Britney Spears discusses the birds and the bees (or not)

July 8, 2010 |  5:57 am

Britney-spears-august-cosmo No one puts Britney Spears in a corner -- except the Ministry, and for that we'd like to say we're sorry. 

We've been so distracted with Lindsay Lohan's nuclear meltdown, the Jake-and-Vienna squabble and the odd "Eclipse" hunk we skimmed right past the blond pop star's sit-down in the new issue of Cosmopolitan.

During her first interview in, like, forever, Spears gets candid about motherhood. For starters, she may have sexed it up in some of her early music videos, but says she's not looking forward to having The Talk with her boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

"I'm dreading the moment when my sons ask me how babies are made," she said.

Brit will have to be the one to disclose the truth, however, as the boys won't have any backup dancers or acting coaches to learn from -- they're not going to be child stars like Mama was.

"If my sons told me they wanted to be in the entertainment business," she said, "I'd lock them in their rooms until they turned 30."

In other Spears news, her line of clothes for Candie's was released July 1. Her favorite pieces? Sexy black dresses and a studded skirt. 

Now you have your Britney news -- and our apology for the delay.
