Britney Spears has given a candid insight into her personal life in an interview with Marie Claire. If you’ve ever had one of those god-awful dates that makes you so super nervous everything goes wrong, you have something in common with Britney spears.
Turns out Celebs aren’t immune to the horrific world that is dating and man are we happy about that.
The pop starlet revealed to the publication that not long ago she suffered one of those cringe-worthy awkward dates that make you question why the hell you’re even bothering. She liked the guy, he didn’t like her, and thus the awkwardness ensued.
She said: ‘I had a really bad date. I mean, it was bad. I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me. In the evening I got on the scales and I had lost six pounds.’

But sadly, nerves got the better of her and it all went a bit Pete Tong: ‘We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward. ‘So after the movie I came home and that was it. It just didn’t work […] He just wasn’t that into me.’
The 34-year-old added that fame doesn’t mean you get away from it: ‘I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same. It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different.’
If you thought that was bad, Britters, don’t even bother with Tinder.

Britney has made one hell of a comeback, astounding everyone with her incredible VMAs performance (although some fans thought she appeared to be miming), and it’s been a hard road getting there.
Even Britney, whose career has spanned 20 years, worried about her work.
She said: ‘Southern girls can be very hard on themselves because you are expected to act in a certain way, you are expected to please people. And then I moved to Los Angeles when I was very young. ‘I was so under scrutiny. If a hair was out of place, I’d be so anxious. I would get very anxious about so many things.’
