Britney Spears Is Addressing the ‘NYT’ Documentary for the First Time
Since its release on Friday, it seems all anyone has been talking about is The New York Times’s latest documentary, Framing Britney Spears. And now, Spears herself is addressing the investigative feature.
On Tuesday, the 39-year-old pop star shared a video on Instagram, seemingly referring to the Hulu doc. The personal post featured a video clip of her 2017 performance at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
“Can’t believe this performance of Toxic is from 3 years ago !!! I’ll always love being on stage .... but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ..... I love simply enjoying the basics of everyday life!!!!” she captioned the clip. “Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person's life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens.” While we can’t know for sure, it was the latter part of the post that seemed to reference the film.
The New York Times-produced documentary offers a glimpse into Spears’s infamous conservatorship (we didn’t know exactly what that meant either). In short, it just means that her father, Jamie Spears, has been appointed as her guardian and makes all of her decisions for her.
The hour-long program does a deep dive into Spears’s successful career and the way she was portrayed by the media. It also touches upon her life as a mother and her public breakdown.
If you haven’t seen it yet, we highly recommend you do.
