The “Work *****” music video won’t air before 10 PM in the UK because it says the word “*****” too much and features racy scenes.
Major stations want a cleaner edit of the vid, but Britney’s people have yet to provide one.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “While the video has gone down a storm online, it’s a bit too much to play on TV. Music stations like The Box and MTV have their hands tied.”
Not all the tracks on Brit’s untitled eighth studio album will be so scandalous. “Perfume,” a ballad she co-wrote with Sia, will show a more intimate side.
The Source added: “Perfume is a really personal track and very emotional. This is the first album Britney has completely co-written. It’s all about her feelings and experiences and she’s very proud of it.”
