Britney Spears Is Looking Forward To A 'Clean Slate' Amid Memoir Release

A few days before her memoir was released, the "Crossroads" actress took to social media to remind her followers that she was never trying to "offend" anyone by writing about her life and insisted that she has "moved on."

“My book’s purpose was not to offend anyone by any means !!! That was me then …that is in the past !!!” she began. “I don’t like the headlines I am reading …that’s exactly why I quit the business 4 years ago !!! Most of the book is from 20 years ago … I have moved on and it’s a beautiful clean slate from here !!!”

“Hopefully I can enlighten people who feel particularly alone in most cases or hurt or misunderstood !!! Again, my motive for this book was not to harp on my past experiences which is what the press is doing and it’s dumb and silly !!!” she concluded. “I have moved on since then !! #TheWomaninMe.”

However, that has not stopped fans from calling out her ex-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake. Although the two dated from 1999 to 2002, Britney reflected on allegations of infidelity and even an unplanned pregnancy in her memoir, prompting fans to flood his Instagram page with negative comments. The backlash got so bad that the "Cry Me A River" singer shut down comments on his Instagram page and took off to vacation in Cabo for the time being.
