Own Britney: For The Record on DVD
The DVD comes with special features that have never been seen before including six bonus MP3 remixes of 'Circus' and 'Womanizer.' Great for any Britney Spears fan!
I watched Britney: For The Record when it aired on MTV for the first time. I enjoyed the documentary because it was the first time in years that Britney Spears did an interview and talked about her life. I was excited to get to see behind the scenes footage and listen to Britney talk about things that everyone had been talking about but her.
The plus side of the documentary is that we get to see that Britney understands that she has made mistakes and is trying to make her life better. The downside is, there was a lot left unanswered. I personally think that is fine since most of her life is in the public anyways. She, like everybody else, needs her personal space. But to some people, it is not enough. I think she answered vaguely because of 2 reasons.
1. She does not know the answers completely herself. She is still confused and trying to find her normalcy again.
2. She does not want people knowing every small detail that happens in her life. People can know she is okay and things are fine without having to know everything.
Britney laughs, cries, and admits to things she has never admitted to before. You get to see what kinds of things she deals with from day to day, and what mindset she is in.
Madonna also makes an appearance.
If you like Britney Spears, don't like Britney Spears, or just want to know what is going on in her life lately without all of the tabloid mess - Britney: For The Record is a good choice.

This is the first video I ever had of Britney Spears. It is a good starting point for any fan to learn about Briney and how she started out.
If you are curious about Britney's time with Kevin Federline then check out this DVD.
This is a book and DVD combo (Make sure if you get it that it comes with the DVD). The DVD is a documentary about her concert in Mexico and the life of Britney. The book and DVD are very well done in my opinion. It makes you respect understand her as a performer and person and learn the pressures she has had to deal with at such a young age.
This book is written by Britney's mom. It isn't a tell-all about Britney but rather a book about her moms life. She does go into some detail about Britney's time in 2007 so if you are looking for more insight then check out this book.
This was written by Briney and her mom and is like a biography of Britney with nice pictures and information.
Check out the album "Circus" that Britney Spears was working on during the documentary!
