To celebrate the 100th edition of V Magazine, Britney Spears stars in a trio of covers, shot by Mario Testino.
The singer also reflects on her life in the spotlight and tells V Magazine about the pressure of fame, and says that she feels sorry for celebrities like Justin Bieber who are often criticised.
“Whoever is in the spotlight, people are really quick to judge. I mean, there are a lot of kids coming up who’ve experienced that. You know, Justin Bieber, he’s huge, and he experiences that. It’s just the way the world works, unfortunately”.
Luckily, Britney has learnt to brush off any criticism she receives, and puts it down to her length of time in the industry. “I’ve been doing this for 20 years. I kind of don’t pay attention to it. I have my relationship with God and myself and that’s what matters to me. I really don’t care what most people think.” she told V Magazine.
Britney also spills the beans on her hotly anticipated ninth studio album, and why it’s taking her so long to release it.
“Honestly, I’m just particular with this record,” Spears tells V. “It’s my baby, and so I really want it done right. I would much rather have it be completely how I want it to be, whether that takes another year for me to do, or two months. I have no idea at this point. But I just know that the direction I’m going in is so good. It’s the best thing I’ve done in a long time. I’m proud of the work, and it’s very different; it’s not what you would think at all. But I’m not rushing anything. I just want it to be done right, so that my fans will truly appreciate it.”
It’s brilliant to see how Britney has overcome the difficult times in her life. She is currently at the top of her game, fulfilling the second leg of her Las Vegas residency. In fact, her ‘Piece of Me’ show has taken Vegas by storm, with extra dates being added up until September 2016.
