Britney Spears shared a long post on her Instagram to discuss her interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC in 2003.
She wrote, “Do we dare forget the Diane Sawyer interview in my apartment almost 20 years ago? What was with the ‘You’re in the wrong’ approach?? Geeze… and making me cry???”
She continued, “Seriously though… I lived in my apartment for a year and never spoke to anyone… my manager put that woman in my home and made me talk to her on national television and she asked if I had a shopping problem!!! when did I have a shopping problem?”
The singer also talked about her breakup with Justin Timberlake in 2002 where she revealed how shocked she was and never spoke to anyone for a while. She revealed, “Something I never shared when I had that break up years ago was that I couldn’t talk afterward. I was in shock… pretty lame of my dad and three men to show up at my door when I could hardly speak… two days later they put Diane Sawyer in my living room… they forced me to talk!”
Spears admitted she was a baby then but now she can stand up for herself. She referred to one of Sawyer’s questions, “She said ‘a woman or a girl’ … I would like to say now, ‘Ma’am I’m a catholic slut!!!”
She also wrote about how she was asked about her “shopping problem” to which she wrote that she could spend as much as she wanted.
“She can kiss my white ass,” she wrote about Sawyer.
In addition, Britney also revealed the time she was able to withdraw $300 and felt proud about it though she felt a “maybe a little” embarrassed to share the news. She wrote instead, “I’m more embarrassed for my family for coding the fact that i wasn’t allowed to have cash for so long when I worked my little ass off for them. I’m embarrassed for the state of California for permitting my father to have me work as hard as he worked me all those years and never seeing a dime.”
She also wrote about what it was going on tour and why she won’t be doing it in the future. According to her, “I know I’m not playing in huge arenas with my loud band anymore but I will be honest and say life on the road is hard!! My first three years in the biz and on the road were great but I’ll be completely honest and say that after those three tours and the pace I was going… I don’t think I ever want to do it again. I hated it.”
Meanwhile, she also thanked her celebrity friends including Jennifer Lopez, Donatella Versace, and Betsey Johnson for their presents.
She ended her post with, “Hope you’re all having a wonderful Christmas.”
