Britney Spears Insists She Never Planned To Retire From Showbiz

Britney Spears has decided to clarify a few things about her self-imposed break from her hectic work schedule. In a letter posted on her website. Monday (January 3), Spears writes: "I think I should rephrase myself from my previous letters when I was talking about taking a 'break.' What I meant was I am taking a break from being told what to do." Spears went on to say that the work she's been doing lately is so much fun it doesn't seem like work at all and that she loves having more control over her life.

In November, Spears posted a letter on her website which said, quote, "I don't think I'll do a tour for another couple of years." She added that her new priorities were herself, her husband Kevin, and starting a family. Her "retirement" came into question after she announced on a Los Angeles radio station that she was working on a new album.

Spears said she recently co-directed and choreographed a new music video for the song "Do Something." She also styled the shoot using Juicy Couture clothing and proudly noted that the entire video was shot in only five hours. The song is from her current album, Greatest Hits: My Prerogative. Spears did not say when it would premiere.

Being behind the camera was such a thrill for Spears that she's started writing a musical play about show business--appropriately titled Hollywood.

Spears closed her letter by mentioning she has a new dog named "Lucky" that shares a room in her home with her doggie pal "Bit Bit."
