In the clip for her "Smurfs 2" single, "Ooh La La," Spears' sons Jayden James, 6, and Sean Preston, 7, also make an appearance.
The two boys join Spears in the theater for a screening of "The Smurfs" sequel, which is a realistic enough set-up as the 31-year-old Spears has said how obsessed her kids with the small blue creatures.
"[T]he main reason why I did it was because my boys," Spears told Ryan Seacrest of her "Smurf" single in June. "We’ve seen 'The Smurfs' movie a million, trillion times and they were told they could be in the video and all this cool stuff, so that’s the reason why I did it.”
Although she ended spending a lot of time in hair and make-up during the shoot, Spears heard that her kids were pros on-set.
“They were actually really, really good," she told Seacrest. "They were acting, and my oldest son, Preston, was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something. ... I was in hair and makeup, so later on I got to see what they actually did on camera, and it was adorable.”
Aside from her family-friendly "Smurfs" song, Spears is also at work on her next album.
"I think people will be surprised," she's said of her upcoming release, which she hopes to drop by the end of the year. "It’s definitely at the beginning stages right now but I want to definitely take this album and have a new approach with it and make it a little different than anything I’ve ever done.”
