Nobody can keep up with the Britney Spears documentary, not even Britney herself: there’s the New York Times’ “Framing Britney Spears” released on Hulu and highlighting the #FreeBritney movement, there is a new BBC documentary, ‘The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship,’ produced by award-winning investigative journalist Mobeen Azhar, and reportedly challenging the #FreeBritney movement, by questioning the basis of rumors circulating all over the internet – it allegedly will feature unpublished interviews with ex-choreographer Brian Friedman, ex-makeup artist Billy Brasfield, lawyer Lisa MacCarley, and Perez Hilton – and there is an upcoming doc made by Netflix. How many documentaries are necessary to tell the same story, especially when nobody is certain of the story, and nobody can tell how much freedom Britney really has.
Since 2008, she has been placed under a conservatorship led by her father Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet, who have complete control of her life and assets, and since 2019, the pop star has been involved in a legal dispute over her conservatorship. She is supposed to make a Los Angeles court appearance at a June 23 hearing… It’s gonna be a circus over there!
Meanwhile, her Instagram account, her only connection with her fans since she has not performed in public since 2018, is one of the happiest pages of the internet, as it is filled with butterflies, pecan pies, spectacular roses, cute animals, fairy tales imagery and Britney dances: she is consistently wearing sexy outfits, smiling and dancing in loops on her beautiful marble floor. However, in one of her last posts, she acknowledged the documentaries, but probably not the way her fans expected:
‘2021 is definitely way better than 2020 but I never knew it was gonna be like THIS ??? !!!! So many documentaries about me this year with other people’s takes on my life … what can I say … I’m deeply flattered !!!! These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing ???????? Damn … I don’t know y’all but I’m thrilled to remind you all that although I’ve had some pretty tough times in my life … I’ve had waaaayyyy more amazing times in my life and unfortunately my friends … I think the world is more interested in the negative ??♀️??♀️??♀️ !!!! I mean … isn’t this supposed to be a business and society about THE FUTURE ??? ???? Why highlight the most negative and traumatizing times in my life from forever ago ???? I mean DAMN … on a lighter note … this is a video of me dancing ??? !!!! I have so many trips I’m looking forward to taking this summer and I can’t wait to dance in different studios ?♀️?♀️?♀️ !!!! I’m hoping to get a miniature koi pond in my backyard as well ??? !!!! I know I’m weird but hey … it’s the little things you know … and I’m so grateful for my beautiful backyard !!!! @betterhomesandgardens should put me on their cover … I’m no @MarthaStewart that’s for sure … but I will tell you I have the finest garden here in LA ????????? !!!! I hope you’re all living your best lives and shit or as @parishilton would say SLIVING!!! … I know I am ???!!!! PSSSS I don’t actually talk to Billy B AT ALL so I’m honestly very confused ??? !!! This is my Instagram !!!! PSSSSS no paparazzi guy … I didn’t want you and your crew following me around !!!!’
Could she have added more emojis? ‘These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing’ is the odd part of this otherwise super optimistic post. Is Britney Spears calling the documentaries made about her hypocritical? This has revived the speculations that she is not in control of her Instagram account. Why would she call the documentaries hypocritical when they are trying to investigate her problematic conservatorship? ‘This isn’t her,’ you can read all over the comments… ‘Seems like it’s a little overkill with the emojis. I don’t think this is Britney,’ wrote someone else… ‘I mean she isn’t legally allowed to use her phone without permission. could easily be someone else writing these.’
If this is really the case, there is no reason to think anything posted on her page is actually hers. As for Billy B she mentions at the end of her post, he is Billy Brasfield, her former makeup artist, who spoke to Page Six a few weeks ago, claiming ‘he personally spoke to Britney and that she told him she had no control over the caption.’ ‘The content is her, but … the words are NOT how she feels,’ he added. He even spoke to 60 Minutes Australia.
As previously speculated by Brasfield, this post may be an attempt to distract people from her legal battle over her conservatorship. Of course, this claim was denied by Cassie Petrey, who runs Spears social media for the company Crowd Surf and who affirmed that ‘Britney creates her own posts and writes her own captions for Instagram.’
Then it was again refuted by Britney herself, who spoke with TMZ and declared she didn’t talk to Brasfield: ‘No, I’m not talking to him at all. I write my posts. I’m not sure who he is talking to, but I am not talking to Billy B.’
This is a crazy situation, and even fans do not know whom to believe, some don’t trust Brasfield! However, why would Britney criticize documentaries that highlight the #FreeBritney movement and the fans who want to help her? Why would she call the documentaries hypocritical?
