Britney Spears: Mother, pop star, style icon. In that order.
Britney has spent most of her life in the spotlight, but after all that’s been said and done, being a mother is still her most important role.
The hot mom graces the new cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine where she talks about motherhood, her upcoming tour and her biggest fashion faux pas. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On how motherhood has changed her: “I think things through a little bit more, and I worry a lot. I'm more straightforward, and I speak up more than I did before. When I was younger, I wouldn't speak up as much, but now that I'm a mom, things have changed.”
On whether she’ll remarry or have more kids: “I've thought about both, so if the timing was right ...”
On whether she would let her kids get into the biz: “If they have a love and passion for the arts and that's what they want to do, then so be it. They are both little actors and so charismatic, I wouldn't be surprised at all.”
Britney on her perfect day: “Getting up with coffee--two cups of coffee. Having a good workout, taking a swim, my boys being there and just having a good day at the pool--we have a theme-park slide. We'd have snow cones, then I'd go to the movies and spend time with my boyfriend. Maybe a Femme Fatale moment [laughs].”
On what people don’t know about her: “I’m pretty normal, you know? Like I said, the type of day I love is just like everybody else’s. I’m like everybody else.”
On her biggest fashion fail: “Ten years ago at the Billboard awards, I wore this orange hat and orange bra and orange booty pants and purple fishnets. Oh, and I had an orange jacket on.”
On prepping for her upcoming tour: “I love to dance, so it's very exciting. The tour rehearsals have been going really well. I think it will be my best show yet.”
On her favorite jam right now: “I love "S&M" and "Only Girl" by Rihanna; that's why I jumped on the "S&M" remix. She's really cool. I like her a lot.”
On her friendship with Madonna: I actually saw her a couple of weeks ago at a party. I guess she's really taught me to stay true to myself. That seems like a simple thing to say, but she taught me through action, not just by saying it. There are so many people around you that have opinions, but you just have to listen to your instincts.”
On being inspired by J.Lo and wanting to be a judge on Idol: “I would! That would be awesome. I wouldn't be a tough judge, though.”
On Lady Gaga: “She's unique and extremely talented. I love her spin on everything.”
