  • Britney Spears talks on her forthcoming album

    Honestly, I’m just particular with this record. It’s my baby, and so I really want it done right. I would much rather have it be completely how I want it to be, whether that takes another year for me to do, or two months. I have no idea at this point. But I just know that the direction I’m going in is so good. It’s the best thing I’ve done in a long time. I’m proud of the work, and it’s very different; it’s not what you would think at all. But I’m not rushing anything. I just want it to be done right, so that my fans will truly appreciate it.

  • Britney Spears talks on ignoring what people say about her

    Whoever is in the spotlight, people are really quick to judge. I mean, there are a lot of kids coming up who’ve experienced that. You know, Justin Bieber, he’s huge, and he experiences that. It’s just the way the world works, unfortunately. I’ve been doing this for 20 years. I kind of don’t pay attention to it. I have my relationship with God and myself and that’s what matters to me. I really don’t care what most people think.

  • Britney Spears talks on prioritizing real life over the digital world

    Honestly, I still don’t use my computer,” Spears told the magazine with a laugh. “My kids use the computer more than I do! I understand that a lot of people are into it, and I have days where I write and stuff, but it’s really not for me. It’s not my thing

  • Who understands you most?

    Probably my mom. We butt heads the most, but we understand each other the most too. It's a weird thing.

  • What does everybody get wrong about you?

    I don't like going out. I hate clubs. I hate being around too many people. I love my home and staying in bed and watching Dancing With the Stars or reading a Danielle Steel novel. I'm kind of boring.

  • What do you plan to teach your boys about how to treat women?

    Hopefully they will respect me by the way I carry myself, and in doing that, they will know how to respect other women.

  • You shouldn't feel guilty about not going to the gym every single day.

    It isn't fun [for me], so to do it every day would be horrible. Three days a week is cool, even two. It makes me feel good and feel like I've done something. It's important to take care of your body.

  • Speaking of kids, do you feel like you have the same body confidence now after having kids?

    I'm getting there. Recently I started to appreciate my body a bit more from before I had kids. But it completely changed, and I have had to work hard at getting it back to where it used to be…. I used to be obsessed with working out…. But I can't get motivated right now because I'm so focused on my music.

  • What is one of the last things you do at night before you go to bed?

    Watch TV. I love Sex and the City.

  • What's the first thing you do when you wake up?

    I fix breakfast for my kids when they're here. And then we'll go for walks. During the day I spend most of the time with my children. At night is when I go to work.

  • Britney Spears talks about Womanizer

    That's a really empowering song. There are so many guys who take advantage of girls and play girls all the time. The song is basically saying that we've got your number—we know what you're up to.

  • If you could send a message to your longtime fans who aren't sure about buying your new CD, what would it be?

    Well, I have been working on this album for a while now, so it's really close to me. I think they will get a taste of where I'm coming from. Hopefully it will be my best work yet.

  • What was going through your head while you were standing onstage?

    This whole year has been a hell of a year for me. I have been working so hard on my album, but…I didn't know exactly where I stood with everyone. When I received the awards and [the audience] stood for me, it showed me how much love is out there.

  • Three awards, that standing ovation. How did it feel?

    It was awesome. It was really cool.

  • When you came out you were presented as the sort of popstar who’d be judged by sales, though. The sort of popstar you were was someone who just sold records. And then maybe you became something else, but do you think you’ve moved so far away from your 17-year-old self that record sales aren’t important?

    You know what, I make the music that I love and that’s what matters really. And I hope everyone else likes it.

  • You’ve been on the receiving end of quite a lot over the years — what would you warn your kids about?

    Well, I wouldn’t want them to go into it feeling fearful, and also nobody can really prepare you for this industry and what you experience, so I’d just have to trust that they have the instincts to know what’s right and wrong and help guide them along the way. I think I have the experience.

  • How do you define success now? Is it album sales or ticket sales, or whether you personally like something?

    Just by feeling accomplished in what I’ve done, you know? In the art that we’ve done. At this point in my career I am making the music that I enjoy and the music I know my fans will love

    View Source:

  • Have you learned that over the years or was that always there?

    Over the years. I’ve always worked hard for whatever I’ve got but as time goes by I tend to want to outdo myself which I guess is a good thing

    View Source:

  • What most drives you to be brilliant — fear of failure or thirst for success?

    Thirst for success. I constantly want to outdo the last thing I've done.

  • Alanis Morissette was a pop artist when she was a teenager but completely changed direction when she got older. Do you see yourself taking new directions later on?

    I want to sing. I want to focus on my music. In the long run, I would really like to act and try and get into that. I’m really happy with what I’m doing right now, but four years from now, I definitely want to have a family and children and settle down. But right now, yeah, this is definitely what I want to do

  • Who wrote the songs on your album? Did you write any of the lyrics?

    No, I didn’t write any of the material that’s on the album. But I did write a song that going to be on the B-side of the second single “Sometimes,” called “So Curious.”

  • Do you ever get stage fright?

    When I was home … the company you’re with and the crowd, it’s my hometown, so I feel real comfortable onstage. But actually being on tour, one of my first performances with ‘Nsync, I have to admit I was really nervous. The opening acts I’ve seen at the Backstreet Boys show in New York, the fans were there to see Backstreet so when the opening acts came out, sometimes they were chanting Backstreet’s name. I was like, “Oh, my goodness, at home that doesn’t happen to me.” I was really stressed, but I just got onstage and did the best I could do and it turned out really good. So after the first shows, I felt really comfortable. Instead of being nervous, it was good energy."

  • Do you remember the first song you sang?

    I sang at my graduation in kindergarten: “What Child Is This.” It’s a Christian song and that was my first song I sang actually onstage. One of my first songs to really sing in front of an audience was, I think, probably “Wind Beneath My Wings” by Bette Midler

  • Obviously, your family is very supportive.

    Oh, yeah, I’m so thankful because they’ve supported me from the very beginning. They just know that I love to sing and this is what I’ve always wanted to do, so they’ve been behind me 100% from the very beginning.

  • A cappella?

    Yeah, I did. It was sort of nerve-wracking because I’m used to singing in front of big crowds and I went in there and there were these 10 executive people sitting there, staring at me. I was like, “Oh, my goodness, I’m just going to close my eyes and do the best I can do.” And I sang and thank goodness they signed me.

  • How did you hook up with your record company, Jive?

    I had an entertainment lawyer in New York, because when I was really young I auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Club but I was too young. So instead the casting director told me to go to New York and when I went I did, I met up with this entertainment lawyer. And, after two years, I auditioned again for the Mickey Mouse Club and I did that for two years, and after that, I went home and was, like, a normal kid again. Then, I was like, “Y’know, I’d like to get back into the entertainment business.” So I sent the entertainment lawyer a tape of me singing and some pictures and he sent it to Jive Records and they signed me.

  • Do you remember where you were when you first heard “… Baby One More Time” on the radio?

    I was at home and I had just gotten off the airplane. It was so weird because we’d just got in the car, I’d just shut the door, and it came on. It was so overwhelming, I just started screaming. It was really cool, though

  • Motherhood is an issue that's come up in these tabloids a lot, and in particular your skills as a mom. You know there was the incident on Pacific Coast Highway where you were photographed, I guess, by the paparazzi again pursuing you. And there was Sean on your lap in the car.

    Yeah

  • People who haven't heard an interview with you in a long time, and you haven't done one in quite awhile, are gonna hear a little bit of a different ... are gonna detect a bit of a different tone in your voice these days.

    Yeah. Well I think I've been through a lot lately.

  • Can you imagine ever living anywhere else? Could you pick up from here and go to small town America again?

    Maybe ... I could go to Atlanta. I've been to Atlanta. I like suburbia-type area ... I love where I live right now. It's really beautiful and stuff like that, but if I have to move in five years, I could do it.

  • Did you ever imagine that your life would one day be the way it is today?

    The extent, no. It's so weird because [in] L.A. a lot of actors and actresses you notice they don't get — I mean besides Angelina and Brad who get it horrible. But I think maybe because pop artists or music artists, they put themselves out there a little bit more than actors and actresses, like that's more of you have a disguise on when you're an actor. But you are kinda puttin' more of your soul out there with your music and I think maybe the public feels like they know you. And when that happens it's more of an attachment there and with the tabloids.
