Britney Covers 'Marie Claire UK'


Britney is gracing the cover of Marie Claire UK’s October issue. She opens up about dating, motherhood, and growing up in the South. 

Brit reveals that she’s just like the rest of us… she’s been on awful dates. She revealed, "I had a really bad date. I mean, it was bad. I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me. In the evening I got on the scales and I had lost six pounds…"

She went on, "We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward. So after the movie I came home and that was it. It just didn’t work… He just wasn’t that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same. It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different.”

The most important men in her life? Her two boys, Sean and Jayden! "My boys don’t care if everything isn’t perfect, they don’t judge me. If anything, when I’m all dressed up they aren’t happy because it usually means I’m going to work. I’ve been through a lot and I’ve got to this point where I’m feeling good about being single. The best relationship I’ve ever had is with my boys.”


Britney reflected on how her southern upbringing affected her rise to fame. "Southern girls can be very hard on themselves because fyou are expected to act in a certain way, you are expected to please people. And then I moved to Los Angeles when I was very young. I was so under scrutiny. If a hair was out of place, I’d be so anxious. I would get very anxious about so many things."

 She thinks motherhood has played a big part in helping her to worry less. "Becoming a mother and being with my boys has made me so much more accepting of myself. I'm their mom, whatever. That has been a really big thing for me over these last few years."
