Britney talks about her career – New material, future projects

Allure: "I'm not sure about anything anymore. I've not officially resigned with Jive again and me and Dan are just kind of figuring out stuff right now, you know? It's hard to say if I'll ever release the material I'm working on right now in it's current state, but you'll see the best out of it in not so distant future. There is a song called 'Try' that I wrote and recorded and I really feel it at the moment. It's kind of, I wanna do an album for me this time. But I don't really wanna call it an album though. I know of a multi-part thing that I've been preparing, and every part kind of completes the other. But I wanna take time, you know? I'm not rushing myself and I wanna do it right this time. I really have the urge to express my opinion on some ehtings I've never been allowed to say before. I wanna get to people where it hurts now... I wanna be real about it."

Britney wed her childhood pal JASON ALEXANDER in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the beginning of last year (04) in a bid to "shock the s**t" out of her parents.

The pop superstar freely admits she didn't realise the chapel ceremony in Sin City was legally binding, and she only agreed to do it to upset her mum and dad.

The singer tells style magazine ALLURE, "I think that really kind of was a desperate cry to my family. I kind of feel it brought my family together, and that was something that needed to happen.

"I had felt lost for so long and my mom was getting my sister ready for showbusiness, and I'm on the road, just running around in Germany with my head cut off and not knowing what the hell's going on.

"I didn't need some counsellor. I needed my mom, and I needed my dad."
