After the ‘Framing Britney Spears’ documentary aired on FX, Britney has finally spoken out.

The documentary explores the controversial conservatorship under which her father, Jamie Spears, manages her estate. Many fans have taken to the #FreeBritney hashtag on social media to express their support for the singer to be released from that arrangement. Spears has sought court assistance to end her father’s conservatorship role, but it was not granted.

Spears took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to share a video of her performing “Toxic” on-stage. “Can’t believe this performance of Toxic is from three 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,” the tweet states.

Spears has been under the conservatorship since 2008, giving her father total control over her life. She has not referenced the conservatorship directly in her most recent tweets, however.

“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!” she wrote to fans.

Jamie Spears remains in control of Spears’ estate as co-conservator, along with the financial company Bessemer Trust. The judge has not ruled out future petitions for Spears’ removal, so it very well may come up again. Britney Spears has refused to perform on stage since she remains under the conservatorship.

Her ex-husband Kevin Federline has spoken out in favor of her proposal. It would see Jodi Montgomery, the singer’s care manager, becoming conservator in her father’s place. The controversial documentary hasn’t stopped fans from supporting Spears’ release, rather it’s intensified it.

A #FreeBritney podcast is now in the works on the back of the Framing Britney Spears documentary.

Two contributors in the documentary, Babs Gray and Tess Barker, will explore Spears’ career. The as of yet untitled podcast will feature exclusive sources and interviews – including with the anonymous paralegal referenced in the documentary. They are also the original founders of the #FreeBritney movement on social media.

The new show is being produced with Stitcher’s Witness Docs unit. That unit is also responsible for the Heaven’s Gate podcast, which was adapted into a docuseries for HBO Max. The duo hope to uncover more clues behind Britney Spears’ seemingly mysterious references on social media.

    Some of the biggest music names surrounding Britney Spears stand to lose over a Billion with infractions, corporate mindset, intellectual property theft over the most iconic track bringing her youth into womanhood.. I’m A Slave 4 U.

    I’d like to get a message to Britney Spears regarding Robert John Mutt Lange / Zomba-Jive Records / Universal Music / Sony Music entertainment / Pharrell Williams / Charles Edward Hugo / Lord Henry Hadaway of HHO Publishing.

    In 2006 Senior Vice President of EMI Publishing states in his letter in Dean Hajas possession, that the 2005 Slave Driver Remix was in fact “NOT WRITTEN BY Pharrell Williams / Chad Hugo nor the Neptunes”. Dave Aude didn’t write it either and is only credited with the Performance Royalties of creating the mix.

    How does a track released originally in 2001, with bare bones, almost no melody musically, with a stripped down rhythm track and a vocal go to the 2005 hit dance track, with neither the Neptunes nor Dave Aude being credited….?

    The musical bed described in the 2005 dance smash hit, was written fully and owned by Dean Hajas from 1995. The song was solicited on Sept. 23. 2001 to both HHO Publishing – Lord Henry Hadaway and then on the same day at Zomba / Jive records headquarters.

    4 years later on Dec. 23, 2005, Dean Hajas identified with the song, the melody, the arrangement immediately at Future Shop, in Brantford ON. Canada.

    Having spoken with Eric Levine of Zomba – NewYork, he wrote to Bruce Scavuzzo and divulged both their contact information to Dean Hajas. Bruce Scavuzzo cc’d Dean Hajas and pointed fingers back at Zomba – Jive records since they “commissioned the song mix” that was put out by Dave Aude.

    Britney Spears has been held hostage by a grand scheme of trickery by those around her, that presented her with I’m A Slave 4 U, and have held her against her will for 13 years.

    Please help get this message to Britney Spears. When she gets to see my compelling evidence, that has been shared on this thread, Britney will “Hit the Roof”, with the realization, she’s been lied to by absolutely everyone around her. This compelling evidence needs to see the light of day, in order to truly help #FreeBritney.

    She reaped the benefits and knew what she was doing. Pity her, I do not.
