Spears tones down video to please mom

Britney Spears has toned down her hot new video because her mother thought some scenes were too raunchy, reports The Philadelphia Inquirer.

During the promo for her single "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know," Spears can be seen writhing around a beach with a male model, Bryce Durand, wearing only denim hot pants and a skimpy bikini top.

Schoolteacher Lynne Spears was unhappy with her daughter's sex-siren image and was outraged by her cavorting in the video — so much so that she demanded that some scenes be cut from the final edit. The Louisiana-bred Baptist star has granted her mother's wishes. Some of the most passionate moments have now hit the cutting-room floor.

The video was directed by Herb Ritts, who is famous for his erotic photography. "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know" will be out March 19 through Jive Records.
