Britney Spears has changed a lot over the years, but nothing changed her quite like her two boys, Sean Preston, 11, and Jayden, 10.
"[Motherhood] has taught me how to put others' needs ahead of my own. My sons are my most precious gift, and I always want to do right by them," she said in the new issue of Vegas Player magazine.
Certainly a hands-on mom, the singer not only raises her kids, but she has said she also gets their opinions on her career. They currently "comment the most" on her song "Wanna Come Over," she told the publication.
Perhaps it's no surprise that her kids have very strong opinions about things. Sean, she told 92.3 AMP Radio on Aug. 30, actually named her album "Glory."
"He was in the process of me recording. Anything I'd bring home, he'd be like, 'Oh, Mom, that's cool.' [Or] 'No, Mom, that's really bad. I don't like that. I don't like that at all.' He actually didn't like 'Make Me…' in the beginning," she said, but added that he had a big impact on her album.
"He's the one who named my album," she revealed. "He was like, 'Mom, I think you should call your album Glory.' It's cool though because he's young and he knows. As I teach them, they teach me as well."
Sean and Jayden certainly have an eye for creativity, and when asked by Vegas Player whether she saw them following in her footsteps, she didn't totally dismiss the idea.
"We'll see!" she says. "They're both really into DJ'ing right now."
While her boys discover their personalities and identities as they get older, Britney said she, too, has learned a lot about herself from fighting through adversity.
"I've learned to always be true to yourself," she says. "I try not to do anything in my personal and professional life that isn't organic to who I am."
Aside from motherhood, the music trendsetter's focus these days is often centered on her Las Vegas show, "Piece of Me," a pop music spectacle that regularly sells out and is one of the Las Vegas Strip's most in-demand shows.
That particular show currently features songs from her new album. Soon, though, it could be featuring even more new songs -- perhaps sooner rather than later.
"I'm not sure what I want the next album to sound like," she said. "I just know that I'm excited to get into the studio again and actually have already been back recording."
