It seems the apples don’t fall far from the tree!
Britney Spears debuted her new single, “Ooh La La,” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Monday morning and revealed that her two sons, Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6, were pros when they made a cameo in the music video for the song from the The Smurfs 2 soundtrack.
“They were actually really, really good on set,” she told Seacrest. “They were, like, acting, and my oldest son, Preston, was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something Later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable.”
The 31-year-old agreed to do the song because her sons are “obsessed” with the little blue cartoon characters. “We’ve seen The Smurfs movie a million trillion times,” she said.
Spears also revealed that she’s currently working on her eighth studio album with Will.i.am and Madonna’s producer William Orbit, and said the music “will have more of a cool approach to it.”
