Britney Spears has opened up about why she shares naked photos on Instagram in her new tell-all memoir, The Woman In Me.

Over the last couple of years, the 41-year-old 'Toxic' hitmaker - who has been in the spotlight since her early '90s days on The Mickey Mouse Club - has used her Instagram page to post a number of raunchy pictures or videos.

Whether it's clips of her dancing in underwear or posing nude in her backyard with only strategically placed emojis covering her modesty, the pop princess takes it all off.

The controversial posts often leave her fans divided, prompting them to either praise her or share their concerns for the star  - which has led to the 'Baby One More Time' singer deactivating comments on all her posts. Check out one of Spears' posts below: 

Now, in her new autobiography, Spears finally addressed the commotion surrounding her content and explained why she has a penchant for posting jaw-dropping pics on her social media platform.

In a passage viewed by The New York Times, the Louisiana native believes that many of her followers might find her posts confusing and says that she gets "joy" from being able to pose in a way that makes her feel sexy rather than in a way which has been meticulously choreographed by someone else.

"I know that a lot of people don’t understand why I love taking pictures of myself naked or in new dresses," Spears penned in her book. "But I think if they’d been photographed by other people thousands of times, prodded and posed for other people’s approval, they’d understand that I get a lot of joy from posing the way I feel sexy and taking my own picture."

The statement comes after the 'Stronger' singer sparked concern after posting a video of her waving two large knives around while sporting a crop top and white bikini bottoms.

Although she assured her worried supporters in the caption that the objects were fake, many of her 42.3 million followers still assumed that they were real and even took the drastic measure of calling the cops. Check out the singer's latest knife video:

After the welfare check, the star took to her Instagram to hit out at the cops who showed up at her property in a post, penning: "So unacceptable for cops to listen to random fans and come into my home unwarranted...Jesus Christ...Can I make calls and make others feel threatened in your home?"

She claimed that the authorities who came to her home wouldn't leave "until they spoke to me as people did 4-minute performances with knives," adding: "I am getting an apology. I’ve been bullied in my home for so long now.

"As my mom does the silent treatment when paps ask questions about her own daughter as if I’m in the wrong…nope it’s an old game. People need to be responsible for their actions! It’s about power for cops," she concluded.

Spears' much-anticipated autobiography was released worldwide on October 24.

It features a series of bombshell revelations about her private life, especially her past relationship with Justin Timberlake.

The 'Womanizer' musician claims the 'Sexyback' hitmaker got her pregnant in the early 2000s, but the pair decided to proceed with an abortion because he didn’t want to be a father so young.

In addition to this, she also confirmed the infidelity rumors, revealing that she kissed her dancer/choreographer Wade Robson - which is why Timberlake allegedly ended his relationship with her over a two-word text.

Since extracts from the book have been shared online, it has inevitably caused a stir, prompting Spears to step in to clarify that she did not mean "to offend anyone" by sharing her personal story.

"My book’s purpose was not to offend anyone by any means," she wrote on Instagram, per The Independent. "That was me then... that is in the past!!! I don’t like the headlines I am reading... that’s exactly why I quit the business four years ago!!!"

"Most of the book is from 20 years ago... I have moved on and it’s a beautiful clean slate from here," she added. "I am here to establish it that way for the rest of my entire life!!! Either way, this is the last of it and s**t happens!!!"
