If you’re a Britney Spears fan and live in the United Kingdom, you’ll have to take to the internet if you want to watch the original version of her new music video for “Work B**ch.” Apparently, Brit’s new vid is just too racy for UK television, with various British media outlets reporting the video has been banned before 10 p.m. on all channels including MTV.
Instead of showing the regular video, TV channels are reportedly requesting a “clean” version to air. We’re not quite sure how that would be accomplished. Maybe Photoshop some more clothes onto the 31-year-old music powerhouse? Turn the sharks into goldfish? Swap out a fishing pole for the whip in Britney’s hand?
Seeing as the video is already raising eyebrows, we can’t imagine what Britney had in store originally as the mother of two says she edited out some of the even more provocative scenes.
“Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video then what is actually there,” said Britney according to E! Online. “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.”
Goodness only knows what the Queen would have made of that version.
