The conservatorship still stands as Britney Spears prepares for the release of her new album, Femme Fatale, later this month (Mar11).

But she insists anyone who wants to discuss her private life in upcoming interviews will be shut down fast - because she refuses to get personal.

She tells V Magazine, "There's nothing to say. I'll let the music speak for me. I'm past all of that (tabloid gossip). I try to block it all out and not pay attention to anything they write about me in the magazines or online. I'm done with that.

"I have learned to always stay true to myself and never let what other people say about me change who I am. It's a really important lesson that took me a long time to learn."

And Britney Spears admits she would have no problem giving up her public persona if she feels herself struggling under the pressure of the spotlight.

She says, "I'd be a full-time mum, which would be cool. I'd miss my fans and all of the love the most, but I definitely would not miss having my picture taken everywhere I go.

"I think it's easier to let people in when you're younger, but when I became a mother I wanted more privacy for myself and my children."
