Pop superstar Britney Spears has got her career back on track - after she wowed fans with a raunchy performance at the first gig of her world tour.

The I'M A SLAVE 4 U singer's increasingly wayward behaviour - including her 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander in January (04) - has been worrying music bosses recently.

But Spears put that behind her as she entertained the San Diego, California crowd - by dressing in skimpy outfits and simulating sex acts.

And she told the 11,000-strong crowd that the media spotlight has made her stronger than ever.

Spears said, "The past six months have been a rollercoaster ride.

"There have been a lot of ups and downs. But I think that's made me who I am right now."
