Britney Spears is about to launch a 2-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Vegas, she’s got an E! documentary coming out, and a brand new album — yet she misses her pre-fame life and thinks about retiring. One of our Evil Beet readers recently commented something like, “Britney posts make me sad” and now I totally get what they mean. Here’s what Ms. Spears told E Online:
I have thought about it [retiring], but I think right now is my time to perform and doing what I’m doing. If I happen to have another baby or something like that, I’d probably move back to Louisiana. I do miss Louisiana. I miss the people. I miss the food. I miss the way of life, how everything is really simple. There’s no traffic like there is in L.A. It’s really nice.
“If I happen to have another baby”? That’s…really weird phrasing, Brit. It almost sounds like you a.) don’t know how babies are made or b.) are thinking about sabotaging your current career with a baby. I’m probably reading way too much into it, but you guys are right — she seems sad and it makes me sad.
