Britney Spears has spoken out about the Framing Britney documentary by the New York Times. The singer says she felt embarrassed by the bits she saw and cried for two weeks.
The singer posted a video on Instagram madly dancing to Aerosmith’s song ‘Crazy’ in her Thousand Oaks mansion. She provided a heartfelt message in the caption of how she felt about the latest documentary and her life in the spotlight in general.
“I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in,” she wrote. “I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes.”
Framing Britney brings to light the now popular Free Britney movement – which aims to bring light into the captive-like life the pop star has been living in under a conservatorship lead by her father Jamie Spears.
“My life has always been very speculated, watched, and judged really my whole life,” she writes. “I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people. It takes a lot of strength to trust the universe with your real vulnerability cause I’ve always been so judged, insulted, and embarrassed by the media and I still am till this day. As the world keeps on turning and life goes on, we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people.”
Spears has been in a long court battle with her father to remove him from the conservatorship. The latest development is that her team is still asking to get him removed and his attorney’s have asked that Britney pay $2 million of his legal fees. He is also asking to get paid $16,000 plus $2,000 for every month between Nov. 1, 2019 to Feb. 28, 2021 that he acted as her conservator.
Britney ended the Instagram post caption on a lighter note. “I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy, love, and happiness. Every day dancing brings me joy. I’m not here to be perfect – perfect is boring – I’m here to pass on kindness.”
The next court hearing is April 27. Britney’s legal team will seek to make Jodi Montgomery her permanent conservator. He has been serving as her conservator temporarily since the end of February.
