1. Because work/school/life fucking sucks.
We need a hell lot of motivation to keep us going. And what’s better motivation than Queen Britney telling us to “Work, Bitch”?
2. It’s the perfect workout song
Let’s face it, most of us aren’t exercising as much as we should be. And I find myself whining about being fat a whole lot more than actually working to lose that weight.
And Britney may not look like she did in her early 20s, but watching her rock out those dance moves in her Work, Bitch video with her ridiculously flat tummy and toned legs (let’s not forget she’s had 2 kids, guys) is enough to get me moving. Or so I hope LOL.
3. It’s a perfect reality check to the crap we’ve been fed by the media over the past few years.
Damn you My Super Sweet 16 episodes and every other TV show out there that have characters spending money like it’s worth nothing and not having to work very much for it. And somehow I think those messages have trickled down into our minds, making us think that we can get shit without having to work.
But no, money isn’t gonna fall onto our laps, so thanks for the reality check, Britbrit! If I want that Maserati, I’m gonna have to work, bitch!
4. And the self-entitled whiners of our generation really need this reality check.
Don’t we all know that certain someone who has somehow gotten it into their heads that the world owes them a fucking living?
That if shit goes down, it’s never their fault and everyone has to do shit and give in to them all the time?
Short of saying, “Shut the fuck up,” Britney swoops in with the perfect phrase for them: “You better work bitch!”
5. And honestly, there is no one more fitting to tell us to “Work, Bitch”
Who is Britney Spears? She’s a freaking child star who has been performing before she had even turned 10. She shot to super duper stardom at freaking 17 years old which only snowballed even more as she grew older. Her entire life has played out in real time for the entire world to see: her highs and her lows – both career-wise and in her personal life.
She hit rock bottom in 2007, and everyone looked down on her, pitied her, and basically thought she’d never be anything more than an ex-teenage pop star of the 90s.
And then she proved everyone wrong. After cleaning up her act, she released single after single, many of which hit the Billboard Hot 100, produced three chart-topping albums, embarked on world tours, became a judge on the x factor, nabbed a residency in Vegas – all while being a mother to her two kids.
Plus her body basically went from zero to hero in the past 5 years.
And how did she do that? She worked, bitch.
Please watch her amazing video, which dropped earlier today!
