Sexy singer Britney Spears has decided to set the record straight on whether she prefers COKE over PEPSI - she shuns them both in favour of energy drink RED BULL.

The OOPS!... I DID IT AGAIN beauty, 21, sparked outrage when she was photographed on more than one occasion with a can of COCA COLA in her hand - despite being signed as Pepsi's poster girl.

Britney has since been replaced as Pepsi reps by chart rivals Beyonce KNOWLES and Shakira, but she'd still like to clarify her preferences.

She says, "Actually I prefer Red Bull. I know that's really bad, but when I have photo shoots to do and I'm really tired, I drink Red Bull and apple juice. It really pumps me up."
