I think my voice is okay. I like the feeling that I get when I sing. It's not so much my voice, it's a state that I go into when I sing that I really like.
Britney Spears Quotes
Sometimes I think I'm more comfortable onstage than I am in my own room. When I get onstage, it's kind of like your chance to let go and be something that you're not maybe. It's your time to dream.
I've only slept with one person my whole life. It was two years into my relationship with Justin, and I thought he was the one. But I was wrong!... The most painful thing I have ever experienced was that breakup. We were together so long and I had this vision. You think you're going to spend the rest of your life together. Where I come from, the woman is the homemaker, and that's how I was brought up--you cook for your kids. But now I realize I need my single time.
Who cares if I've had sex? It's nobody's business. Trust me, I'm not going to have a press conference to announce it.
I don't want to say my biggest mistake--I don't want to tell the whole world that. Trust me, I've made plenty. But I don't regret them because they've made me the person that I am right now.
Smoking, drinking, sex -- why is it such a big deal for me? Everything in moderation.
I know this may sound really silly, but when I was younger, I was never really insecure. At all. Never. Now I get insecure sometimes when I go places because people expect celebrities to look a certain way. And there are mornings I wake up and my butt feels fat. But I've learned that it doesn't matter what other people think of you. You just...be. All I can do is be who I am and hope people like that.
I don't like to go to clubs out here [in Hollywood] because everybody's always looking you up and down.
If I fall in love tomorrow with a guy who runs a McDonald's, I'm going to follow my heart. But I think it's easier if you're with someone who is in the business, because they understand.
I adore him. He is the cutest thing in the world, and we talk, but it's nothing serious . . . I wouldn't say we're boyfriend-girlfriend. We hook up every once in a while, and we'll talk. We're closer than me and Lance and Joey and the other guys in the group. Me and Justin are closer, just because we've known each other forever. We talk all the time, but we're not boyfriend and girlfriend. We just hang out.
One show was talking about how guys can have sex without love, so women can do it too? And I have girlfriends who do that. But I just really have to be into someone. If not, what's the purpose?
I wish stories were more about my music instead of the personal questions. It's not about that, it's about the music.
I don't see what the big hoopla is. What's the big deal? I have really strong morals, and just because I look sexy on the cover of Rolling Stone doesn't mean I'm a naughty girl. I'd do it again. I thought the pictures were fine. And I was tired of being compared to Debbie Gibson and all of this bubblegum pop all the time. It shut them up, didn't it?
I know how to drink. Me and my mom will have a glass of wine together, and that's fine. Kids are gonna drink, and the more you say, 'Don't do it,' the more they're gonna want to do it. I stop before [the intoxication] happens. I just sit there and go all quiet, because I hate to lose control.
You want to be a good example for kids out there and not do something stupid. Kids have low self-esteem, and then the peer pressures come and they go into a wrong crowd. That's when all the bad stuff starts happening, drugs and stuff. I think if they find something that keeps them happy — writing, drawing, anything like that — then they'll have confidence.
I don't want to go over the top. If I come out being Miss Prima Donna, that wouldn't be smart. I want to have a place to grow.
I don't want people kissing my butt. If I had a bad show and I know it, don't tell me I had a good show. I hate that. I guess because I'm 17, people think I don't see stuff like that.
