Pop singer and icon Britney Spears did not have an easy time when she was in her 20s.
In the span of a decade, the pop princess got divorced twice, temporarily lost custody of her children and was put under an emergency psychiatric hold - among other headline-grabbing and career-threatening drama.
With the help of her family and management team, Spears got her act together and is back at the top of her game with a Las Vegas residency and a new hit album Glory.
Speaking on the Lorraine Show on Thursday, she reflected on that tumultuous time, reports eonline.com: "I liked my 30s way more than my 20s. My 20s were horrible," said Spears, 34.
"My teens were fun, but I like my 30s. 30s is great. You know who you really are."
Spears is nervous about what will happen when her sons Sean Federline, 11, and Jaden Federline, 10, become teenagers. "It's a little strange. I'm nervous, because I know 12, 13, 14 and 15 is going to be really scary, and I'm going to be like, 'Mom, please come to the house and help me out here'," joked the singer, who is currently single.
"But right now, it's a great age. They are still babies."
