Pop star Britney Spears showed off her saucy side on U.K. TV on Friday (18Oct13) as she strutted around a studio wielding a whip in a raunchy comedy skit.
The singer appeared on talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man to promote her new single Work B**ch!, and delighted the audience by agreeing to reprise the whip-brandishing character she plays in the track's sexy music video.
Carr told Spears his lazy staff members needed scolding, and she giggled and played along with the joke as he handed her a whip and led her backstage.
The funnyman told her, "The b**ches who work on Chatty Man, they've been slacking off, they don't give a s**t anymore. They need a kick up the a**e!"
Carr guided Spears around the studio and made her playfully whip his writers, make-up artist and even his own boyfriend and grandmother.
Spears later revealed she had private whip lessons before shooting her latest video, adding, "We had a whip instructor come in and actually show me how to use it and to bring it around the back of my head. If you do it the wrong way, you can actually hurt yourself and cut yourself with it. It's really powerful, they're really strong."
