Watch Britney Spears Get Quirky, Awkward And Cheesy In ‘I Am Britney Jean’ Documentary

Since her pop inception at 16 years old, Britney Spears has blossomed into her own star. To prep for her 50-show Las Vegas residency, the 32-year-old songstress allows the cameras to shadow her every move as she picks her dancers, shoot promos and learn the choreography for what is arguably the biggest show of her career.

In her 90-minute E! special, viewers not only learn that Brit Brit is a shy gal or that her favorite bubble gum flavor is watermelon but that she has to juggle mommyhood with her career and the jarring headlines about her personal life that plague the Internet: a combination that sometimes makes it difficult to be heard.

“I’m not saying it’s good to be a bitch, but a lot of times, in this industry, it’s better to speak up and say what’s on your mind, which I have a problem with,” she says in the doc.

You can cop tickets to her “Piece of Me” residency (which kicks off Dec. 27) here and her Britney Jean LP on iTunes. Now watch Brit put in work and then some below.
