Britney Spears Clarifies ‘Break’, Voices Tension With Jive

Britney Spears in a cropped coat

posted a new message to fans on Monday. In the posting, Spears clarified that when she said she was taking a “break”, it meant she was “taking a break from being told what to do.” Spears also discussed filming and co-directing the new video for ‘Do Something’, which apparently has caused friction with Jive Records. “As much fun as I had, I have to say I was a little disappointed that I still had to convince my record label that making this video was the right thing to do at this time,” Spears said. The singer added that she’s added a new dog to the family named Lucky.

    But if you think that some celebs don’t have talent, just ignore them! It’s very disgusting to me and other Maddy/Britney fans to get here and see a lot of people dissing our idols. I don’t hate your idols, I just don’t care about them

    Are you serious? She is releasing Do Somethin’? That’s awesome. “co-directing the new video for ‘Do Something'” Wow, how cool. I can’t wait to see the video :D But it’s obvious she is lying. Oh well xP I’m excited! “Why don’t ya do somethin” Nice letter.

    It was a really good idea for Britney to start writing and posting these updates herself. Some of them are pretty good, who knew Britney could form a complete sentence. I find these somewhat interesting.

    What is with the ungrateful attitude toward the people that MADE her a hit? She had NO control before, yet they made the decisions to make her rich and famous. Now she disses those with talent just because they directed her? Tasteful. Looks like someone has developed an ego of her own. Also – it was VERY clear that her break was about starting a family. Now that she has changed her mind once again, she has to ‘redefine’ what she said. Some advice – stop writing the idiotic letters and telling people what you are doing and why- then you don’t have to get caught in blatant LIES, revise and cover up. Get a PR person, please. Also… “I even came up with all the choreography (EITHER SHE IS LYING AGAIN OR IT’S GOING TO BE ONE CRAPPY DANCE SET) and styled the entire shoot myself using Juicy Couture clothing.” (SINCE SHE HAS SUCH GREAT TASTE IN COUTURE/STYLE. This is going to be SCARY.) I have a feeling this video (if not the song alone) is going to hurt her career tremendously. I still can’t believe she included that crappy song on her GH.

    If I were BS’ PR rep, I would tell her to lie and say she meant –MAKING a break, instead of TAKING a break. I would also sign her up for English classes. Sad – being that her mother is a teacher.

    It’s obvious that Britney is trying to channel someone other than herself, and trying to be ‘bad’ and unique. Do Somethin (to me) is sounds like a demo track from an American Idol contestant.

  9. SpiceSquirrel says:

    I like Britney but she’s always been a total liar. She clearly meant taking a break from the business in her earlier letter. Either her record company or family convinced her to keep going with her career or the thrill of constant sex with Kevin died down (as it does with every couple) and she got bored. Either way, I’m glad she’s back although that “Mona Lisa” song makes me want to puke.

  10. GuiltyPleasures says:

    Britney, Britney, Britney you clearly meant you wanted to take a break from the business. Just say you got bored sitting home all day waiting hand and foot on that loser. It’s okay, everyone gets bored and wants to go back to work sooner or later. Can’t wait for the new CD, I like Mona Lisa.

  11. divalamb says:

    Honestly I was very excited she was taking a break. She needs to she’s over hyped and overplayed. What the hell is that about Bille Woodruff being some hungry, undiscovered director? He done tons of videos! Just cause her country ass doesn’t know him or his work doesn’t make him unknown. Do your homework Britney. He directed the “Honey” movie. She should reconsider this “break”.

  12. Dreamcatcher says:

    I love reading these updates from my girl. I can’t wait to see the video. She needed to take control of her career and co-directing the video is a good start. Can’t wait to see it.

  13. Potrzebie says:

    Personally, I liked the song “Do Something” a hell of lot a more than “Me Against the Music”, “My Prerogative”, or the (unfinished) “Mona Lisa”, so I’m looking forward to the video release. And I’m glad “Do Something” isn’t another song about the trials and tribulations of being a superstar.
