Britney talks to iHeartRadio

Britney spoke to iHeartRadio ahead of their festival this weekend, talking about meeting her fans (“I meet like 30 to 40 people every night. They come in, I say hello to them, and we take pictures and they show me their tattoos, and they show me all these different things and it’s cool. It’s really fun. There’s a lot of regulars that come back every week!”), her app to connect with fans (“With my app that I’m coming out with soon, there’s a lot of skits and a lot of interaction with the fans where I actually ask them questions and bring them into the situation so we can have some kind of connection going on”) and who she is looking forward to seeing at the festival (“I love Sam Hunt. I can’t wait to see him perform. I think my heart melts for him and probably Sting – I absolutely love Sting and twentyonepilots. Those are my three favourites!”).

NME’s Nick Levine talks to Britney ahead of Apple Music Festival

Britney Spears doesn’t have a squad like Taylor Swift. Or a name for her fans like Ariana Grande (Arianators) and Katy Perry (KatyCats). Or a history of complaining about doing meet-and-greets with fans, like Justin Bieber. Or a list of beefs she’s had, even though she broke up with fellow pop superstar Justin Timberlake in 2002.

It’s hard, too, to imagine anyone doing a Kim and Kanye style takedown of her, because it’s just not how she goes about her business. The 34-year-old is a pop star from another era, but still the biggest of them all. And in 2016, 18 years since her debut single, still so famous that even if you’ve never heard a Britney album you’ll know her lyrics – “Oh baby baby, how was I supposed to know?”; “I’m not that innocent” – and remember her best looks. Everyone recalls her as an air hostess in 2003s “Toxic” video, draping a snake over her shoulders at the 2001 VMAs or dressing up as a schoolgirl in the video for “…Baby One More Time”. As Lana Del Rey put it in 2012: “I’m not interested in a ton of female musicians, but something about Britney compels me – the way she sings and just the way she looks.” She’s got it. She’s a pop star who inspires devotion and obsession, whose fans call her Godney and The Holy Spearit.

Down the phone from Las Vegas – where her Britney: Piece Of Me residency has been running since December 2013 – she explains how she feels about those nicknames. It must be weird being called Godney, right? “Yeah! But that’s just how the fans are – and I don’t want to let them down. At the end of the day, we’re all human and we all make mistakes. It’s really flattering but I don’t know if I can set my bar that high. I mean, I’m sure a lot of them have almost felt like they’ve grown up with me you know?”

Britney appears on cover of “NME” UK

Britney will appear on “NME” magazine UK tomorrow, with an interview in support of her Apple Music festival appearance. The magazine is available free from HMV and music stores across the UK.

In the interview, Britney said: “I try not to analyse my success too much. I love what I do and I think that helps because it speaks for itself when I perform. Seeing other artists continue to do this kind of thing inspires me too. Because sometimes I’m like, “What am I doing? Like, I could be a teacher. But then I see other people doing it too and I’m like, “Well, you know, it’s probably all they’ve known for so long, so it just kind of makes sense”.”

On “Glory” she said: “Honestly, this is the first project where I’ve really been hands-on. I was really specific about who I worked with and I’ve been learning to say no. I’m a people-pleaser, so that’s hard for me – even if I don’t like something, I’ll do it just to make a person happy. I made sure this album was everything I wanted it to be. I was really selfish with it.’

On her fans, she said: “That’s just how the fans are – and I don’t want to let them down. At the end of the day, we’re all human and we all make mistakes. It’s really flattering, but I don’t know if I can set my bar that high. I’m sure a lot of them have almost felt like they’ve grown up with me.”

“Mood Ring” lyrics

Lyrics to the “Glory” Japanese bonus track, “Mood Ring,” have been added here. The song was produced by DJ Mustard and co-written by Jon Asher and Melanie Fontana.

Melanie said of the track: “We were writing it for Britney from the beginning. Whether or not it got cut by Britney, we were not sure at that moment, but we were writing it from the perspective. By the way, we’re diehard fans — like childhood on, all the way on up. I think he and I both have a great channel for Britney, just because we’re superfans. That’s how the start was birthed. We love how Britney’s gone through all her phases, and hair colours, and literally, like, mood swings. Her whole life is like a mood ring.

“Mustard delivered it to Britney. I wish that I had some sort of part of that, but it had nothing to do with me at all. Our sound was just so perfect for her — it was a no brainer when he gave it to Larry Rudolph. We were told by the head of A&R, Karen Kwak, that it was her favorite song, initially. It was her favorite song. Over and over again, this is what we kept hearing. She felt the most connected to it of all the songs, which is why we were so surprised when we found out it was just on the Japanese edition.”
