Britney Spears Slams ‘Hypocritical’ Documentaries That ‘Highlight’ Her Most ‘Traumatizing’ Moments

Britney Spears wrote about people being interested in 'the negative' parts of her life, just two days after the BBC premiered a new controversial documentary about her.

Britney Spears, 39, is speaking out against recent documentaries made about her in her latest Instagram post. The singer shared a video that included clips of her dancing at two different times and added a long caption about how she thinks the media has been focusing more on the “negative” times in her life rather than the “amazing” moments. She also called the unnamed documentaries, which most likely includes the BBC’s The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship, “hypocritical.”

“Geez !!!! 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 !!!!” the caption began. “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 🤧🤧🤧 ????” she continued. “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 !!!!”

The blonde beauty went on to praise her garden in Los Angeles and quoted old pal Paris Hilton at the end of her message before mentioning “Billy B”, who is believed to be Billy Brasfield, the makeup artist who claimed she told him she didn’t have control over her previous Instagram post that criticized FX/Hulu’s Framing Britney Spears documentary, which premiered in Feb. “I don’t actually talk to Billy B AT ALL so I’m honestly very confused 😂😂😂 !!!” she wrote. “This is my Instagram !!!! PSSSSS no paparazzi guy … I didn’t want you and your crew following me around !!!!”

Although Britney didn’t mention Framing Britney Spears or The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship in her new lengthy post, they are two of the most famous documentaries made about her in the last year, and many of her fans have been speaking out against some claims they include. BBC’s doc, which premiered on May 1, discussed a report that claims her dad Jamie Spears suggested she may have dementia when filling out paperwork to keep conservatorship over her estate, which was established in 2008. FX’s doc highlighted the struggles she had with media over the years as well as the #FreeBritney movement her fans started after believing she’s being unfairly controlled by her father and team.

In her previous Instagram post about Framing Britney Spears, Britney admitted she “cried for 2 weeks” over how she was portrayed in the film and felt “judged, insulted, and embarrassed.”

“I didn’t watch the 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!!!!” she wrote in part of the message, which was posted on Mar. 30. “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.”
