10 Things We Learned About Britney Spears During Last Night’s Special

Britney Spears gave fans a rare glimpse into her personal life in I Am Britney Jean last night. The 2-hour commercial documentary premiered on E! and chronicled the lead up to the singer’s Vegas show, featuring everything from creative meetings to dancer auditions to the rehearsal process and more. It also took viewers behind-the-scenes to the Spears family Thanksgiving, and even introduced fans to Brit Brit’s new boyfriend, David, who she claims is “a good guy.”

The movie was filled with all sorts of personal revelations about the pop diva. Here are 10 of Britney’s biggest reveals from last night’s special:

10. Sometimes when Britney has sex, she feels different ages. “I love sex,” she confessed. “I think sex is great. But I feel a little different about it now that I’m older. Sometimes I feel like I’m 20 and then sometimes I feel like I’m 50.”

9. Britney believes the meaning of life is to “love beyond reason” and she keeps a sign in her bathroom reminding her of this. “Love is just an unexplainable thing and there’s a saying that I have in my bathroom in Louisiana,” she said. “It says ‘Go beyond reason to love, for it’s the only safety there is.’ And it’s true, you should always go beyond reason to love and to be with the person you want to be with and to be cherished and to be treasured. I think it’s why we’re here as people.”

8. Britney’s favorite bubblegum is watermelon. “Watermelon,” she said with absolute certainty. “Watermelon bubblegum, it’s the best.”

7. Britney suffers from social anxiety. Said she: “I have always been kind of shy, since I was a little girl. It’s who I am to be modest, so I really can’t help it… It’s almost like it’s my alter ego when I get on stage. I turn into this different person seriously. Bipolar disorder. Ha ha.”

6. Britney’s younger sister, Jaime Lynn, can kick her ass. “We have gone to battle a couple of times and I will have to say she is very very strong, like surprisingly strong,” she confessed. “She nails me to the ground every time.”

5. Britney believes Vegas is a great location to raise children. “I figured it’d be a really good place for the children and the family,” she claimed. “It was kind of like an ideal situation.”

4. Britney’s grandmother was from London, and that’s why she sometimes sings in a British accent. “My grandmother, she was from London,” Spears explained. “She was always very proper and very together so maybe I get it from her a little bit. Hearing the sound of it, it just puts you in a jolly mood.”

3. Britney is very excited that her Vegas act will feature water. “I was so into having water,” she said. “I haven’t had water in forever.

2. Britney’s passion for dance is undying. “I love watching people dance,” she admitted. “I could watch people dance all day long.”

1. Britney believes in angels. “I believe there are others forces out there greater than us,” she said. “Angels, guardians, protectors. I definitely believe in Heaven. I know there is a place beyond our wildest dreams.”
