Pop beauty Britney Spears gets nervous around men she lusts for.

The I'M A SLAVE 4 U singer may have dated some of the world's most sought after hunks - including Justin Timberlake and COLIN FARRELL - but she says she still lacks confidence when chatting to men.

She says, "It's weird - when I'm in artist mode I can act smooth and do my thing.

"But when I'm around a guy I like, I get vulnerable and vague. I must be more assertive."
