Britney Spears’s documentary may have been all about taking us behind the scenes of the making of her Las Vegas show, but she didn’t mind opening up about one of the hardest times of her life.
“There was a time in my life when I couldn’t ever leave the house without 20 cars following me,” Britney recalled. “I felt very alienated from the public. But as time passed, they lightened up and they kind of went away after I wouldn’t come out of the house for like two years.”
Staying home for two years? Yikes! But Brit was in survival mode, and she did what she had to do.
“This is all I’ve known all my life,” she said. “Cameras, being followed, being part of the industry.”
But although Britney’s used to the celebrity treatment, she’s still not sure it’s one she was ever meant to be a part of.
“I’m not really made for this industry,” she confessed, chalking it up to being way too shy and modest. And since she’s not someone who enjoys being in the spotlight all the time, living up to the challenge of a life with virtually no privacy has taught her a lot about herself.
“There’s a saying [that says] you’re defined by who you become while you’re under pressure. And it’s true,” Britney said. “It’s show business, and the show must go on.”
