Britney Spears has conceded her near-naked photoshoot for ESQUIRE magazine was a mistake - and has vowed to keep her clothes on in the future.

The popstar, 21, claims she was high on caffeine-loaded drink RED BULL when she was pictured for the American men's magazine without any knickers on - and admits she went too far in the saucy shoot.

She says, "I did feel kind of weird after those Esquire photos. I was in a moment. I had about eight Red Bulls and said, 'Okay, let's do it.

"I learned my lesson, and you won't see me like that for a while. Not that it's dirty or tacky, but it is really revealing and I wouldn't want my kid, at 21, to be dressing like that."
