British singer Natasha Bedingfield refuses to do raunchy photo shoots because she fears she'd be branded a slut.

The SINGLE star agreed to pose for men's fashion magazine ARENA HOMME PLUS because she was allowed to wear tasteful outfits, but she would never allow scantily clad images of herself to be published because it would destroy her sophisticated image.

She explains, "Everyone has got their own idea of what slutty is and I never want to look in the mirror and go, 'You look like a slut.' You can look sexy and be classy at the same time.

"I've done a shoot for Arena Homme Plus but I wore lovely dresses. I wouldn't do underwear shots because I don't go out in underwear. I don't walk round my house in underwear I wear clothes."
