Britney Spears: 'I'd probably be a teacher' if I wasn't a pop star

britney-spears-pole-getty.jpg Britney Spears, currently touring and preparing for an MTV Video Music Awards performance, recently gave an interview to PopJustice about her life as a pop star.

Here are some highlights:

Do you still think it's important for popstars to keep something back from their fans?

"I think your personal life is your personal life, and that should stay private, but in the line of talking about my craft and what I do I'm willing to talk about those things."

If you'd never released a second single - so if '...Baby One More Time' had been one massive hit with nothing else - what would you be doing now?

"Raising my family. Being a mom."

You're kind of doing that anyway, if obviously in quite different circumstances... But what else would be different about your life, what else would you have done?

"It would probably pretty much be the same because I'm very strong in the way I raise my kids and stuff, so it would probably be pretty much the same but career-wise I'd probably be a teacher.  I love kids and even in what I do now one of my favorite parts of my day is getting to meet my fans before the show.  Especially the little ones.  They are always so cute."

Catch Britney live at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards airing at 9 p.m. ET Sunday, Aug. 28 on MTV.
