She's six shows into her world tour, and Britney Spears is clearly enjoying being back in the spotlight – and in some seriously skimpy costumes.
But perhaps she's already feeling a little too relaxed about life on stage.
As she made an entrance on a swing at the weekend, the pop princess seemed unconcerned about the danger of being seen from an unflattering angle.
It was a stark contrast to the opening night of the tour when she showed off an enviably toned stomach.
But a girl can only hold it in for so long, and Miss Spears, who has surprised critics with her performances, was happy to adopt the slouched pose at the show in Newark, New Jersey.
It is not as though Miss Spears, 27, will be unable to keep herself in shape on the road. Despite some fans being unimpressed at her miming, there is no doubting the energy she puts into her dance routines.
The singer has attracted a celebrity crowd to her comeback shows, with guests including Madonna and Natalie Portman making an appearance in recent days.
In the five years since she last toured, Miss Spears has been married and divorced and suffered a high-profile breakdown which at one stage resulted in her briefly being sectioned.
But the release of the album Circus has been seen as a return to form. Mail Online reported.
