Britney Spears is the ultimate pop princess, but even the superstar gets stressed out at everyday situations.
The blonde beauty graced the cover of Flaunt magazine, and opened up about what she describes as her "weird" fears in the publication's pages.

The singer admitted suffering from anxiety:
"Oh, I'm so weird. I get nervous in a lot of situations. Parties, clubs. When there are a lot of people around, I'm a weird, anxiety-ridden person."
Miz Spears even reflected on her infamous 2007 breakdown, mentioning what's changed in her life over the past nine years:
"I have a great security team with me now. I think with a lot of things in the past, I didn't have security. I didn't have the guidelines that I have now, which are brilliant. I'm very close to my security team."
The popular performer also stressed that much has mellowed since her troubles on '07:
"I have kids now too, so everything is on a way lower scale. I'm actually a very boring person. I don't go out. I don't really do anything. I should be Mother Mary, seriously. I think my life has done a complete 360. Things are just different now. It's a different time. It's a different era."
The star also explained how religion has shaped her over the years:
"I believe in an afterlife, of course. I'm a very spiritual person. I believe in heaven. I believe we're all here for a reason. I think we're here just as people to pass it on and pass our information on to others, to inspire as much as we can. Inspire every day. And just to be good people, you know? And give back and help others."
And, believe it or not, Brit doesn't even listen to her own songs! She spilled:
"It's funny, because I don't really listen to my music. My kids do and my nieces do. I'm about the creative process. I'm in the moment of being creative and then I put it out there. Of course, I sing my songs every night and I have to listen to it that way, but I'm all about change. And new. And forthcoming. But, there is a part of me in my music and I hope, for my fans, that they can have that part of me when they hear me on the radio, or buy my CD, or whatever they do."
Well, we suppose that's fair! If the momma-of-two has to perform her hits all the time, that's sort of like listening to them! LOLz!
