Britney was featured in an issue of More! Magazine in June 2009 that claimed to have exclusive details about her life.
Britney: “I’m just not that into going out late at night or going to clubs anymore. It’s the last thing I want to do with my life. I’m not interested in being with people who are looking to exploit me. I’m staying close to my family and friends and living very peacefully. I need my energy from my children and music. I want to show people that I’m a strong woman. I have a lot of great things ahead of me that I want to accomplish.
I’m taking my time these days and not letting myself feel any pressure other than to just feel happy.
There are so many things that I am grateful for. I just want to make the most of this time in my life and build from there. It’s a good feeling.
Turns out the interview was a fake!
Now, More! magazine is retracting their exclusive and apologizing to Britney and her fans on behalf of their foolishness in their newest issue, saying:
“More! would like to apologize to our readers and to Britney Spears for having wrongly described the Q&A with Ms Spears we published in our June 8, 2009 issue as an exclusive. The article was brought to More! by a freelance contributor, Jan Janssen.
We now understand that Ms. Spears quotes where given to the press generally and not exclusively to Jan Janssen. The article was not a more! exclusive as we had been led to believe. Nor was it authorized by Ms. Spears. We apologize to Ms. Spears for any distress and damage caused.”
More! has agreed to pay “damages” and Britney’s legal fees.
