(Newser) –  In her first interview since her well-publicized breakdown, Britney Spears talks about her dark days over the last 2 years, and tells OK! magazine that she hopes her sons shun celebrity, and “have a more normal childhood.” She also says she's "writing every day," and calls her next album “my best work ever.” 

Spears’ dad and conservator of her estate, Jamie, brokered the $1 million tete-a-tete, a friend tells the New York Post. On sister Jamie Lynn's pregnancy, the pop star said: "I was shocked a little bit. She’s always been the baby, and now the baby was having a baby. It was mind-boggling."
