Asked if she had any New Year’s resolutions by TV’s Extra at her New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas, Spears, 25, replied: “Stop biting my nails. Just to take care of me more.”
Those words proved prescient: Later that night, she fell asleep at the club – a result of exhaustion, not alcohol, her manager said.
Even before Dec. 31, Spears had self-improvement on her mind: Earlier that month, she posted a message on her Web site defending her post-split partying – which resulted in several revealing photos – but admitted, “I probably did take my new found freedom a bit too far.”
She signed off: “Anyway, thank God for Victoria Secrets’ new underwear line! I look forward to a new year, new music and a new me.”
