Britney Spears has finally spoken about the documentary “Framing Britney Spears.” Spears discussed the documentary for the first time in an Instagram post on Tuesday featuring Aerosmith’s “Crazy” and dancing. She wrote that she hadn’t seen the complete documentary, but was very embarrassed after watching whatever parts of it she did. The singer stated that she cried for two weeks and still does!
“I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in,” Spears wrote. “I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes!!!!”
The Instagram post stated:
My life has always been very speculated …
watched … and judged really my whole life !!! For my sanity I need to dance to @iamstevent every night of my life 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 to feel wild and human and alive !!! 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 !!! I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!! 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 💋💋💋 !!!!
Spears finished her message, however, with a gentle note, writing that “everyday dancing” gives her joy and she isn’t “here to be perfect.”
Although Spears was not a documentary film holder, “Framing Britney Spears” took a profound plunge into the media’s representation of the singer and of events that led in 2008 to her father’s conservator, Jamie Spears. The New YorkTimes and Links/Right Productions documentary helped to revive #FreeBritney, a campaign that hopes Spears can come out of the conservatory.
Samantha Stark, producer and director of “Framing Britney Spears,” said in a February interview with Variety that she tried very hard to get in touch with Spears with the project. Still, ultimately she was unsure if her request ever reached the singer.
“We tried every which way to get a smoke signal to Britney about the documentary, but there is such a tight circle around her that we don’t know if she got those requests or not,” Stark said. “We didn’t get a ‘no’ from her. We never got anything from her.”
Spears showed that she does not want Jamie anymore to be her conservator and asked Jodi Montgomery to be her permanent conservator last week. The next hearing on her curatorial duties is scheduled for 27 April.
Britney Spears has lodged an official request by her lawyers to have him disqualified as her conservator. She has been under his guardianship for 12 years.
The pop star has demanded that James “Jamie” Spears be resigned as their personal conservator according to the documents submitted Tuesday at the Los Angeles probate tribunal.
She intends to replace him with Jodi Montgomery, a state conservative who has been briefly a conservator after her father gave up his position due to health issues in September 2019. Britney Spears has reserved the right, under the State Probate Code, to seek a permanent termination of her conservatorship.
Her counsel, in an attachment, attempted to ensure that Montgomery had the right to make medical decisions, consult with her physicians and access her health records. She may also restrict visitors to Britney, with the exception of her counsel, maintain guardians and security guards 24/24, and enforce orders deemed necessary for civil harassment restraining.
She said fans who accuse Jamie Spears of mistreating his daughter have it “so wrong.”
Thoreen told CNN on Feb. 25.
(Jamie) would love nothing more than to see Britney not need a conservatorship, whether or not there is an end to the conservatorship really depends on Britney. If she wants to end her conservatorship, she can file a petition to end it.
