On why she prefers to work with younger artists and when will she release new music: “I don’t know,” but added that she “would especially like to write for others. There are amazing artists nowadays and I would like to work with the young generation. They are the ones who want to experiment. The older ones are more jaded… they don’t always put their heart into what they do. Working with young people… you see them shine and open themselves [up]. It’s a lot more interesting.”

On the matching denim outfits she and Justin Timberlake wore at the AMAs: “It was my idea. I love denim and corsets so that’s what I asked my stylist [to create]. As a joke, we gave Justin a jean jacket and honestly we thought he would never wear it., but he did and it went down in history. Beyond the fact that we were matching, I think it’s because it was different. I was also wearing a lot of diamonds and I think that the casual side of jeans along with a lot of jewelry made the whole outfit very cool.”

Vogue Interview: Britney talks about her new campaign for Kenzo and how she defines mom fashion

Britney Spears has one not-so-fond memory of the 1980s. “I used to wear big bows on top of my head,” she says on the eve of the debut of her first luxury fashion campaign (it’s hard to believe there’s something she hasn’t done). “I mean, ugly was the way to go in the ’80s, it was all just completely obnoxious—but there was also something so refreshing about that and the fact that we didn’t care what anyone thought about our clothes.” When Spears was approached by Kenzo’s creative directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, about becoming the face of the label’s second nostalgia-based La Collection Momento for Spring 2018 (a tribute to the debut of Kenzo Jeans in 1986), she was excited by the prospect of bringing back that loud, no-holds-barred, ’80s attitude.

The bright campaign was shot on location in Los Angeles by Peter Lindbergh and features pieces like a cropped denim jacket, thigh-high lace-up boots, and a sweatshirt and baseball hat stamped with a throwback version of the original Kenzo logo. “This collection is very youthful,” says Spears. “We had fun on set, even though it was a bit weird for me at first. I am used to shooting in a studio or a small space, and this was on the street. We were out there and I had really promiscuous clothes on, which felt odd, but, of course, on film it turned out to be really cool.”

Let us not forget that Spears is a 36-year-old working mom of two. The days of schoolgirl miniskirts and red vinyl catsuits are far behind her, and she tends to gravitate toward more practical, bohemian-inspired clothing, mostly in a palette of soft ivory and white. “It’s tricky because as a mother, you don’t take as much risk with your style,” she says. “I think when I was younger I took so many risks and really went for it. There was no planning what I wore, and it was like, okay, I am just going to put on the most outrageous thing. I think as a mother you hold back from that out of fear of embarrassing your kids and out of respect for them.”

When Spears is home with her boys, Sean and Jayden, she is “in a nightgown most of the time.” And while she may not be wearing things like meat dresses or thongs on the red carpet, she does say that “there is something very courageous about the younger generation just wearing whatever they want all the time, but I don’t know if I could do it at this point. I think I would go and hide under a rug or something, because I’ve been dressing a certain way the past 15 years and I wouldn’t know how to react to a big change.”

Luckily the Kenzo campaign has given Spears a new outlook on embracing more playfulness in her current wardrobe. And playfulness, after all, is something that comes naturally to her—just watch one of her incredible Instagram videos featuring her own idiosyncratic version of a runway walk. The giant hair bows might be long gone, but Spears is not afraid to step out of her comfort zone and get experimental. And her sons sometimes give her the confidence she needs to mix things up. Watching them wear things that clash or have wild prints, she says, is “intoxicating because you are like, You know what? I’m not going to care what I wear today.” She adds, “As a mother, I used to be very strict about what they wore, but, at this point, they are growing up and becoming their own people. I want them to do their own thing—I respect that.”

New interview with PEOPLE Magazine: Britney talks about her kids, her new perfume and more

PEOPLE Magazine posted a new interview of Britney talking about being a single mother, her 22nd fragrance, those Instagram Fashion Shows and more! The interview was posted in two parts on the official People’s website. We’ll see if there’s a third part.

My scents are special to me because…“I love the idea helping people feel sexy, strong and confident, and I think my fragrances show that. Each of my fragrances represents a different side of my personality and my passions.”

If I have an hour to myself, I…“Take a relaxing bath or a yoga class, if I am not spending time with my boys. I need to have a little bit of “me” time, and a break from all the hectic activity helps keep me grounded.”

The inspiration behind my Instagram fashion shows is…“That I just love playing dress up with clothes, and decided one day to have some fun putting on a fashion show with some of the dresses that I had just bought. I love doing these videos so much that now I can’t stop! I do practice my walk!”

The biggest lesson I have learned about myself is…“That I love making music and performing, and it’s easy to get so busy with that stuff that I forget to stop and take a moment to just enjoy and appreciate everything. I’ve learned I need to make an effort to do that more often because my boys are growing up so fast and I want to remember every second of it!”

Britney talking about Preston and Jayden:  “My kids come first, always. There is nothing more rewarding than being a momand watching my sons grow into young men. I am so lucky that I get to experience all of life’s adventures with them.

The balance between work and my personal life can be a challenge. I always do my best to plan my schedule around my family whenever possible. I love watching them play sports and just running around with them. We have a lot of fun together. We love having a beach day together.

I have always taught them that beauty comes from within.”

Britney Spears Opens Up About Sam Asghari for the First Time

In a new radio interview with CBS Radio’s Fast in the Morning With Nathan Fast on AMP 103.7 Britney opened up about her relationship with Sam for the first time. After the drama created by an ex of him trying to get her 15 minutes of fame, it looks like Britney and Sam are still happily together.

As we know, they met on the set of Slumber Party music video and here’s what she said about that moment.

“I think we were at um…we were shooting,” Spears recalled of how they first met, referring to her music video for “Slumber Party.” “We were doing the scene where I was doing the walk scene through the hall to go through the door to go to the bedroom and we were sitting there and waiting and waiting together for like 20 minutes at a time. We were having to be literally stuck there together, so we were basically forced to talk to each other.”

“He has no idea…I mean, he knows my name but he doesn’t really know me as a person. He’s like, ‘What is this girl like?’ and I have no idea who the hell he is, you know?” she continued. “We started talking about sushi and started talking about things we like and like we should go to sushi one day. ‘Let’s do this, let’s do this,’ and he said, ‘OK, I’ll give you my number after the thing.'”

Spears and Asghari filmed the video for “Slumber Party” months before its November release, but Spears says she didn’t call him for quite a while.

“So it wasn’t even a serious thing,” Spears said. “It was one of those things that we were having a conversation to get through the experience, you know? I kept his number, and it was so weird — it was like five months later, and I found his number in my bag. I was like, ‘He is really cute. This guy is really cute.’ So then I called him, and ever since then, he is just a really fun, funny person.”

Britney confirms she’s working on new music!

O.M.G! Surprise, Army! In a new interview with Vegas Player Magazine, Britney confirmed that she’s already working on new songs in the recording studio. “I’m not sure what I want the next album to sound like,” she says. “I just know that I’m excited to get into the studio again and actually have already been back recording,” she reveals.

Here’s the full interview.

It’s roughly one hour before Britney Spears will take the stage for another performance of her hit Las Vegas show, “Britney: Piece of Me,” when she smiles and leaps out of a chair. Hair and makeup complete, Britney’s ready. But first, the pop star makes a beeline to a small area backstage where she meets with anywhere from two to three dozen eager fans. As she poses for pictures and greets each of them, another sellout crowd is making its way into The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Photos complete, she runs back to her green room to dress for her opening number, “Work Bitch.”

It all happens in what seems like a flash. For Britney, it’s a routine she’s perfected over the past couple years. In fact, when it comes to green-room demands, Britney is rather easy. The girl from Kentwood, Louisiana simply requires some sweet iced tea, a few candles (she says they calm her nerves) and a CD player. “Yes, I still use CDs,” she admits, then adds. “Believe it or not, I still do get a bit nervous before I go onstage. But once the show starts and I hear the roar of the crowd, I’m totally energized.”

Now entering its third year, “Britney: Piece of Me,” has become one of the city’s top-selling, and most talked about, shows. “Vegas has really been a fabulous experience for me. I say it all the time, it’s become like a second home,” Britney explains. “I love everything about it.”

That includes dinners at MR CHOW, hitting the shops and lounging by the pool. She’s learned to make Las Vegas home.

One look at Britney and it’s clear she’s been hitting the gym. Not only has the spunky, always on-the-go mother of two found the energy to keep up with her equally active boys, she’s taken her workout routine beyond just cardio and light weights. She spent this summer mastering Planet Hollywood’s FlowRider — an intense wave simulator — and tackled parkour, an obstacle course training discipline often used by contestants of the show American Ninja Warrior.

More specifically, she talked about the single’s music video, she described it as “It’s kind of a younger ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ theme. So it’s kind of a little risqué. It’s sexy. It’s very moody.”

Here’s the interview with NCCF president Jeff Gordon and Mario Lopez for Extra.

 

On Piece of Me Charity Ride: “I love kids. So when Jeff told me about this I was like ‘this is something that I had to do.’

On Hillary Clinton: “We talked about food a lot. We talked about jambalaya, we talked about our favorite restaurants here in Las Vegas. She’s a great lady. I love the fact that she’s a great communicator with people and she’s very present and aware.”

On Slumber Party Music video: “We just did the video. It’s kind of like a younger Eyes Wide Shut theme. So, it’s kind of a little risque. It’s very sexy, it’s very moody…and it’s fun! It’s fun.”

On Doing her own “Slumber Parties”: “No slumber parties…no one special at the moment.”

On her Piece Of Me wardrobe malfunction: “Yeah, well, it was really tight around my neck. It was the second time I’ve worn it and I was on the guitar and it just popped and I was like, ‘Oh, my God. It’s never done that before!’ so I just had to hold myself. One of my dancers, Zach, he came to me and put a shirt on me, so I had, like, a huge nightgown onstage… it was kind of invigorating!”

Her body: “I like to work out. I have a trainer. I love swimming.”

On Sean and Jayden dictating her Instagram posts: “I have to ask permission. They’re very funny [about] what I put out. Like, ‘Mom, we want this on Instagram. Mom, this cannot go on Instagram.’”

Their Halloween costumes: “Preston’s gonna be a clown. Jaden’s gonna be a statue of a pumpkin.”
