Britney Spears espouses Marxist theory of labour as value
BRITNEY Spears has admitted her latest single Work Bitch is inspired by the writings of Karl Marx.
The star has based her latest hit on a lifetime’s study of the father of communism, and a strong desire to champion the cause of the proletariat.
She said: “I’ve always sung about the relationship between people and the economic systems which govern their lives, for example my exploration of the seductive power of capital in Gimme More.
“Work Bitch is a satire of commodity fetishism which underlines that the real owners of the means of production are the workers themselves.
“When I whip a woman wearing bondage gear in the video, it’s a metaphor.”
