Britney Spears is the latest pop star to cover Lucky magazine. The Blackout singer wears a perfect polka dot top for the December 2012 issue, which hits newsstands on November 6. Spears has stepped up her style game since joining the judges’ table on The X Factor, so what better place for her than front-and-center on the fashion mag? Below she reveals the best thing about “being Britney Spears,” what her sons think of her fame — and her major fashion secret.
On the greatest thing about being Britney: “I get, like, these giant boxes of lip gloss and nail polish, and it’s like candy.” (We knew it! The free makeup!)
On her style inspirations: Jennifer Lopez because she is “a classic beauty,” and Sarah Jessica Parker because “her looks are really bright and funky and young.”
On how her sons deal with having a pop icon mom: “They’re in the middle right now of trying to figure it out. They try to figure out where I go when I go to film X Factor. They’re like, ‘Mommy’s going off to be a superhero.’ And then I get back, and they just see me as Mommy. And then when I’m back working on the show, they say, ‘Oh, Mommy’s a superhero again!’”
Brit’s big fashion secret?: “I never wear socks. I hate socks.” We hear you!
Would she let her kids get into showbiz?: “If there was something they really wanted to do and were passionate about, I’d encourage them to follow their dreams. But I’d also be there behind the curtain saying, ‘No, don’t go out there.’”
