Britney Spears On Justin, Her Breakdown, & Being Famous

The first 30 minutes from Britney Spears' new documentary, Britney: For the Record, were screened for media Thursday.

In the movie - which premieres Nov. 30 on MTV - Spears reveals her feelings on splitting from Justin Timberlake, her 2007 breakdown that landed her in a psychiatric unit and her current state of mind.

The documentary starts the day after her appearance on this year's VMAs, and follows her for three months. Below, excerpts from

"With Justin, he was part of the magnitude of what I had become. So when he was gone I was like, What am I supposed to do with myself? I was devastated [by the breakup] but I handled it a lot better than the [split] with Kevin.He started to do an album for himself and he started to do things for himself, and I just never saw him anymore.When it ended I felt so alone. I didn't really wanna think about the reality of it. I never faced it.I just ran."

"My trust has really been battered.Sometimes it can get kinda lonely.I had totally lost my way. I lost focus. I lost myself. I let certain people into my life that were just bad peoplebecause I was lonely.I really paid the consequences for that. Big time.What the hell was I thinking?"

"At first, it's amazing, the first year or two, because it's like, I'm a celebrity!.It didn't really touch me until I had been working for six years.I wanted to just stop. I wanted to create a new life."

"Do I know my life is weird? It's all I've ever known. I don't see it as being weird.I'm kind of stuck in this place and I'm like, How do you deal? I just cope with it every day.It's better not to feel anything at all and have hope than to feel the other way.It's bad. I'm sad. It's like [the movie] Groundhog Day every day. It's really boring.Normal is really different for everybody.In my situation, I try to make it as normal as possible for me.It could be a lot worse. There are people out there who have it a lot worse than I do.I used to be a cool chick but I feel like the paparazzi has taken that away from me, like, the way I used to live my life. I used to be a cool chick but I'm not anymore."

Kudos to Britney for pulling it together, but IMO, she still has to deliver a great performance to cement that return. There are rumors that she make an surprise appearance/performance at the AMAs Sunday, but nothing is confirmed.
