7 Surprising Revelations About Britney Spears
With the release of her new album, Britney Jean, and her Las Vegas residency about to kick off, Britney Spears is once again in the news. Like you, I thought I knew everything I possibly could about the "Work B--ch" singer, but then I stumbled upon these seven shocking new revelations about Spears that have emerged from her recent spate of interviews and press appearances.
1. She's had lip injections.
I know, it's hard to believe. We all thought Spears was a 100% natural woman, but as shocking as it may seem, it turns out she has been enhanced. In an interview with InStyle for their January 2014 issue, Brit is quoted saying, "A doctor I see, [Beverly Hills plastic surgeon] Dr. [Raj] Kanodia, does fun stuff to me sometimes — I've had lip injections before," Spears said.
2. She loves being pregnant (and it might not be for the reason you think!)
In another shocking revelation from the same interview, Spears says she likes being pregnant! While defending how poor Kim Kardashian had to deal with the heartless paparazzi when she was preggers, Spears dropped a TMI bomb, saying, "I loved being pregnant for some many reasons, not to mention the sex is awesome then."
3. She wants a "mini-me" daughter.
OK, after that last bombshell, this one is a bit of a relief, but it may also leave you with that freaky afterthought. Also from InStyle, Spears — already the mother of two boys — reveals she wants a daughter. "I would really like to have another baby, a girl. I think she would be like a mini-me."
To that disturbing thought, she added, "I think it’s going to be crazy. I’m not going to feel as alone in the world anymore. I’m going to feel like I have a second person, like, that’s me."
Somehow, that doesn't make it feel any better.
4. She calls "Chaotic," her 2005 documentary, "the worst thing she's done."
Poor Kevin Federline. Sure he was married to a pop princess, but now it seems as if he's just connected to bad memories for Spears. Case in point, she does not look back fondly on "Chaotic," the 2005 five-part reality miniseries that chronicled her marriage to Federline.
"I would never do something like that again," Spears told the U.K.'s The Telegraph. "Actually, that was really bad. That was probably the worst thing I’ve done in my career.”
Spears was speaking about "Chaotic," but you have to wonder if she's really taking about K-Fed.
5. She never kissed Ryan Gosling.
Well, big whoop, who said she did? Apparently, Gosling implied that was the case back in April and so Spears felt the need to delve deep into her underage exploits as a member of "The Mickey Mouse Club," during a recent appearance on "Ellen." Seems that Spears was engaged in a game of spin the bottle with Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake. (Take a moment to swoon, ladies and gentlemen who prefer men).
"I did that, but I didn't kiss him though," Spears said. "The only person I kissed was Justin. It never landed on [Gosling]. No, it wasn't just me and [Gosling]." Phew, now we can all rest easy!
6. Justin Timberlake was her first kiss.
While we're on the subject of kissing, we might as well just throw it out there. Justin Timberlake was Spears's first kiss. She made that big reveal back in August during an appearance on "Good Morning America" to announce her Vegas residency. "GMA" weatherman Sam Champion handled the probing interview.
"How old were you when you had your first kiss?" Champion asked.
"Oh god!" Spears responded. "Maybe 13?"
"Do you remember who it was?" Champion probed further.
"It was Justin," she revealed.
I'm speechless. How about you?
7. Her favorite Christmas gift was a go-kart.
'Tis the season and I know you're all wondering what you could get the pop star who has everything? Well, you can't get her anything, because you probably don't know her and you probably wouldn't be able to get a package to her. But, just in case you're wondering, Spears recently revealed her favorite Christmas gift ever in an interview with Ryan Seacrest.
“I think my best Christmas gift I ever got was when my parents surprised me with my go-kart inside my playhouse,” she revealed. ”I had no idea! I got all my gifts for Christmas and I didn’t get the go-kart, so I was a little bummed. So, we went inside my playhouse to put all my gifts inside my playhouse and my go-kart was in there. I was so excited! I was ecstatic.”
And, so are we!
