“Unfortunately, I am [a hopeless romantic],” she revealed to Australian radio show Rove and Sam on Hit 104.1. “I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in love.”
The 34-year-old and childhood friend Jason Alexander tied the knot at a Vegas wedding chapel in 2004. The marriage lasted a scant 55 hours.
Later that year, Spears married backup dancer Kevin Federline. The couple welcomed sons Sean Preston, 10, and Jayden James, 9, before splitting in November 2006.
Spears has since been engaged to Jason Trawick, and found brief romance with producer Charlie Ebersol in 2015.
“I still believe in love and that sort of thing,” she said. “But, I think you should protect your heart and stuff like that.”
So what’s the key to Spears’ heart? Old-fashioned wooing, she says, giving her approval to even a love song mixtape.
“I like cheesy,” she said. “I think cheesy is so sweet and nice.”
