Britney: My Time Off Was Great, But I'm Ready To Work *****

Britney hung up her diamond, skin-colored cat suit and head mic for several weeks to be a mommy during her off time from performing in Las Vegas, but the pop star in her is ready to come out from under.

She tells People magazine in a new interview:

“My time off was a blast! It was probably one of the best breaks I’ve had in a long time. I went to Jamie Lynn’s wedding in New Orleans – I can’t believe my baby sis is all grown up! – and then spent a few days running around on the beach in Hawaii with my boys.”

“I feel great, I really do. I’ve been trying to change up my workouts by getting outdoors more. I am channeling my inner athlete, playing a lot of basketball and more recently taking tennis lessons. Serena Williams, watch out! ”
“Sin City is calling my name! Don’t get me wrong: I love being at home in L.A., but the performer in me is excited to get back into show mode. The dancing, the costumes, my fans singing along to my songs – it’s such a huge adrenaline rush. And I love tying someone up every night during “Freakshow!”

Brit takes the stage for the third leg of “Piece Of Me” on Friday, April 25.
