Professionally, Britney Spears has a lot to feel good about: Her new album, Femme Fatale, is receiving the best reviews of her almost-20-year career. “I’ve worked so hard on this album, so it’s really refreshing,” she says.
On preparing 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 how being a mom affected how she approaches her career:
“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.”
