Britney Spears debuted her Britney: Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Friday night. She wrote via Instagram: “Ahhhh another amazing audience tonight! Vegas, thanks for making me feel at home.” In her interview with Britain’s The Telegraph - the singer talks about the Las Vegas residency, her mom, and her two boys.
On her mom Lynne: My mom is a wonderful woman. She’s always been an inspiration to me, but having kids helped me make even more sense of my relationship with her. My sons [Sean] Preston and Jayden are eight and seven now – and not only do I find myself doing some of the things my mom used to do, I also understand why she did them.”
On one of her sons getting shy at a film premiere: “That was Preston – he’s kind of shy. I kind of keep them in their world – their kid world, away from the limelight. I feel that’s a different side of me. ’Cos, you know, it’s a lot to deal with. For a lot of people. Especially if you’re shy, like my boys, it can be overwhelming.”
On Vegas: “Vegas is definitely a new challenge. But I wanted to be able to put on a different type of show. You get to do so much more when you don’t have to put your stage in trucks after the show every night – we got to build a venue specifically for my show. It’s going to be more like a party than a typical concert.”
