Britney Spears has hit back at furious fans who have declared her latest tour too raunchy - saying a sexy performance is all part of her job.

The 22-year-old pop superstar has upset parents with her suggestive behaviour on the ONYX HOTEL TOUR, yet doesn't see herself as sexy or "an object for men".

The TOXIC singer says, "When I'm performing on stage I'm just doing my thing and that's cool, but I don't see myself as an object for men.

"I see so many women who are incredibly sexy because they're confident and I just try to do that, but I don't find myself sexy at all.

"So long as I feel totally comfortable, if it's something I want to do I'll do it regardless of what anyone has to say about it.

"I have full control of what I do, I simply take it as part of my job."
