SCISSOR SISTERS singer Jake Shears has blasted reports he accidentally stripped nude at Scotland's T IN THE PARK FESTIVAL, insisting it was no mistake.

The charismatic LAURA star stunned the July (04) crowd when his kilt - a traditional tartan skirt worn by Scottish men - fell to the ground, exposing his most intimate parts.

But unlike Janet Jackson's infamous Super Bowl (FEB04) "wardrobe malfunction", Shears admits his nude display was planned.

He says, "I'd just like to clear up reports which claimed I had a costume malfunction that day.

"That was no malfunction. I knew exactly what I was doing. I always planned to get naked for you guys."
