(Newser) – Britney Spears’ new show may be a circus, but it isn’t exactly family-friendly—Kevin Federline wouldn’t allow the couple’s kids to watch, deeming it too raunchy. More behind-the-scenes tidbits from the Mirror:

  • The pop star is remarkably un-diva-like, making no special backstage demands and sticking to the normal catered menu. Before the big show, she just slept in and ate a big breakfast.

  • Her wardrobe choices, however, were not so simple—one tight number required her to spend more than five hours in a body cast.
  • Nor were the souvenirs very down-to-earth—a velvet tracksuit was offered for $150 and a flashing lollipop for $25.
  • K-Fed, however, did keep it homey while Brit was performing—he was spotted ordering two Big Macs and a milkshake at a McDonald’s drive-thru window.
