“I’m not a girl, but if you look at me closely, you will see it in my eyes. This girl will always find her way.”

The bridge of Spears’ 2001 coming-of-age anthem “I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman” serves as a necessary reminder for herself and her fans as she fights for her rights within her conservatorship.

“Drive safe, don’t smoke weed, and rock out with your c*cks out! Peace m*therf*ckers!”

Yes, this is something that Spears actually told fans at the end of her 2009 Circus Tour concert in Vancouver, which was briefly paused earlier in the show due to intense marijuana smoke within the venue. If this isn’t motivation, I don’t know what is.

“I go through life like a karate kid.”

In her 2008 MTV documentary For the Record, the Princess of Pop explained how she protected herself from situations that may threaten her in the most simple and carefree way.

“There’s only two types of people in the world: The ones that entertain, and the ones that observe.”

The opening line of her iconic 2008 single “Circus” shows that Spears has been a leader since the very beginning.

I’m Mrs. Oh my God that Britney’s shameless! You want a piece of me?

For those who are unaware, Spears didn’t just tweet these separate statements out of nowhere. In a 2011 Twitter Q&A, a fan jokingly asked “What is Britney's opinion on global warming?” before genuinely inquiring about Lady Gaga. The singer, being the generous angel that she is, graciously answered both questions, resulting in the bizarre yet endearing tweet that belongs in the Twitter Hall of Fame.

It’s Britney, bitch.
