Britney Spears

Britney spears - Sitater

Film

"I was really nervous at first. I'm used to performing on stage and being confident with that, but this was just a whole new territory for me - it was so different".

"That's one of the things that inspired me to do the movie. The whole idea of these girls being so close and going through so much together; because, still to this day, I have my three best friends, Courtney, Jansen and Laurelyn, and I think that's very inspiring."

"Everything the critics like I hate, and everything that they hate I like. I like light-hearted, girl-flick, love story movies. It's easy to watch, not that deep."

"I definitely knew that acting was something I eventually wanted to do."

"It wasn't easy for me. The whole transition was a little scary at first, but I'm so happy I did it."

"I'm ambitious and I like to challenge myself and I like to push myself and so it made me want to really go there just to see if I could do it. Just to see."

"It's not even so much about it being the biggest movie in the world, as long as my fans can go to it and be touched by it in its own way."

"I think that it's up to the parent to decide. My sister's 10 years old and she went to go see the movie and she loved it,"

"Personally, the main crossroad in my life was probably three years ago when I left my small town and went to the big city to pursue my dreams and get a record deal."

"I don't personally like the fact of kissing other guys. It doesn't make me feel like a million dollars, no. But I do accept that it's just acting."

"I had a week before the movie where I really just sat down and really thought through the character and who she was. I think probably two weeks into it I really had a good idea of who she was and what she was about. But I think just playing her every day and the more interaction with the other characters made me feel her character even more so."

"We started to look at the script and I thought to spice it up a little bit, it'd be fun to put in a song or too."

"It's cool cos when you mess up, you can do it over again."

"I found it fascinating because you could do one line so many different ways."

"I was so used to being onstage and getting that instant reaction, you know?"

"I thought it would be very funny for the three girls to be into NSync."

"I didn't feel any pressure to do the movie. It was something I wanted to do, I was on my third tour and I wanted to express myself in a different way, to challenge myself, to see it I could do it. The door was open and I just had to walk through."

"It was very nerve-wracking, but after a little while I lost the fact that it was me and I looked at myself as the character of Lucy."

"[Crossroads] is not a Hollywood movie, it's a real movie."

"I guess the most important thing they [characters from Crossroads] learn is that it's not where you come from but where you're going."

"Crossroads was really good. I'm proud of it. I didn't want something that completely starred me and was all about me, me, me. I wanted something that blended in with the other cast, and, basically, I just wanted it to be a good story."

"When your boyfriend breaks up with you, what do you do? You call your girl friend!"

Lucy - Henry, this isn't how I hoped it would be... Henry - That's funny cos this is exactly how I hoped it would be.

Lucy - This is stealing you know. Mimi - It's not stealing if he's in the car with us. Lucy - No, it's kidnapping.

Ben - You all thought I had killed a man? Lucy, Mimi, Kit - Yeah! Ben - What the hell were you thinking getting in the car with homicidal maniac?!

Mimi - I wanna go to the lady's room. Where is it again? Lucy - Third bush after the rock over there.

Ben - What happened? Lucy - She said she never wanted me. She said that Dad had "made" her have me, and that I was just a mistake.

Kit - It's her lost Luce. Lucy - It's weird tho... I don't have a mother. Mimi - You have us.

Mimi 2 Lucy - They said I lost the baby. Lost it... Like it were my keys or something.

Kit - Mimi and I were talking and we were thinking-- Mimi - That you need to stay and go to the audition. Lucy - Y'all, I can't do that. Mimi - Kit and I voted and you lost, so you have to.

Lucy - This time we didn't make any wishes for the future. We said goodbye to our past. Now, non of us has any idea of where life is gonna take us, cos what we have is now. And right now we have each other.

"I was so excited [about Austin's Powers cameo]. I've seen the first two films and I think he's the funniest man in the world. It was hard to keep in character, trying to be this sexy vixen while he pelvic dances and cracks me up."

Klær og mote

"Why do I dress in such skimpy way? I'm sorry if you think I dress that way, it kind of hurts my feelings that you think that. But how I'm dressed now, in baggy pants and a t-shirt, that's how I dress every day. But when I perform I show my belly, and it may be a little bit sexy, but I don't think it's 'skimpy'."

"I like miniskirts. They make me feel sexy."

"In my heart, if someone tells me I can't do something, I'm gonna do it just to prove I can. I would never do anything crazy like drugs or anything like that, but when it comes to clothes and showing your body, I'm really comfortable with myself, so I wear what I want to wear -- I don't care what anybody thinks."

"It's about being a girl, celebrating your womanhood, you'd be lying if you said you didn't want to be sexy."

"It's just that some of my outfit's are so tight I can't wear underwear."

"It sounds silly, but it's too hot to wear full-length T-shirts when I'm dancing."

"When I first started and I wanted to buy a dress, if it was over $50, I would wait two weeks before I would make the decision to go back. Seriously."

"My outfits growing up were sad. I had plaid skirts, cowboy boots, a homemade hat with rhinestones on it and a little tie! It's so weird-a few years ago I was struggling to buy things. Now I'm rich and designers just give me stuff!" .

"I think it's okay if your style keeps evolving, you should keep evolving."

"People around me are like, 'Did you hear what they wrote?' I'm like, 'Yeah.' Honestly, the biggest thing about celebrity is that you call out for judgment. You just put yourself out there. Not everybody's going to like what you wear."

"I love to experiment with clothes and make up and hair - I'm such a girl!"

"I have a whole head of extensions right now, for the photo shoot. It's a web method, it's temporarily glued on, and the glue dissolves. You can wash these and they still look good. Sometimes, I just wish I had my own hair -- these really kind of hurt and they get in the way."

"I was thinking the other day about an outfit I wore to the Billboard Awards, like three years ago. It was orange hot pants and fish-net stockings and this orange bra and this orange freakin' hat, and it was all tie-dyed too. It was obnoxious! I got so much bad press for it. At that moment, I was feeling very feisty and very orange and very out there. And very like, I believe! And it worked." [2003]

"My intentions when I was doing Baby [BOMT] was, honestly, seriously, not to be sexy. When I first saw it I though it was a bit chessy. Just a little bit. So when people was like "oh my goodness, that's so sexy", I say "oh that's cool".

"The other day I had this new stylist and she was like, "Oh we need to get you this new blah collection," and I went across the strret to a little vintage place and brought a five-dollar shirt. If I go to an event and there's this crazy outfit from Prada, s**t, I'm going to wear it. But in everyday life I don't like the hoop-la going on."

"In everyday life, I wear what I like. I seriously just threw this s**t on."

"I’m a Christian. I go to church. But my mom taught us, Don’t be ashamed of your body, it’s a beautiful thing."

"No wonder I get on the worst dressed list because I go out there a bit. Sometimes what I wear is inappropriate but I'm not into gowns and when I'm out at events I guess I kinda stand out. You've got to dress the way you feel otherwise, what's the point?"

"Sometimes you see a girl in a video and you think 'God, she looks like such a slut,' so you've got to make sure you're not too vulgar."

"People say to me, 'Brit, you need to get some new freakin' boots!'" [on her used up butterfly cowboy boots]

"Normally I just do the tight jeans and the little shirt, whatever. But sometimes I want to wear a sequined dress and be a freakin' girl!"

"I'm over the belly thing! I'm never showing my belly again." [Britney On Smash Hits on 2000]

"Sometimes I wonder if there's something wrong with me cos I don't think it's bad to show my belly." [2000]

"[My weirdest characteristic is] the way I walk with my feet turned out. It looks bad sometimes in heels."

"I mean, I'm a girl. Why not?"

"Just because I look sexy on the cover of Rolling Stone doesnt mean I'm a naughty girl."

Rykter

"I'm sad, I'm sad, man," Britney says when she's told of the pictures of her smoking, trying not to smile. "Uh, I don't have a recollection of me ever doing that. I'll have to see the picture."

"I don't care what people say about my hair or my looks, but when they start in on my performance that's when it hurts."

"Obviously, they knew it was false because my breasts arent that big. I guess they just appear bigger on TV and everything."

"In the beginning when I was just starting out, I was really sensitive and would take criticism personally. Now I've learned either to ignore it or laught at it! You have to have that attitude in this business, otherwise you would never survive!"

"The death rumor, I rarely get mad but I did then."

"There's a lot of cute guys here. Who knows, maybe if you're really lucky I might marry you." [San Diego, Tour kickoff, 2/3/04]

"Here’s my band. If we’re lucky I might marry them. Are you from Milwaukee? Do you wanna marry me?" [on tour, March 2004]

"I'm not a drinker but in those four weeks [her break start] I did go out a lot. And it got really, really old."

"I mean, these tabloid papers, they're ridiculous. I mean, they follow you around, they take your pictures, then lie about every move you make!"

"Honestly, I really wanted to see what it was like to be married."

"It's normal. My mistake was announcing I was taking a break. That made it an issue. I thought in my naïve mind that when I'd stopped working that I'd be a normal person again. But no, I was still famous!" [on how pepople didn't approve her break]

"I look at it as it's kind of flattering." [on gossip, March 2004 PopStar! Magazine]

"I get upset at things. Honestly, the only people I worry about is my family and what they think. As long as they know me, that's what matters." [March 2004 PopStar! Magazine]

"Honestly, I think it takes more energy to get mad. Just let them do their thing and do what they do.They get paid to do that. The more you try to make a fuss,the more draining it is." [on paparazzi, March 2004 PopStar! Magazine]

"If the record's good - if it's hot and you see the video and we're working it, it's basically saying the F-you to [every critic] out there. And I think that's cool."

"Do you realize we landed on Mars that same day? Why isn't the world talking about that?" (on her marriage)

"I wish my life were like that! Honestly, I would much rather go to Crunch or lie in my tub and look at the bubbles."- on rumors of her partying up every night

"I think they [the press] thought even before I had sex, that I was going to do it one dayanyway, so I don't really think it makes any difference at all."

"The public knows when someone is being honest. The people know what's real. This might be a weird analogy, but it's like watching Friends. You just get what those people are talking about. It's funny to you, and you're drawn to them."

"Well, there was one night. I didn't dance on the table - it was the sofa. And everybody was standing up, the whole club was, and I stood up for a few seconds, and so now I'm a wild girl and I stand on tables!"

"There's no telling what all these people think, but some people may think I'm into this diva thing, but actually I'm very low-key."

"It hurts so much when people hate me." [2000]

"What have I learned in the last five years? Don't let people influence you. You get advice everyday from everyone-but you have to be your own guide."

Opptredener

"It's great to be able to have something in your heart and be able to share it with the audience. When I get on stage and I get to sing a song that I wrote, it just means so much more, you know, when it comes from you.I don't know if I'm the best songwriter in the world, but I have a lot of fun doing it. And hopefully, I'll get better and grow."

"I remember I read this harsh review about my show, and one of my friends told me that this was the exact same stuff people said about Madonna and it's like, she didn't care. Madonna just came out and was herself I respect that a lot."

"Hurting my knee made me realize how much I love performing. Lordy, I'd be crazy if I couldn't dance anymore!"

"I know I am blessed. Not every girl gets to perform at the tree-lighting ceremony at Rockefeller plaza! I just try to stay grateful for all the good things that have happened to me in my life."

"I don't care what people say about my hair or my looks, but when they start in on my performance that's when it hurts."

"I love dancing! I love it so much."

"I think that when I'm on stage I can use that time to express myself and that's the mood I'm in. I see all these people and I feel like being -- Yeah! you know? It's like you see a football player and they just feel like they can conquer the world. It's just a cool feeling."

"Practice makes perfect. The more I do it the better it gets."

"It sounds silly, but it's too hot to wear full-length T-shirts when I'm dancing."

"When I go on tour I have a blast. That's so much fun."

"I was so excited about Star Search because it was on TV, and that meant people all over the country would be watching me."

"I just have to stay true to myself and do what's right for me."

"I love performing and I'm doing what I love to do. Sometimes it gets a bit crazy like when I go overseas and stuff, but that's just for a couple of weeks."

"It's the best feeling in the world when I'm on stage and I'm singing and the fans are singing the words with me."

"At rehearsals, they kept saying, 'Britney, just get to know the snake.' And I was like, 'I don't want to get to know this snake!'" [on performing with a snake on the MTV VMA's 01]

"Dancing is so important to me. Singing was always my first love, but when I started dancing it was definitely my second love."

"When I'm on stage it's my time to express myself and to dance and loose all composure. But when I'm off the stage and I'm just me I'm.. dork. I'm such a dork!"

Råd

"If you have a dream, I say go for it. Just believe and work hard. Just remember that it takes time."

"My advice to you is to never loose your passion to dream."

"People are going to have opinions about you all day long. But the only one that matters is your own."

"You can still be a nice person and wholesome, and still go out every once in a while."

"You hafta love what you're doing. You hafta love singing, if so, go for it!"

"Remember to always enjoy the little things life gives you. Don't let anything pass you by."

"You have to be happy with who you are. I wasn't always popular in school or with boys, but I always liked who I was anyway."

"I don't think it's a good idea to get set in your ways, or worse, become a slave to the trends. Be bold, be creative, be expressive - and be proud of who you are." [Hairstyles Guide Magazine 2003]

"I think it's okay if your style keeps evolving, you should keep evolving."

"I've always been able to work through my fears and doubts, the way I see it, you can let them hold you back, or you can tell them to back off. It's all up to you."

"I just have to stay true to myself and do what's right for me."

"Honestly the only advice I can give is just be yourself and be fun and just be light and make me laugh." - [to guys who want to date her]

“I’m a Christian. I go to church. But my mom taught us, Don’t be ashamed of your body, it’s a beautiful thing.”

"I've been given so much in this world in this lifetime.I don't know what I did in the last lifetime,but I've been given so much you have to give back.It's like,'What can I do to make myself feel worthy of being in this position?'"

"I try and snap into that mode of 'You know what?' 'You just have to live your life and do what you love to do and move on and focus on positive things.'"

"The most important thing is not to be beautiful but to feel beautiful. That makes all the difference."

"I think that you should be proud of the body that God has given you. Take care of it by eating right and exercising, but be proud of it and of who you are."

"You've just gotta have that time for yourself. There are times when I have to check myself and I'm like: 'Britney! Go outside, look at the stars! Go freakin' take a walk down the park'. You have to do it for your wellbeing."

"Honesty is the best policy, but there are ways to say things. If they really look like s***, say, "You wanna go get our hair done? Let's get some new makeup." Help them out. Don't be abruptly honest. [on the honesty policy for friendships]

"When someone comes into a room and they're trying to be sexy it comes across in the wrong way. I think when you're just open about yourself and you feel comfortable, and when you're in touch with your sexual side, that's a lot sexier."

"You have to do your own thing: be self-loving, you know."

"Power is being very in tune with yourself. Go with what you feel."

"I try not to think negatively."

"Don't let people influence you. You get advice everyday from everyone - but you have to be your own guide."

Karriere

"I don't want to be a role model. I just do what I want to do and if that's an inspiration to someone, fine. I want to be an artist that everyone can relate to, that's young, happy and fun."

"The best part [of being a star] is the fans, like, loving you - and the free clothes!"

"These parents, they think I'm a role model for their kids, that their kids look at me as some sort of idol. But it's the parents' job to make sure their kids don't turn out that shallow. That's not my responsibility. I'm not responsible for your kid."

"(Parents) should not be concerned (if their children want to copy me) because they should trust their kids and believe in their kids."

"I think it's okay if your style keeps evolving, you should keep evolving."

"I try not to pay attention to what the headlines say. I just focus on my work because the media always tries to capture your personal life. Since that [wedding] happened it's made me definitely want to think about what I do a little more because they blow it way out of proportion."

"I don't think [fame] it's rough. It's intense. I have to say I chose this for my life and I feel very blessed. There are always ups and downs with anything that you do. At first, when I was young, it was very cool in a way because I was naive and oblivious to the whole thing ... but once you get older you become a little bit more aware, which is kind of a sad thing. Sometimes I try and snap into that mode of 'You know what?' 'You just have to live your life and do what you love to do and move on and focus on positive things.'"

"It's a visual thing. That's why I'm here right now, because I dreamed of these moments. Kids need that. If they don't dream, they have what?"

"This is the life I always wanted to have. Maybe I'll go to college someday, for that knowledge but I definitely think making music always will be the most important thing in my life."

"I love to sing and dance and I've always dreamt about doing something like this but i NEVER thought it'd be to this extend...ever!"

"One of the hardest things of this business is just being away from my family so much."

"I totally love everything I've ever done -- not in an egotistical way, but that was me at that moment, and that's what I believed in. So I definitely don't regret the things I did in the past."

"If I didn't sing, I'd be in high school still, probably still playing basketball, dating someone in high school, being completely normal and having fun. But I'm really happy doing what I'm doing"

"When I have a dark moment, that's when I'm the best creative stuff comes out."

"I knew that I love to sing and dance. And you know, this was always my dream to do something like this, but I never ever thought it was going to be to this extent ever, no."

"I know I am blessed. Not every girl gets to perform at the tree-lighting ceremony at Rockefeller plaza! I just try to stay grateful for all the good things that have happened to me in my life."

"I really have no regreats. I'm blessed to be doing something I love, at to be successful at it. I wouldn't have changed a thing."

"I hope, at the end of the day when they remember me, that I just put a smile on their face."

"People around me are like, 'Did you hear what they wrote?' I'm like, 'Yeah.' Honestly, the biggest thing about celebrity is that you call out for judgment. You just put yourself out there. Not everybody's going to like what you wear."

"I'm famous, but I'm not famous like freaking Brad Pitt or Jennifer Aniston. But in my weird little head, I just think we're all here to inspire each other. We're all equal. We just bounce off each other and show the world what we can do."[October 2003]

"I think every photo shoot I've done has been tasteful." [2003]

"I love photoshoots! Photo shoots are the funnest part.Looking pretty and posing for the camera - it's great.Love it!" [March 2004 PopStar! Magazine]

"If I have the strength...these people are wearing me out!" [on if she could sing in the middle of a chat]

"I'm just like any other teenager out there. I'm just doing different things right now. I think of this, what I'm doing now, as my job. I just found it at an early age."

"I feel really amazing. I'm the happy camper." [after the MTV Europe Music Awards 1999]

"There are some people that I see and I'm like, Oh my God, They're scaring me right now. There's just a look in their eye that makes me think, Get away from me!. I've seen those people, they're weird." - [on the difference between cute gruppies and stalker]

"Well, you can't worry too much [about the image you project in interviews]. You just go with it and be yourself and they say what they want to say."

"There's so much I want to do in my life. I've got my whole life ahead of me; I think if I put my mind to it, I can do anything."

"Honestly, I dodn't think there is intent [to be sex incarnate]. When I write a song, I'm not like, I'm going to have all these guys..."

"I would have gone nuts in a classroom. That wasn't for me."

"I'm sure the world doesn't want to hear my personal baggage, anyway. [answers to 'they do'] I think that's so self serving."

"It gets kind of lonely when I'm on the road."

"I don't know. Maybe because those people are pretty and appealing, and they work their asses off, and they believe in themselves. Well, some people might say it's just to make money and sell magazines. But another reason - a better reason, and the one I choose - is that they do it to inspire people." [- on why do magazine put very-sex(y) celebs on their covers]

"I'm not responsible for anybody, I'm not responsible for being a role model, only for my sister, you know? I just have to stay true to myself and do what's right for me and that way I think you get more respect. Everything will just fall into place if you do that. Hopefully."

"But because of what happened [with Justin], when I went in the studio to make my new album, I sang better. It's because you're feeling. It's all-real. It's you."

"There are always gonna be people that don't love you, and actually, I kind of like the people like Madonna, who makes such a statement that people either love her or hate her. I don't want to be in between. I think that's boring."

"Saying I was a virgin was a mistake. But then who is really interested in whether I have had sex or not? It's nobody's business. I'm no different to any other 20-year-old apart from my celebrity. "

"Well, [if my fame all went away] I guess I'd go back to working in my Granny's restaurant, cleaning crayfish. Then I'd always smell of fish! I couldn't get rid of the smell even when I went on a date!"

"Sometimes it gets a bit crazy like when I go overseas and stuff, but that's just for a couple of weeks."

"I find myself each day becoming more and more of a role model, and it's really flattering. It's the best feeling in the world when I'm on stage and I'm singing and the fans are singing the words with me." -

"I would like to be called an inspiration to people, not a role model -- because I make mistakes like everybody else. When I'm offstage, I'm just like everybody else."

"2001 was one of the best years and one fo the hardest years at the same time."

"This is the life I always wanted to have. Maybe I'll go to college someday, for that knoledge, but i definitely think making music always will be the most important thing in my life."

"In my heart, if someone tells me I can't do something, I'm gonna do it just to prove I can."

"No, but it's nice to have the money to do more things now. When I was younger, my mum and my dad made a lot of financial sacrifices so that my bro, sis and I could do all the stuff we wanted to do. And I'm so grateful to my parents. Now, because of my financial situation, I am able to help them out and spoil them whenever I want. And on top of that, I've always loved shopping, and now I can afford all the clothes I always wanted."[on if money has changed her]

"It's funny how being successful is as hard as failer. When you're successful they expect so much out of you. The expectatoin are so high."

"I try not to think negatively."

"I didn't expect BOMT [album] to be so big. Really I don't think one expects anything. I just really hoped and prayed that it did really, really well."

"My intentions when I was doing Baby [BOMT] was, honestly, seriously, not to be sexy. When I first saw it I though it was a bit chessy. Just a little bit. So when people was like "oh my goodness, that's so sexy", I say "oh that's cool".

"I think there's a way to balance the two--being who you are and saying how you feel but not going over the top with it."

"I know not everyone will like me, but this is who I am so if you don't like it, tough!"

Kjendiser

I don't sit there and judge them because i don't like being judged."

"Rosie O'Donnell asked me about what I say to famous people I meet. I had to admit that I'm a total goob and I get totally star-struck and don't know what to say."

"I listen to Otis Redding a lot...I love him, man. I think he's just awesome. There's nothing better than putting him on and getting in the tub and lighting some candles and just chilling."

"I remember I read this harsh review about my show, and one of my friends told me that this was the exact same stuff people said about Madonna and it's like, she didn't care. Madonna just came out and was herself I respect that a lot."

"I love J.Lo. I'm totally inspired by her. The whole put-together thing is usually where I'm a little off, though. I don't like it so contrived. Normally I just do the tight jeans and the little shirt, whatever. But sometimes I want to wear a sequined dress and be a freakin' girl!

"Yes, I kissed [Colin Farell]. Of course I did! He's the cutest, hottest thing in the world -- wooh! He's such a bad boy."

"Michael Jordan is definitely the greatest."

"The concepts that they talk about [in Sex & The City] are stuff that I think a lot of people don't want to touch on, don't want to talk about and they put it out there."

"We're here [MTV Carson Daly Bash] to honor him by dishonoring him. My friend Carson is the kind of man who can interview anyone, anywhere, about anything and still manage to say nothing at all!"

"[Carson Daly] is a man who goes out of his way, especially for the less fortunate, young, attractive women, who would do anything for a concert ticket or a backstage pass."

"Redzone [composers of 4th album], they're the first people I've ever worked with where it's like I'm listening to it off the radio. Where I'm, like, yeah! I'm jamming.with myself. And it's weird. I've never done that before."

"That was my fault for hanging out with people like that. Fred was a great guy. He was a nice guy. And at the time he was trying to come on to me, I wasn't in the right frame of mind to have a relationship with anybody. So maybe I did hurt his ego, and [going on the radio] was his way of dealing with that. I was kind of confused, because my tour had just ended. Me and my girlfriends went out one night, and I was feeling like a free bird. But I really don't want to talk about this."

"I always liked watching Bugs Bunny, he just put me in a good mood and I like him."

"She opened the door for every woman out there to have balls and believe in herself."

"Usually, if you're going to meet a celebrity, you don't want to because you don't want to be disappointed, but I was like genuinely inspired when I was with her [Madonna]. I respect the fact that she's been able to reinvent herself all the time, you know?"

"I just love the fact that she [Madonna] has been able to do it all."

Familie og venner

"I love my mom more than anything. It's great to have such a supportive mom. She's my best friend."

"When I was younger, my mum and my dad made a lot of financial sacrifices so that my brother, my sister and I could do all the stuff we wanted to do. And I'm so grateful to my parents. Now, because of my financial situation, I am able to help them out and spoil them whenever I want."

"My friends don't treat me any different. It's really important to have friends like that."

"[Brian] will be like, "Have you gained weight?" or "You look so tired right now." He's so honest - it makes me want to cry sometimes. But I apprecaite it."

"I have to tell you that is one of my pet peeves. If someone calls me and asks about some stupid article and they think it might be somewhat true, it shows me how shallow someone can be. My friends don't do that."

"I think my Mom raised me really well." - [on how she could handle fame at such a young age]

"Hell, no. No, if someone hurt my little sister, I would kill them instantly, no doubt about it. So yeah I guess I do [have it within myself to kill someone]."

"I like meeting all my fans and signing autographs, although it can get a bit crazy. Yesterday, for example, a boy just came over and planted a big kiss on my face! I was like, 'hello?"

Oppvekst

"I guess I do those things because of the way I feel inside. And I also know that I'm a young lady and I have to learn and a lot to experience."

"I know I get a lot of flack for what I wear, what I say, what I don't say, but I'm not a little girl anymore"

"I think it makes life so much fun to change up things."

"I don’t want to be the kind of person that people want me to be; I want to be the kind of person that I want to be"

"That was the best childhood experience you could possibly have in your whole life. I mean, you live in Disney World!"

"I started homeschooling after the eighth grade, and I didn't experience a real high-school thing. I think, when I went through a little party phase last year, it was because I didn't get a chance in high school to party-to go out and be stupid."

"I still have a lot to learn -- about the business, about music, and about myself. It's exciting."

"At first, when I was young, [fame] it was very cool in a way because I was naive and oblivious to the whole thing ... but once you get older you become a little bit more aware, which is kind of a sad thing. Sometimes I try and snap into that mode of 'You know what?' 'You just have to live your life and do what you love to do and move on and focus on positive things.'" [2004]

"I think it's whatever your definition of what a woman is. [You] probably know yourself a little better and it's a time where you feel very comfortable in your skin, you're ready to have kids and -- I think I have a little bit more growing up to do before I get there." [2003, on how she's grown since "nagnyaw"]

"People are always wanting to know every detail about where I go, and I always have to have my bodyguards with me. It's like they're insinuating that I can't do things on my own---I can! I know they mean well, but I don't like people treating me like a little gurl."

"Oh sure, I changed as a person. After all when Baby came out in the States I was still only 16. Even though it's only a few years ago, I feel really different now and I have totally changed the way I think about stuff too. I've had to. Like, in the beginning when I was just starting out, I was really sensitive and would take criticism personally. Now I've learned either to ignore it or laught at it! You have to have that attitude in this business, otherwise you would never survive!"

Gutter

"I'm the type of person who can't go from a serious relationship and then be like, "Oh, I'm just going to date some guy.'" [2002]

"If I can't have a serious relationship, I don't want one at all." [1999]

"When you meet the right person you just know. You know." [2001]

"Boys will be boys." [late 2002]

"There's a lot of cute guys here. Who knows, maybe if you're really lucky I might marry you." [San Diego, Tour kickoff, 2/3/04]

"I went to a psychoanalyst. He explained things about my love life that I found very impressive.. almost scary. He said I had a problem with closeness and intimacy, that I was afraid of letting myself fall for someone and of being hurt." [2002]

"I know it sounds cliche and cheesy, but I really believe that if it's meant to be, it's meant to be." [2003]

"Can't live with them, can't live without them." [2001]

"Do you realize we landed on Mars that same day? Why isn't the world talking about that?" (on her marriage)

"I've always been a tomboy, I've always ended up being the man n the relationship. I know it sounds really weired, but it's hard for meto let go and let the man take control, put it that way. That can be unattractive sometimes; I need to work on that.

"Yes I kissed [Colin Farell]. Of course I did! He's the cutest, hottest thing in the world -- wooh! He's such a bad boy." [2003]

"I'd rather be by myself forever than be with somebody because I'm lonely." [2002]

"I read in some magazine that I said [adopting a hokey down home accent] 'I'm just a girl who wants somebody to love me'. I never said that, that's so cheesy."

"You know, I mean, I, you don't go around sleeping around with people. I mean, I really thought that I was going to be with him for the rest of my life."

"I think it's stupid when you see guys with big necklaces, I think that's the biggest turn off in the world. Who do they think they? I think that shows a lack of something. Sorry!"

"Uh-hun, not the body though. I don't want no hair on your back or on your chest. I do like it on the face, though. I think that's really sexy." - [on liking men with facial hair]

"It's very healthy to not be in that relationship now. There are some people, especially where I'm from, and they marry really early. I'll call up a friend and say, "Hey! What's going on? You're pregnant? What? Already?"

"I would need to hang a round British men more to have that answer [of a disernable difference between British n American guys] because I really don't know. I do like your sense of humour though. It's fun to be around anyone that makes you laugh. It makes the whole environment a little bit lighter so I think it's really cool that you guys do that."

"As far as the whole sex thing goes, I really did think that Justin [Timberlake] was going to be the one I was going to marry so I did the thing with him after three years. And I don't think that's a bad thing. You can still be a nice person and wholesome and still go out every once in a while. Just because I've admitted to having sex doesn't make me a bad person, does it? I think they [the press] thought even before I had sex, that I was going to do it one day anyway, so I don't really think it makes any difference at all."

"I don't think anyone can give you advice when you've got a broken heart."

"Honestly, I dodn't think there is intent [to be sex incarnate]. When I write a song, I'm not like, I'm going to have all these guys..."

"Australian and Spainish men are the most alluring and less fuddy duddy." [2003]

"I think when women really want a boyfriend, it shows and it looks so stupid. They act so forward. It's like, Just freaking be yourself! The only time you have a really perfect relationship is when you're completely comfortable with youself and you're happy with being alone."

"A guy doesn't want a girl to get on his nerves and be all over him."

"I don't like it when people take themselves too seriously... a guy has to be very comfortable in his skin and just be funny. I find that very attractive" [2003]

"I thought [Justin Timberlake] was the one. [...] But I was wrong! I didn't think he was gonna go on Barbara Walters and sell me out."

"Going to a movie with the guy you really like and then coming back and watching more movies and havinf ice cream and sitting there and then having a kiss and then he leaves. I want that so bad right now." [the perfect friday night - oct.2003]

"When I'm in relationships, I love spending time with my boyfriend. But I can't spend all my time with that person. A lot of my girlfriends see their boyfriends every day. I'm like "How do you know that?" Is there something wrong with me? I need my space and time to myself. I'm weird I guess."

"Every relationship I've been in has lasted four or five years. I was that girl, you know? A one-guy girl. Now it's cool just to be able to date for fun." [2003]

"I think if some guy thinks you're cute he might be intimidated and not come up. But I know when I meet people if I like them, and I hit it off with them then I'll start flirting.... Actually I'm a really bad flirt!"

"I get shy, it's weird because I think people think because of what I do I'm like "Da-Na" but at heart I'm very shy. When I'm in front of the camera I know what to do, but I get in a room stuck with four guys, and I'm like the shyest girl in there."

"Freakin Horrible! You know what I mean?" [on Justin explotating their relationship]

"I'll always have feelings for Justin. OK not feelings for him, but he'll always have a special place in my heart. He was my first love after all."

"It's more exciting when you don't have a boyfriend."

"I think girls shouldn't call guys. I think guys should call girls." [2003]

"Tacky can be fun, though, sometimes."

"Mastery Of Love: A Practical Guide To The Art Of Relationship by Don Miguel Ruiz, I like that a lot. It's an inspirational self-help book. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is also an amazing book, I'm in the middle of that right now." - [on her favourite books - oct.2003]

"I can be in the dumps of dumpsters and go buy a pair of new shoes, and then it's OK. Even if it's just for the time being, for that moment it's what I need."

"I think if you do something in moderation, it's OK. The only thing I'm addicted to is taking baths at night."

"Yeah, I like that, why not? Shit, I really like being compared to Madonna. I don't have a big ego, everybody knows that. But when you're compared to somebody you've always looked up to, it's natural for you to be totally flattered."

"I want to give up smoking, I really do. But when I'm recording, I go into the studio and everyone's smoking. It's like a zone you go in. But I'm hoping that when I go on tour I won't smoke anymore. With all the dancing I won't be able to."

"Sometimes I just long to do normal things, like going to the movies or a club. But now that I'm famous its a major ordeal just to go out."

Om seg selv

"I'm somebody who's really focused. This isn't all fun and play."
