The Next Cover of Rolling Stone: Britney Spears Returns

November 25, 2008 10:36 AM ET

A year after her very public meltdown, Britney Spears is back to work and out of trouble. But what has the comeback cost her? Rolling Stone has Britney's full story in the issue of Rolling Stone that hits newsstands this week. "I feel like an old person now," Spears tells RS's Jenny Eliscu. "I do! I go to bed at, like, 9:30 every night, and I don't go out or anything, you know what I mean? I just feel like an old fart." Spears says she's considering lopping off the weave she's worn since shaving her head in 2007, and counts up her tattoos (they now number seven), giggling.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
