By whatever name, the pop superstar says the Britney Spears we see onstage is “a character” that has to be maintained and sustained.
“Know what it is? It’s kind of like meditation and like a prayer. When you do any type of performance that you do and really feel the character,” says Spears, who unveils her two-year resident show “Piece of Me” on Friday at Planet Hollywood Resort.
“It’s why we do what we do because we love doing that. I think artists get off on that,” she added. “It’s really fun when you find it and you go there. That’s when you have your best performances. It’s something that I strive for every day.”
In a brief phone interview last week, Spears said it takes a lot of training to be the pop princess everyone knows.
