You Don't Even KNOW Britney Spears

Think you know Britney Spears?

In an interview with Pop Justice, the star says that you probably do not - and the real Britney Spears is a lot LESS interesting than what you likely imagine.

She opens up about bedtime (10:30 p.m.), her gray hairs (or lack thereof) and what she'd be doing if she weren't famous ("probably a teacher") and more.

When it comes to Britney the real person, as opposed to the pop star, Spears believes most people only know about "half" of what makes her who she is.

"I can be pretty guarded with my personal life and I've learned that's okay," she says. "Your personal life is your personal life, and should stay private."

Keeping people guessing, she says, is part of her job.

"Sometimes it's our secrets that define us," she says.

It's no secret Britney Spears has had a wild life. So what would she do if her boys – Sean Preston, 5, and Jayden James, 4 – pursued pop stardom?

"I'd definitely keep an eye on them," she says. "But if that's what they really wanted to do then I'd let them go after it. I'd just be very protective."

"I wouldn't want them to go into it feeling fearful, and also nobody can really prepare you for this and what you experience," says the 29-year-old.

"I'd just have to trust their instincts and help guide them."

Learning to trust her instincts was hard for her personally.

"The biggest mistake I've ever made [was] to not trust my instincts," she says. "It's just about listening to your gut in different situations. I've learned to trust my instincts over the years but it definitely took time."

We're glad she's doing so much better these days.
