Ok! Magazine InterviewSeptember 29, 2004
Are you pregnant now?
Britney: No, not that I know of. I have a couple of things I want to take care of this year before I have my baby. I would love to have a kid right now but there are a couple of things I need to take care of this year before I do that.
What do you want to do?
Britney: You’ll see. If you wouldn’t mind making a note to read the column on my website this week because I wrote a letter to all my fans that I think they need to read. We are going to put it on the website. It’s called ‘The Letter Of Truth: I Hope You Can Handle It’. It is the most amazing letter I have ever written. It was a life changing letter for me and I just want my fans to read it.
When did you write the letter?
Kevin: Everyday for the last week and a half
Britney: I feel like I am at Harvard!
Will the website continue?
Britney: Yes, and instead of my mom doing it weekly, I will do it weekly. It really states where I am at in my life right now. It is making closure with a lot of things and I think this is my ultimate truth. I owe it to my fans, they need to read it. It will explain any questions they have ever had, it will explain everything. I was hesitant at first. I saw a play in NY called ‘Wicked’ – it really inspired me to write it. It was the most amazing
play. It was life changing for me.
How is this life stage different?
Britney:I feel like it’s a beginning. I feel like we are all here to find our ultimate truth. And as humans, that is all we should want to do and try to get closer to that every day. I think that fear and not believing in yourself as a kid is the worst thing you can do. That is why spending so much time with his little girl [Kori] has made me look at life differently and look at motherhood a lot and the way I want to raise my kids. I
Are you going to give up performing?
Britney:I could never do that because I love what I do so much. I would like to be based in one place and get the business side of things in order before I have a kid. Things will be on my terms with everything. I have been touring since I was 16 – it is so hard to keep going and going. It is great that this has happened because it has made me realise that things need to change. It made me realise that I am growing up, becoming a woman and things just need to be different. Bottom line – I want to be a young mom. I know what I want. I love kids so much. I feel sorry for men sometimes
because we get to experience something growing inside of us. Then it comes out. We give life. What a miracle! The most beautiful thing in life is to create. I can see us as parents. I can see myself as a mom. Next year at 23, I am so there.
