Britney Spears' sons think she is a ''superhero''.

The 30-year-old pop star's boys, Sean Preston, seven, and Jayden James, six, love watching her on 'The X Factor' USA and they are convinced she has special powers when she is on the TV talent show.

Speaking to the new issue of Lucky magazine, Britney said: ''The boys try to figure out where I go when I go film 'X Factor'. They're like, 'Mommy's going off to be a superhero.' ''

Since joining the programme, the 'Hold It Against Me' singer has been seen sitting on the panel with Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid looking great in a variety of bright, figure-hugging dresses.

Britney admits her style icons are former 'American Idol' judge Jennifer Lopez because she is a ''classic beauty'' and

'Sex and the City' star Sarah Jessica Parker because ''her looks are really bright and funky and young''.

Britney has had to endure a series of shocking claims made by her ex-manager SAM LUTFI over the past several days in court, including allegations about her drug use.

Sam is suing Britney for 15 percent of her earnings over a four-year period for which he claims she verbally agreed he would represent her.

However, the singer's lawyer Joel Boxer claims Sam was never legally her manager and has no grounds to sue.
