Britney says she ‘cried for two weeks’ after ‘Framing Britney Spears’ documentary

“Framing Britney Spears,” which aired in February, profiled the vocalist’s distressing life in the spotlight and explored the court-sanctioned conservatorship that offers her dad, Jamie Spears, power over her financial resources and individual affairs.

Reacting to the movie on Tuesday night, Spears informed her 29 million Instagram fans that she had “cried for two weeks” following its broadcast.

“My life has always been very speculated … watched … and judged really my whole life !!!” she composed, along with a video of her dancing to the Aerosmith tune “Crazy” in her house.

The 39-year-old continued: “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!!!

According to Spears, she didn’t watch the documentary in its entirety but was “ashamed” by how she was portrayed.

“I didn’t view the documentary however from what I did see of it I was humiliated by the light they put me in … I sobbed for 2 weeks and well …. I still sob in some cases!!!!”

Samantha Stark, the director of the New York Times-made documentary, told Entertainment Tonight last month that her team “attempted whatever” to secure an interview with Spears but got nowhere.

After discussing the documentary, Spears stated in her Instagram post: “I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to attempt and keep my own happiness … love … and joy!!!! Every day dancing brings me happiness!!! I’m not here to be ideal … ideal is tiring … I’m here to hand down compassion !!!!”

CNN has reached out to Spears’ representatives for further comment.

The singer has been subject to a court-ordered conservatorship since 2008, following a series of personal issues that played out publicly.

At a hearing on the conservatorship in November, her lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, asked a Los Angeles judge to permanently remove the elder Spears from his role, saying the singer would not be returning to the stage while he remained in control of her fortune.

Spears is requesting that Jodi Montgomery, a temporary conservator appointed in 2019, become her permanent personal conservator.
