Britney Spears doesn't want her boys in show business

She's not that innocent, but she's determined to keep her sons that way!

In a new Q&A with the August issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, Britney Spears says she does not want her boys Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3, entering show business and is dreading the day she has to tell them about the birds and the bees.

Filling out the popular Cosmo questionnaire, the 28-year-old former child star writes that If her sons told her they wanted to be in the entertainment business, she would lock them in their rooms until they turned 30.

Spears adds that shes dreading the moment when Sean and Jayden - her kids with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 32 - ask her how babies are made.

Despite her mommy fears, the pop star, who is currently dating her agent, Jason Trawick, says that life these days is no longer a circus. "Things are pretty quiet right now. Ive been spending a lot of time at home with my boys," she tells Cosmo. "They just started karate class, which is super cute!"

    Ya, she cares so much for those boys that she's cut down to only smoking two packs a day in the same room with them in it.

      I think you mean yeah instead of ya.
      Before you try to cut someone down please use spellcheck and to reply to your smart/dumb comment,do you think she's the only one in America who has kids and smoke cigarettes?
      There's parents that do worse than that in front of there kids.Go do some research,idiot.
      Most of these comments reek of envy.It's funny she's not doing anything but trying to be a mom to her kids and people wanna play moral police.
      I bet while some of these G.E.D recipients,text writing in a comment box...oops i mean people who are better than Britney Spears are typing away,they don't have a clue who their baby daddy is.

    If you don't like Britney,then read past the article.If you don't like someone or something,you don't have to be around them or buy it.Most of these people on here talking smack don't have a job and probably spend their time doing nothing day by day.If you're so better than Britney,let's see you get a record deal and become famous since it's so easy.
    She's been through something like we all have,that's what makes us HUMAN.Nobody's perfect.Those are her kids and she can raise them anyway she pleases.What Britney does in with her life isn't going to affect you in any way,shape,or form.You easy reader losers need to turn off the computer and go live life and stop trying to judge others when you're not do any better than them.

    She should realize that she doesn't own those boys, they're on loan to her from God. She can't decide whether they're going to become plumbers or lawyers or singers.

    It's good to see that she's getting her life together. But show business wasn't what caused her life to go off the tracks. It did, though, allow her to make a fool of herself at nicer bars and hotels than the rest of us frequent. Every one of us has known people with regular jobs who have been down the same bad path that she chose.

    Time will tell how sincere she is about being back on track with her life. Life is about choices, she has made more wrong then right decisions. People that are lucky to make it in her kind of world either make it or break it. They don't know how lucky they are to have that shot at fame, there are so many waiting for that chance. Lets hope for her sons sake she keeps her head on straight.

      I agree with you! yes, some things she did was a little outrageous but seriously, half the people critizing her have done things just as bad but they just weren't caught on tape and put on the news channel!

    Interesting...Nicole Richie now has 2 kids, and seems to be normal. Britney Spears has 2 kids, and is finding normalcy as well. After detoxing herself (and a few tetanus shots) Lindsay Lohan should think about hopping on the Waterbreak Wagon. It might do wonders for her.

    I don't know why she dreads having to tell her kids about the birds and the bees. Seems to me it would be simple – show them some home movies and they'll understand completely!

    She is a well known nut that everyone wants to believe is fine. Without her supposed anti depressives and equivalents to counter her symtoms, she would be considered one of the richest mad women in the world as of right now. Preventative for these types of ailments would take a lot more time to develop and prevent this well advertised tragedy of life so far.
    Otherwise a interesting musical success that is a gamble to control and maintain and keep appearances with.
    Besides a large portion of the homeless population are untreated versions of her and others.

      I'm actually offended by this as I'm sure alot of other people who suffer mental disabilities are as well. If it's treated properly with the right medicine and the right support, such people can lead normal lives. Are you saying that there is no hope? It looks like she really got the much needed help she needs and was lucky to have such a supporting family. I'm not a fan of her music but she really does suffer from a mental disease (weather it be major depression, bipolar, etc). No one asks to have such things and oftentimes, you are born with it. Taking the medication and receiving support doesn't "cure" you but it helps you regain control of your life and that's what millions of other people do who have just what she has.

    "Spears adds that shes dreading the moment when Sean and Jayden – her kids with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 32 – ask her how babies are made." I could see where that might be a problem with Briney considering she's probably still trying to figure out how Sean and Jayden were conceived.

      she should not dictate the future of her boys; It is up to them. She needs to send them to good schools and be a good support parent. Let them make up their own decisions and follow their bliss. She will need to butt out.

      It has been apparent that she'd done a little too much of 'been there done that' but at least she's finally leading a clean life now and wants to see her kids go the right paths as well. Give the gal a break, and she is one HOT mama (MILF)!!!

      look at everything she has been through why would she want her children to go through it to. I mean though not all famous people go through hard time like britney did it is common. she's just looking out for her kids, i would do the same.

      Her responsibility is to love them and educate them. They can then make up their own minds as to what they want to be.

    It is nice to see that Britney has gotten her life straightened around. All of us go through tough patches and it doesn't help when it is broadcast to the world. Everyone wants to be 'rich and famous", but once they get there, the "rich" part is good becuase of all the good that can be done with money, but the "famous" part tends to stink and get in the way. Good luck Britney, my kids are in Karate too and it is a great way of life.

      I`ve been very critical of Britney in the past but I agree that it1s nice to see her doing well. I wish her and her family the best. Now lets hope the tabloids don`t take this thing and turn it into something negative. I won`t count on it though because nice does`nt sell magazines. God bless Britney.

    She's gone "normal". She looks "normal". She talks "normal". It appears that her agent has provided a rational and intelligent guiding hand in her life. Well. if we still want insane, there's always Lindsay and Paris.
