7 Britney Spears Quotes About Life That Will Blow You Away With Their Wisdom
Dec. 2 is a very special day. Why you ask? Well, because it's the one and only Britney Spears' birthday! On Tuesday, the Queen of Pop is celebrating turning 33, and I have a feeling all of her fans worldwide are doing just the same. Ever since she hit the music scene with "Baby One More Time", Spears has made a name for herself, and continues to do just that. Despite her break-up with Justin Timberlake and some of the more troubling times of her life, she hasn't disappointed her fans. From releasing new music to headlining a Las Vegas show at Planet Hollywood to her belief in romance, like with her new man Charlie Ebersol, Spears fights on and remains a success.
This might come as a surprise to some, but Spears is even known for handing out some great advice from time to time. Don't knock the singer, just because you might not agree with everything she stands for or because you despise her music. Spears is a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to admit her mistakes. If anyone knows about the struggles of life, it's Spears. She hasn't had an easy one, especially with constantly being in the spotlight because, not just because of her music, but because of her personal life.
In honor of her birthday, I think we should reflect on the positive quotes about life she's dished out over the years. Seriously, she's one uplifting and motivating lady. Check it out.
"I think it's important to look good and feel good about yourself, but I go both ways on it. I think it's cruel how the world puts so much emphasis on our looks ... In this business you make a deal with the devil. I've learned you kind of have to go with it. What I do calls for me to look good. People expect that. I kind of take it as my job."
We all know Spears is no stranger to criticism, especially when it comes to her looks and stage costumes, which she discussed with In Style magazine in 2013 when she admitted to getting lip injections. However, she owns it and is never ashamed to express herself during a performance.
"It's exhilarating to express yourself and get the things out there you want to say. Yeah, I think it is empowering."
Per Spears, don't ever hold back on your thoughts or feelings, just like she told MTV News Correspondent Suchin Pak in 2003.
"For me, success is a state of mind. Success isn't about conquering something, it's being happy with who you are."
As we all know, you're never truly happy and successful, until you're happy with yourself. Yeah, Spears hit the nail on the head here during an interview with Stylist.
"I would like to be called an inspiration to people, not a role model, because I make mistakes like everybody else. When I'm offstage, I'm just like everybody else."
As it reads on the official RCA Records site, this quote goes to show anyone and everyone that Spears is a "real" person who isn't perfect. Who is?
"Sometimes it’s hard to be motivated. But once you get up and do it you feel like you’ve conquered the world."
We all know it can be hard to get motivated, whether it's going after your dreams or just working up enough energy to exercise. Maybe if we all listen to Spears, we'll keep on pushing till the world ends.
"I’ve always followed my heart and pursued my dreams, and I imagine that people find that inspiring. I hope that is the effect I have on my fans and people in general. I definitely want to project a positive energy out into the world."
And you certainly do, Spears, and that's clear in this 2013 interview with The Telegraph where she chatted about her recent career and performing in Las Vegas.
"Never, ever lose your passion to dream."
Spears bravely opened up about to a crowd during one of her performances about her hardships and the sometimes harsh media. Despite it all, she continues to go after what she loves and believes in. You go, girl!
Happy Birthday, Britney!
