Pop princess Britney Spears is careful to be honest with her fans - because she's terrified of bad karma from an omniscient God.

Speaking in a German TV interview, the spiritual singer - who has created controversy by casing off her angelic image in recent years - confesses she's terrified of what will happen to her if she is untruthful.

Britney says, "It's just amazing how the universe works. When you try to hide or run away from things they just come back at you from a different angle.

"Never underestimate the power of God. The truth always wins, so why try to hide from it? You should always be honest and say what you think - even to your fans.

"That's what builds up relationships. That's what I need and that's why I'm here - for my fans."
