Pop princess Britney Spears has grown up so much since her last album that unlike former partner Justin Timberlake, she won't write any songs about their breakup.

The BOYS hitmaker believes her thoughts on the subject should remain private, in contrast to the former 'N SYNC star, who supposedly wrote CRY ME A RIVER about his former flame.

Of her as-yet untitled new album, she says, "I didn't put as many personal things as you might hope! I wrote about subjects that let me open up my personal feelings, but I didn't write a song about Justin or anyone else. That would've seemed too weird to me.

"I'm learning there are things that should remain private and in my heart. I guess I'm growing up. But don't tell too many people, okay!"
