Britney Spears, 39, has slammed documentaries about her life as hypocritical, taking them to task in a lengthy new Instagram. She has also denied that she is not in charge of her own social media. Now, she’s spoken out about her story being told via documentaries that she has not authorized.
The singer was made a subject of the New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears. BBC has also produced The Battle For Britney: Fans, Cash And A Conservatorship, based on her life. Both productions detailed the popstar’s mental health issues that ultimately led to her father Jamie obtaining control of her person and estate in a conservatorship 13 years ago and the massive media frenzy surrounding her very public breakdown.
Britney is preparing to address her conservatorship in court next month. She is set to appear for a ‘status hearing’ regarding her conservatorship on June 23. She has been under conservatorship for the last 13 years due to mental health crisis in 2008 from which she was hospitalized.
The BBC documentary showed that Briney’s dad claimed that she has ‘dementia’ to secure her conservatorship.
“Geez !!!! 2021 is definitely way better than 2020, but I never knew it was gonna be like THIS!!!!” she began in the lengthy caption of an Instagram post paired with a video containing clips of her dancing. “So many documentaries about me this year with other people’s takes on my life … what can I say … I’m deeply flattered!!!!” Spears continued. “These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing?????” The star acknowledged that she has faced “some pretty tough times” in her life, but insisted that she’s “had waaaayyyy more amazing times,” she wrote.
Britney revealed that while she’s endured a lot, she’s also enjoyed some fantastic times, things that don’t get focused on in the dramatic documentaries produced about her. The star is frequently in the headlines as her conservatorship battle in court intensifies, and the unauthorized documentaries seem to keep on coming.
