Britney Spears has been revealed as the navy's secret weapon in their fight against Somali pirates.
The US popstar's hits, including Oops! I Did It Again and Baby One More Time, are blasted out at full volume to deter kidnap attacks from pirates who "can't stand Western culture or music".
Merchant navy officer Rachel Owens, who works on supertankers off the east coast of Africa, told the Metro: "Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most. These guys can’t stand Western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect."
"It’s so effective the ship’s security rarely needs to resort to firing guns. As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can," she added.
The navy's ships are in constant danger from pirates and in 2011 there were 176 attacks from bandits off the coast of Africa, according to the newspaper.
