Britney Spears lamented how she is portrayed in the recently released New York Times documentary “Framing Britney Spears,” admitting that she found it embarrassing.

Spears disclosed that she cried for over two weeks – and still do sometimes – over the documentary, which tells the story of how the media treated the pop star, including her legal conservatorship of around 12 years.


“My life has always been very speculated… watched… and judged really my whole life!!!” Spears said in an Instagram post earlier today, March 31.

Framing Britney Spears,” in which Spears herself was not a part of the production, premiered on FX on Feb. 5, and is now available on Hulu.

Her post came with a video of Spears dancing to Aerosmith’s “Crazy,” as the singer noted that for her sanity, she dances to Steven Tyler’s music every night “to feel wild and human and alive!!!”

“I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people!!! It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I’ve always been so judged… insulted… and embarrassed by the media… and I still am till this day!!!!” Spears emphasized.

“As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people!!! I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in,” she added.

Despite this, Spears noted that she still strives to be positive, saying, “I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy… love… and happiness.”

She then reiterated how dancing helps her and that doing it every day “brings [her] joy.”


“I’m not here to be perfect… perfect is boring… I’m here to pass on kindness,” Spears said.

Following the release of the said documentary, the #FreeBritney movement came about while Spears’ former boyfriend Justin Timberlake came under sharp criticism for his actions toward the pop star back then.  /ra
