Britney Spears Literally Couldn’t Care Less About Your Criticism

That’s just the vibe when you’re doing you.

Britney Spears is in the zone, but not this one. She’s seemingly hit a zen moment in her career where she’s making the music that she wants to make while flying high above the petty commentary on social media. In the cover story for the 100th issue of V magazine, Spears discusses the intense pressure and judgment that comes from being criticized by the media and the Internet critics.

“You know, Justin Bieber, he’s huge, and he experiences [judgment]. It’s just the way the world works, unfortunately,” says Spears. “I’ve been doing this for 20 years. I kind of don’t pay attention to it. I have my relationship with God and myself and that’s what matters to me. I really don’t care what most people think.”

The unique Instagram user admits that she generally avoids technology anyway, and barely uses her computer.

“My kids use the computer more than I do!” she laughs. “I understand that a lot of people are into it, and I have days where I write and stuff, but it’s really not for me. It’s not my thing.”

Instead, her focus is on finishing her new album, which she calls her baby, with the attention it deserves. “I would much rather have it be completely how I want it to be, whether that takes another year for me to do, or two months,” says Spears. “I have no idea at this point. But I just know that the direction I’m going in is so good. It’s the best thing I’ve done in a long time.”

“I’m proud of the work, and it’s very different; it’s not what you would think at all. But I’m not rushing anything. I just want it to be done right, so that my fans will truly appreciate it.”

V magazine unveiled her three gorgeous covers on Tuesday (Mar. 1), which you can view here. Head over to the V shop to purchase your copy of the hundredth issue.
