Spears, Britney : Overprotected

Britney's decided that her childhood was crap after all...

Maybe life's not quite so sweet as you'd think inside the golden dome of mega-wealth and mega-celebrity. In August 2000, Britney Spears and her 'mom' Lynne Spears released their epic slushfest 'coping with teens' handbook 'Heart To Heart'. Within two years, Britney's decided that her childhood was crap after all. "I can't help the way I feel because my life has been so overprotected" she snarls on this unusually vindictive day-glo disco stomp. Strange as it seems, while appearing on 'The Mickey Mouse Club' and becoming the most famous teenager in the world, all Britney really wanted to do was "make mistakes to learn who I am". That's right kids. Britney says it's OK to lose your virginity at 11 and spend your teens snorting scouring powder. Well, more or less, anyway. Pass it on.
