Pop superstar Britney Spears has angered parents with the raunchy live show on her current American tour - because it's "almost pornography".

The I'M A SLAVE 4 U - who has returned to her ONYX HOTEL tour after having to cancel dates because of an injured knee - has been wowing audiences by writhing suggestively on a bed, and gyrating her crotch in the face of a male dancer, who fondled her breasts.

But Britney's graphic performance has upset parents, who are concerned the material isn't suitable for their children.

And matters have been made worse when an American cable TV channel screened a recent concert into living rooms nationwide.

One outraged viewer tells British newspaper the DAILY STAR, "What kind of message does this send out to her young fans?

"She should be banned from our television screens. I couldn't believe what I was seeing."

Another adds, "I watched the show with my two daughters, who stayed up late especially to see Britney.

"I had to turn the television off halfway through because of her outfits and the actions she was simulating.

"My kids were upset, but there was no way I was going to let them watch that stuff. It was almost pornography."
