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.”

On the secret to her longevity: “I try not to analyse it too much. I love what I do and I think that helps because it speaks for itself when I perform.”

On another career path: “Seeing other artists continue to do this kind of thing inspires me too. Because sometimes I’m like, ‘What am I doing?’ Like, I could be a teacher. But then I see other people doing it too and I’m like, “Well, you know, it’s probably all they’ve known for so long, so it just kind of makes sense.”

On her creative input with Glory: “Honestly, this is the first project where I’ve really been hands-on. I was really specific about who I worked with and I’ve been learning to say no. I’m a people-pleaser, so that’s hard for me – even if I don’t like something, I’ll do it just to make a person happy. I made sure this album was everything I wanted it to be. I was really selfish with it.”

Being nicknamed Godney and The Holy Spearit: “That’s just how the fans are – and I don’t want to let them down. At the end of the day, we’re all human and we all make mistakes. It’s really flattering, but I don’t know if I can set my bar that high. I’m sure a lot of them have almost felt like they’ve grown up with me.”

On Beyonce’s latest album Lemonade: “I’m a little late on that, but it’s good, really angry, a really hardcore album. Most of the time it almost feels like a therapy album. I respect that. She’s an artist and that’s what she needs to touch on at this moment in her life.”

On Glory: “The beginning of the project was actually not that great. The songs that were coming in were not very good. So we got a new A&R girl, and we totally turned it around, gave it a profound new direction. I wanted to use my voice more. I did different stuff with my voice – more bluesy and urban stuff, and played around with different things.”

“Is it safe?”— Laurence Olivier, Marathon Man (1976)

It is a day without shadows, it is hot, and Los Angeles is ugly.

An elderly woman emerges into the bright light cautiously, hunched beneath a cheap umbrella. In her wake, she drags a handcart filled with groceries and clothing. Oblivious to the discarded chewing gum made soft again by the sun, her orthopedic shoes airlift sugary pink strings from the curb’s surface. As she shuffles past the marquee of the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, it’s not that difficult to pretend she is just an upside-down puppet reporting for work.

Up the block, inside an air-conditioned trailer, Britney Spears leans her face into a flame. With a Marlboro Menthol dangling from her pursed lips, she moves the cigarette into the fire until the tip of it turns orange. She leans back and exhales a minty, snow-white cloud that drifts over to the miniature kitchen and vanishes somewhere behind the unused microwave.

And her hand is shaking.

“Oh, I’m so weird,” she says. “I get nervous in a lot of situations. Parties, clubs. When there are a lot of people around, I’m a weird, anxiety-ridden person.”

I make her nervous. I am a stranger. I know next to nothing about her ninth studio album, Glory. To date, every inquiry sent to her management about album details is left unanswered, or rejected outright. It is recommended I reach out to her label’s president for a comment. Three questions are sent; a single response arrives via email. It manages to be both polite and meaningless.

“Britney spent time crafting and perfecting the music for this album to create something special for her fans,” writes RCA President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Corson. “Glory is truly a special album and reflects where she is in her career and her life right now. The reception has been very strong for the music and we expect that enthusiasm to increase when the album drops.”

The struggle to breach the micromanaged insulation of one of the world’s best-known pop stars is not to be mistaken for a list of petty gripes, or even complaints. It is entirely understandable why Spears would be cautious, especially now, when cameras hide snugly in every pocket and purse. The paparazzi is everyone. Every question I am not allowed to ask hovers somewhere, invisibly, in the space between us. In this fragment of time, I begin to realize Spears is not playing defense. She’s on offense. And it’s working.

“I don’t understand your question.”

Say hello to the star of Marie Claire’s October issue, the inimitable Ms Britney Spears.

After a three-year stint in Vegas, Britney makes a storming return to the charts this month with her album Glory (currently bumping the number 1 spot). Speaking to writer Louise Gannon at Marie Claire’s LA cover shoot, Britney said she’s feeling far more comfortable in her skin these days. ‘I moved to Los Angeles when I was very young’ she said, ‘I was so under scrutiny. If a hair was out of place, I’d be so anxious. I would get very anxious about so many things.’

Britney thinks motherhood has played a big part in helping her to worry less. ‘Becoming a mother and being with my boys [Jayden, 9, Sean Preston, 10] has made me so much more accepting of myself. I’m their mom, whatever. That has been a really big thing for me over these last few years.’

She also revealed that being a multi platinum-selling, international pop star doesn’t make you immune to bad dates. ‘I had a really bad date’, she told us, ‘I mean, it was really bad. I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me. In the evening I got on the scales and I had lost six pounds.’ [She continues] ‘We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward. So after the movie I came home and that was it. It just didn’t work […] He just wasn’t that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same. It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different.’

Three years of physically demanding Vegas shows have made Britney feel fitter and stronger than ever, even though her sister tries to stuff as many brownies into her mouth as possible when she sees her. ‘She’s always trying to get me to eat’ says Britney. ‘I never ate sushi until a year or so ago. I thought the idea of raw fish was horrible. Then we had a day in a hotel in Vegas and she ordered up every single bit of sushi they had and we sat there just eating everything. Now I’m hooked.’

A hit Las Vegas show. Two happy, rambunctious boys. A hot new boyfriend who adores her. In short: life for Britney Spears has never been better.

“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,” Spears, 33, tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive at-home cover story.

While her long-running Planet Hollywood residency is a big hit — the show has grossed nearly $50 million in ticket sales in a little more than a year — the superstar’s true passion is being a mother to Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden James, 8. “My kids come first in my life, bottom line,” says Spears, who shares parenting duties with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.

As a hands-on mom, Spears has a lengthy to-do list: play dates, soccer games, gymnastics lessons and up to three hours of homework a night. “Homework is a priority,” she says. “We have a reward system that helps motivate them: if they get so many As, they get one toy a month.”

As the boys grow into “little men,” Spears is relishing their evolving personalities.

“Preston is very opinionated, very expressive, and if he doesn’t like something, he’s going to tell you,” she says. “But he has a huge heart, he’s a good kid and he has manners … Jayden is sweet, very soft-spoken, kinda funny. He’s adorable — a momma’s boy.”

Recently, the kids have taken on chores, including washing off their plates, taking out the trash and helping the family’s three dogs, and Spears is mulling giving them an allowance. “Preston just asked for a high allowance – like $10 a week or $20 a week – but we’ll see!” she says.

Spears’ boyfriend, producer Charlie Ebersol, 32, also pitches in with the kids – and the boys adore him. “They relate to him really well and they have fun together,” says Spears, who started dating Ebersol about six months ago. “He’s refreshing to be around and really light-hearted.”

With her career on a roll – her new single, a collaboration with Iggy Azaelea, drops on May 5 – and her family thriving, Spears says she’s in a “real good place” in her life. She says, “I’m very blessed.”

 

Billboard full interview: Britney on Why Her Vegas Residency ‘Clicked,’ Being Inspired by Celine Dion and a New Album Not Being a ‘Full Priority’

Billboard full interview: Britney on Why Her Vegas Residency ‘Clicked,’ Being Inspired by Celine Dion and a New Album Not Being a ‘Full Priority’

Britney Spears was barely 21 when the idea of a Las Vegas residency first crossed her mind. It was 2003, shortly after wrapping Dream Within a Dream, her first full-blown U.S. arena run, when she and a friend stayed at Celine Dion’s palatial estate off the Strip to see how the French-Canadian star lived away from the touring circuit.

“I remember how beautiful it was — really cool, low-key — and her dressing room was great,” Spears, now a 33-year-old mother of two, tells Billboard from her family’s residential suite in Vegas, not far from her own dressing room at Planet Hollywood. “I was actually jealous, like, ‘Oh, my gosh, she gets to be in one place all the time.’ Everything clicked: To have your children and your family and that way of life, it just makes sense to have everything in one place.”

Dion’s Caesars Palace residency was a pioneering one. It was the first time an in-her-prime superstar (Dion, like Spears, was 33 when she first embarked) had set up shop in the desert at the peak of her touring powers, debunking the notion that Vegas was a pop-star retirement community. Her 4,100-capacity shows at The Colosseum pulled in $493.7 million in Billboard Boxscore receipts in the first 10 years, and helped lure Elton John, Cher, Bette Midler and Shania Twain to the same venue for a rotation of residencies totaling more than $1 billion in revenue, according to AEG Live.

Las Vegas was transformed by the time Spears launched Piece of Me on New Year’s Eve 2013 at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. (Caesars Entertainment Corp. owns Planet Hollywood.) In 2003, Vegas’ economy was just beginning to wean itself off gaming revenue, which accounted for 43 percent of total revenue on the Las Vegas Strip in that fiscal year ($4.5 billion from July 2002 to June 2003); hotels and entertainment made up the remaining 57 percent ($5.9 billion), according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Today, entertainment has hit an all-time high ($2.3 billion in fiscal year 2014), with non-gaming revenue accounting for 63 percent of the Strip’s earnings.

The electronic-dance boom of the late 2000s hastened the shift. A-list DJs attracted a younger, livelier demo than the middle-aged couples who might see a Dion or Cher show, hit the tables for an hour and call it a night. Spears, who has amassed 17 top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 (including four No. 1s), was already on her fourth album when many of Vegas’ fun-seekers were in middle school.

Britney Spears on the cover of Billboard Magazine & Interview

Britney is on the cover of the March 21st issue of Billboard Magazine (USA) and in an exclusive interview, Brit talked about a new album, her children and much more.

You can read part of the interview below & don’t forget to buy your copy, on stands Friday, March 13.

 

002

Britney Spears has performed nearly 100 shows at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas since the release of her eighth studio album, 2013’s Britney Jean. And though the singer has been back in the studio as far back as September, don’t expect a proper follow-up anytime soon.

“I’m gonna do [a new album] slowly but surely,” Spears tells Billboard for the latest cover story, on stands Friday, March 13. “There’s a lot going on with my kids and schools and, you know, adding new sports and stuff like that. I’m gonna try to do my best to do an amazing album, but it’s not my full priority right now.” The mother of sons Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden James, 8, then added with a laugh, “Kids can drive you crazy.”

Britney Jean debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 in December 2013, with first-week sales of 107,000 copies (her lowest debut for a studio set.) The album included the Hot 100-charting singles “Work Bitch” (No. 12) and “Perfume” (No. 76), both of which Spears performs in her Vegas show Piece Of Me. Through Feb. 21, Spears’ performances have grossed more than $42 million in ticket sales, according to Planet Hollywood parent company Caesars Entertainment, and the singer is officially committed to the residency through the end of 2015.

However, Spears and Planet Hollywood are currently in negotiations about extending the show another two years through 2017, so a new full-length album may still prove harder to squeeze in. “Right now we’re just concentrating on putting out a few great singles as they come,” says Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph. “We’re not really talking seriously about a new album yet. Albums just aren’t as important in the digital age as they used to be. Britney will get to one eventually, but not right now.”
