Britney Spears has shocked New York clubbers with her wild partying - although her spokesperson claims she's just acting her age.

The singer arrived at the LOT 61 club earlier this week (ends6JUN03) at 11.30pm for a raucous night out - and a "very tipsy and very wild Britney" then proceeded to astound fellow revellers with her rowdy antics as she partied for the next three hours.

A source tells Britain's DAILY STAR newspaper, "She was dancing on the banquettes and could hardly keep her eyes open."

However, her spokesperson counters, "Britney is being criticised for doing what most people her age do - going out and having a good time. She's not out of control."
