Britney Spears‘ “Work Bitch” video was a master class in tasteful raunch (unlike ratchet queen Rihanna‘s “Pour It Up” visual), with Britney the whip-brandishing diva dominatrix slash writhing desert siren leaving some of the sexiness to the viewer’s imagination. It was well-executed, with the general consensus being that Brit looked stunning and reinvigorated. But in a recent interview with Boston’s AMP 103.3, Spears said she’s tiring of the sexed-up music videos, and that “Work Bitch” was actually supposed to be even racier.
“We showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video then what is actually there. Like, I cut out half the video because I am a mother and because, you know, I have children, and it’s just hard to play sexy mom while you’re being a pop star as well,” Spears said. “A lot of sex goes into what I do. But sometimes I would like to bring it back to the old days when there was like one outfit through the whole video, and you’re dancing the whole video, and there’s like not that much sex stuff going on,” she continued.
“It’s about the dance and it’s about being old school, it’s like keeping it real and just making it about the dance. I’d love to do a video like that.” We’re all for that, because, Britney, you’ve put in enough work (bitch) to be able to do what you want in your videos. You just proved you’ve still got the sex appeal, now go and make that old school dance-fest to prove you’ve still got the moves that were hinted at here.
