Whiz kids morph Britney’s pictureOctober 5th, 2008 - 12:49 pm ICT by IANS
London, Oct 5 (IANS) Britney Spears is caught in an Internet hoax after computer whiz kids superimposed the singer’s face on Tyra Banks’ body and passed the images off as the CD cover of her new song “Womanizer”.Contactmusic.com reports that the raunchy pictures show a woman in a black corset-style leotard, brandishing a cane. In another shot, the female is shown placing her cane on a semi-naked man’s chest as a snake slithers over his body.
But the images have been exposed as fakes by Britney’s record label Sony BMG because label bosses have yet to see the photographs themselves, let alone release them online.
“These pictures have nothing to do with us. We haven’t even seen the official cover pictures yet because they have only just been shot. I haven’t a clue why someone should do this but there are all sorts of pictures of Britney around. There’s a lot of made-up stuff on the internet, too,” said a spokesperson for Sony BMG.
The photos of former supermodel Banks are the promo shots from a previous run of her reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model”.
