Britney Spears: “Gimme More” Topless Shots

Sometimes Britney Spears’ life really is like a circus.

Topless images of Spears, culled from the 2007 shoot for her “Gimme More” video, have hit the Internet, offering a glimpse of Brit-Brit that she perhaps wasn’t ready to offer.

The images, published on, show Spears with little more than a few splashes of body paint protecting her modesty. In the video, Spears writhes around a stripper’s pole—apparently a favorite activity of the songbird’s—sans shirt and bra, though of course the clip doesn’t offer the view in these pictures.

Time will tell whether the fleshy snaps will increase or decrease demand for tickets on the European leg of Spears’ Circus tour
