Britney Writes A New Heartfelt Letter To Fans About Rehab & Her Life

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Dear Fans,

I just wanted to reach out to all of you and explain some of the things that I have been faced with recently.

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. I saw Tyra Banks once get really upset and cry on her show because they made her look fat. 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.

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.

This letter is to not place blame on anyone, although I do see the world with a completely different set of eyes now. Being in that vulnerable state and taken to dinners and parties with friends and finding out later you paid for everything was a huge learning lesson for me. I think the whole problem was letting too many people into my life. You never know another persons intentions or what another person wants. I feel I was too open and looking for answers when I had it all to begin with. I have had to cut so many people out of my life. It is so sad, because if anyone is a family person…it is me. When I was little I remember every night watching movies with my family and feeling so at peace. Dancing and singing all the time just like a little girl should. Now recently I find with my children that I want them to have that feeling all of the time. I am having to face a lot of things right now since I have children of my own. A lot of insecurities from when I was little are coming up again. It is like we are never good enough.

I know everyone thinks that I am playing the victim, but I am not and I hate what is going on right now so much. Maybe this is the reason for this letter…to maybe allow people to look at me differently. It is like when you are a real woman and say what you feel and how you think things are supposed to be, that people just say you are a “bitch.”

I feel like some of the people in my life made more of some issues than was necessary. I also feel like they knew I was beginning to use my brain for a change and cut some ties, so they wanted to be in more control of my life than me. I think it is actually normal for a young girl to go out after a huge divorce. I think it was a bigger issue because I had not gone out in such a long time. 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. I am only human people and I love you for still loving me.

I am sitting here at home and it is 6:25 and both of my sons are asleep. I am truly blessed to have them in my life. Everyday is so surreal. Life in general is so surreal and crazy.

I just hope this letter made some of you think a little bit more of me and where I am coming from. I just want the same things in life that you want…and that is to be happy. It is just so weird because everyone has their own perception of me and how they think I really am. It is so weird how stories are told. There is your side, my side, and the truth. Somebody has to figure it out. I guess we will never really understand or figure out life completely. That’s God’s job. I can’t wait to meet him…or her.

Love, Britney

Quote of the month…
It is ok to disagree with people regarding certain issues. You’re not being true to yourself if you succumb to others opinions because you feel guilty.

New Message From Britney, Recording With Kara Dioguardi

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

In a new message posted Wednesday on her official Web site, Britney Spears is thanking her fans for their support.

The singer, pictured wearing only a blonde pageboy blonde wig and long white gloves, writes: “The reason for this letter is to let everyone know that their prayers have truly helped me. I am so blessed that you care enough about me to be concerned and [i] will continue to live in this brighter state with all of you by my side during this trying time.”

Spears, who checked out of rehab in March after a month-long stay, continues: “We are all lights of the world and we all need to continuously inspire others and look to the higher power. You are all in my prayers. Godspeed. Love, Britney.”

The singer, 25, has been easing back into performing after a three-year absence in which she got married, had two kids and got divorced.

She had been working on a new album before she checked into rehab, and two weeks ago she performed four shows at House of Blues clubs in Southern California. She’s also been working out at a North Hollywood dance studio to get back in shape.

Songwriter Kara DioGuardi, who is working with Spears on her upcoming album, tells PEOPLE that she was in the recording studio with Spears Monday and that the singer “works really hard.”

“People don’t realize what a good singer she is and she has the incredible ability to put herself in the music and it elevates the song because she really brings her own vibe to it,” DioGuardi said at BMI 2007 Pop Music Awards Tuesday. “I just hope her comeback is awesome because if anybody deserves it, it’s her.”

Loads Of New Album Info And Official Release Date

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Don’t expect any insight on Britney’s breakdown on her forthcoming album — yet another collaborator says the LP will just be about good times.

“She didn’t let none of her personal life into what she was doing,” Nate “Danja” Hills said. “There was no, ‘I need to let it all out.’ She said she deals with that in another way.”

As one of Britney Spears’ main collaborators, Danja has co-written and produced seven to eight songs with the singer so far, in sessions with songwriters Keri Hilson and Corte Ellis. Other songwriters and producers on the yet-untitled effort include Pharrell, Sean Garrett, Scott Storch, Dr. Luke, J.R. Rotem, Ne-Yo, T-Pain and Kara DioGuardi (see “Ne-Yo Gets Frisky With An ‘Ex,’ Avoids K-Fed Songs For Britney” and “Britney’s New Music Is ‘The Next Level,’ Producer Says”).

Hills’ sessions with Spears started in July — before the divorce, the all-night partying, the head-shaving and rehab (see “Britney Spears, Kevin Federline Reach Divorce Settlement”). He says that despite all the bumps in her personal life, her professional life has remained right on track. “As far as her work ethic, I haven’t seen anybody come in like that and do what you go to do,” Hills said. “Boom, boom, boom, and get it done. So as an artist? She’s ready to go.”

Spears’ game plan to make a fun, danceable album has also remained steady, Hills said. Instead of scrapping tracks and starting over once her life started changing, the singer stuck to her strategy to keep the tunes as high-energy, uptempo — and decidedly private — as possible. “She wanted to stay away from being personal,” the producer said. “It’s fun, it’s basic and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s about feeling good, celebrating womanhood. And if you don’t dance to it, I really don’t know what you’re listening to.”

While the song titles have yet to be “100 percent” determined, Hill said that overall, Spears’ sound is “bigger” and “more mature” than what we’ve heard from her before. “It’s a new Britney,” he said. “I come from hip-hop, so it’s underlined with hip-hop, but I throw it down. It’s got everything, it’s electric, it’s just wild.” One song sounds like it belongs in a video game, while another has a hook and chorus that makes him laugh just thinking about it: “It’s weird! It’s catchy, but it’s weird. It’s hot.”

Now that Hills is moving into the mixing stage, he’s just waiting to find out if any of his songs are contenders to be the album’s first single, which is due to impact around the end of the summer, according to Spears’ record label. “It’s ready to hit the clubs,” Hills said. “You’re going to hear it getting ready to go to the clubs, while you’re getting your clothes on, in the car on the way to the clubs, everywhere. You’re just going to hear it. Be prepared.”
