Spears sings a
sexed-up R. Kelly song
To hear her tell it, the only action 2003 Worst Actress RAZZIE co-winner Britney Spears
has gotten lately is from her Worst Actress co-winner Madonna. The newly
sexed-up singer appears topless on the cover of the new issue of Rolling
Stone, but inside the magazine, she suggests that her
current love life is a snore, and that she's been sublimating her
libido into her work. ''I think this record is where I'm at right
now in my life. It's sensual, it's sexual,'' she told the
magazine, then laughed. ''I'm probably writing about that
subconsciously because I don't have that right now.''
One song on her forthcoming album is by the typically sexually
assertive R. Kelly; it's called ''Outrageous''
and has the singer whispering about ''my sex drive.'' The album
includes such lyrics as, ''Oh, it's so hot, and I need some
air/And, boy, don't stop, 'cause I'm halfway there,'' and ''Would
you undo my zipper, please?'' and ''I find myself flirting with
the verge of obscene.''
Still, Spears insists her new display of sexuality is done
tastefully. ''I'm not gonna come out on this record and show my
crotch or anything,'' she says. ''That's not me. I would never do
anything like that. It's all in the way you do stuff, all in the
way you carry things. The music is most important to me.'' Even
that notorious French kiss with Madonna at last month's MTV Video
Music Awards was actually marked by restraint, Rolling Stone
reports; in rehearsal, Madonna also planned to give Britney a
playful slap on the ass.
