LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Paula Abdul, Jennifer Lopez… Britney Spears? Could the next pop star be setting her sights on getting behind the “American Idol” judges’ table?
In a new interview in Harper’s Bazaar June issue, the singer said she could imagine herself critiquing would-be singers.
“I would,” Brit told the mag when asked if would ever be a judge on the hit FOX reality singing competition. “I wouldn’t be a tough judge though.”
The 29-year-old pop princess lists Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Rihanna as some of her music favorites and she also revealed a love for pop’s reigning teen prince.
“I think [Justin Bieber is] adorable. I just saw his movie, and I really didn’t realize how big he was. He’s enormous, he’s just Mr. Man. A lot of the movie is really similar to what I did when I was starting out. I did a promo tour for a year, going into radio stations and all that. It was so cool to see our similarities,” she told the mag.
Brit told the mag that being a mother to sons Sean, 5, and Jayden, 4, has helped her mature and speak her mind.
“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,” she explained. “When I was younger, I wouldn’t speak up as much, but now that I’m a mom, things have changed.”
And is the pop star ready for more major life changes in the form of marriage and the possibility of having more children?
“I’ve thought about both,” Brit, who is dating Jason Trawick, revealed. “So if the timing was right “
The singer is hitting the road this summer with Nicki Minaj on the “Femme Fatale” tour, which kicks off on June 16 in Sacramento, Calif. and wraps on August 13 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
