At 28, she has five number one albums and yet another sold-out tour under her belt, proving that this superstar is as awesome as ever. Now Britney is enjoying some strict downtime…but she made an exception for Cosmo.

You’ve got to hand it to Britney. She didn’t just bounce back last year—she commanded the spotlight and an album that produced back-to-back top-10 singles. When she took her show on the road, The Circus Starring Britney Spears ended up being the highest-grossing North American tour by a solo artist in 2009. After 97 performances around the world, Britney spent her final night under the big top in November and decided to take a well-deserved break from music. Since then, she’s turned her talents to fashion and created a flirty clothing line for Candie’s. “I had a lot of fun,” Britney tells us. “I’ve never designed clothing before,and I really loved the creative process.”

At the moment, she’s racking up as much family time as she can. “Things are pretty quiet right now,” she says. “I’ve been spending a lot of time at home with my boys. They just started karate class, which is supercute!” We were lucky enough to drag her away from 4-year-old Sean Preston and 3-year-old Jayden James just long enough for her to pose for a cover shoot and take one of our famous quizzes.
