Superstar singer Britney Spears has had a glittering career spanning twenty years, that has resulted in some incredible tunes. '...Baby One More Time', 'Oops I Did It Again', 'Toxic', there are so many hits that the list would be super long! However, Brit has had a long documented struggle with the downside of fame.

The 'Piece Of Me' singer has posted an honest message on her Instagram about how she can feel lonely and how the haters in her comments can make her feel.

Posting a picture with the words, 'Pay close attention to the people who clap when you don't win', Brit wrote a caption alongside it that read, 'Living in LA is such a trip !!! It can be lonely at times. You never know who to trust, and some people can be fake. I have a very small circle of friends, and simply do what makes me happy !!! It breaks my heart to see the comments on my posts sometimes .... so I simply choose not to look anymore ... let the clever haters do what they do best .... hate!!!'

You tell 'em Brit!

As well as a fantastic music career, Britney has also appeared in a number of tv shows.

The Simpsons (2000)

You're not really famous unless you've made an appearance in The Simpsons - and Britney got her role in 2000. Voicing a yellow version of herself, her character was in Springfield to present an awards ceremony with Kent Brockman, and accidentally killed the town's oldest resident after kissing him on the cheek. She then gives the award to the second-oldest - Mr Burns - who begs her not to give him the "kiss of death".

Brit played Lucy Wagner alongside Zoe Saldana and Kim Catrall in the coming-of-age movie, and also contributed single 'I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman' to the soundtrack.
