The singer took to Twitter to release a statement about her new book, which is due to be released later this week (October 24). Excerpts from The Woman In Me have gained notoriety for their details about Spears’ abortion with Justin Timberlake and her infamous head-shaving incident in 2007.

“My book’s purpose was not to offend anyone by any means!” Spears began in her Twitter statement.

“That was me then … that is in the past! I don’t like the headlines I am reading … that’s exactly why I quit the business four years ago! Most of the book is from 20 years ago … I have moved on and it’s a beautiful clean slate from here! I am here to establish it that way for the rest of my entire life! Either way, that is the last of it and shit happens!”
