Singer Britney Spears has attacked makers of documentaries about her personal life saying they are “hypocritical” and instead of focusing on the positive things they chose to focus on her ‘traumatizing past’.
It seems the pop star was taking aim at the latest documentary ‘The Battle for Britney: Fan, Cash and a Conservatorship’ which aired on BBC during the weekend.
In a lengthy Instagram caption of a video of her dancing she said, “2021 is definitely way better than 2020 but I never knew it was gonna be like this!!!!
“So many documentaries about me this year with other people’s takes on my life … What can I say … I’m deeply flattered ! ! ! ! These documentaries are so hypocritical … They criticize the media and then do the same thing? ”
The 39-year-old singer went on to indicate how much she doesn’t appreciate how the ‘most negative and traumatizing times’ of her life are used as the ‘highlight’ of the documentaries and says there are more positive things people can focus on.”
“Damn … 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! I mean … Isn’t this supposed to be a business and society about the future? Why highlight the most negative and traumatizing times in my life from forever ago?” she continued.
The Scream and Shout singer then set the record straight on speculations that her social media posts were being written by her make-up artist Billy Brasfield.
She concluded: “Pssss I don’t actually talk to Billy B at all so I’m honestly very confused!!! This is my Instagram!! Psssss no paparazzi guy … I didn’t want you and your crew following me around!!
Last week Britney’s father Jamie Spears accused his ex-wife Lynne of ‘exploiting their daughter’s pain and trauma.’ In her defense Lynne said she was just concerned that Jamie was also using Britney’s case to restore his tarnished image in the media.
