Britney Spears has been in the public eye ever since appearing on The Micky Mouse Club when she was just 12 years old. Although she says she doesn’t regret her worldwide fame, she admits that she doesn’t want the same for her kids.

During an interview with The Cooper Lawrence Show at 106.1 BLI on Thursday, the “Make Me” singer was asked whether her sons – Sean Preston, 10, and Jayden James, 9 – had any dreams of following their mother’s path into show business.

“I don’t know,” Spears says. “I think they think it’s cool.” Her main concern is that they don’t completely understand the implications of life in the spotlight.

“I think the magnitude of [this job] and the fame thing, I don’t think they’ve really comprehended what that would even be like,” she continued. “Hopefully they never will, because it’s kind of much.”

Despite the overwhelming nature of fame, Spears maintains that she has “no regrets” in that department. The 34-year-old singer is closing out an incredible summer with the recent release of her ninth studio album, Glory, which is being hailed as her best work in nearly a decade. Days later, she conquered the stage at the 2016 MTV VMAs for the first time since 2007.
