In the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar, pop sensation Britney Spears not only lands on the mag’s  high profiled cover, but the platinum selling diva opens up about her storied career, preparing for her highly anticipated upcoming tour, motherhood, and much much more!

Check out a few excerpts from her cover story below:

On the success of her new album Femme Fatale: “I’ve worked so hard on this album, so it’s really refreshing.”

On preparing for her upcoming tour: “I love to dance, so it’s very exciting. The tour rehearsals have been going really well. I think it will be my best show yet.”

On how being a mom affected how she approaches her career: “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.”

On what people don’t know about her: “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.”
