No need to call in Sinead O’Connor: It seems like Britney Spears is the only one to blame for her overtly sexual new music video, according to one director.
After Spears released her “Work Bitch” clip, the pop princess called into Boston’s TJ AMP radio morning show and said she felt there was a little too much skin in the video. Spears said she had to step in and make an executive decision to not use the first cut.
“Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video than what is actually there,” Spears said. ”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. I just have to be true to myself and feel it out when I do stuff.”
While Spears has always had sexy videos, she finds herself longing for the way things were. “A lot of sex goes into what I do,” she continued. “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.”
However, Ben Mor, the director behind “Work Bitch,” said creative control is all in the hands of the artist.
