Say, whatever happened to that sweet superstar BRITNEY SPEARS? Yes, Britney has been laying low since the media explosion over her quickie marriage and subsequent annulment to good friend JASON ALLEN ALEXANDER last month. She thought we’d forgotten, didn’t she? But our STEVEN COJOCARU just couldn’t let that continue! He’s the only one the hit-maker is talking to about why she decided to spontaneously tie — and then untie — the knot.
“I’m really impressed with you,” Cojo tells her on tonight’s ET. “You’re plugging away, doing all these things and have all these projects going on with all this dish around you. So, it’s coming — we’re going to do the marriage question. Let’s breathe. It’s not going to be that bad, but here we go. You said it was a joke, you got carried away. I get carried away in Vegas … so I think the question is — what were you thinking?”
“Honestly, I really wanted to see what it was like to be married,” she reveals. “Maybe that sounds silly, but, in that moment, I was with a friend that I love dearly and I wanted to do something wild and crazy and I wanted to get married. So that’s why I did it.”
Britney says that since then she doesn’t give much thought to rumor-spreading, tabloid gossip. “I try not to pay attention to what the headlines say,” she tells Cojo. “I just focus on my work because the media always tries to capture your personal life. Since that happened (wedding) it’s made me definitely want to think about what I do a little more because they blow it way out of proportion.”
Then Cojo asks the chart-topper, who claims she’s just a normal girl who loves coffee, magazines and watching “Sex and the City” with friends, “When you were a kid and dreamed of becoming a singer and being well known, did you know fame would be this rough?”
“I don’t think it’s rough,” she says. “It’s intense. I have to say I chose this for my life and I feel very blessed. There are always ups and downs with anything that you do. At first, when I was young, it was very cool in a way because I was naive and oblivious to the whole thing … but once you get older you become a little bit more aware, which is kind of a sad thing. Sometimes I try and snap into that mode of ‘You know what?’ ‘You just have to live your life and do what you love to do and move on and focus on positive things.'”
Work, work and more work is one way Britney is moving on. Her Onyx Hotel Tour starts on March 2nd and Cojo gets the scoop on why she named it after the mystical black stone. “It’s in mines in India and people go to these stones to see them because they’re so powerful,” she says. “Supposedly they ward off evil … whenever light is reflected on it the stone changes colors, and I thought it was symbolic to what I do.”
“I like ‘Britney Is on Fire — The Tour’ or ‘Don’t Mess with Britney,'” Cojo says giving his two cents.
Britney says she wants her fans to walk away from the show with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. “I would want them to say, ‘That was just the most amazing experience that I just had of my life.’ Kind of like the feeling you get watching a strong movie where you go through all these different emotions. There’s moments where you want to cry and moments where you’re so into it. It’s very theatrical and very well thought out.”
“We’re talking a spectacle here … this is going to be wow, wow, wow!” Cojo exclaims.
