    Default More revelations from Britney Spears' Rolling Stone article



    The new issue of Rolling Stone offers some insight into what has lead to Britney Spears’ downward spiral.
    Among the revelations:

    As a teen, the singer’s mother, Lynne, allowed her to get breast implants. But after going under the knife, “she regretted the implants, particularly because her chest was still growing,” a friend says. “When her natural breasts became larger, she had the implants removed.” But Spears kept the surgery a secret. Adds the friend, “When other girls did their boobs [they admitted it] and moved on, but Britney was brought up to lie about herself.”

    The singer never bonded with her father Jamie, mostly because of his heavy drinking. “It was upsetting for Britney Spears to be around her dad,” a pal tells Rolling Stone. “He came backstage one night, and he was wasted. She was devastated. Britney would tell friends that her father was emotionally abusive.”

    When Britney was just beginning her career in the 1990s, she was bribed to work around the clock. “If she didn’t want to come out of the trailer, the label would come to me saying, ‘Please talk to Britney, make sure she performs, and we’ll take you on a shopping spree,’” a close friend says. Adds her former driver: “We would wake Britney up at 6 a.m., and she’d work on a video for three or four days straight for 20 hours a day.”

    Throughout her career, she lobbied “ to appear sluttier,” the magazine claims, to appear more mature. (As a kid, her parents let her walk around the house naked, Rolling Stone reports.) “Every girl in America was wearing crop tops and booty shorts, and Britney felt like she was being held back,” says a friend. “She would joke about wanting to do videos topless.”

    Darrin Henson, who was the choreographer for several videos from Britney’s first album, says: “Britney would come offstage after performing in front of 15 to 16,000 people and start crying because she thought she was terrible. The girl doesn’t know who she is.”

    • She reportedly began sleeping with Wade Robson around the time of the 2001 VMAs. “In February 2002, Timberlake discovered a ... note from Robson in Britney’s room. Britney and Timberlake were performing on Saturday Night Live that night, and they sat backstage miserable — he refused to accept her apologies,” an insider says. “The breakup was a terrible shock, particularly as it was followed by Britney’s parents divorce two months later.”

    Britney’s 2002 split from Justin Timberlake devastated her. “Justin had his head screwed on so straight... He became the great force in her life, but it started a pattern — she began to look for guys to help her get away from the people who could control her,” an insider says.

    Britney’s original concept for her 2004 video “Everytime”: “To die in an overflowing bathtub with pills and booze strewn around, and get reincarnated as a baby,” a source says. But Spears’ label objected, and she refused to shoot initally. “Finally, Britney agreed to do it, but first she said, ‘I need three Red Bulls, and call my doctor,’” the insider says. The video, which co-starred bad boy actor Stephen Dorff, ended up featuring her running away from the paparazzi before drowning in a bathtub.

    I'd have become a mass murderer, I think. I'm surprised she's merely insane.

    It doesn't sound like the ideal childhood, but I've known people with way worse than that.

    She never HAD to be a singer though.

    Her Mum seems like one of those mothers who didn't succeed herself and has to live through her daughter.

    Exactly. Oh and what kind of surgeon gives breast implants to a girl who's breasts are still developing?

    Us magazine added these highlights:

    During a January 13 shopping trip to Betsey Johnson in Sherman Oaks, California, with paparazzo beau Adnan Ghalib, Britney threw a temper tantrum after her credit card was denied. She screamed, “F—k those b---ches! These idiots can’t do anything right!” in a “base animalistic shriek only heard at family member’s deathbed,” an insider says. She then threw “a big bottle of soda on the floor…on piles of discarded merchandise,” before changing into a new shirt, throwing her old one on the floor, and storming out.
    During the same Betsy Johnson spree, a fan asked for a picture for her little sister. Britney turned to Ghalib and screamed, “‘I don’t want her talking to me! Then she whips around and stares the girl deep in the eyes, her lips almost vibrating with anger. ‘I don’t know who you think I am, b-tch … but I’m not that person.’”
    Sam Lutfi — who was recently slapped with a restraining order — tells the magazine he may pen a book based on his troubled days with the singer. “You know, this is so much more than a magazine article — we’ve been doing dictation, she’s been telling me her story, and I’ve been writing it all down. It would make a great book!” Lutfi says.

    While we're all waiting for Britney to make a pit stop at Rite Aid for more lipsticks, have a look at this old interview with Blender: Britney Busts Loose! Article on Blender :: The Ultimate Guide to Music and More

    I thought it was kinda interesting.

    Damn, she comes across as a spoiled bratty bitch in that interview! Why didnt we notice this before?!

    These parts are interesting:
    "Did you hear about how U.S. soldiers found a picture of you on the wall inside one of Saddam Hussein’s palaces in Iraq?

    “They did? That’s scary.” She picks up a bottle of water. “So what?” she suddenly asks, suspicious that Blender is trying to pin something bad on her.

    In the wake of the September 11 attacks, you were mentioned as one of the reasons people were hostile to America. You were alleged to represent the immorality and hegemony of American culture.

    “What the hell are you talking about?”

    Did you ever hear that?

    “This interview,” she says, “is way too deep.”

    and

    Did you find it odd when you were interviewed about The Kiss on CNN by a bow-tied Tucker Carlson?

    Spears looks completely blank. She does this a lot. “Oh,” she suddenly remembers. “The fuddy-duddy guy? He was so sophisticated. It was like, ‘Go take a Valium.’ Bless his heart. He was really into the interview a bit too much.”

    Eh, I never paid much attention to her before the K-Fed days. So it's all catch-up for me.
