Pop beauty Britney Spears has stopped writing songs for her young fans, because she doesn't know how to relate to them anymore.

The sexy singer stunned supporters by marrying schoolpal Jason Alexander in a rushed January (04) wedding in Las Vegas - only to have it annulled 55 hours later - and further shocked them by admitting she indulged her "wild" side last year (03).

And with her new album, IN THE ZONE, Britney has further isolated her younger fans thanks to raunchy tracks like TOUCH OF MY HAND, in which she describes her penchant for masturbation.

But Spears insists writing adult material wasn't an intentional snub to her young fans, merely a reflection of her maturity.

She says, "It's not deliberately meant to be an adult record, although it does have that feel to it. It was accidental more than anything.

"I love kids and I think they're great, but I'm getting older, so the things that I talk about aren't going to relate to a seven-year-old."
