According to Britney Spears, a comeback ain’t all its cracked up to be.
According to the Daily Mail, the singer, whose father Jamie Spears is still the conservator of her finances and affairs, now says her tightly controlled existence feels ‘like Groundhog Day’.
In the new fly-on-the-wall 90 minute documentary “Britney: For The Record," (airing on Nov 30 on MTV) executive-produced by Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph, the Pop Princess admits:
‘There’s no excitement, there’s no passion. I have really good days, and then I have bad days. Even when you go to jail, y’know, there’s the time when you’re gonna get out. But in this situation, it’s never ending. It’s just like Groundhog Day every day.’
Britney believes she is still being forced to ‘pay’ for her well-documented meltdown.
She says: "I think it’s too in control. If I wasn’t under the restraints I’m under, I’d feel so liberated. When I tell them the way I feel, it’s like they hear but they’re really not listening."
‘If you do something wrong in your work, you can move on, but I’m having to pay for a long time.’
‘I never wanted to become one of those prisoner people. I always wanted to feel free.’
‘I think I’ve learnt my lesson now and enough is enough.’
The doc features behind-the-scenes footage of the singer and her talking – a lot – about her life over the past two years. With VMA awards, raves for appearances with Madonna, and her sixth album, Circus, due out on Dec. 2, you’d think she’d be over the moon.
Dec 2 is also her 27th birthday. But is Britney really happy? Doesn’t sound like it, does it? Are we surprised?
