Britney Spears,spirit animal to everyone’s favorite twerking ingenue, has made a triumphant return to pop music with the global success of her latest single “Work Bitch” and a just-announced two-year residency titled “Piece Of Me” at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. She took a brief respite to talk to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show about her yet-to-be-titled eighth studio album, moving her family to Las Vegas and a crazy, nauseating helicopter ride. Listen to the interview below.
To announce “Piece Of Me,” Britney, in grand fashion, was helicoptered to a remote location in the desert where fans created a huge mosaic of Brit’s visage from thousands of poster cards. But she almost gave the fans more than they bargained for thanks to a rocky ride:
“They said it would be a 10-to-15 minute ride and we get up there and it was 50 minutes! And I’m a horrible flyer and then at one point we couldn’t circle anymore.” Brit said. “We had to stay in one place so we could shoot the people and the helicopter kept dropping and going lower, so I just got really, really nauseated and I thought I was going to throw up on everybody. It was really embarrassing! I was like, ‘Oh god! You’ve got to get me on the ground now!’”
