Britney will feature on the front cover of the next USA edition of “OK!” magazine, featuring an exclusive glamous spread, and interview, where she opens up about her marriage and the impending birth of her second child. “This is a lot better than the first one,” she says, as well as revealing that she’d like to have three ‘boo-boos’ in total. Britney also dismisses the notion that her husband Kevin isn’t happy about their growing brood. At first, “he was a little shocked,” she admits, but shares that she and Kevin are thoroughly excited about the welcome addition.
A clip of a new song called “Rebellion” has been posted on Britney’s official web site. The lyrics are “you’ll find it in rebellion, you’ll finally start breathing, they’re not believing what they’re seeing, ’cause you’re rebelling.”
One of Britney Spears’ songs is called “Do Somethin’,” and that’s just what a defiant Britney Spears set out to do in a Dateline interview broadcast Thursday – and she’s taking on the tabloids.

As a mother I have to speak up and say something. I have to speak up.

In other parts of the interview, she discusses her relationship with Justin Timberlake, her short marriaged to Jason Alexander, “Chaotic,” the names people call her in the media (“I think it’s sad when people put labels on you, but at the end of the day it’s just words”), the people who think Kevin isn’t good enough for her (“I love him, that’s all that matters”), the ‘scandals’ regarding Sean Preston, and breaks down crying when discussing the media intrusion in her life.
In another segement of her interview with Matt Lauer, Britney was presented with magazine headlines; clarifying that Perry, “her new man,” is her security guard, and that Kevin is helping her out, as her hormones are all over the place because of her pregnancy. She concluded, “You know what? I need to create my own magazine. These people… I mean they want stories to sell and they’re very good… I need to come up with my own magazine and say the real deal.” On why she is in love with Kevin, she said, “It’s very simple. Women complicate everything. He’s so simple. His simplicity and just he’s like a boy. He just, you know, and he cares. He cares so much and his heart is awesome. He has a really big heart and I love that.” Asked about the incident a few weeks ago, when it seemed she nearly fell over whilst holding Sean Preston, she said, ” Accidents happen. There will be an “Oops!… #100.” There’ll be plenty more oopses. I’m not perfect. I’m human.”
Britney has spoken to NBC’s Matt Lauer, in an exclusive interview to be aired on this Thursday’s editions of “The Today Show” and “Dateline,” about the constant rumours about her marriage to Kevin and the paparazzi intrusion into her private life. “I think 90% of the world would agree that the tabloids have gone a bit far with me lately. You try not to respond to trash, because that’s what it is, but I think they’ve crossed the line a little bit. I can’t go anywhere without anyone judging me,” she told Lauer, adding that her marriage to Kevin is “awesome,” and scrutiny from the paparazzi has made her an “emotional wreck.”

I actually like Britney a lot. She’s very sweet – no ego. Even though there’s a lot going on around her, she let me go in and do what I do.

Britney is a great woman and mother. who is just trying to live her life.”
Kevin has done an exclusive interview with “Details” magazine, including a photoshoot featuring a radical makeover, speaking out against the tabloid intrusion and more. He said, on the media and rumours, “I should just put a bullseye on my back. If I stay home and take care of my wife and my kids, then I’m a loafer, not a good father. If I try to have a career, nobody thinks I am caring for my family. I can’t win. You’ll never see that guy they say cheats or goes partying all the time. If I’m there and I’m out at a club, I am there for a reason. I am not there to mingle with women.”
