Speaking about the exposure of her breast during a Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake, the pop star told Genre magazine: "I truly feel in my heart that the president wanted to take the focus off of him (Bush) at that time, and I was the perfect vehicle to do so at that moment.

"I mean, it's a bunch of bulls. When you see (Michael Moore's) 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' it just confirms it," the New York Post quoted her as saying.

"I shouldn't have apologized," she told the magazine. "You don't apologize for an accident. It just makes you look guilty.

"I think it's all stupid. It's all so contradictory. Here you have commercials about Viagra, and all the beer commercials, they're all very sexual," she argued.

She added: "Do I vote? Yes, I do. Will I be voting for Bush? Hell, no!"
