Britney Spears covers the Jan. 2014 issue of InStyle magazine.
With a new album and show in Vegas, the Pop Princes is doing just fine. Spears sat down with the magazine to dish on being a mom, her Vegas show and her body.
Check out some InStyle snippets below.
On how she views and treats her body:
“I think it’s important to look good and feel good about yourself, but I go both ways on it. I think it’s cruel how the world puts so much emphasis on our looks. I was just watching ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ and I see Kim and what she went through when she was pregnant – the tabloids were so mean to her because she was big. At one point in the show she was upset and said something like, ‘I would be lying if I said that the criticism from the paparazzi while I’ve been pregnant hasn’t taken a toll on me,’ And I was like, ‘Bless her heart,’ Because I remember that time. First of all you are already emotional, and then the paparazzi are taking pictures of you pregnant. That should be the time [in your life] when your body is the most treasured, I love being pregnant for so many reasons, not to mention the sex is awesome then. But in this business you make a deal with the devil. I’ve learned you kind of have to go with it. What I do calls for me to look good. People expect that.I kind of take it as my job.”
On being a mom:
“As a mom, you have all these situations you go through and you’re like, ‘What is going on? Is this normal? Is this a phase? Or what is this?’ and then you feel silly for asking questions because you know, I’m a mom. I’m supposed to know these things, but you don’t. You’re human. To be honest, I wish I had more mom friends.”
On her Las Vegas rehearsals:
“The physical demands are tremendous, I’m rehearsing at least three or fours a day, sometimes even five. My body yesterday- I just felt so bad, I had to get two massages in one day! When I was younger, I wasn’t as likely to rehearse as hard as I do now. I’m harder on myself these days. Before, I would practice two times, and I’m done. Nowadays I’m very critical of myself.”
On what advice she gives young Hollywood starlets:
“My advice for the next generation of stars? Don’t care too much about what other people think. What matters is your own point of view.”
Tim McGraw and wife Faith Hill collectively cover the December issue of VEGAS.
Despite the rumors, Hill and McGraw are still going strong as a couple. In this joint interview, the pair discuss their kids, working together, going on tour and much more.
Check out some snippets from their Vegas interview below.
On their careers:
“It’s not like, ‘Well, now we’ve gotten to a point in our career where we’re not touring anymore and we’re not gonna make records and we’re not gonna do this or that, so we’re gonna go to Vegas and play.’ Everything that we want to do in our careers is available. So we can pick and choose and do the things that we want to do, and line ’em up in a way that works for our lives.”
On stadium vs. theaters tours:
“The big difference is in between songs and when you’re talking to the audience. You can talk to everybody, and in a lot of cases you can hear people [respond]. And that’s when it becomes fun and it becomes sort of [spontaneous]. And it also becomes a relationship in a different way than it is in a big arena. In this theater you really feel like you get to know the audience in a different way. And I feel like they get you to know you in a different way.”
On their relationship painted in songs:
“Being exposed like [‘I Need You’] in a song relationship-wise, especially for us and our 17 years together and our family, that just puts an exclamation mark on what the evening’s all about, really. There’s music and there’s us performing together and there’s us performing each other’s songs and all those sorts of things. But at the end of the day, the show, Soul2Soul is about us and our relationship. And I think that the song sort of encapsulates all of that in one moment.”
On working with Tim M.:
“We’ve not worked together since we went on our last tour in, I guess, 2007, the big Soul2Soul tour. Our kids were much younger then, and it was easier to kind of load ’em up and bring the entire circus on the road. So when the Venetian approached us with the possibility of doing a few weekends for them, one of the first things that they offered was that they would work within our schedule parameters. The Venetian was so brilliant in how they accommodated us in such a way that it was one of the greatest experiences that we have ever had playing live together. I mean, this beautiful 1,800-seat theater, working around our children’s sports schedules and proms and all this kind of stuff that goes on once you get kids in high school, not to mention artistically. We were able to bring basically the design of a stadium-style show and put it into a theater.”
On their children visiting while they’re on tour:
“Well, our oldest daughter saw one show and only because a friend of hers came. I think she left early. But our two youngest daughters, no, have actually not seen it,but they’ve accompanied us [to Vegas]. They love being there and were sad when it ended last time. They’re kids, so they definitely find things to occupy [themselves]. They’ve seen most shows that are age-appropriate for them. Of course, they love Topshop. And they also enjoy just the behind-the-stage, you know, hanging out with the band. And the dressing room. It’s fun for them. The Venetian took really great care of us, so they were a little bits spoiled.”

Britney Spears is on top of the world right night. She just released a new music video, her album Femme Fatale is flying off the shelves and she’s performing all over the place. Spears recently sat down with Us Weekly and dished on her boys, motherhood, her new beau Jason and much more. Check out the interview below.
Congratulations on Femme Fatale! How did making this record compare to making your first …Baby One More Time?
I’m at such a different point in my life now than I was back then. I’m more mature and much more hands on now. I know exactly what I like and what I don’t like. I guess that can make the recording process pretty difficult, because I’m very particular about songs I put my voice on.
You’re a parent now, too. How has motherhood changed you?
It really puts life into perspective. You have to think about all your decisions so much more carefully, because they are affecting your kids too. My priorities have changed and I do everything for the boys. They remind me what life is about.
Tell Us about Preston and Jayden.
Jayden is the youngest and he might be the mama’s boy. He’s very outgoing, always making us laugh, and he’s very creative. Preston is definitely the big brother. He’s very independent. He’s really, really smart and thinks everything through.
What are they into these days?
Their new favorite thing is dressing up as different superheroes, and they’re just so cute! They especially love Batman and Spiderman. We love watching Disney movies together. I also love reading them Fancy Nancy books (a children’s series by Jane O’ Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser) before bed.
What do the boys think of your music?
They are my biggest fans. I make up songs and sing to them all the time. They like to watch me dance. In fact, they join in and do their own moves!
Will they get to see you in action on the tour?
They will be coming with me. I couldn’t go on tour without them! I’m always very busy when I’m on the road, but I make sure to have quality time with them every single day.
What’s your parenting style? And what about Jason’s?
With some things I’m strict and with others I’m easy going. I guess I’m right in the middle. Jason is amazing with the boys. They look up to him so much – they adore him. He’s their hero.
What else do you love about Jason?
We have such a great time together! He makes me laugh, and we are so comfortable being ourselves. We like to stay home, order in, watch movies, go to dinner with friends. And we love to get away for the weekend. Some of our favorite spots are Las Vegas, Hawaii, or Mexico.
Do you see yourself getting married again?
Maybe. Never say never!
Actor David Arquette was driving in West Hollywood when his car veered into oncoming traffic. An eyewitness said that David tried to avoid a stopped car when his own car swerved into traffic.
TMZ was on the scene and took a picture of Arquette on the ground (seen below). According to TMZ, David was on his way to Burbank airport to board a private jet to attend the grand opening of Sugar Factory. He was also supposed to attend a party hosted by Kim Kardashian.
David was later taken to the hospital in an ambulance. The police say that the drivers of both vehicles escaped with minor to moderate injuries.
