Britney Spears is on the cover of the December issue of Rolling Stone magazine, out this Friday, and she talked about picking up the pieces after her breakdown, what her life now is like, and about sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2.
On Sean Preston and Jayden who are in preschool now: “Every time they come to visit me, I think about how they’re such special people,” says Spears, who currently sees the boys three days a week, with one overnight stay. “Like, they’re going to preschool now! I went there to pick them up on Friday, and seeing them in their little classroom and seeing Jayden being bad or not listening? It’s like, those are mine, and it’s just crazy, you know what I mean? And the things that are coming out of their mouths right now — they’re learning so much, and it’s new, and you never know what they’re going to say, and they’re so smart yet so innocent. They’re obsessed with monsters, and every night we look outside, and we have to show them that there’s no monsters out there. It’s dark outside, but there’s nothin’ out there, you know?”

On her life not turning out “like she imagined”:“I didn’t think my husband was gonna leave me. Otherwise, I’d be with my babies 24/7. But since they’re almost like twins, they both take care of each other. I think they look like me,” she says, going from affectionate to bitter as she gets distracted by thoughts of Federline, whom she sees only when one of them is picking up the boys. “They don’t look like their father at all,” she continues. “And it’s weird ’cause they’re starting to learn words like ‘stupid,’ and Preston says the f-word now sometimes. He doesn’t get it from us. He must get it from his daddy. I say it, but not around my kids.”
On feeling like an ‘old person’: “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.”
On dating with restrictions, like the dates are supervised by her assistant, Brett, and manager Larry 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.”
