SUGABABES star Mutya Buena has launched a scathing attack on pop babe BRITNEY SPEARS - claiming the pop princess "can't sing".

The HOLE IN THE HEAD hitmaker, 18, claims Britney uses her sexy image to detract from the fact she has a weak singing voice.

Buena says, "She's a beautiful girl but she can't sing. She strips and shows a lot of her body because she has to - that's the only way for her to sell records.

"Men and boys must be loving it. She is making it because of how she dresses but it doesn't make her sound any good."
