Britney Spears grateful to boyfriend Sam Asghari for giving her the gift of a "healthy" life
As Spears hit the road with her residency show, probably it is a relief to have someone who boosts her up when she is much in need of it.
Britney Spears is thankful to boyfriend Sam Asghari for boosting up her confidence off-stage just the way her on-stage performances have always proven to be "healthy". She revealed to Associated Press in May that in spite of being a rather shy person in real life, being on stage has always helped pump up her confidence. The pop star, while giving the credits of her "healthy" lifestyle to her boyfriend, had recently uploaded some grueling workout videos on her social media account.
During the interview with Associated Press, she said, "He’s a trainer so everything has to be so perfect. We probably did 40 (takes) and I hurt myself...It looked great, he did a good job and he edited it really, really well.”
Ever since the 36-year-old Grammy winner got together with the 24-year-old Iranian model, she has found him to be a "stabilizing" force in her life. According to a source, "he’s become a stabilizing force in Britney’s life, without stifling her or trying to make her into someone she’s not...He accepts her for who she is, which has been a struggle for Britney in the past.”
Apart from working out with Asghari, the pop star likes being on stage as that helps her come out of her shell. She said, "I’m very sensitive and sometimes I just want to run away because I’m a very shy person...I think energy is contagious and when I get onstage with the dancers, we all kind of vibe off each other. We feel the same energy and we connect.”
Britney mentioned that being on stage is like an unwrapping process. "I think it’s healthy to be able to put on the persona of being confident...I think it’s an escape because honestly with how shy I really am, I don’t think it’s healthy...Performing is a boost to my confidence. It’s like an alter-ego type thing. Something clicks and I go and turn into this different person. I think it’s kind of a gift to be able to do that.”
As Spears has always claimed to have "always been an active person" who gets bored easily, she plans on gearing up with her routine for her 'Piece of Me' tour, sponsored by Pepsi which is set to reissue the retro cans featuring acts from earlier campaigns, including Michael Jackson and Ray Charles. Spears, who is one of the stars in the Pepsi Generations summer campaign, kicked off her Las Vegas residency show when it hit the road on July 12 in Washington, D.C.
