Did Britney‘s much-hyped, not-so-eventful Las Vegasney announcement sort of get you down yesterday? Fear not: The Holy Spearit will always see you through.

We all know by now that B-Girl ain’t exactly keen on interviews/interaction with humans these days. We get, like, one or two word answers max — or something more urban.

Now, everything has changed (REFERENCE). Whether it was getting ill during the 50-minute helicopter ride last night on about 45 minutes of sleep (you betta barf bitch), or just the fact that she was comfortably rocking the spots in a sensible turtleneck, a pair of GAP khakis and a flaw-free ponytail today, Brit suddenly snapped into her reg’lar ol’ self on Extra while chatting with Godney stan Mario Lopez.

Seriously — it’s like a whole new (old) B!

Watch below in wonder and amazement as Britney giddily talks about yesterday’s Good Morning America appearance, her upcoming Britney Spears: Piece Of Me residency, Miley‘s transition into adulthood, her own VMA performances — and yes, even some Saved By The Bell fandom. She’s laughing, smiling — even shrieking with delight in some moments!

It’s absolutely adorkable, and a (much needed) reminder that it’s still Britney, bitch. THIS IS THE GIRL WE KNOW AND LOVE!

Now bring on the “Work Bitch” promo! (And please, no more helicopters.)
