Britney On Her Breakdown: 'I'm Not Gonna Sugarcoat It'

Britney Spears doesn't like to think of her upcoming album as a "comeback." But how else would you describe the roller coaster year that saw Brit go from chrome-domed party girl to three-time VMA winner?

"[It was] a really bad time in my life," Spears says of her breakdown in her new MTV documentary, Britney: For The Record. "I'm not gonna sugarcoat it and say I was OK," she admits. "Maybe I had traumatic stress. I just remember I did not want to be at home. When I was in my car, I was driving and I was going somewhere."

Meanwhile, Brit also opens up about her painful breakups (from Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline), the dark side of fame ("It's just like Groundhog Day every day") and what keeps her going through it all ("I see my babies and say ... you have to believe in God.")

+ If you missed Britney: For The Record last night, catch it again tonight at 9pm and watch the entire show on MTV.com starting Wednesday, December 3rd at 8pm ET.
