V: What direction are you taking with the sound?
BS: I wanted to make a fierce dance record where each song makes you want to get up and move your body in a different way. That’s what I want from the music I listen to. This record is for the clubs, or something you play before you go out at night. It’s definitely my edgiest and most mature sound yet.
V: Would you consider this new album a revolution or an evolution?
BS: It’s a little of both. There are songs on this album that don’t sound like anything else and are completely revolutionary, but I also believe that this album expresses where I am today as a woman and is an evolution of who I am.
What is your favorite song on the album and why?
BS: I really love “On the Rocks” because it sounds so different from anything I have ever heard. It’s so cool and quirky
Everybody knows you as Britney the pop star. What are some of your talents and interests that might surprise people?
I love to cook, especially for my boys. I also make a mean southern sweet tea from a recipe my mom passed on to me. It’s really good. I love it. I make it for my boys all the time.
:Despite the ups and downs in your past, you’ve always come out on top. What is the secret to your success?
:I have learned to always stay true to myself and never let what other people say about me change who I am. It’s a really important lesson that took me a long time to learn.
