Britney Spears appears on the August cover of Cosmopolitan, and she also filled out a short questionnaire filled with random questions about being a mom, being a superstar, and well, just being Britney. I came across the questionnaire on Celebitchy, who doesn’t seem to think that the questions were actually answered by Britney, but in fact by her publicist. I however, disagree.
I do think that some of the answers sound a little rehearsed, but I also think that Britney has been in the biz long enough to know which answers are appropriate and will be well-received, and which are not. Let’s remember that she’s not crazy anymore, people. I also think that her answers show just what a well-balanced person she has turned back into, and that she’s not just this crazy pop princess, she’s also a real mom who has real issues with things like teaching your kids to use the potty.

“Multiple choice questions:

Fill in the blanks:
Even though I’ve already accomplished so much, I’m driven to achieve more because: I genuinely love what I do and the company I keep is so much fun.
My preferred fashion style when I’m performing is: exciting, different and always stands out, but when I’m offstage, it’s: flattering yet comfortable
I feel most powerful when: I’m working out

The most heroic (crossed out heroic and wrote horrific) thing I’ve ever done is: broken my knee.
The one thing about men and relationships I wish I’d known 10 years ago is: to say what you want. speak your mind!
I know it’s a little weird, but I think: it’s hard to cook
The best advice I ever got was: be yourself!”
There’s just something very Britney-sounding about this interview and I can’t believe that it’s not her that’s talking. I’m very happy to hear her talking again like a normal person, although I think she’s been doing so for quite awhile now. I also think that hearing her talk about things like how it’s hard to cook, and how it was a challenge teaching her boys potty-training, makes her seem much more real. I do think this is the real Britney talking, for the most part anyhow. I think that it sounds like just the right amount of excitement and glitz, mixed in with the right amount of the real Britney talking about flip flops and coffee. I do agree with Celebitchy on one thing though. The airbrushing job they did on Britney just looks ridiculous.
