Though Britney Spears and Jason Trawick called off their 13-month engagement in January, the pop princess hasn't been wallowing in despair.
Instead, she used the experience as fodder for her forthcoming studio album, slated for a Dec. 3 release. The "Work Bitch" singer spoke about her latest music during a Sept. 20 On Air with Ryan Seacrest radio interview.
"It's the most personal album I've ever done" Spears said. "After having a huge breakup this year, I had a lot to say in the studio, so it was nice to have a therapy like that and to be able to share that with my fans."
The recording process has been cathartic for Spears, who is currently dating lawyer David Lucado. "The stuff that really comes from the heart is usually the best stuff and has the best beat and really kind of helps you get over the breakup really easy, cause you sing about it and have to think about it every night," she explained. "But then you're like, ‘It's okay! I'm performing now so it's totally fine.'"
Spears added, "It's like a therapeutic way to get over it."
During her chat with host Ryan Seacrest, Spears also revealed what's in store for her two-year residency at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood, which kicks off Dec. 27. "Every time I do a show, I like to really bring it and I love to be really entertained," she said. "Coming from theater, I love to put on a show. So, we are going to have all the works—snow, water, rain, everything!"
