Britney’s third official single from her “Femme Fatale” album, “I Wanna Go” was released to radio yesterday. Along with it, came the single cover artwork. The song is a’ight, but I absolutely adore the cover. The 29-year-old pop princess looked back to her past for inspiration.

She donned colorful streaks in her hair, very similar to her early years. Then she completed the look wearing a top displaying a skull with mouse ears. Perhaps a throwback to her Mickey Mouseketeer days, but with an edge. It’s like, look at me, I’m still the same girl but a little older and tougher.

The uber huge fake smile puts it over the top. Maybe commenting on how much of a product she was back then, and how controlled she was by Disney and her management. Who knows? It’s all very deep and intellectual. So far from what you would expect from Brit Brit.

With so much symbolism in the cover art, I can’t wait to see what she pulls out for the music video. Will it be a musical Citizen Kane? I’m more excited to see who her male co-star will be. Reportedly, a Twilight hunk turned down the role when Spears offered it to him personally. If you haven’t heard the track yet, check it out below.
