London: Pop princess Britney Spears has been transformed into a Manga character on the cover of a Japanese magazine, dressed in a series of risque outfits.
The singer is on the September cover of `Pop` magazine, dressed as a Manga doll wearing a lace negligee, reported Daily Mail online.
Other pictures show the mother-of-two dressed as a bride and a schoolgirl.
The 28-year-old had earlier donned a schoolgirl outfit, more than ten years ago for the video of her hit debut `Baby One More Time`.
But Britney is defending the pictures, insisting they are art.
"I loved working with Takashi. I especially liked how he took high-end fashion and incorporated it with Japanese Manga," said Spears.
"We took a lot of characters and art before we shot, so I could get a feel of what he was looking for. I was in Japan on my last promo tour, and I loved it," said Spears.
