Britney Spears said she’s being pushed into making videos that are too sexy, according to TMZ.
Spears talked about her video for the new single “Work (expletive)” during a Thursday morning interview on the TJ Show on AM 103.3.
“A lot of sex goes into what I do,” she said. “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.”
When wasn’t there “that much sex stuff going on” in a Britney Spears video? Which old days were those, exactly?
It wasn’t supposed to be like this: 2011 was supposed to be the year of Lady Gaga. Coming off a mammoth first album and incredibly successful world tour, the 25 year-old was expected to rule the world with her massively hyped and eagerly anticipated sophomore album, Born This Way.
Make no mistake, Gaga’s Born This Way was a success, debuting on the Billboard 200 with over 1 million copies sold and putting four singles in the top ten. But the real zeitgeist this year was unexpected: a humble, English, 23 year-old soul singer who we know simply as Adele.
The songstress found success with her first album, 2008’s 19, but it was she, and not Gaga, who enjoyed sophomore success the likes of which have not been seen since… well, ever!
