Britney Spears says she’ll never perform again as long as her dad remains in control of her life.
The pop star took to Instagram to post a lengthy diatribe against her haters – including her father. The post was accompanied by an image that reads, ‘Take me as I am or kiss my a**, eat sh*t, and step on legos.’ The pop star starts her post by taking a few swipes at her online critics.
“For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos, look, I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think,” Spears begins. It’s the first time she’s been so direct about her feelings outside of a courtroom.
“I’ve done that for the past 13 years, I’d much rather share videos from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas where some people were so far gone they couldn’t even shake my hand, and I ended up getting a contact high from weed all the time.”
Will Britney Spears ever perform again? The singer is signaling a big emphatic ‘NO’ to her fans.
She also rips into her sister Jamie Lynn Spears and her feelings of how the conservatorship has made her feel. “I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes. My so-called support system hurt me deeply! This conservatorship killed my dreams, so all I have is hope, and hope is the only thing in this world that’s very hard to kill, yet people still try.”
“I didn’t like the way the documentaries bring up humiliating moments from the past. I’m way past all that and have been for a long time,” she continues. “If you don’t want to see my precious ass dancing in my living room or it’s not up to your standards, go read a f**king book!” the pop star finishes.
Spears has previously expressed her distaste for The New York Times documentaries highlighting her controversial conservatorship. And while the details of her treatment were painful to watch, it put a spotlight on how conservatorships are potential avenues for abuse. Spears’ high-profile case even has the attention of Congress.
It will be interesting to see if Spears is able to negotiate the end of her conservatorship. A judge recently granted her the right to choose her own representation, which may be the first step in that direction.
