London: Britney Spears has been accused of trying to dupe fans after releasing a heavily airbrushed image of herself.
The singer appeared to have shed pounds in glamorous publicity shots for her new album Femme Fatale.
The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker looked super slender in a polka dot swimsuit, but in a gig on TV she looked much bigger.
She was seen bursting out of a leather basque and fishnet tights and appeared much older than in the album shots.
“Britney still looks good but she’s changed a lot since she first found fame as a teenager,” the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.
“The leather outfit made it impossible to hide any lumps and bumps but these photos make her look like a different person. It definitely looks like she’s had a helping hand from technology,” the source added.
