Pop singer Britney Spears will always brand herself a married woman - despite getting a divorce 55 hours after her wedding last month (JAN04).

The I'M A SLAVE 4 U star still has strong feelings for ex-husband JESSE Alexander, who she wed following a reported alcohol binge in Las Vegas.

Britney, 22, made her confession to a tattooist called JESSE during an inking session in Los Angeles.

He says, "She said in her head she was still married. She wears a gold wedding band and says they'll be together no matter what."
