Pop icon Britney Spears has finally broken her silence, speaking out about her eye-opening documentary for the first time since it was released two months ago.
Framing Britney Spears was a documentary produced for The New York Times Presents docuseries, following Britney’s explosive career, leading to her public breakdown and her father’s conservatorship, as well as the media’s ugly portrayal of her mental health struggles, legal battles and the #FreeBritney movement which has cropped up in recent years.
On Tuesday evening, Britney took to Instagram to address the documentary for the first time. “My life has always been very speculated ... watched ... and judged really my whole life !!!” the 39-year-old Toxic singer wrote in her lengthy Instagram caption.
“For my sanity I need to dance to @iamstevent every night of my life to feel wild and human and alive!!!” she added, alongside a lively video of her dancing at home.
Britney goes on to explain, “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!!!”
The mom-of-two goes on to admit that she hasn’t watched the Framing Britney Spears 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,” the Oops!...I Did It Again singer concluded.
