We need therapy as we get older...
In an interview with The Las Vegas Review Journal, Britney Spears said that as she gets older she likes to share personal experiences with others for therapeutic reasons. Here are highlights:
On her onstage persona: "Know what it is? It's kind of like meditation and like a prayer. When you do any type of performance that you do and really feel the character. It's why we do what we do because we love doing that. I think artists get off on that. It's really fun when you find it and you go there. That's when you have your best performances. It's something that I strive for every day."
On her music becoming more personal: "I have been through a lot in the past few years and it has really inspired me to dig deeper and write songs that I think everyone can relate to. As we're older, we're more open to share our personal experiences with people. We don't take things too seriously and it's more of a therapeutic thing to do that. As we get older, we need therapy. So I think it's a really good transition for me."
On planning her future: "Unfortunately I've set the bar kind of high for myself. I kind of compete with myself and my past stuff and my past work and the way I looked and the way I did things is really top-notch. I really don't see how I did it. It's just something I have to meditate on every day and really go for it. I have to kind of unfortunately keep that ideal of myself, because as a performer that's what people expect of me. I have to try and deliver that."
