Britney Spears says she is under intense pressure to make sexually-charged music videos … but now she says she doesn’t want that kind of stuff anymore.
The 31-year old singer – who just released a new racy video for her single Work B***h – called into Boston’s The TJ Show, where she revealed that she is under pressure to use sex to sell her music.
‘Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video than what is actually there,’ Spears said when asked about the racy video. ‘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.’
When the DJ asked this question, ‘Are they pushing you further than you wanna go and then you sit in the editing room and say, ‘No that has to go’ and that’s pretty much how that’s all lined up?’ Britney nervously replied, ‘Yes.’
She adds, ‘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.
‘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.’
