We've been seeing lots of tidbits from Britney Spears's documentary, and even more quotes have been leaked following today's special screening. While Britney's life has come a long way in the past couple of years, she still has a lot to say about about her past and the person she once was. Here are highlights:
- On Justin and Kevin: "With Justin, he was a part of the magnitude of what I had become. So when he was gone I was like, What am I supposed to do with myself? I was devastated [by the breakup] but I handled it a lot better than the [split] with Kevin . . . He started to do an album for himself and he started to do things for himself, and I just never saw him anymore . . . When it ended I felt so alone. I didn't really wanna think about the reality of it. I never faced it . . . I just ran."
- In the aftermath of her 2007 meltdown: "My trust has really been battered . . . Sometimes it can get kinda lonely . . . I had totally lost my way. I lost focus. I lost myself. I let certain people into my life that were just bad people . . . because I was lonely . . .I really paid the consequences for that. Big time . . . What the hell was I thinking?"
- On life these days: "Do I know my life is weird? It's all I've ever known. I don't see it as being weird . . . I'm kind of stuck in this place and I'm like, How do you deal? I just cope with it every day....It's better not to feel anything at all and have hope than to feel the other way . . . It's bad. I'm sad." She breaks down into tears. Later, she complains that her life is too in control these days: "It's like Groundhog Day every day. It's really boring . . . Normal is really different for everybody . . . In my situation, I try to make it as normal as possible for me . . . It could be a lot worse. There are people out there who have it a lot worse than I do . . . I used to be a cool chick but I feel like the paparazzi has taken that away from me, like, the way I used to live my life. I used to be a cool chick but I'm not anymore."
It's enlightening to hear a sincere voice coming straight from the source, and we're only more excited to see the full documentary when it airs next week.
