You are not a virgin.
I think it’s great Britney is takin’ a break.
Here we go, 5,, 3 —
You know, the album “stripped” this be nice to talk with her kind of
stripped away all the entourage and all the people and i know she has a
lot to say about the record. It speaks for itself so it will be good just
to talk with her about it.
Okay she’s coming. Everybody we’re going to sound please ….
How are you?
There you go.
Good to see you.
What’s happenin’ how are you.
Good how have you been.
Good it’s been a long time. Good to see you.
Good to see you, too.
I was up late listening to your new album.
Tell me about the beginning of this album when it did really start you
did have a chunk of time off when you werehiing about coming back obviouslyt’s
been a while.
Definitely wanted to disappr for a minute from the spotlight and definitely
just had to take a break in all that to save my santy enough to sit down
and gather all the thoughts I’ve written about and kind of gather all that
together and, uhm, be able to form it into song form.
Even initially you weren’t even thrilled with gefldz ie being your first
single off the first album. Did that sort of set off that initial image
you kind of got from that, doing a genie pose and it seemed it happened
so fast you became that image before you had a chance to stop it.
Exactly. I think it was very catchy and sellable and me being 17 years
old, so green to the whole thing but so wanting to be a part of making
[Inaudible] The studio, making music was a dream to me it was like okay
I’ll be what i need to be and go where I need to go, like i want this dream
to come true and before you know you are living a life or image that wasever
really you. I was never really great at being the all-american pop princess
ha-ha cookie cutter virginal thing. I was never really good at that and
final I us a able to be like you know what I’ll just be me and strip everything
down to just, you know, who i really am like it or not.
You are not a virgin?
Uhh, ha-ha that’s
I heard that, actually you know, dirrty isn’t really indicative of the
whole album are you worried people who see the video and hear the song
take it for what it is will sort of judge this revival of where you are
at now based on that,lmlmost what happened with “genie” in a way.
People are always so judgmental and will think whatever they want to.
Isn’t it what it is, it is i just turned 21 friday night not like get
your — I’m gettin’ my girls and get your boys and let’s go out can you
really express how things have changed from that 17 year-old to now and
hasn’t time just flown don’t you talk about that in the record.
Yeah I’ve been hurt a lot, betrayed the same thing everybody goes through
and made a record about it. I was really honest and hope and felt pretty
vulnerable at times making the record.
Where do you find your strength. Do you pray?
Yeah, i do.
Do you write?
I definitely pray. I definitely write.
Hit the bottle.
Hit the bottle.
How do you get through it people when they go through tough times maybe
want to know what christina does, drama for you.

— A supporter she’s like that’s a good video. She got really offended
because mtv had actually made me change a couple of scenes they weren’t
thated about to be changed or whatever in my opinion because I’m sorry
rap videos and all this stuff like they show all the time like my mom got
mad she was like christina it’s a total sexist thing, i swear it is because
I’m serious it’s like you know you get like what mystical came out like
