Pop beauty Britney Spears must promise Chinese officials that she will not reveal too much flesh in her current world tour or face a ban from performing in Shanghai and Beijing.

The raunchy singer is currently travelling the world on her raunchy Onyx HOTEL tour, in which she dances provocatively in lingerie and simulates sex with her male dancers.

However officials from the Ministry of Culture are concerned about her sexy image and asked the concert's Chinese organisers to guarantee that her saucy outfits are toned down for the five gigs later this year (05).

A spokesman for the concert's organisers BEIJING POLY CULTURE AND ART CO. LTD says, "The ministry's wishes will be respected. But Spears' outfits and stage show are the same on each stop of the tour and it would be impossible to make up clothes especially for the China performances."

With more than 54 million records sold worldwide, Spears would be one of the biggest international pop stars to play in China since the communist state was established in 1949.
