Brit Brit Talks To Rolling Stone!

It's fascinating to hear her talk so in detail about the entire production! Makes you realize just how much of the creative process comes down to her!

Britney Spears recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone Magazine about her PHENOMONAL new album, Femme Fatale, and discusses not only her influences this time around, the recording process, working again with producers Max Martin and Dr. Luke, but also the artists that she's rawking out to on her own time!

Here are some HIGHlights:

On her influences for Femme Fatale:

When we first sat down to talk about Femme Fatale I knew I wanted to make a dance album that was ahead of everything else out there but unique to me which is why I was so picky with the recording process. I only wanted songs that I immediately connected to. I also wanted to make sure that this album was completely different from Circus or anything else I had ever recorded. I love Circus but I wanted something darker and edgier. I also wanted to make an album and didn't want to just record a bunch of songs and put them together. I think Femme Fatale is really connected from start to finish.

I have always been heavily involved in every album I have ever made. I'm very stubborn when it comes to recording and will only record songs I love, which is why it takes me a long time to make an album. I have to feel connected before I record and the song has to spark something inside me. Very few songs do that. I guess it's a good process because I love all of my music. I know there are a lot of artists that hate songs they recorded. I don’t feel that way.

I wanted to make a fresh-sounding album for the clubs or something that you play in your car when you're going out at night that gets you excited but I wanted it to sound different from everything else out right now. I also wanted to experiment with all the different types of music I love which is why you hear a mixture of pop, hip-hop and dance throughout the album. I also really wanted to play with my voice and change up my sound here and there which was really fun.

I listen to a lot of different music from all over the world and I guess I just gravitate towards what sounds fresh and what makes me want to move. I really didn’t want to record anything on this album that could be mistaken for anyone else out there. I think my first two singles, “Hold It Against Me” and “Till The World Ends,” sound completely different from anything else and I think when my fans hear the rest of Femme Fatale they'll see how fresh every song is.

On Dr. Luke:

We have known each other for a really long time. Most people don't know this but we actually worked together when I was recording “Blackout.” He was incredible back then and he has only gotten better over the years.

On Max Martin:

Max played a huge role on this album and he has been there since the beginning so there is such a huge level of trust. He gets exactly what I am saying when I tell him what I want and don’t want musically. His melodies are incredible and he is always coming up with weird sounds, which I love. The whistle on "I Wanna Go" still gets me every time I hear it. Who would have thought of that? There is nobody I feel more comfortable collaborating with in the studio.

What she's listening to now:

I love the Peas but I also love Deadmau5. I guess I’m all over the place. Lately I have been listening to Robyn and Adele non-stop but I also love to find new artists that very few people know about. It's one of my favorite things to do because it's like being part of a secret. Friends and people around me are always showing me new artists that they love and that's how I learned about Sabi and ended up working with her on “(Drop Dead) Beautiful.” I have always wanted to feature a new artist on one of my albums and she is really cool.

Amazing!

It sounds as though a lot of thought, care, and creativity were put in by all parties to ensure that the album was a success, and we think that it shows all the way through!

We couldn't be more thrilled with the direction she took!

Congratulations, gurl! Can't wait for the official release!

    gurl? fucking douche. And this is pop music, how fucking good could it be. Only the flamboyant gay's fall all over themselves for this shit, the rest of us just get queezy.

    I think britney is sweet, but Max Martin and Dr. Luke write and produce EVERYBODY'S pop music. Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Britney, Pink, Celine Dion. When it comes to song writing, it's shocking how some "artists" take full credit. Celine, Kelly and Pink can at least sing and Kelly and Pink have written their own music, or at least lyrics at times. But come on - Britney, Katy they're all the same. MM and Dr. Luke must be laughing all the way to the bank . . .

    i love you Britney!

    bullshit - she can't tell me she loves "still a girl, not yet a woman" or "lucky"…………talk about pointless songs………….

    I love how she was so heavily involve with this album. that she basically ordered her producers what sound she wanted and she wanted this and that on the songs I am not sure why britney isn't given credit as co- producer. since what she describe on her songs. for example saying she discovers new songs and she want this sound on this song and more touches and gives directions too the producers. britney should be given credit for producing music. producing music is more than just making a beat.



  8. 8

    I did not read a word of the article you posted. I can' believe this crazy skank can put 3 words together. Koo Koo Koo



  9. 9

    britney loves deadmau5!! we are on the same page!!!!



  10. 10

    Only gulible sheeple believe the corporate controlled puppet has any input.



  11. 11

    How can you say that she was heavily involved when she hasn't written or produced anything? I'm more creative than her when I do karaoke..
    And as for it not sounding like anything out there? It sounds like EVERYTHING else out there!There is absolutely nothing about this album that is unique or original at all, which isn't surprising considering that every pop artist out there is working with the same producers and writers.
    I love Britney and I wish her nothing but the best, but lets not pretend she's something she's not.



  12. 12

    was this interview emailed?? it doesn't sound like her.

    Re: Edgenet – stfu.. dont call her a skank.. she has more morals than u hun ;) stop looking through foggy glass cause ur the one who works the streets



  14. 14

    I'm surprised this quack actually likes deadmau5….



  15. 15

    OMG stop with the airbrushing!!!!!! This doesn't even look like her. A better message to girls who follow her would be …. lay off the false image … let a photograph stand for itself without all the airbrusing!!!!



  16. 16

    talentless fat crack whore!



  17. 17

    She likes Deadmau5? I love that guy….he is GOD!!!!! I got an early copy of Femme Fatale, it reminds me of Blackout. It's a good album but it isn't at the Blackout level.



  18. 18

    Hr OUT magazine interview was emailed. I' not suprised this interview was emailed as well. She is NOT doing her own interviews anymore.



  19. 19

    there is NOTHING dark on that album. BLACKOUT is a dark album but FEMME FATALE is even more HAPPY POP that CIRCUS



  20. 20

    Re: TIMMO – Your a fucking retard. More morals???? yeah, that bitch has seen more random cock than a bar room urinal on a busy saturday night.



  21. 21

    Re: jham – Couldn't have said it any better.



  22. 22

    Sounds like a bunch of memorized buzz lines. There is NOTHING fresh about her "music". It's the same ol' canned auto tune crap. And that is the problem with Britney now. She does nothing new and inspiring anymore. I'm surprised she remembers anything about making Blackout.



  23. 23

    LOVE BRITNEY

    Mmm… I just wonder why she doesn´t sound that coherent in her speaking interviews..hehe..for example -in her last one with Secreast …

    she could not even tell what her songs were about there..just repeated over and over the same shit: "awesome…cool ..amazing " to every question …

    it gave an impression that she cannot really put the words together or have any but banal boring answers
    …and now this…haha… I am suspicious…do they edit her?



  25. 25

    who would have thought of the whistleing, hmm i don't know NEWTON (spanish band). Hello total rip off of their song Streamline. she is full of shit and whatever Dr. Luke and Max Martin come up with is so unoriginal and boring. this albums sucks. such a horrible excuse for a comeback album. that's why the singles are tanking. can't wait for Born This Way.



  26. 26

    Re: hoochpit – asswipe speak for yourself. i'm gay and i illegally downloaded the album and i regret it, even after GETTING IT FOR FREE. i can't wait for Gaga's though. it is really bad the only good songs are I Wanna Go (but that gets old FAST) and Seal It With a Kiss (my fav). but that is it.



  27. 27

    lmao love the comments by the delusional Brit fans. ahahah yeah i bet they still think that because she executively produced Blackout it means she made the instrumentals. Britney fans are the dumbest bunch.



  28. 28

    Re: Merab – they probably did. everyone knows RollingStones, MTV, and BillBoard are her bitches. they will tell you how amazing her music is even if it is just a recording of her taking a shit. she is a critic's darling. the album sucked. and i am not just saying it cause im a Brit "hater" i can admit when something is good. and this sin't.



  29. 29

    ok so i didn't read the article before i started bashing her. but she has got to be delusional. really? Till The World Ends sounds different from everything else out there? HONEY IT'S WRITTEN BY KESHA AND DR. LUKE AND PRODUCED BY HIM!!!! IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS EVERYTHING OUT THERE. oh goodness i think she still needs mental help.



  30. 30

    what a beautifully photoshopped pic.



  31. 31

    lol

    deluded much?

    her album doesnt sound original at all. Its pure europop.

    and til the world ends sounds EXACTLY like Kesha.



  32. 32

    I finally heard the whole album and I totally understand what she means that the album is connected. It's so amazing!!! Love Brit!

    Not here to say anything bad about Brit, but I got kinda annoyed reading this. the answers were emailed in cause they werent *put* together by her. Compare this with her actual vocal interview on Seacrest. Im sure she has comments in the studio, but she just shows up & records her voice in the way the vocals were sung for her in the demo tracks. The songs are put together for her before she lays her vocals over them. If she were this involved she would actually write & attempt composing melodies. I like Britney, but as soon as you try to call her this huge original innovator & say she's THIS involved it's just insulting to the industry for artists that are actually involved. I grew up with this girls music & I will always like her. But Britney did not create her sound, Max Martin & Dr. Luke did & she has not one songwriting credit here. They say how involved she "was" & what she "wanted" to sound like but did none of the actual work to find or create to get there. I heard the whole album & I like it, will buy it. Just saying there's a line that should be drawn for reality sake & for the artists that are truly involved in every process. Hopefully Brit fans don't take this the wrong way. I like her but you have to keep it real.

    How dare she say that she's really involved in the process of making her next record when she NEVER writes her own songs and the only little thing she does - sing the vocals exactly like they're sung in the demo - has to be autotuned beyond recognition because the poor girl can't sing at all? The popularity of this talentless little girl never fails to astound me.



  35. 35

    I have the album and it is exactly how she explained! It's her best album because it sounds nothing like the other albums and you can tell there's some, not a lot, but some progress with her vocals. I really love this CD and the sound of it. Really great production and great JOB over all! PICK IT UP! It's gonna be worth it!



  36. 36

    C'mon, even I own a few of Britney's music, so I'm not completely hating, but it's not like she's making some opus here. This is no PET SOUNDS or SGT PEPPERS or even a DUSTY IN MEMPHIS. It's still characteristic of every overproduced dance music Britney has put out.

  37. Bytch says – reply to this


    37

    She has zero writing credit on all tracks on this album. This girl can't pen a word, create a beat, sing a note, dance a step and people still buy it. I buy it. But its Britney's face on other people's good work. The fact that she happens to like it doesn't make her a creator of anything. She's a fucking tool.



  38. 38

    never writes? never produces? bitches please. get informed right now!
    all producers that have worked with britney had said how much in control she is, but britney doesnt like taking all the credit to herself. even keri hilson denied all the rumors saying she was a puppet.

    she co wrote 8 out of 13 songs from in the zone album. and she produced the melody on everytime. she wrote someday i will understand and produced the melody as well. she wrote mona lisa and came up for the concept for the song

    she co wrote many songs from her britney album as well.

    she came up with the original doll which she announced and her own project but then was thrown out since she was doing things behind jives back so jives came up with blackout and she remain executive producer.



  39. 39

    LOL!!!!! "IM HEAVILY INVOLVED WITH THIS ALBUM" HAHAHAHAHA THAT'S WHY THERE WERE 36 WRITERS AND 19 PRODUCERS AND SHE'S NOT ONE OF THEM!!???? YOU ARE A PERFORMER, AND A STUDIO ARTIST, IT'S A GOOD THING YOUR MUSIC'S FUN, AND YOU HAVE A CIRCUS OF WRITERS AND PRODUCERS FOR YOU! FEMME FATALE IS GOOD, BUT IT'S LIKE KE$HA OR THE BLACK EYED PEA'S, AUTO-TUNED TO THE LIMIT! THIS ISN'T ORIGINAL BRITNEY.



  40. 40

    This interview is a joke! LOL I NEED TO VENT! Britney is false advertisement! LOL she sits back and pays Max Martin and Dr. Luke money to write her hit songs then tours around the world and lip-syncs them, she can’t even lip-sync live on Good Morning America, It’s being pre-recorded HAHAHAHAFemme Fatale is not AHEAD of anything out there now, you mimicked the current trend of artists like Ke$ha (writer of Till The World Ends) and The Black Eyed Pea’s (Writers of Big Fat Bass). Your “picky” and heavily involved” with the recording process and your albums? You mean all the song’s people write and produce for you? 35 writers and 18 producers on "FEMME FATALE" and Britney is not one of them? really? REALLY? I wish Britney would attempt to write instead of paying Max Martin and Dr. Luke to deliver hits for her now a decade later. You don’t have to worry about hating song’s for you. Nothing’s “Fresh” about the album, although it’s the first time you are almost completely unrecognizable because of the auto-tune. Auto-tune is fun in moderation, when you use it to carry every note throughout a song and change your voice to sound like a man or robots it’s a bit too far, that’s going to look odd watching you lip-sync live in concert LOL Yes the song’s are fun, but you let on you’re a musical genius when you’ve co-written maybe 2 song’s over the course of 12 years. You’re not an artist; you’re a performer and a studio artist.



  41. 41

    Face it this girl has staying power for long time to come! Love ya Brit!



  42. 42

    I've loved and bought every Britney cd since day one but I too wonder why she never writes any songs. Does she not have the desire to get her feelings down on paper?? Has she tried and failed so miserably they couldn't wrap music around it?? I'm just curious. I'll be buying this one nonetheless.



  43. 43

    I LOve Brit and can't wait!!! www.weightlossin90.bodybyvi.com



  44. 44

    Sorry but the two new songs have been quite generic and disappointing. When she said she was going dubstep I though she'd be doing something like Katy B but it ended up being a carbon copy of all the other songs out there.



  45. 45

    Woah, what's with the hate here? She didn't say she was creating an opus ::rolls eyes:: she said she wanted to make a great dance/pop album.

    And if you people write in the same tone that you speak, I feel badly for your English teachers.



  46. 46

    Britney, check out Kostas Martakis from Greece. Great sound! He's mostly on youtube from what I can tell.
