Earlier today I brought you the first look at Britney Spears on the cover of Out magazine. Now the interview has hit the web, and Britney opens up about everything from Rihanna, gay marriage, Madonna, Femme Fatale, and the first time she experienced a Britney Spears drag queen. Check out some of the highlights below...
When was the first time you saw a Britney Spears drag queen?
In New Orleans singing "Slave 4 U." I almost died!
When you were starting out, whose career did you want to mold yours after?
Madonna. No question. She is an amazing entertainer. Besides Madonna, I also admire Sarah Jessica Parker’s career and her shoe collection.
Are there any of your songs that you wish you hadn’t recorded/you don’t really love?
No. All of my songs are f–ing amazing.
How is Femme Fatale different from your other albums?
I think Femme Fatale is my most upbeat and mature album yet.
Who are some of the stand out collaborators on Femme Fatale?
I collaborated with Will.I.Am. I am a huge fan of Black Eyed Peas, and I have always wanted to work with him. I also worked with a new up-and-coming artist from the L.A. area named Sabi. She raps on a song I love called "(Drop Dead) Beautiful."
What is the worst advice a record executive ever told you?
Someone once told me that the "…Baby One More Time" video should be me as a superhero fighting a giant robot monster.
How would you feel if one of your sons turned out to be gay?
I love my boys no matter what.
Do you listen to your contemporaries’ music?
Yes. I love Gaga and Rihanna. Rihanna’s "S & M" is awesome.
Which song from the last 10 years do you wish you had recorded?
Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.”
