The Tell-All Oprah Interview That Could Be Even Bigger Than Meghan & Harry's

Oops!...Oprah Winfrey might do it again.

After that tell-all interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Winfrey recorded an exclusive conversation with HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. And now, it seems that Winfrey could line up another major name if she wanted: Britney Spears.

Although there aren't any official plans yet, a source told Entertainment Tonight, "Britney has considered speaking out about her past, mostly because she doesn't feel others should tell her story...She's always hated doing interviews but if she ever takes that step, Oprah would most likely be her first choice. At this point, there is no plan in the works for her to do an interview but when she does, there will be steps Britney would need to take before speaking out."

A potential Oprah interview would be headline-grabbing in light of a recently-released documentary from The New York Times, titled Framing Britney Spears. The film, which details the conservatorship Spears was placed under in 2008, has brought even more attention to the star's highly publicized personal life. It has also given more fuel to the #FreeBritney movement, an effort launched in 2009 to release Spears from the legal control of her father.

According to ET, Spears has been happier lately, due to the support from fans. They report that, "The release of the documentary has inspired an outpouring of more love than ever. While [Spears] hasn't been able to make changes to her conservatorship, she's received millions of messages from fans on social media and she feels far more understood."

While Winfrey's interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex garnered heavy media attention (and Winfrey's commentary became a social media meme), this one could be even bigger. We're keeping our fingers crossed.
