Britney Spears is officially back and better than ever!
During an interview with KTU 103.5 FM's Cubby & Carolina Bermudez in New York City on Friday, the 34-year-old singer opened up about releasing new music, what's to come following her performance this Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards, and what really
happened behind the scenes while filming The Late Late Show
's "Carpool Karaoke
" segment with James Corden.
"[Carpool Karaoke] was really fun," she gushed. "The guy was just so incredibly sweet. I had no idea he has kids, he's a teddy bear. I was like, 'I just want to hug you right now.'"
"It was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores," she continued. "People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us. This is just so awkward."
As far as what songs the two would sing, Spears said Corden "controlled the whole thing," but she did get on his case sometimes and say, "I don't want to hear that song again."
"They didn't show that part," she joked, telling the radio hosts that "…Baby One More Time" and "Oops!... I Did It Again" were two of the tracks she was sick of hearing on repeat. "Oh my God, and he kept playing them. He put a wig on for it. Yeah, I totally went along with it."
This is an exciting week for Spears, as her latest album, Glory
, just dropped, a project she says was "two and a half years" in the making.
"When we first started the project, I wasn't really happy," the pop star admitted. "That took about six months. Then we found an amazing girl who found me the most fun people to write with. Things started rolling. We made a good body of work."
As for touring? Spears said it's not completely out of the question.
"You never know, honestly, my situation right now is very cool, I'm kind of spoiled," she dished. "But, you know, who knows what the future brings."
The blond beauty is currently gearing up for her highly anticipated MTV Video Music Awards comeback
on Sunday, where she'll perform her lead single, "Make Me," off Glory
"I still get very nervous," she confessed. "[There's] just something in the air at the VMAs, it's like electric. I can't really explain it. Every time I've performed there it's always been one of these nerve-racking experiences."
Spears also touched on rumors that she's in talks to perform the halftime show at Super Bowl LI. When asked if she would ever consider it, she simply replied, "maybe."
"[There would have to be] a lot of training and work before that happens," Spears -- who previously performed during the 2001 Super Bowl halftime show
with Aerosmith, *NSYNC, Nelly and Mary J. Blige -- explained. "But I've never done that [solo] before, it would be intimidating. It would be fun though."
Fun indeed, especially if the New York Giants made it to the championship game. Spears admitted she has a crush on one of their players -- 23-year-old wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr.!
"It's always been Brad Pitt," Spears replied when asked who her current celebrity crush is. "But no, no, it's not [Brad]. I really don't have a crush on anyone right now."
It wasn't long before she gave in, saying, "OK, I will say, I think Odell. "Hello. I mean… hello!"
The MTV Video Music Awards air Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
