When I’ve been heavier or I haven’t met my own standards, it’s been a personal choice to get back in shape — not because of anyone else’s opinions.
Britney Spears Quotes
I’m OCD. I’m like to the point where I’m completely anal and he’s [fiancé Jason Trawick] the complete opposite so we really but heads in that department.
I guess I’ve been under the microscope so long that I don’t even pay attention to the nonsense anymore. I gave up getting upset about things people make up about me a long time ago.
When things take a long time, I just get really stubborn. When I know that things are supposed to go a certain way and when it's my time of the month.
If my sons told me they wanted to be in the entertainment business, I’d lock them in their rooms until they turned 30.
I don’t like going out. I hate clubs. I hate being around too many people. I love my home and staying in bed and watching Dancing With the Stars or reading a Danielle Steel novel.
I've been through a lot, and there's a lot people don't know. Sometimes it can get lonely 'cause you don't open the gate. I'm stuck in this place, and I just cope every day.
Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom. Till this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD. I had a manager from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce. I was so overwhelmed I think that I was in a little shock too. I didn't know who to go to. I realized how much energy and love I had put into my past relationship when it was gone because I genuinely did not know what to do with myself, and it made me so sad. I confess, I was so lost.
I am 25 and I do still have a lot to learn, and I am going to make mistakes everyday, and I am sure every mistake I make will probably be on CNN or Good Morning America.
It's so funny how many stories are put out there about people. It's like we all want our side of the story out there as well, but at the end of the day only a few people care to hear what is really going on since the bad is always so much more interesting than the truth. I don't know why, but this is so weird to me. I used to be angry at the tabloids for printing horrible things about me, but now I try to just be numb to what I see . . . We all want a certain image of ourselves out there, and at some point we all do really care what other people think or we wouldn't be here.
I think with anybody who’s doing well in the public eye or whatever, there’s always gonna be a shift because people don’t wanna see somebody happy all the time. And they’re gonna try to take shots at people ... I think that’s just cruel, you know? I think that’s cruelty when you judge people.
I can’t go anywhere without someone judging me...I did it with my dad. I’d sit on his lap and I drive. We’re country. I know I’m a good mom.
Nothing gets to him … Not my man. And that’s why I married him, because he’s not a shallow motherfucker Hollywood actor-guy . . . I’ve met grown men in this business that are a lot older than Kevin and they think I’m this dumb blonde, because I’m quote-Britney Spears-unquote. Men in Hollywood are just — oh, my God, it’s horrible.
I was the most famous, popular, well-paid, sexy pop idol in all America… before I was even old enough to vote! Once I turned 18, there was nowhere to go but down. That’s a terrible thing for a young girl – to know that the rest of her life is nothing but a decades-long ramp leading straight down to ignominy. And of course I had not been taught any other way to be happy besides fame! So that’s why I’m so tormented – I’m the Orson Welles of slutty-dressed pop stars. Even worse than that – at least Orson Welles was remembered for CITIZEN KANE, which he directed while in his 20s.That movie is still considered classic today. But10 years from now, no one will remember my music, just my midriff and possibly my breasts, and I know this. And it eats at me like cancer.
My prerogative right now is to just chill and let all the other overexposed blondes on the cover of Us Weekly be your entertainment.
Marrying Kevin was the last thing I was thinking about doing. But then I said, 'You know what? This is my life and I don't care what people think. I'm going to get married. I'm in love with him.' I kissed a bunch of frogs and finally found my prince. I feel like I've found my happily ever after.
