Britney Spears, or whoever is posting to her social media account, is letting fans know that she does not appreciate the negative media attention brought on by the recent string of documentaries focused on her life. The Princess of Pop posted a lengthy message Monday afternoon via Instagram where she called out the producers of the documentaries for allegedly only highlighting the trauma she endured, but doing nothing to better the situation or take a positive approach to any aspect of her life.
“So many documentaries about me this year with other people’s takes on my life … what can I say … I’m deeply flattered!” Britney wrote while showing off a video of her dance skills.
She continued, “These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing ????????”
A few months after Hulu aired “Framing Britney Spears,” produced by The New York Times, the BBC has announced their own documentary into Britney’s life, “The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship.”
The messaging from Britney is interesting, especially considering the current battle the singer is locked in with her father over the ongoing conservatorship. However, Britney apparently wants to remind her fans that things ain’t all bad.
“I don’t know y’all but I’m thrilled to remind you all that although I’ve had some pretty tough times in my life … I’ve had waaaayyyy more amazing times in my life and unfortunately my friends … I think the world is more interested in the negative!”
Ending her message, Britney asks why the media must continue to “highlight the most negative and traumatizing times in my life from forever ago,” instead of focusing on her flashy dancing videos regularly posted to social media.
Although Britney’s message and video received near 1 million views in the couple of hours it has been posted, not everyone is believing the singer’s message.
“Nah sis, do a video of you saying all of this and maybe I’ll buy it,” one fan wrote.
“Hmmm I don’t know about this one,” another comment read.
Many fans of Britney have long suspected her social media accounts are controlled by her management team in order to send a manipulating message to the public.
