Just because Britney Spears is about to launch a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas that doesn't mean the 32-year-old pop princess doesn't think about retiring.
"I have thought about it, but I think right now is my time to perform and doing what I'm doing," Spears told me yesterday while promoting her new E! special, I Am Britney Jean.
"If I happen to have another baby or something like that, I'd probably move back to Louisiana," she said. "I do miss Louisiana. I miss the people. I miss the food. I miss the way of life, how everything is really simple. There's no traffic like there is in L.A. It's really nice."
Funny enough, Brit says even when she was a little girl still growing up in the Pelican State, she thought about starring in a Las Vegas show one day. "I always kind of said that in the back of mind," she said. "I'm superstitious like that. I have a gut feeling about something and then it happens."
When the day does come that Spears hangs up her dancing shoes and unplugs the microphones, Hollywood probably won't be too far away. As I first told you yesterday, Mama Britney thinks her kids, Sean Preston, 8, and Jayden, 7, will follow in her and their dancer dad Kevin Federline's footsteps.
"I'm sure they will," Spears said. "Preston, he's already dancing up a storm. He shows all my dancers how he can dance. It's really funny."
Jayden, she said, "is actually the singer. He sings a lot."
E! News' exclusive two-hour movie event, I Am Britney Jean, premieres tomorrow, Dec. 22, on E! at 9 p.m. Her Vegas show, Britney Spears: Piece of Me, opens Dec. 27.
