In anticipation for her 7th studio album, ‘Femme Fatale’, later this month, Britney Spears has kicked off her promotional efforts (not that she needs much promotion) by lining up a list of interviews and performances. Her first stop? ‘American Idol’ host turned media mogul Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
She sat down with Seacrest to discuss her forthcoming album , new music, touring, boyfriend Jason Trawick and working with other artists.
Here are some bits and pieces of the inteview.
On new album:
“It’s, I think, my best work yet. I love the album, I actually listened to it on the way over here. It’s definitely something that you want to work out to. It’s definitely upbeat. Will.i.am’s on the record and I’m a dancer so it’s definitely something I can work with. It’s just really fun, it’s a really really fun record.”
On topping her previous work:
“A lot of the people that I worked on this record with, Max Martin, I’ve worked with him on several of my albums and so I love working with him. I stick to a genre of people that I’ve worked with for a while. And then I actually experiment as well, so I experimented working with Will.i.am and stuff like that, so that’s kind of how I work.”
On working with Will.i.am:
“Oh my God, he’s amazing! He’s so much fun and he’s funny and he’s a charm. I love him, he’s great. I love the Black Eyed Peas so when they told me I’d be working with him I was just like ‘oh my God, I can’t wait!’”
On singing with other artists on the album:
“There’s a girl named Sabi that I’m working with, and she’s someone I’ve been wanting to work with for a while.”
Her favorite song on the album:
“Til The World Ends’ is fun. I like it. It’s just good energy.”
On what she looks for in a successful song:
I’m a vibe person, I love ‘good mood’ songs and if it puts me in a good mood, it clicks for me.”
On touring for her new album:
“Yes, I’m supposed to be going on tour.” Her manager Larry Rudolph added, ”early summer.”
