Balancing mommy duty and her music career – it's all in day's work for Britney Spears.
After spending Tuesday with her two sons Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, Spears switched into pop-star mode, arriving at L.A. restaurant and nightclub Social Hollywood to shoot the video for her tabloid-bashing single "Piece of Me" – the second single off her album Blackout. (It's being directed by Wayne Isham, who helmed Spears's "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" video.)
Spears and her backup dancers donned identical blond bob wigs and black trench coats.

There will be no peaceful, easy feeling for Britney Spears.
Despite strong early sales and general critical approval (including PEOPLE's own three-star review), the singer's new album, Blackout, failed to claim the top slot on "The Billboard 200" in the music-industry trade publication.
Instead, thanks to a revised tracking policy, Billboard announced that the The Eagles' Long Road to Eden won the week. The album, available at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club, sold 711,000 copies compared to Spears's 290,000. (Previously, albums sold exclusively though select retailers were not eligible for most Billboard charts.)
"We would have preferred to make this decision earlier," said Geoff Mayfield, Billboard's director of charts, "but only became aware within the last 24 hours that Wal-Mart would be willing to share the data for this title with Nielsen SoundScan."
The bad news came just one day after Spears was ordered to pay $120,000 in lawyer fees for her ex Kevin Federline.
