Britney Spears has taken a vow of silence - she's now refusing to talk about her personal life to the press.

Spears is the April (05) cover girl for ALLURE magazine, and since reading the article she's decided to follow in Jennifer Lopez's footsteps by shielding the things she once openly shared with journalists.

In a posting on her website, she says, "I feel the article focused too much on my personal life and various events from my past. I've already dealt with these issues with the support of my family and friends and have fully moved on.

"In the future, I will refrain from discussing my private life in interviews. It will be expressed solely through art."

In the past, Spears has posed bottomless for ESQUIRE and topless for ROLLING STONE, shared photographs from her second wedding with PEOPLE magazine and spoke about the state of her marriage for husband Kevin Federline's cover story in DETAILS.

Her most recent Allure interview touched on her breakup with pop junk Justin Timberlake, her very brief marriage to Jason Alexander, and the rocky start of her second marriage to dancer Federline
