Britney Spears "Work Bitch" Video: Banned in the UK!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Britney Spears says a lot of sex goes into being Britney Spears, and her racy new music video for "Work Bitch" is certainly reflective of that admission.

It's hot. And provocative. And now banned in the United Kingdom ... partially.

According to British media reports, the Britney Spears "Work Bitch" music video can only be viewed after 10 p.m. (really) due to its risque content.

No daytime airings on music channels, including MTV, will be allowed. Ironic, since Brit's now-ubiquitous Brit accent plays a big part in the video.

Channels are reportedly calling for Spears to release a "clean" edit of the music video to broadcast before 10 p.m. that is suitable for all audiences.

According to a source, the word "bitch" cannot be said on TV before 10 p.m in the UK, and well, that's just the start of the issues with this effort.

In addition to saying "bitch" at least 20 times, maybe it's the itty-bitty outfits? The feverish gyrating of her body? The scene depicted in the GIF below?

Even Spears herself said during a phone-in interview with to The TJ Show Thursday that she was a bit uncomfortable and even edited out some scenes.

That's right, the UK should be thankful the video isn't even worse, and her comments sparked rumors that she was pushed to oversexualize the video.

The singer's father and manager denied forcing her to do anything.

"Britney is never pressured," Spears' father and manager, Jamie Spears and Larry Rudolph, said in a statement to E! News, while confirming her control.

"She reviews all creative and for her ‘Work Bitch' video, she discussed toning down some parts in finding a balance of sexy and being a mother."

Did she succeed? If you haven't seen the final product, ogle away:

Don't believe the hype!
If the video was banned in Britain (which it isn't) is because it is utter, utter shit!! (Can I say that in America?).
Lucky it didn't have a bare breast in it. Then you would go totally bonkers!
Put the poor deluded girl back in her box.

+ I sure hope they banned Miley Cyrus' new videos as well as Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Rihanna oh and why not add Katy Perry shes wearing a bra in "Roar" and looks too sexy in it doesn't she...I do think that Britney's song is slightly motivational it's telling people to get up off their ass and WORK B***H

Compared to previous videos and what's currently out there I didn't think it that bad. The difference between a naked Miley and and a not naked Britney, Britney is actually very very sexy and has the moves.

She had to do whatever it took to make a successful comeback. I want to see that video anyway.

Brit is just as disgusting as Miley. Wonder what her kids will think when they get older.???

They will think "Yeah mom did some daring things, but compared to the OTHERS of the time i don't think she was so bad." It's not like she's saying the F word every chorus (NO F WORD IN ANY BRITNEY SONG) she's not selling her womanly bits nor is she parading around in an oversexualized manner. It's good that she has morals and knows when to not take it over the limit!

Be glad she's not conforming to the likes of other's. I don't think she has done any song or video that was that bad. 'Gimme More' was dancing around a pole but even then she was not nude, hell they got pole dancing fitness studios! 'I'm A Slave 4 You' was a sexy, tasteful song with a great dance vibe, ain't no song by her that was over the top sexual.
