Britney Spears Has Nothing To Say About Troubled Past

04 March 2011

Britney Spears is determined to focus on her music as she gets ready to launch her new album 'Femme Fatale', insisting that she has "nothing to say" about problems in her past.

Britney endured a rocky few years after losing custody of her songs in 2008, due to her refusal to hand them over to ex-husband Kevin Federline at the end of an agreed visitation. Britney was hospitalised twice in a month, and her father took over control of her personal and financial affairs.

Her father's conservatorship still stands at Britney prepares for the launch of her latest comeback album.

But she insists that she will not be talking about her private life in upcoming interviews, wanting to let her music speak for her.

She tells V Magazine, "There's nothing to say. I'll let the music speak for me. I'm past all of that (tabloid gossip). I try to block it all out and not pay attention to anything they write about me in the magazines or online. I'm done with that.

"I have learned to always stay true to myself and never let what other people say about me change who I am. It's a really important lesson that took me a long time to learn."

And Britney says that if she found herself struggling with life in the spotlight, she would give it all up to be a full time mother.

She says, "I'd be a full-time mum, which would be cool. I'd miss my fans and all of the love the most, but I definitely would not miss having my picture taken everywhere I go.

"I think it's easier to let people in when you're younger, but when I became a mother I wanted more privacy for myself and my children."
