Britney Spears sends pointed addendum to 22-minute voice memo: ‘It’s not about pleasing others’

Britney Spears had a few more things to say after dropping — and then deleting — an emotional one 22-minute voice memo where she depicted the hardships during her 13-year conservatory. “You can lose your individuality on a false narrative of how other people may perceive you and some idiots like me fall into the trap because I sadly don’t care,” she wrote on Sunday night (August 28).

“But at the end of the day… I have to honor myself and realize that it’s not about pleasing others or driving yourself crazy with what other people think,” she added hours after sharing the voice memo.

“Honoring myself … and valuing myself is the only path to something we all seek … Self-love … the value of the self and pass it on to every person I come across!!!” She also took the time to correct one of the comments she made in the note about the amount of blood tests she had to endure each week during conservatory. “A reminder to some of you who may have gotten what I said confused…it was 6 small vials of blood not 6 gallons!!!” she wrote.

Spears said she was “honored” and felt loved by the awareness and recognition of her just-released hit collaboration with Sir Elton John on “Hold me closer,” as well as for her “struggles and what I’ve been through!!! He [John] knows the hardships of the world on a larger scale.”

The singer also hit out at what she said has always been a “boring tactic” in music, complacency, assuring her fans that “music… creating… producing is where my heart lies and lifts me up with inspiration!!! I have had the opportunity to work with someone who is beautiful and kind on every level.”

Plus, Britney being Britney, she posted a short video of her in a yellow dress dancing to Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” and “being off — a ray of sunshine… life is short… so smile like there ain’t no morning!!!”
