Britney Spears Finally Addresses That 2003 Diane Sawyer Interview and What She’d Say Now

During the interview, Sawyer mentioned her shopping, asking Britney, “Is it an addiction?”

“No, I don’t think it’s an addiction,” the pop star replied with surprise. “It makes me happy. No, it’s not an addiction!”

Years have passed and it seems Britney still hasn’t forgotten this interrogation. “Do we dare forget the Diane Sawyer interview in my apartment almost 20 years ago???” she said. “What was with the ‘you’re in the wrong’ approach? Geeze… and making me cry??? Seriously though.”

The star continued, “She asked me if I had a shopping problem!!! When did I have a problem with shopping??? When I never left my apartment???”

In addition, Britney claimed that she “never spoke to anyone” following her split from Justin Timberlake, but her manager “made” her talk to Diane about it on live television. 

While Britney didn’t name which manager she was referring to, Larry Rudolph served as her manager starting in the ’90s. After 25 years together, he resigned earlier this year because, as he said in a statement, he believed that it was “in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.” E!
