Britney defends her Kabbalah beliefs

ContactMusic.com: Pop superstar BRITNEY SPEARS has lashed out at claims she uses Kabbalah as a fashion accessory.

The TOXIC singer insists her faith in the mystical offshoot of Judaism championed by MADONNA is genuine and has helped her soul.

She says, "For some reason I'm thirsting for it."

"The thing that drew me to Kabbalah is it all comes from light. This sounds so weird, I know, but I'm just trying to explain it in a way that - like, it all stems from light."

However, the pregnant star admits she struggles to understand the deeper meanings hidden within the Kabbalah scriptures: "They are all in Hebrew. I don't understand everything."
