Taking care of her boys...
In an interview with Billboard, Britney Spears said that while at home she feels like a "crazy mom".
She said she has to balance her international singing career with taking care of her sons Sean (age 8) and Jayden (age 7).
She said: "Once you've done a shoot ... you have to come in and do homework and fix dinner twice and it's a lot of work. But I think as women we just manage it, we make it work."
She revealed that she worked hard with her fitness trainer to get in shape for the music video for "Work Bitch", with only two or three small meals a day. She did say she had food cravings before the shoot and admitted: "I love to eat my popcorn at night!"
She said the first thing she ate after the shoot was "Just chocolate, chocolate, chocolate."
The song is the first single from her eighth album Britney Jean, which is the name her family calls her. She added it's her most personal album so far. It was produced by will.i.am and Spears co-wrote every song. There is even a song about her split with Jason Trawick in January.
She said: "I think it will make girls not feel alone in this situation. When they're alone in their room and they broke up with their boyfriend, they have a song they can go to and listen to, just makes them feel better about themselves."
She's also working on her Las Vegas residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino called "Britney: Piece of Me". She will perform fifty shows in two years. She has a vocal coach to make her voice stronger for the show. While the process is "grueling", she said she can't wait for it.
She added: "I know I'll be nervous, but I'm going to be excited, too. It's going to be cool."
Finally, she said it's a good time for women in pop music, with Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Taylor Swift. She said: "There's so many strong, powerful women in pop music culture today."
The album will be out on December 3. Her stage show begins on December 27.
