''One of the defining moments of my career was working with Britney. I was her personal MUA for the Gimme More music video and a couple of photo shoots. She had just shaved her head and was getting a nothing but bad press. She sabotaged the director by refusing to perform and follow the script. So, what we got was her dancing on a stripper pole with her friends." - Mikal Sky (make-up artist)
''I wrote ''Gimme More'' with Britney in mind. With Britney, I need to get as much of any song done as I can before she enters the studio. She likes to record quickly, partly because she doesn't like to stand up for too long.'' - Keri Hilson (songwriter)
"She was amazing to work with, she is a very hard worker. We recorded that while she was pregnant with her second child. It was really difficult to try to make her sound really sexy an at the same time she was pregnant. We knew that as soon as she had the baby she was the one to be able to push that song. We needed that one catch phrase to really bring her back and put her stamp on the industry and that stamp was 'It's Britney Bitch'.'' - Jim Beanz (songwriter)
