Britney Spears has given her next North American tour a truly adult touch - by adding foul-mouthed R+B singer Eamon to her line-up.

The 22-year-old TOXIC singer, who recently said she's now stopped writing songs suitable for children, has been thrilling more mature fans with her raunchy antics on her ONYX HOTEL TOUR.

And now she plans to get even riskier by asking Eamon, singer of such profanity-laced tracks as F*** IT (I DON'T WANT YOU BACK), to open the first two weeks of her next tour, which starts on 22 June (04) in Hartford, Connecticut.

He enthuses, "This is big. She really packs out places. I'm really excited and I just wanna get out there.

"Me and Britney aren't really the same type of artist, but I'm a fan of hers. I think she's cool and really talented. But she does her thing and I do mine, and I'm excited to do it for people, and I hope they like it."

Spears has 11 North American shows left to perform with Kelis and SKYE SWEETNAM, running until 14 April (04). On 24 April (04) she'll head to Europe, where she'll play with Justin Timberlake's 'N Sync bandmate Jc Chasez.
