Britney Spears’s new single, “Work, Bitch,” was released last month; the video followed last week. It’s a minimalist dance track: Spears lists all the things a person might want (a hot body, a Maserati), and how to get them (“You better work, bitch”). It’s an ode to the American Dream, or maybe Marxism, disguised as a club anthem. (Ronan Farrow might have the best tweet about it yet.)
@aaronpaul_8 Omg I can't believe you tweeted me. I love watching your show. Huge fan and yes, we can dance anytime!— Britney Spears (@britneyspears) October 7, 2013
The parallels are sort of perfect, actually: The video takes place in the desert, and Spears’s refrain of “bitch” is subbed out for Paul’s many iterations. “It’s Britney, bitch” even finds a mirror in Walter White.
Even more synchronicity: Aaron Paul is actually featured on a track called “Dance Bitch.”
