According to EW’s Margeaux Watson the upcoming 90 minute video of a no holds barred, behind-the-scenes look at the life of Britney Spears is full of shocking revelations of what it’s like to be the Princess of Pop.
Just as you’d think, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
After viewing a 33 minute preview of the documentary Britney Spears: For The Record, Watson came away from the screening impressed with the brutal honesty of the film, which followed Britney around for 90 days before and after her last minute appearance on the Video Music Awards.
Here’s a sample:
On the current state of her life:
“Do I know my life is weird? It’s all I’ve ever known. I don’t see it as being weird….I’m kind of stuck in this place and I’m like, How do you deal? I just cope with it every day….It’s better not to feel anything at all and have hope than to feel the other way….It’s bad. I’m sad.” She breaks down into tears. Later, she complains that her life is too in control these days: “It’s like Groundhog Day every day. It’s really boring….Normal is really different for everybody….In my situation, I try to make it as normal as possible for me….It could be a lot worse. There are people out there who have it a lot worse than I do….I used to be a cool chick but I feel like the paparazzi has taken that away from me, like, the way I used to live my life. I used to be a cool chick but I’m not anymore.”
The documentary airs November 30 at 10 PM on MTV. Don’t miss it!
