Pop princess Britney Spears was overcome by the spiritual presence of native American Indians during a recent drive with a pal.

The OOPS!...I DID IT AGAIN singer was holidaying at a plush spa in Arizona last week (ends08AUG03) when she and her female friend decided to take in the scenery.

Britney's mum LYNNE explains, "One afternoon, she and her friend JENNY took a ride through the countryside in a convertible. They just put the top down and drove until sundown.

"They called me from a coffee shop telling me about the spiritual feelings they had experienced while taking in the scenery.

"I'm not surprised, considering all the mysticism that has been passed down mysticism that has been passed down through native American legends in that area."
