Britney Spears: Breakup Inspired My New Album


Britney Spears is opening up about the inspiration behind her new album, set to be released in December.

The pop star told Ryan Seacrest Friday morning that it was her breakup with fiancé Jason Trawick in January that motivated her in the studio.

"It's the most personal album I've done," she said. "After having a huge breakup this year, I had a lot to say in the studio, so it was really nice to have a therapy like that and to be able to share that with my fans … so it's a real personal album."

This isn't the first major breakup for Spears. Her first marriage to hometown friend Jason Alexander was annulled 55 hours after the wedding, and she divorced second husband Kevin Federline in 2006 after two years of marriage. Spears and Federline have two sons together.
