therefore all her legal matters) in costume on the set of the "Womanizer" video. "I wanted to make this film because I started to feel like I wasn't being seen in the light that I wanted to be seen in. This is an opportunity to set the record straight and talk about what I've been through and where I'm headed," Spears has said. Britney: For the Record airs on MTV Sunday, November 30th at 10 pm ET/PT.

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
