Pregnant pop princess Britney Spears is baring nearly all on the cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine. The singer of "... Baby, One More Time" posed in the buff for the cover of the August issue; there's also a photo spread inside.
On the cover, Spears, who is sitting, cups her breasts with her hands and crosses her legs while showing her protruding belly and smiling for the camera of lensman Alexi Lubomirski.
"Nothing to wear?" a cover headline asks. "487 Best new ideas inside," informs Santa Maria Times.
According to Washington Times, Spears, who appears with her legs and arms crossed in the Demi Moore inspired photo, is pregnant with her second child. US Weekly reports Spears used a vegetable dye to change the color of her locks and a spokesman says husband Kevin Federaline "loves it." Spears also cut her tresses along with the dye job, but was fitted with extensions for the picture-taking session.
Harper's said pop singer Spears "was never more beautiful" than when it photographed her a week ago and that it was the first time it had printed a nude photo on its cover.
The magazine added, "Since word leaked out about the shoot on Monday, people have been desperate to get their hands on the exclusive photos which were posted on various Web sites without permission from the magazine."
The former teen idol whose hit songs include "Oops, I Did It Again," Spears has frequently complained that she is hounded by paparazzi and earlier this month appealed to them to leave her alone. She also recently came under criticism for driving with her baby on her lap while fleeing a photographer.In an interview with NBC "Today" show host Matt Lauer, she tearfully admitted to being "an emotional wreck," and defended husband Kevin Federline from sniping in tabloids, informs Scotsman.
