Pop star Britney Spears has hit out at the media after taking a break from her recent party-fest saying the press criticised her every move and printed a skewed perception of her.
She posted a message on her website defending her actions in the last few months, admitting that "the last couple of years have been quite a ride for me". During this period, she has had two children and seen the rise and fall of her marriage to Kevin Federline, said Contactmusic.com.
Said Britney: "Media has criticised my every move and printed a skewed perception of who I really am as a human being. Behind every decision I have made in my public life, there always seems to be an apparent contradiction. I have come to terms with that, which is why I usually don't pay much attention to it.
"If I were you, I'd be unhappy too if I had to read what I've been reading every day. But trust me, I get it. I know I've been far from perfect and the media has had a lot of fun exaggerating my every move."
She also revealed plans of releasing a new album later this year and said she wants to "reach out" to her fans "on a more personal level".
