King Crimson’s Robert Fripp & Toyah Willcox Cover Britney Spears
King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp and his wife, the actress and singer Toyah Willcox, have unveiled the latest entry in their “Sunday Lunch” series of cover videos that have captured the internet’s attention in recent weeks.
Their newest effort finds the pair tackling Britney Spears’ 2003 hit “Toxic” and again sees Wilcox don an outfit that leaves little to the imagination. The clip, described as “a love letter to Britney Spears” in the YouTube description, also tags the #freebritney movement, a campaign that seeks to have Spears released from a conservatorship helmed by her father, Jamie Spears, that’s been in place since the singer’s mental breakdown in 2008.
You can watch the video below, which ends with a rare spoken part from Fripp himself as well as an outtake in which the couple both crack up.
Previous entries in Fripp and Wilcox’s “Sunday Lunch” series include:
Metallica’s “Enter the Sandman” (how they wrote it)
Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”
Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle”
Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll”
Alice Cooper’s “Poison”
Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” (with special guest snake)
