Britney Spears has posed topless for a US magazine. The newlywed wears only a necklace, a gift from husband Kevin Federline, on the cover of the new issue of Allure.
She told the magazine: "We hit a little bit of reality, hardcore, after the first three weeks. [of marriage]. But we handled it fine, and now things are starting to go really smooth."
"Before we got married we were on tour, and we were just like kids, ordering room service, saying, 'Let's go out tonight'. Then, all of a sudden, you have this home, you have the kids [Federline's children Kaleb and Kori], you have to get the [nappies], get the dog to the vet. It's this reality."
Spears added that recent paparazzi shots of her looking scruffy inspired her to get back in shape. "After I got married, I let myself go. I was just lounging around and eating. Photographs of me overweight made me realize I needed to get back on the treadmill!" Her current single "Do Somethin'" is at Number Six in the UK singles chart.
