Now Britney Spears commented on famous recordings for the first time. In a lavish Instagram post, which has since been deleted, the singer attacks Diane Sawyer and her family: Not only was she young and vulnerable at the time, the interview was also the first time she ended her split from speaking Justin Timberlake.
After the relationship, she did not speak a single word for a long time, as Britney Spears explained in the post. They were going to force their father and manager to meet Sawyer. “My boss invited this woman to my house and had me talk to her on national TV,” said Spears, who was only 21 at the time.
Britney Spears notes that Diane Sawyer portrayed her as a scapegoat in an interview – rumor has it that she cheated on Justin Timberlake at the time, which in turn led to the end of the relationship. Spears wrote, “What’s your ‘you did something wrong’ style? And why did it make me cry? Oh my God…”.
Britney Spears: “I’m a Catholic whore!”
Regarding her song “Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman,” the announcer wondered if Britney Spears was a girl or a woman. Spears jokes, “Today I’d like to tell her madam, I’m a Catholic whore!”
Sawyer also claimed that she was addicted to shopping at the time – in fact, the singer was said to have not left her apartment in months. Meanwhile, Spears, recently freed from years of guardianship, is enjoying new freedom and independence in her financial affairs: it is said that she recently filled her with joy and pride simply because she was able to withdraw $300 from an ATM.
