Britney Spears is looking hotter than ever, especially in her black-and-white photo spread in Out, one of the leading gay lifestyle magazines on the market.

While we were a bit concerned about Brit Brit being able to rebound her image and style, all fears have been terminated. Brit's body is back in top form and there's an effortless, classic sexiness in these simple but stunning shots.

In the accompanying article, Brit recalls the first time she ever saw a Britney Spears drag queen ("In New Orleans singing 'Slave 4 U.' I almost died") and how she molded her career after Madonna ("She is an amazing entertainer. Besides Madonna, I also admire Sarah Jessica Parker's career and her shoe collection.")

Brit also admitted to being a fan of peers Lady Gaga and Rihanna."I love Gaga and Rihanna," she says. "Rihanna's 'S&M' is awesome." She also says she wished she recorded 'Love the Way You Lie,' Ri Ri's duet with Eminem.

Brit labels her forthcoming album 'Femme Fatale' as the most "mature" and 'upbeat' album of her career, which is perhaps a case of art imitating life. Brit looks and sounds better than she has in years.

In a series of fun questions, Brit says her idea of hell is "being on a diet" while "a trip with my kids" is her version of heaven! She also addresses plastic surgery: "When it's time to pull and tuck, I am sure I will consider it," Of course, the newly reformed singer is looking forward to the next decade of their life, and aging gracefully. "I'm excited to be out of my 20s," Brit says, who will be turning 30 Dec. 2.

Brit showed a splash of color in her recent cover spread for V magazine, too.
