Britney Spears

I'm Being Pushed Too Far Sexually

Britney Spears claims she's under a lot of pressure to make hyper-sexual music videos -- but now, Britney says ... she's over it.

31-year-old Britney called in to The TJ Show on AMP 103.3 in Boston this morning ... and when the conversation turned to her racy new video for "Work B**ch," Brit made it clear she's being pushed too far.

"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.”



Britney also said the original cut for the music video was too risque ... and she had to put her foot down to protect her reputation:

"Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video than 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."

"I just have to be true to myself and you know, feel it out when I do stuff.”

At one point, the DJ asks Britney, "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 laughs nervously and then responds, "Yes."

What's interesting -- the video for "Work" is probably the least sexualized video she's done ... maybe ever.

Think about it ... "Hit Me Baby" (hot school girl outfit)  "Slave" (sweat and gyrating), "Oops I Did It Again" (red leather catsuit) and "Toxic" (nude bodysuit) were pretty damn racy.

That being said, we gotta ask ...

Talk is cheap. If you don't agree with it, Britney, just say no. I bet that she continues to do the same because her choice is to do that.

Ummm if she "went back to the old days" she'd be a hypersexualized tween....asking to be fcuked again.
When that's how you start your solo career off, you can't complain that they want more as you get older

When you are unable to truly sing without the aid of outboard electronic equipment the producers have to use what is left. Showcasing your body is the only thing they have. $150.00 karaoke, crazy ****.

The record industry made her by tricking her out, and they'll break her if she doesn't want to be tricked out. They'll find someone else who's willing to be treated like a prostitute if Britney's willing to play the "mom" card. Why do you think Miley Cyrus has gotten all the hype she's gotten?

No one is holding you at gunpoint to do things against your will, Britney. You have a "will" and your own choices. What you are saying sounds ridiculous.

Her entire career is based on sex. It certainly isn't becuase of her "singing talent".

Women singers are turning out light porn..too bad most of them have good voices and songs and don't need to be pimped.

Someone should explain to her that what she thinks is dancing is nothing but prancing like a stripper and walking around a stage.
