“My sons are 6 and 7, so they’re just now getting to the stage of where you can’t kiss mommy in front of your friends and all that kind of stuff,” the popstar, 31, revealed. “They’re getting what’s cool and what’s not.”
Britney recorded Ooh La La for the Smurfs 2 soundtrack, and included her boys in the music video.
“The main reason why I did it was because my boys. They’re obsessed with The Smurfs,” Britney said. “We’ve seen The Smurfs movie a million, trillion times and they were told they could be in the video.”
The singer said her boys were “really, really good” during the music video shoot. “My oldest son, Preston, was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something,” the proud mom gushed.
“They play themselves,” she added. “But when we did the actual shoot of the video, I didn’t see them. I was in hair and makeup, so later on I got to see what they actually did on camera — and it was adorable!”
In terms of her follow-up album to 2011’s Femme Fatale, Britney said she’s taking her time.
“It’s definitely at the beginning stages right now,” she said of her eighth studio album. “But I want to definitely take this album and have a new approach with it and make it a little different than anything I’ve ever done.”
In addition to teaming up with will.i.am, Britney is working with one music’s top producers.
“William Orbit is coming in to town next week for me to work with,” she said of the hit maker, who has collaborated with Madonna. “I’ve never worked with him before so I’m really, really excited [and I hope to release new music] by the end of the year.”
