Britney Spears: 'The pressure to be sexy is contagious and overwhelming'
During an interview with Showbiz 411, the superstar explained that it's incredibly stressful to always be reminded of you flaws and in the entertainment industry it's impossible to avoid:
"I think there is a pressure for girls to have the right nose, the right body and you are your environment so it becomes contagious when you get in that environment. You actually become that yourself, so it's important to keep cool people around you to keep you grounded."
When asked about portraying such a sexual character in her new music video for 'Work Bitch', Spears added that she isn't like that in reality and has just learned to step in and out of roles:
"I think it goes with what I do. It's my job to portray more of a sex kitten than what I really am at home with my kids. As artists I think people who are really shy - I'm really shy in person - so when I get on stage, it's really good for me to become this different character because it's like therapy for me."
