Britney Spears Demonizes the Poor in "Work, Bitch" Video

0_cover.jpg
The music video for Britney Spears' "Work, Bitch" dropped yesterday and was received by the citizens of the world with the applause Lady Gaga is still waiting for. It's filled with glitzy clubs, tight outfits, late-night parties, and some incredible dance moves to remind us all that Brit's still got it. It's also a searing condemnation of the world's poor. As her Republican perm-and-pressed slogan goes, Brit Brit wants everyone to "WORK, BITCH."

Britney doesn't begin "Work, Bitch" with anything shocking. She's simply dawdling in a vanity chair, posing in a swimsuit, and dancing by the pool with her personal BLACK BAT GIRLS! It's like what Miley's been doing except Brit's props don't twerk and really are faceless! Britney also cleverly dresses her Black Bat Girls in all leather to make it clear to the world that her faceless back-up dancers aren't from just any gang of ratchetness. They work (for her), bitch.

Britney begins to reveal her socio-economic beliefs about the poor once the dance moves pick up, as if she sincerely wishes to stomp it and pop-lock-and-drop it on the face of every person in the world who isn't working hard enough. She assembles her back-up dancers in the middle of a desert to symbolize how poor people don't have much. To add insult to injury, Britney performs on a blank Twister board to vividly illustrate how poor people cannot afford dots. The dots will remain an elusive presence in the poisonous brew of poverty until the poor die with unhappy lives and families and friends. Britney quickly creates this dichotomy--pools with bat girls vs. a desert of broken board games--in order to establish the foundation for the all-out class-war that will comprise the rest of her video.

This has nothing to do with the poor.  You're irresponsible for saying it does.

Either way...To think that she's "demonizing the poor" is stretching it way too far...!!! America has enough "paranoia" in the government...
