Pop star Britney Spears lands the June cover of Harper's Bazaar—the issue doesn't hit newsstands until May 31st, but we've got a sneak peek inside (above) and at the cover image (after the jump). In the interview, Spears opens up about her upcoming tour, how being a working mom affecter her career, and more.

On preparing for her upcoming tour: “I love to dance, so it’s very exciting. The tour rehearsals have been going really well. I think it will be my best show yet.”

On how being a mom affected how she approaches her career: “I think things through a little bit more, and I worry a lot. I’m more straightforward, and I speak up more than I did before. When I was younger, I wouldn’t speak up as much, but now that I’m a mom, things have changed.”

What don’t people know about you? “I’m pretty normal, you know? Like I said, the type of day I love is just like everybody else’s. I’m like everybody else.”
