Britney kertoile USA Today -lehdelle elämästään ja urastaan. Hän sanoo muun muassa, että hänellä ei ole enää mitään todistettavaa, mistä syystä Britney Jean -albumin promoaminen jäi vähälle. Hän kertoo myös peloistaan ja toiveistaan. Poimin tähän vain Britneyn omia kommentteja, koko juttu löytyy täältä.
It’s in my blood to perform. I’m a hometown girl, and my personality at home is the opposite of the performer in me. But then, when I’m home and haven’t done anything for a while, I get really itchy and nervous and weird-feeling. Performing is my therapy, to become different people onstage. It gives me confidence. I don’t have that much confidence in myself. But when I’m onstage, it’s my alter ego, and it kind of does adjust my personality.
I’m a family girl and (like) being in one place. Traveling around the world is really strenuous for me, being in a different bed every night, flying and everything. I look back now, and I don’t see how I did it. This (residency) just seems ideal. It’s an hour from L.A., from my home, and it’s perfect.
These intense workouts have really been excruciating. It’s probably the hardest workout I’ve ever done, ever in my life, getting ready for this show. I look back at my other tours, and I’m doing more songs here than I’ve ever done. And it’s just way more, the speed of the dancing throughout.
I know nearly 100 shows sounds like a lot, but I’m excited. I’m the type of person who, if I don’t have enough to do, I go crazy. I have to stay busy. It’s a good thing to stay busy.
I love what I do, and at this point in my career, I don’t feel like I have anything to prove. I didn’t do much promotion for the new album for that reason. I don’t feel like I have to do every TV show. I just want to perform and inspire people. When I’m tired and I see one of my dancers pick up my part, they inspire me. I think that’s why we’re here, to inspire each other.
A lot of things scare me, yeah. Um, like I’m not good in social settings. And I’m not good with heights. Or any animals other than my animals. I’m scared of dogs. I have dogs, but they’re tiny. I’m scared of other dogs. I got attacked by two dogs when I was younger.
I’m happy with where I am.
