    Britney Jean really is Britney Spears' most personal work yet.

    About 100 people gathered for a listening party tonight for Brit's upcoming eighth studio album, where they were treated to a preview of "Alien," "Perfume," "Tik Tik Boom" featuring T.I., "Don't Cry" and "It Should Be Easy," featuring Will.i.am, who hosted the event at his Hollywood studio.

    "It's my most personal album," Spears said. "I went through a breakup this year and a lot of the album has to do with that."

    In between tracks, Andy Cohen moderated a chat on a makeshift stage with Spears and Will.i.am.

    The pop princess called herself a "perfectionist" about work.

    "I love what I do so I have a hand in everything that I do," she said.

    The 31-year-old showbiz veteran also revealed her favorite snack foods while recording—sushi and Skittles!

    Spears looked fab. Her signature blond hair was down and fell over her shoulders. She wore tight black pants, a sleeveless black shirt and black heels.

    She said of the new album, "I want people to listen to it and be inspired."

    Britney Jean goes on sale Dec. 3. Its first single, "Work Bitch," dropped in mid-September.

    Earlier this month, Spears released "Perfume," the second single from the album.

    "'Perfume' is incredibly special to me because it hits close to home, and I think the story is relatable to everyone," the pop princess told me exclusively at the time. "Everyone's been through an insecure moment in a relationship that's left them vulnerable and I think this song captures that."

    About three weeks after Britney Jean drops, the mother of two will launch her two-year residency, Piece of Me, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
