Britney Spears Photoshopped To Look Thinner In 'Work Bitch' Video?

Britney Spears looks hot as ever in her video for "Work Bitch," but is it all thanks to Photoshop?

New images comparing the singer before and after the visual effects studio got its hands on the video suggest that hard work wasn't exactly why the 31-year-old looked so amazing.

In photos posted by HOAX Films, the visual effects studio that worked its magic on "Work Bitch," Spears appears slightly larger than she does in the edited video. The difference between the photos and the finished video was first noticed by RadarOnline.

While HOAX doesn't specifically claim to have done any work on Spears' figure, in a post on SoundandPicture.com, the company says it "completed sky replacements shots, set extensions and cleanup." However, it's not clear what counts as "cleanup."

Even if airbrushing were at play, Spears still looks darn good in what we'd like to think is an unedited photo that she shared from the set back in September.

Spears' rep and HOAX Films did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Huffington Post.
