It's hard to believe, but it's been almost 15 years since Britney Spears danced with that albino python at the MTV Video Music Awards.

"It's insane! Why did I do that?" Spears said during our exclusive interview yesterday on the set of the music video for her upcoming single "Make Me."

Nope, she has no plans to ever repeat that iconic performance of "I'm A Slave 4 U."

"Hell, no!" Spears said. "It's so dumb. No! Never!"

And while we were taking a trip down memory lane, I mentioned how next year will mark the 20th anniversary of her signing with Jive Records. "I know!" Spears squealed. "I'm so old!"

So not old, Britney—you're only 34!

What advice would she give her younger self? "Be fearless," Spears said.

"Make Me" is the first single from her upcoming new album. The song is expected to drop next month followed by the full album in the fall. The video is directed by David LaChapelle and features Spears' collaborator on the song, rapper G-Eazy.

In a photo that Spears posted of her and G-Eazy on her Instagram, she's wearing a barely there ensemble reminiscent of the outfit she wore while dancing with the python. In another pic with shirtless model Austin Kellogg, she's wearing black leather S&M gear around her neck and across her chest. A third photo shows Brit surrounded by her hunky dancers.

"It's very exciting," Spears told me about her upcoming ninth studio album. "I've been working on this project for a year and a half now, almost two years so it really means a lot to me. It's my baby."

She described the sound as "a little melodic, a little more not so poppy. It's kind of chill. Very chill."

Watch E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to find out what Brit told us about her kids—and then on Monday night, we're talking about her very hot body!
