(Radio.com) Britney Spears may be riding high with her album "Glory" but the popstar reveals that she has endured a lengthy battle with anxiety, which was at its worst before her well-publicized breakdown in 2007.
"I was so under scrutiny. If a hair was out of place, I'd be so anxious. I would get very anxious about so many things." Spears tells the magazine Marie Claire.

Following her meltdown, Spears learned to cope with her disorder by shying away from the limelight and focusing on motherhood. She gives her sons credit for her growth.

"Becoming a mother and being with my boys [Jayden, 9, Sean Preston, 10] has made me so much more accepting of myself," she said. "I'm their mom, whatever. That has been a really big thing for me over these last few years."

Spears also revealed that being an international pop icon doesn't necessarily make dating any easier. And anxiety further complicates matters. Read about that here.
