With the release of Britney Spears’ much-anticipated seventh studio album, Femme Fatale, less than three weeks away, the pop diva is beginning her round of promotional interviews. Of course, she’ll be doing the Good Morning America thing on Tuesday, March 29, the day the album hits stores. But one of her first print/online interviews is with Out magazine in a story called “Britney E-Mails Her Heart.” The story is slugged that because, as you might guess, the interview was done entirely via email. (Her handlers are obviously still keeping her close, which is no fun.)
Since email interviews allow the subject to really think about what he or she is saying—and the luxury of having a publicist read over and edit anything before it goes back to the journalist—this particular interview didn’t yield the juiciest of quotes of anecdotes. But, what the hell! We’ll bite! She talks her new album, the album she thinks changed the world (you’ll be surprised!), which Golden Girl is her favorite, and lots more. Here are a few of our favorite bits from Britney’s chat with the gay magazine:
When you were starting out, whose career did you want to mold after yours? “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 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.
