This entry is an experiment designed to test whether the relatively long asls for singing shots I've found in musical films of the early 1930s might be evident as well in moving-image depictions of singing performances in music videos.   Doesn't seem to be the case in this one.  But the shots are so incredibly short that I am probably incapable fo counting them accurately.   The video begins and ends with some lengthy tableau-like action shots.  If I were to have not counted these then maybe I would end up with a ratio for the shot types closer to what I found in the films of the 1930s.   Maybe I'll have better luck with Britney Spears...
