Britney Spears Quotes
"I love London. I have to get a place there. It's the one place I feel anonymous. I just love it. When I'm not working that's where I feel at home. I love the clothes, the shops - I try to stay as near to the shops as I can. I love Knightsbridge in London and Harvey Nichols is such a cool shop."
Saying about Christina Aguilera in an American magazine: "She comes up to me in a club in front of all these people and tries to put her tongue down my throat!" I say, "It's good to see you," and she goes, "Well, you're not being real with me." I was like, "Well, Christina, what's your definition of real? Going up to girls and kissing them after you haven't seen them for two years?"
On her relationship with Madonna: "Maybe she was my husband in another life."
"(Parents) should not be concerned (if their children want to copy her) because they should trust their kids and believe in their kids."
On what effect her steamy performances have on kids: "It's a visual thing. That's why I'm here right now, because I dreamed of these moments. Kids need that. If they don't dream, they have what?"
"I feel comfortable in my skin. ... I used to run around my house naked when I was 13."
"I'm not at all wild. Maybe I need to get out and see the world a little bit."
About Madonna: "I don't listen to anybody. Nobody can tell me anything. I'm stubborn. If somebody tells me not to do something, I do it. But I do listen to Madonna. For some reason I listen to her. I know that sounds really silly. It's nice to have somebody just to ask questions to. She's a visual artist and a deep artist as well. I like the way she thinks. I wish I could be inside her head. I like Madonna's career, and what she's done with her family."
About her former lover, singer Justin Timberlake: "I'll always have feelings for Justin. OK, not feelings for him, but he'll always have a special place in my heart."
About losing her virginity: "I've only slept with one person my whole life. It was two years into my relationship with Justin (Timberlake), and I thought he was the one. But I was wrong! I didn't think he was gonna go on Barbara Walters and sell me out."
About her breakup with singer Justin Timberlake: "The most painful thing I've ever experienced was that breakup," Spears says. "We were together so long and I had this vision. You think you're going to spend the rest of your life together. Where I come from, the woman is the homemaker, and that's how I was brought up -- you cook for your kids. But now I realize I need my single time."
"Three weeks ago I was with a psychoanalyst. He explained things about my love life that I found very impressive, almost scary."
"He (the shrink) said I had a problem with closeness and intimacy, that I was afraid of letting myself fall for someone and of being hurt.â€?
It threw me off track. He was my first love.â€? (about Justin Timberlake
"But then who is really interested in whether I have had sex or not? It's nobody's business. I'm no different to any other 20-year-old apart from my celebrity."
"I have lost my innocence - you grow up faster in the spotlight of show business."
"I have never tried to hide who I really am but until a year ago, I wanted to be someone else."
"I was too nice, too sweet, everyone's darling. That was a mistake. I experiment and I have no problem with nudity or sex.â€?
"When you're comfortable with someone you love, the silence is the best."
"Justin [Timberlake] is everything, and what more could you want in a person? He's funny. He's cute. He's great. He just understands. I get him and he gets me, and that's cool." - Teen People. February 2001.
"I'm attracted to guys who are really confident and make conversation." YM Magazine.
"Marry Prince William? I would love that. After all, who wouldn't want to be a princess?"
