Britney Spears
has been a nonstop hit-making machine for well over a decade, but even a wildly successful popstar needs a break every once in a while.

Though Brit is pretty booked up for the considerable future, with the release of a new album on the way and a two-year contract for a Las Vegas residency, she’s looking forward to taking it easy.

According to Digital Spy, when asked on a London radio show if she had imagined making it to her eighth studio LP, she said, “Never in my wildest dreams! I’ll take a break after this one for a while.”

Her new album, “Britney Jean,” has a December 3 release date, which she calls “nerve-wracking,” even though the lead single, “Work B****,” has been a significant success, peaking at no. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Describing the album, she said “Britney Jean” is “a lot of personal, sultry songs, as well as grit and edge and oomph.”
