Britney Spears: Back In The Spotlight

martes, 2 de diciembre de 2008 |

Britney Spears is definitely back among the highlights of the music industry. The controversial pop star, who in recent years has earned more headlines for her personal life than for her musical endeavors, will try to pop up her career with the release of her sixth studio album, "Circus," follows last year's "Blackout." Spears reportedly plans to support the new album with a spring tour. The arena trek would be her first since her 2004 outing, which reportedly grossed more than $30 million.

Along with her flourishing music career, the singer also opened up during some interviews unveiled this weekend. In "For the Record," a documentary that aired on MTV on Sunday night, the pop singer finally talked about her recent life in the spotlight. "I have good days and I have bad days," she said. "Sometimes it's too much."

However we cannot say that we got to know or even understand her better, despite the sincerity this documentary had promised. We found out she is somewhat bored, lonely, afraid to trust others, that she was involved with "bad people," that she wishes she had just gone back to Louisiana after her split from Kevin Federline and that she loves her babies, both of whom are still in her ex's custody. The documentary followed Britney Spears over a period of sixty-days. While it was marketed as a “nothing is off limits” peek into her personal life, one which would provide insight into the troubled mind responsible for the last few years of Spears madness, it was clearly more of a promotional tool.

In other words the whole point of the documentary was to underline the hidden metaphor behind the title of Britney’s latest album, “Circus.” Is it our turn now to feel a bit sorry for her and her cruel life?

Moreover looking back at what she described as a "hell of a year," Britney Spears told Glamour magazine. The back-on-top pop princess is on the cover of Glamour magazine with a hot new body and her new album has received positive early reviews.
"I have had to work hard at getting [my body] back to where it used to be," Spears tells Glamour in its January issue. "I used to be obsessed with working out ... But I can't get motivated right now because I'm so focused on my music." Still, Spears, who will turn 27 on Tuesday, says that with her efforts comes a new appreciation for her body. "Recently I started to appreciate my body a bit more from before I had kids," the singer says.

Thus Britney got another chance to talk about her two children and about how much they changed her life. The singer says she likes being home and spending time with her sons, Preston, 3, and Jayden, 2. "As a mother, the one thing that always goes through your head is, 'You're never enough. You never can be enough – or do enough – for your kids,'" she says. "It's a never-ending issue for me. I had to learn: Don't beat yourself up so much ... You have to take it one day at a time, do the best that you can and enjoy yourself.
She also wishes for them to have a normal life, and be able to offer them a father figure sometime in the future.
