“Do we dare forget the Diane Sawyer interview in my apartment almost 20 years ago?” Britney wrote in the middle of her lengthy message. “What was with the ‘You’re in the wrong’ approach?? Geeze… and making me cry??? Seriously though… I lived in my apartment for a year and never spoke to anyone… my manager put that woman in my home and made me talk to her on national television and she asked if I had a shopping problem!!! when did I have a shopping problem?”

Britney then recalled that the interview was set up in what felt like moments after her split from Justin Timberlake.

“Something I never shared when I had that break up years ago was that I couldn’t talk afterward,” she shared, adding, “I was in shock… pretty lame of my dad and three men to show up at my door when I could hardly speak… two days later they put Diane Sawyer in my living room… they forced me to talk!”

She also wrote that now, she has the ability to stand up for herself.

“She said ‘a woman or a girl’ … I would like to say now, ‘Ma’am I’m a catholic slut!!!”

She also recalled being asked about her “shopping problem”.

“She can kiss my white ass,” Britney wrote.

Earlier this year, Diane was in hot water with not only Britney‘s fans for the interview, but also a lot of celebs.

As was Justin.
