For example, in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, Spears describes her perfect day as: "Getting up with coffee -- two cups of coffee. Having a good workout, taking a swim, my boys being there, and just having a good day at the pool -- we have a theme-park slide. We'd have snow cones, then I'd go to the movies and spend time with my boyfriend. Maybe a Femme Fatale moment. [laughs] I'm pretty normal. The type of day I love is just like everybody else's. I'm like everybody else."
Well, Britney's not exactly like everybody else -- most of us don't have a theme-park slide in our backyard -- but she's normal in the sense that she's figured out a way to enjoy life's simple pleasures like, um, when people trip and fall down, which makes her laugh uncontrollably. "Not to be mean, but I can't help it," she admits. "If they really hurt themselves, then I feel bad, but if they accidentally do it and they stand up and act cool like nobody saw them, I have to laugh."

She's also a fan of teen heartthrob Justin Bieber.
"I think he's adorable," she gushes. "I just saw his movie, and I really didn't realize how big he was. He's enormous; he's just Mr. Man. A lot of the movie is really similar to what I did when I was starting out. I did a promo tour for a year, going into radio stations and all that. It was so cool to see our similarities."
But would Brit want her own boys follow in her footsteps? "If they have a love and passion for the arts and that's what they want to do, then so be it," she says. "They are both little actors and so charismatic, I wouldn't be surprised at all."
As for how motherhood has changed her personally, Brit notes it's forced her to grow up. "I think things through a little bit more, and I worry a lot," she says. "I'm more straightforward, and I speak up more than I did before. When I was younger, I wouldn't speak up as much, but now that I'm a mom, things have changed." So would she ever consider getting married again or having more kids? "I've thought about both," Spears confesses. "So if the timing was right ..."
