Pop babe Britney Spears is enjoying being young, free and single for the first time in her life.

The I'M A SLAVE 4 U diva split from long-time love Justin Timberlake last year (02), and though she's been linked with a string of stars - including FRED DURST and COLIN FARRELL - since then, the singer's determined to stay single and play the field.

Britney says, "I don't want a serious relationship right now.

"Every relationship I've been in has lasted four or five years. I was that girl, you know? A one-guy girl.

"Now it's cool just to be able to date for fun."
