Despite being one of the best selling artists of all time, Britney Spears still becomes a nervous wreck when it comes to dating. The stunning singer, who covers this months issue of Marie Claire opened up to the magazine about her dating life and how a date to the movies went terribly.
“I had a really bad date,” she said. “I mean, it was really bad. I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me. In the evening I got on the scales and I had lost six pounds.” [She continues] “We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward. So after the movie I came home and that was it. It just didn’t work […] He just wasn’t that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same. It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different.”
However, the Love Me Down singer revealed she feels more comfortable in her skin now than ever:
“I moved to Los Angeles when I was very young,” she said. “I was so under scrutiny. If a hair was out of place, I’d be so anxious. I would get very anxious about so many things.” But being a mom helped calm her nerves. “Becoming a mother and being with my boys has made me so much more accepting of myself. I’m their mom, whatever. That has been a really big thing for me over these last few years.”
