Brit admits her fears as she takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the making of her seventh album: ‘Femme Fatale!’
In her new MTV special — Britney Spears: I Am The Femme Fatale — Britney takes fans along as she finishes her newest album Femme Fatale with the help of will.i.am, works on a video for her single “Till the World Ends” and prepares to return to the stage for the first time in over a year. But despite appearing calm and collected, as she approaches the studio to meet with Will, Brit’s nerves start to take a hold of her.
” I have so much going on — I can’t really explain it … just butterflies,” Britney says. And, “just because I haven’t been out for a year, the first couple of shows, I’m just going to have the jitterbugs.”
First Britney travels to the studio to meet Will, who she refers to as “brilliant.” And as is her nature, the pop princess gets to work.
“That’s the way I’ve always been,” Brit shares. “I’m there to work, I’m very professional.”
Next Brit heads to film her video. Her goal — make it look new and have fun doing it!
“I feel like I’ve done so many videos, I’m at the point I want to enjoy myself,” she notes. But, “I really like to choose songs that empower people.”
Next stop — Las Vegas for Brit’s special performance at the Palms Hotel and Casino. And guess what? She had no need to be nervous!
“The fans were amazing,” Brit admits. “It was good energy — they hype you up and make you feel larger than life.”
Brit is about embark on tour — the first time she has gone on the road tour in two years, she tells NYC’s Z100 radio station.
And the hardest obstacle while on tour? Candy! But Brit doesn’t give in. “You have a state of mind of just eating really healthy,” she says. Plus, “we’re dancing really hard.”
“I’m usually pretty busy when I’m not working,” Brit explains to MTV. “I have two children, so I usually get them up in the morning, and I’m usually at the gym, and I help cook dinner sometimes … a lot of the stuff that I do I do early in the morning when my boys are at school.”
And at 29, Brit has finally gained a sense of maturity when it comes to her fame. “When you are starting out, they say hurtful things,” Brit says to Z100. “Then you get to a point where it’s like, ‘Enough already.’ You brush them all off.”
