Comeback queen: Britney Spears appears in new shots taken while filming a new music video for her song Hold It Against Me
Despite a very public breakdown and the complete loss of legal control over her own life, Britney Spears has maintained her title as the Princess of Pop.
The singer appears tanned, toned, and back in fighting form in new stills leaked from the set of her most recent music video for the single Hold It Against Me.
However the 29-year-old star has had to publicly deny that she needed the use of a body double to help perform some of the more tricky dance routines.

But as these pictures show, the star appears to be in good form in the various scenes for the much anticipated new video.
In one shot the singer is surrounded by topless male dancers - her toned legs and abs on show in a pair of tiny shorts and a cropped bustier.
In another Britney bares her stomach during a dance move as she rehearsed behind-the-scenes for the next part of filming.
She also looked flawless in close-up shot of her surrounded by microphones.

The singer recently had to deny the use of a double after several reports suggested she was unable to complete the choreography and even walked off set in tears.
A spokesperson for Spears told TMZ, 'These accusations could not be further from the truth.'
'Britney worked extremely hard on this video and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shoot.'
The spokesperson said Spears and the director 'got along great', adding: 'Fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video.'

Meanwhile, Akerlund himself said the singer has been 'great throughout the entire process and gave it her all.'
'This video is gonna be f***ing awesome. It's all Britney,' he added.
The track is the first single to be released from Britney's new album 'Femme Fatale', which is out on March 29.
The video is set to premier on MTV, MTV.com and Vevo.com on Thursday February 17.
