It may seem like Britney Spears
couldn't have gotten any sexier in her whip-cracking music video
for "Work B–," but she's letting her fans know they didn't even see the half of it – literally.
"Oh, my God, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video than what is actually there," she said Thursday
on Boston's 103.3 Amp Radio. "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."
But, acknowledges the soon-to-be Las Vegas resident performer
, 31, "A lot of sex goes into what I do."
That said, going back to her number one role – being mom to Sean 8, and Jayden, 7 – "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. 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."
Unlike Spears, her recent collaborator Miley Cyrus
has no problems pushing the envelope right now when it comes to sex. And it seems like that may put her and the former "... Baby One More Time" singer in different places.
"We talk a little bit, but I don't text her," Spears says. "I've texted her like one time and she's texted me like one time. But she's a busy girl right now and she's probably all over the place with tons of stuff. We kind of keep it professional for the most part."
