Britney Spears compares her life to prison



While you've been double-checking your DVR to make sure it's ready to record Britney Spears' new documentary, Britney: For the Record on Nov. 30 (10 p.m. on MTV), word 'round the campfire is she calls her whole comeback a sham in the special. You mean deftly orchestrated media spectacles aren't necessarily real? Sad.

"There’s no excitement, there’s no passion," the U.K's Sun quotes Brit saying of her life. "I have really good days, and then I have bad days. Even when you go to jail you know there’s the time when you’re gonna get out. But in this situation, it’s never ending. It’s just like Groundhog Day every day."

What could possibly be wrong with a life in which your dad and a lawyer control how much of your own money you spend, you're stuck going from one public appearance to the next and making sure you look your absolute best all the time is the top priority.

"I think it’s too in control. If I wasn’t under the restraints I’m under, I’d feel so liberated. When I tell them the way I feel, it’s like they hear but they’re really not listening," she continues. "If you do something wrong in your work, you can move on, but I’m having to pay for a long time. I never wanted to become one of those prisoner people. I always wanted to feel free."

That's actually pretty sad, but then, we've seen what Britney would do if left to her own devices. Let's get through this round of the pendulum swing and call it squaresies, okay?
