Britney Spears on business: 'It's really important for me to understand the big picture'

Britney Spears has opened up on the input she has on her business affairs.

The singer is worth millions of pounds and she is currently performing a lucrative Las Vegas residency called Piece of Me.

Speaking to Variety, Spears said that it is imperative she keeps a close eye on her business dealings - something she has done for years.

The singer said: "I've been very hands-on with everything I've done since I had my children. And it's just really important for me to understand the big picture, where everybody's coming from, what's the real purpose of this shoot and this song, or whatever it is in that moment that I'm doing.

"It's important to learn to say no. With tours and all of that stuff, there are so many aspects that go into it, it's easy to have so many people around you saying, 'Oh yes, yes, you can afford this, you can afford this,' and then all of the sudden you've spent $20 million on your stage and you're like, 'Where's my money?'"

Spears added: "You have to make sure that you're on top of things and know where the money's going."
