"It's been so long since I've been out on the town with friends. It's also been 2 years since I've even celebrated my birthday," Spears, who marked her 25th birthday bash on Saturday with a trip to Mr. Chow's restaurant in Beverly Hills, wrote on her official website.
The singer has been spotted out recently with with the venerable Ho Train - gal pals including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan - and revealing photographs of her getting out of the car have circulated online.
Britney made a thinly-veiled, joking reference to the now infamous crotch shot debacle in her online statement.
"Every move I make at this point has been magnified more than I expected, and I probably did take my new found freedom a bit too far," Spears said.
"Anyway, thank God for Victoria Secrets' [sic] new underwear line! I look forward to a new year, new music and a new me."
She signs off: "I'm just getting started... Happy Holidays everyone!"
Eh? Getting started what, Brit? Giving us nude pictures? Turning your life around? Birthing massive amounts of babies? Elaborate for us, girl! Inquiring, gossiping minds want to know.
