They’re still toddlers, but Britney Spears said her sons are picking up some bad habits.
“They’re starting to learn words like ‘stupid,’ and Preston says the f-word now sometimes,” Britney told the mag. “He doesn’t get it from us. He must get it from his daddy. I say it, but not around my kids.”
Britney, who spoke only about her music and her children for the cover story, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, said she takes great joy in spending time with her two little ones.
“Every time they come to visit me, I think about how they’re such special people,” she said.
The singer, who was not asked about the conservatorship she is under during the interview, said she would spend more than the three days a week the court has allowed her to see her children, if it weren’t for the break up of her marriage to Kevin Federline in 2007.
“I didn’t think my husband was gonna leave me,” Britney told writer Jenny Eliscu, who had to submit her questions for approval before the interview. “Otherwise I’d be with my babies 24/7. But since they’re almost like twins, they both take care of each other. I think they look like me.”
Because of the restrictions Rolling Stone said were put on the interview by the pop singer’s team, Britney revealed very little, but she did hint that her new album has a song that offers some insight into the 20-something woman.
“[It’s] about artistic expression and the masquerade of people acting and putting on shows,” Britney said of the unnamed cut she wrote last summer. “Through that, you create your own world. The song talks about how other people are coming into this girl’s world, but she didn’t invite them in. So she’s saying, ‘Why are you here, if I didn’t invite you?’ It’s complicated, but you can tell it’s me who wrote it, because it’s in my voice and there’s a difference.”
Though she revealed herself in at least one of the expected songs on “Circus,” Britney told the magazine she was frightened of being too open.
“It’s scary to put yourself out there and be like, ‘Oh, God, is that cool?’ If you’re not going to really go for it, you can’t just go there halfway,” she said. “But sometimes, when you go for it, you can’t lose.”
