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 ...

Good for you, Britney. Stand strong. You have a female audience too that doesn't want to see you pandering.

She said it is because she is a mother now. She doesnt want to be all slutty now. Good for her.

Good for her. She needs to speak up and not let the men in the industry force her to do something she's no longer comfortable with. She's a mom now. I'm sure she is thinking of how her young sons will view her or their friends (the family I should say). I say stick to your guns Britney. This people in the industry need you more than you need them. You are their money cow and without you they aren't anything until they find the next sexy young thing to exploit for their own sick reasons.

At least I don't think Dan Schneider knocked her up like he did with Amanda Bynes.

It's a shame that they use some of these stars as money-making commodities, nothing more. Sad.

It's sad, but the pop music of today is so horrible that the only way they can sell that garbage is by using sex.

Good for her for finally standing up for herself. That is a step towards getting her mind and her life back. I wish more artists would do this. I want to see the same thing, dancing, not a porno video.

"Work" is the least sexualized because Britney toned it down, dungheads. I wonder if TMZ can think beyond two sentences.

It's not like she'd be able to attract people with her "SINGING"....

So you wanna be a rock superstar and live large?
A big house, five cars, you're in charge
Comin' up in the world, don't trust nobody
Got to look over your shoulder constantly

Cuz Britney Spears is ripping off your lyrics.

Instead of big house, I'll use Big Mansion.

Instead of just saying 5 cars , I'll list them all.

Instead of live large - I'll live fancy.

TMZ proves once again that they are all 8th grade drop outs. They wrote this is the least risky video she has made. DUH "think about it" TMZ, She said the racy parts were all cut out so yes this video is toned down compared to her others.
