Singer Britney Spears graces the cover and pages of music mecca publication – Rolling Stone – and promotes her upcoming disc – Circus – which drops on Tuesday, December 2. Ms. Spears issue hits newsstands on Friday, November 28. Here are some excerpts from the telling interview on her hiccups.
On feeling mature: I feel like an old person now. I do! I go to bed at, like, 9:30 every night, and I don’t go out or anything.
Rolling Stone reporter Jenny Eliscu on interviewing Spears: We were never left alone together, and my questions had to be submitted ahead of time for approval.
Alan Rudolph (Spears’ Manager): Her job is to be Britney Spears, and unfortunately, that job bleeds into her personal life and creates this odd situation where she needs to have security people around her all the time.
On dates accompanied by her assistant, Brett, and Rudolph’s colleague, Adam Leber: Right when we got there, we just knew it was just bad. He looked like an older version of Harry Potter, but skinnier. … So I had to get dessert first. And the other date I had, the guy was really, really tall and a lot older. … We’re trying to ask him questions, like, ‘OK, you’re into martial arts, so what kind of martial arts are you into?’ And he was like, ‘Oh, all kinds.’ … But you know how silly we are, so we were just cracking up.
