BRITNEY SPEARS REVEALS HER FIVE-YEAR PLAN
Britney Spears has revealed her five-year plan. The singer told InStyle magazine, "I would like to be busy for the first couple of years, but then I would really like to have another baby, a girl. I think she would be like a mini-me. I think it's going to be crazy. I'm not going to feel as alone in the world anymore. I'm going to feel like I have a second person, like, that's me."
Britney then spoke of the challenges of motherhood, saying, "As a mom, you have all these situations you go through, and you're like, 'What is going on? Is this normal? Is this a phase? Or what is this?' and then you feel silly for asking questions because you think, 'I'm a mom, I'm supposed to know these things, but you don't. You're human. To be honest, I wish I had more mom friends."
John Mayer has discussed working with his girlfriend, Katy Perry on their upcoming duet. In a NYC radio interview, John said, "I had this idea that just sat around for a while and I thought, 'Maybe I'll finish it some day', and I played it for Don Was who was producing the record with me and he said, 'Get Katy to sing on it.’ Now, he could say that because he doesn't have to worry about all the hang-ups that I'd have to worry about."
The singer later said that despite him and Katy’s different work ethic, Katy was professional while recording the song. John explained, "She was an artist in the studio and partner out of the studio. It was really professional. There was a moment where she was like, 'Let me just go through it once', and the way I work is, 'Let's get this and that and that', and she was like, 'Let me try it my way.'"

I think it was part of, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice -- I'd have to be at home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn't ready for it. It wasn't like, 'Hey, let's have a kid because we're in love."

DEMI LOVATO SHARES HER ROCK BOTTOM EXPERIENCES
Demi Lovato has spoken publicly about her past cocaine addition. The 21-year-old told Access Hollywood, "With my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn't go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes. I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I'd sneak to the bathroom and I'd do it. That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody with me, I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me and I was able to hide it from them as well."
She then revealed her struggles with alcohol abuse, saying, "I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA to the sober living house that I was staying at. I had all the help in the world, but I didn't want it."
Demi then touched on her eating disorder -- which started back when Demi was about 8-years-old. She explained, "It was always there, but then I just acted on it at around 8 or 9 years old. I started overeating, compulsively overeating. I would bake cookies and then eat the whole pan. I went from doing that to being unhappy with my body. I went to just completely starving myself and that turned into throwing up and starving myself and it was just this crazy battle going on inside of me."
