Going on a date with a celebrity may be difficult, but dating as a celebrity is even harder – at least according to Britney Spears.

In the new issue of Marie Claire UK, the 34-year-old singer opens up about one incident in particular where her fame didn’t protect her from the awkwardness of a first date.


‘I had a really bad date. I mean, it was bad. I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me,’ she shares. ‘We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward.’

She continues, ‘So after the movie I came home and that was it. It just didn’t work… He just wasn’t that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same. It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different.’

Aww, Brit! However, the Make Me singer admits that at the moment she’s feeling good about being single, and isn’t focusing on looks because the two men in her life, her sons Sean, 10, and Jayden, nine, ‘don’t care if everything isn’t perfect’.

That’s definitely an attitude we can all adopt.
