Britney Spears‘ eighth album Britney Jean hits stores today, and the star has been doing a little bit of promo — just a little bit, certainly no performances or anything so brazen as that — but a quick little interview on Ellen? Sure! That’s not unreasonable.
So indeed, Spears stopped by Ellen today to talk about some deeply important things, like her songwriting process (it’s therapeutic!) and how her kids aren’t allowed to say “bitch,” even though it was in the title of her most recent single. Good, good.
Fortunately, if there’s anyone who can coax closed-off circa-2013 Nervous Handsney out of her shell, it’s Ellen, and indeed, the comedienne ekes a laugh or two out of Terseney by asking her a few questions about her romance with beau David Lucado, and it’s sort of a pleasure to see her act human.
Watch her talk about her new album up top, then see her discuss her boyfriend below.
