    Britney Spears Will Be Wearing an Engagement Ring—Here's Why!

    Britney Spears is getting engaged!

    For music video purposes, but still.

    E! News has learned that the pop star who apparently gets a kick out of people thinking she's on the verge of retying the knot will at least play an engaged gal in her new video for "Criminal," with a big, fancy ring and everything.

    But guess who has major objections and doesn't plan to forever hold his peace?

    Spears' real-life would-be fiancé boyfriend, Jason Trawick, plays the white knight who saves the day when Brit's make-believe fiancé gets abusive at a party, according to BreatheHeavy.com's Jordan Miller, who obtained a leaked copy of the casting synopsis.

    Trawick shows up, punches out the bad dude and then he and Spears, who tosses her ring in the dust, hit the road on a motorcycle and end up on a crime spree.

    Wild! (They probably just should have kept the bling and used that for cash, but...hey, that's just us.)

    So, when more photos showing Britney wearing a diamond on that finger inevitably make the rounds, remember it's all for show. To think otherwise would be "Criminal."
