"Recording this album has helped take my mind off certain things. For me, my music is therapy," Britney Spears tells Glamour magazine about her album "Circus".
Britney Spears covers another major print media that is Glamour, opening up in the magazine's January 2009 issue about her life and struggle post her public break down, crediting her music to have helped her going through the difficult times in her life. She also tells all about how she tries to find love, comfort, and peace to get back on the spotlight.
"The whole year has been a hell of a year for me," she tells Glamour when recalling the old days she lost the custody of her sons; Sean Preston and Jayden James, shaved her head bald, and was forced to enter the hospital for psychiatric treatment. She reveals further, "I have been working so hard on my album, but I didn't know exactly where I stood with everyone. When I received the awards [at the Video Music Awards] and [the audience] stood for me, it showed me how much love is out there" referring to her sixth major studio effort "Circus." She adds, "Recording this album has helped take my mind off certain things. For me, my music is therapy."
Now that she's having a much calmer life, Britney admits, "I don't like going out. I hate clubs. I hate being around too many people. I love my home and staying in bed and watching Dancing with the Stars or reading a Danielle Steel novel. I'm kind of boring." Besides, she also spends her time hitting the gym. "My body ... completely changed [after giving birth], and I have had to work hard at getting it back," so she explains to Glamour magazine. And with the year 2009 is approaching, she plans to "stop worrying so much ... learn how to be happier, just in general .... learn to take things not so seriously. And to stop biting my nails!"
Britney Spears is waiting in anticipation for the U.S. release of "Circus" on Tuesday, December 2, which coincides with her 27th birthday. On that day, she is going to perform on "Good Morning America" and is expected to sing tracks from the LP.
