Britney Spears: 'I'm pretty normal'

Britney Spears claims she is "pretty normal".

The 29-year-old singer - who endured a public breakdown in January 2008 and has been under the conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears ever since - admitted despite her public persona, she is "just like everybody else".

She said: "I'm pretty normal, you know? Like I said, the type of day I love is just like everybody else's. I'm like everybody else."

The 'Till The World Ends' hitmaker - who has two sons, Sean Preston, five, and Jayden James, four, with ex-husband Kevin Federline - also revealed while she worries a lot more since becoming a mother, she would be keen to expand her brood "if the timing was right".

She told Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I think things through a little bit more, and I worry a lot. I'm more straightforward, and I speak up more than I did before. When I was younger, I wouldn't speak up as much, but now that I'm a mom, things have changed.

"I've thought about both, so if the timing was right."

Britney explained both her sons are already "little actors" and so she wouldn't be opposed to letting them follow a career in the music or film industry when they get older.

She added: "If they have a love and passion for the arts and that's what they want to do, then so be it. They are both little actors and so charismatic, I wouldn't be surprised at all."
