Britney Spears: 'I'm In Love With New Boyfriend'
Pop star opens up in revealing interview with Entertainment Tonight...
"I'm in love... I like the fact that [he is] very stubborn and he's stuck in his ways," she said.
"He's just a simple man. I adore him. He's really funny and he's really passionate. I love the fact that anything he's involved in he's passionate about and it's contagious."
And when asked if her dad Jamie had run a background check on her new beau, she admitted: "That is true. My dad's a little crazy like that."
She also discussed her new album Britney Jean - revealing that making it had been a form of therapy for her.
"I would say it was kind of like therapy for me," she explained. "It just kind of transformed me. As you write something, your perspective changes. So it was like my 'good therapy record'.
"I'm an artist, so I think there are periods in everyone's life where you get kind of reclusive, your creative outlet is cut off. Then sometimes it flows and you're like, 'Oh my God, this is what I need to be doing', [which makes] it easier for you to be the artist that you want to be.
"I love what I do, I mean, there's been days where it's been harder for me than other days, of course... my philosophy is to just take each day at a time."
