Last month, I mentioned that Britney Spears was shooting her new video at the polo club, and the finished result is finally here! She’s back in fine form — check it out, and tell me if you don’t understand why I think polo is the sexiest, most awesome sport in the world. For those uninitiated in Jolie-lore, after I left the magazine industry in 2005, I spent nearly 2 years in Palm Beach and England working with Carlos Gracida, the winningest polo player in history –who happens to be the Queen of England’s favorite player! (I literally have a photo in my possession of the Queen gazing up at Carlos with a goofy grin on her face.)
It’s reported that the video was shot at the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara, but I’m pretty sure it was actually shot at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club in Carpinteria. (Dude. Jolie knows her polo.) I think it’s time for a primer for my fair readers–it definitely looks like the polo trend is hotting up!
