Playing Britney Spears Admits She Doesn't Listen to Her Own Music

Britney Spears is really missing out on some great tunes!

In an interview with Flaunt magazine, the 34-year-old pop princess reveals that while she appreciates those who are fans of her music, she's not one of them. "It’s funny, because I don’t really listen to my music,” Spears admits. “My kids [Sean and Jayden] do and my nieces do. I’m about the creative process. I’m in the moment of being creative and then I put it out there. Of course, I sing my songs every night [at her ongoing residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas] and I have to listen to it that way, but I’m all about change. And new. And forthcoming."

She adds, "But, there is a part of me in my music and I hope, for my fans, that they can have that part of me when they hear me on the radio, or buy my CD, or whatever they do.”

Spears is even oblivious to the release of her album, Glory, which came out on Aug. 25. "It’s done," she says of the record. "But I have no idea when anything’s coming out.”

Keeping candid, Spears also confesses to having severe anxiety, but says she has no intention of slowing down when it comes to her music career. "I get nervous in a lot of situations. Parties, clubs. When there are a lot of people around," she confides. "I’m a weird, anxiety-ridden person."

Spears credit her "great security team" for allowing her to keep going. "I think with a lot of things in the past, I didn’t have security. I didn’t have the guidelines that I have now, which are brilliant. I’m very close to my security team," she brags. "I have kids now too, so everything is on a way lower scale."

Spears says now that she's a mother, her life has calmed down a bit. "I’m actually a very boring person. I don’t go out. I don’t really do anything," she shares. "I should be Mother Mary, seriously. I think my life has done a complete 360. Things are just different now. It’s a different time. It’s a different era."
