Britney Spears

Britney Spears has opened up in a new interview with NME about her latest album 'Glory', and admitted she was 'selfish' when it came to creating her new material.

She explained: "Honestly, this is the first project where I've really been hands-on. I was really specific about who I worked with, and I've been learning to say no. I'm a people pleaser, so that's hard for me. Even if I don't like something, I'll do it just to make a person happy. I made sure this album was everything I wanted it to be. I was really selfish with it.

"The beginning of the project was actually not that great. The songs that were coming in were not very good. So we got a new A&R girl, and we totally turned it around [and] gave it a profound new direction. I wanted to use my voice more. I did different stuff with my voice - more bluesy and urban stuff, and played around with different things."

Spears was talking in promotion of this year's Apple Music Festival, which she'll be headlining on September 27. See the full line-up below:
