Britney Spears is back to doing press to promote her upcoming summer tour for her album, "Femme Fatale," and the message she's trying to spread: "I'm pretty normal," she tells Harper's Bazaar. "The type of day I love is just like everybody else's. I'm like everybody else."

For many reasons, "like everybody else" seems a stretch, but she does approach her career now from the standpoint that many women do -- as a mom.

"I think things through a little bit more, and I worry a lot," Spears told the magazine. "I'm more straightforward, and I speak up more than I did before. When I was younger, I wouldn't speak up as much, but now that I'm a mom, things have changed."

Spears' tour begins June 16 in Sacramento, Calif., and wraps up Aug. 14 in Toronto.
