Back in the day, Britney said the weirdest rumor about her was that she was an Alien (not alone not alone not aloneee), but that’s nothing compared to the rumor floating around that she DIED.

She tells ET,

“It was on the radio that I died. My family called me, wondering if I’m dead … It was pretty odd.”

She then reveals something about her fans may not know.

“I’m really kind of boring. I’m not high maintenance — I love my bed; I love working out. I’m very simple.”

Even though she’s a living legend, Britney is human like the rest of us and wants to be remembered in a positive way.

“I would like to be remembered as someone who makes you laugh,” said Britney. “I just think laughter is the most joyful thing you can do … I’m really not [a good joke teller] but I wish I was.”
