At 34-years-old Britney Spears is feeling more at peace than ever before.
The pop princess spoke about her turbulent 20s when sitting down with Britain’s ITV on Thursday, calling the decade “horrible,” hinting at her very public mental breakdown, and sharing her concerns over her sons.
Spears, who impressed critics and fans recently with her “Glory” comeback, shared her apprehension over debuting her new album with the world. “I was actually really nervous,” she revealed on Britain’s ITV. “I took my time with this record and it took two and a half years to do it. I definitely had the jitters but it worked out.”
As for returning to the spotlight a little older and far wiser, Spears says that she’s happy to be leaving her days of pop mega-stardom behind. “I like my 30s way more than my 20s,” she continued, seemingly referencing her infamous mental breakdown. “My 20s were horrible! [Being] in my teens was fun, but I like my 30s.”
“My 30s are great..You know who you really are,” she added. “I’m in a really good place right now, loving and learning myself. Every day I’m learning who I am, it’s awakening, it’s cool. It’s okay to be single, it totally is.”
And when talk turned to her two sons, Sean Preston, 11 and Jaden James, 10, the songstress expressed concern over their pending teens considering their already devilish ways.
“It’s a little strange as I’m nervous, because I know 12, 13, 14 and 15, is going to be really scary and I’m going to be like, ‘mum, please come to the house and help me out here,” she said. “But right now it’s a great age. They’re still babies!”
