Pop princess Britney Spears has seen a resurgence in her media coverage in recent years for more than one reason. After details about Spears’ controversial conservatory came to light in 2019, a two-year campaign was launched by her supporters – and later by Spears herself – to help him escape the notorious conservatory run by her father Jamie Spears, who allegedly committed acts of abuse against his daughter .
This campaign, which included two major documentaries on the drama (one in February 2021, produced by The New York Times and published by Hulu, and another in September 2021, published by Netflix), culminated in the termination of her conservatory in November 2021. Since then, Dann, freed from the shackles of her conservatory, Spears announced her engagement and subsequent marriage to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari and her intention to have a third child. Spears then announced she was pregnant – happy news that was devastating after Spears revealed her miscarriage, although the couple have since announced their intention to keep trying.
Now Spears is taking to social media to take a stand against the conservatory’s documentaries, who want to praise themselves for helping her through this difficult time.
Britney Spears calls documentaries the most insulting thing I’ve ever seen in my life
On July 9, Britney Spears posted a since-deleted Instagram rant, in which she denounced the intensity of the media spotlight around her and eventually called out the 2021 conservatory documentaries about her. Though she didn’t name the documentaries, it’s safe to assume she was referring to Hulu’s high-profile Framing Britney Spears and September 2021 Netflix’s Britney vs Spears.
She began writing, “I feel like America did a great job of humiliating me,” while continuing to say she “never felt so bullied in my life in this country, it’s crazy.” (via Just Jared). Spears then asked, “Is it really legal to make so many documentaries about someone without their blessing?
Spears also denounced the notion that the documentaries “help her,” as they claimed, writing, “It was the most offensive thing I’ve ever seen in my life and every person I spoke to said, that this was the reason for the end of the Conservatory… REALLY??? It’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” Instead, Spears said the documentaries were “completely humiliating[d]she and posits that it was really her own viral public statement in 2021 (via The New York Times) that really ended conservatoire. ! THAT said it all… that would be ENOUGH.”
