Britney Spears has dismissed suggestions of a racy lesbian undertone to her ME AGAINST THE MUSIC video - insisting she and co-star Madonna were just "acting" sexy.

The IN THE ZONE beauty can be seen performing a series of raunchy dance moves with the MATERIAL GIRL, 45, in the slick promo, which culminates in the pair nearly kissing before Madonna disappears.

But Britney, 21 - who locked lips with the veteran singer at this year's MTV Video Music Awards (AUG03) - denies there was any real sexual tension between them.

She says, "No, not at all. It was part of the video we were acting, there was no lesbian vibe going on."
