This is a PSA to watch Framing Britney Spears ASAP (if you haven’t already).
It’s important to note that I wasn’t completely sold by the #FreeBritney movement prior to streaming the Hulu documentary. Did I think Britney Spears had changed since her “Baby One More Time” days? Absolutely. But did I think she was being held against her will? Not entirely, especially since I’m an avid follower of her Instagram account, where she regularly posts seemingly happy dancing videos, workout clips and selfies.
That being said, I went into Framing Britney Spears with an open mind, hoping it would educate me about where the #FreeBritney movement originated and why it’s become so popular. Not only did the documentary do just that, but it also opened my eyes to the years-long court battle between Spears and her dad, Jamie, who controls his daughter’s estate, finances and life.
