Photos and Quotes From Britney Spears' Glamour Magazine Interview

Britney Gets Glamorous Yet Says She's Boring

Britney Spears looks fresh-faced and golden on the January cover of Glamour magazine, as we get to see the results of her Patrick Demarchelier photo shoot. The singer was back to performing on stage this weekend and as everyone buzzes about whether Britney's back to her old self, the singer talks about her life and how she wants her future to end up. Here's more:

  • On her come back: "I have 'come back' so many times, people are just like, Is this another one?... It’s kind of like a joke to me now."
  • On a misconception about her: "I don’t like going out. I hate clubs. I hate being around too many people. I love my home and staying in bed and watching Dancing With the Stars or reading a Danielle Steel novel. I’m kind of boring."
  • On where she wants to be in 5 or 10 years: "I would love to have a lot of albums under my belt. And a couple of movies….In five years I would like to be married and have a father figure for my kids, someone who is a provider and can be really stable."

It's Britney overload whether you want it or not — between the magazine covers, MTV documentary last night, and GMA birthday appearance tomorrow, lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree on Wednesday and who knows what else is in store for us. In the meantime, click to see the full photo gallery as well as behind-the-scenes footage from her shoot.

So many ppl are criticizing her for wanting to marry someone who would be a father figure to her kids and I just don't get why that is wrong. To me it means that she will always put her kids first, even when she is looking for love. She wants to make sure that whoever she ends up with will be good for the kids, hence will be a father figure. She will definitely won't want to marry somebody who is crappy with kids even if she is madly in love with him. So to me, her saying that only goes to shows that her kids is the most important thing in her life.

father figure? oh god. not saying kfed is really a gem, but how would she feel if he said he was looking for another mother for them??

I think she needs to see a phychiatrist if she loved her kids and want them to get out of this storm then she needs to help herself first, performing and singing may help other people resolve their issues but for Britney its too late she's too far gone, i don't see her being as good as she was in all aspects of life when she was younger. If she doesn't get help then she will always be "off" her performances will continue to be mediocure, eventually people will stop feeling sorry for her and forget about Britney spears and she will be a washed up nobody. I give her 10 years. She will go back to her old ways.

It was sad when her dad was crying during this shoot and told her how pretty she looked! I'm sure he's seen her come a long way in the past year. The documentary made me feel sad for her but hopefully one day she will feel 'free' again!

There's no question in my mind that Britney only holds it together because her father is propping her up and everyone else around her. I think given the chance she would go back to her mixed up ways if he removed himself from the picture. The Britney you see in these pictures (which are quite pretty) is not the real Britney in my opinion. Just goes to show you that you can look like you've got it together and be quite miserable. She doesn't seem to know what she wants. Thank goodness for Kevin, when she was going crazy, literally he was the glue that held things together.

she looks really lovely, i don't think she was THAT bad on the x factor, yea she mimed but she was smiling all the way through and if that was you up there on your first come back to that country after you know you've been slated in the media really badly, coz i know our media is the harshest in the world basically, then id be pretty apprehensive as well, i just think she was a bit nervous so needed a back up this time. good on her for getting back so quick after all the crap shes had slung her way l8ly.

I would think moving away from LA and just flying in to see her boys (annoying I know)would be totally worth it if it meant she could get out of that crazy storm for a just bit...that and a routine therapy session but hopefully she's already doing that.

I don't believe that she doesn't like to go out to the clubs. She said in the doc that she was lonely so she would go to clubs to be around people (which is also what Lindsay Lohan said). And yes, she doesn't sound very intelligent when she speaks but she was always kind of a redneck, she just controlled it better when she was younger. She is funny though.

I felt really bad for Britney after watching the documentary, but it seems even more clear now that she is not ready to be by herself even though she wants to be "free." She still seems vey "off." I have to say, I wouldn't trade lives with her for a second...the lack of privacy would be too much to handle and she still seems to have some deep psychological issues. I think some people are misinterpreting her statements about wanting a "father figure." I don't think it was a dig at Kevin, she was just saying she would like to be with a stable man so her kids will have a paternal presence when they are with her. Britney's dad can't live with her forever. By the way, she said the reason why she still lives in LA is because her "babies' daddy" lives there, otherwise she said she would like to live in NYC or Miami (she said this in the documentary). Kevin could move, but he has two other children who live in LA too.

I just hope she keeps things together, I hate that she's so hopefully one day she can live her life the way she wants yet in a nondestructive way. But she does look pretty here.

I can't recall a time when she didn't sound like a 15 year old. Kevin has 100% custody, she gets a couple of SUPERVISED visits with her kids, and that's only because she is in a conservatorship herself. Seems dubious she could get anything more than 50% custody, if even that, five years from now.

I watched parts of the documentary. I agree -- she is troubled and unhappy. Personally, I really like her as an artist and performer. I hope she finds happiness and peace.

p.s.- Did anyone else notice that she sounded like a 15 yr old talking...I think all her troubles really have made her regress. Poor brit brit

I watched the documentary and just ended up feeling incredibly sad for her. She seems so... empty/off. I also agree w/ everyone's comments, she clearly needs to get away from LA and move somewhere where she can rebuild quietly and calmly. I'm not sure going on tour to support her new album is the best idea right now but oh well.

she chose him though, everyone but her saw that he was probably just in it to spend her money, it's no one's fault but her own that she's so desperate for love and fairy tale marriage that she chooses losers. Kevin might not be the perfect father but he is the one that has the more custody of the two.

I don't think Kevin's the model father he makes out to be. Remember all those rumors of cheating & partying while they were married? He put her through the ringer and bled her financially and they were only married 2 YEARS! I can understand what she talking about when she talks about the man she wants. It sounds like she wants the opposite of Kevin and more like her Dad who is stable and has always been there for her. And has HIS OWN career and not marrying her to leech off of her in hopes of a career steps. I was never a fan but I feel sorry for her and can see how she went off the deep end and I'm now rooting for her because she IS trying so hard to get her life back on track. Unlike some other celebs.

I think the party girl thing is a big of a misconception, because she never before her divorce partied like she did then. She did a bit after Justin breakup, but nothing serious. It's good she's over it. I got over clubs a few years ago. I also don't think she's bashing Kevin. If anything she wants to find a guy who can be a good role model to her kids. Isn't that what any mother wants? Step-parents are just as important as real parents.
