Miley Cyrus cited her raunchy VMA appearance as inspiration for her own controversial performance.
And despite being a little off the radar in recent months, it seems that Britney Spears hasn't lost any of her trademark edge, posing in a seriously low-cut outfit on the new cover for her single Work B*tch.
Releasing the new artwork on her Instagram page, the 31-year-old shows off more than a hint of cleavage in a V-neck sequined bodysuit complete with feathered collar.
Looking more trim and toned than ever, the pop star proved that she's been putting in the hard work at the gym as she debuted her brand new (and seriously hot) figure.
While she's most likely to be spotted in jeans or a tracksuit these days as she ferries her young sons around LA, Britney is clearly keen for her fans to know that she's back and better than ever.
Giving the camera her best blue steel, the star poses in a dressing room in the dramatic showgirl-style outfit, giving fans a taste of what they can expect from the video.
Britney was clearly trying to build momentum ahead of the single's release on Monday - and if that outfit doesn't work, then nothing will.
Underneath the pic, she wrote: ''4 days people! Go call the Po-Lice! Go call the Governor! #WorkB.''
She also posted a snap of her lyric sheet with all of the words blurred out - what a tease!
Proving just how much she's slimmed down in recent weeks, Britney tweeted a photo of herself wearing just a blue bikini and towering heels a couple of days before.
She wrote: ''Gonna get my tan on in the desert in between shots on the #WorkBitch set today. It's HOT out here people!!!! #desert #heatwave #WorkBitchDay2.''
