Don’t hold it against her.

Britney Spears clarified via social media Friday that the purpose of her bombshell memoir, “The Woman in Me,” was “not to offend anyone by any means !!!”

“That was me then … that is in the past!” the “Oops! I Did It Again” singer, 41, wrote in a lengthy statement on Twitter.

Spears said that she “doesn’t like” the media coverage surrounding her new book because she has “moved on” from her past and wants a “clean slate.”

“I am here to establish it that way for the rest of my entire life !!!” she added. “Either way that is the last of it and s–t happens !!!”

Spears then acknowledged that “some” people may be “offended” by what’s written in her book but that the memoir has given her “closure on all things for a better future.”

“Hopefully I can enlighten people who feel particularly alone in most cases or hurt on misunderstood !!!” the “… Baby One More Time” singer added.

“Again, my motive for this book was not to harp on my past experiences which is what the press is doing and it’s dumb and silly !!! I have moved on since then !!!”

Some of Spears’ past experiences that have leaked ahead of the release of her memoir on Oct. 24 are the explosive revelations that she and Timberlake chose to get an abortion and that he allegedly cheated on her with at least two women.

While Timberlake has not yet issued an official response to the claims made in his famous ex’s new book, a source recently told Page Six that the former *NSYNC member was worried about what may be said.

“He’s very curious what she’ll reveal from their relationship,” an insider told us earlier this week. “It’s eating at him.”

Aside from her past with Timberlake, Britney also recalls drinking cocktails with her mom, Lynne Spears, when she was in eighth grade, her dad, Jamie Spears, calling her fat and him forcing her to sit down with Diane Sawyer for an interview, in which she felt “exploited.”

None of the parties mentioned have spoken out on the book, but the revelations have been well-received by Britney’s fans, who have already made the tell-all reach No. 1 on Amazon.

Her supporters also reassured the Princess of Pop via Twitter Friday that they are not criticizing her for speaking about her past experiences.

“You are not responsible for how other people view your book so please don’t apologize,” one person tweeted. “Keep doing you. Know you’re loved. And if ppl get offended that’s their problem.”

Another added, “YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL YOUR STORY AND WE ARE AT YOUR SIDE, ALWAYS!”
