Britney Spears hated her turbulent 20s and is much happier now, in her 30s, after overcoming drug addiction, manic depression and alcohol abuse.
Spears, who suffered a series of public emotional breakdowns in her twenties, was forcibly hospitalized and placed on suicide watch in 2008, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
After seeking treatment through therapy, exercise, and medication, Britney is now healthier and happier than ever.
“I like my 30s way more than my 20s,” Spears told ITV. “My 20s were horrible.
“[Being] in my teens was fun, but I like the 30s. The thirties are great. You know who you really are.”
Britney weathered two divorces during her twenties: one from childhood pal Jason Alexander, and another from her former backup dance, Kevin Federline, who’s the father of her two sons.
Spears is not dating anyone at the moment, and is happy being single for now.
“It’s OK to be single, yeah, it totally is,” said Britney. “I’m in a really good place right now, so I’m just learning who I am. It’s an awakening. It’s cool.”
At 35, Britney is also fitter than ever, thanks to a low-carb diet, yoga workouts and cardio exercise, as TheImproper has reported.
Spears is busy performing every day at her Las Vegas residency, which extends until December 2017.
Britney is also a hands-on mom to her two boys: Sean Preston and Jayden James.
“I know 12, 13, 14 and 15 is going to be really scary, but right now it’s a great age,” said Spears. “They’re still babies!”
Britney Spears recently dropped her ninth studio album, Glory.
