“I cried for two weeks,” Britney Spears Breaks Silence Over ‘Framing Britney’ Doc

today31 March 2021


Ever since the release of ‘Framing Britney Spears’ – a documentary that follows the ‘Oops!… I Did It Again’  singers rise to fame, her treatment by the paparazzi, her highly-publicized breakdown in 2007 and her court-mandated conservatorship overseen by her father Jamie Spears – the question on everyone’s mind is: What does Britney Spears think of it? After all, she had no actual part in the creation of the documentary. Nay, at the end of the documentary, there is a note by the producers stating that despite their attempts to reach Spears and the people closest to her (her family, attorney, former manager), they never heard back.


Now, in a post to her Instagram account that sees her dancing to Aerosmith’s 1993 hit, ‘Crazy’, Spears refers to the documentary as something that “embarrassed her” and made her cry “for two weeks”.

Her caption reads:


“My life has always been very speculated …

watched … and judged really my whole life !!! […] 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 ?????? !!!! 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 … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!! I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy … love … and happiness ✨?? ☀️ !!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I’m not here to be perfect … perfect is boring … I’m here to pass on kindness ??? !!!!”


Sources close to the 39-year-old pop star have noted that the documentary has had its benefits, however. According to the source, who spoke to Entertainment Tonight, Spears has received “tremendous support from her fans” following the release of the documentary, nothing that it has inspired an outpouring of more love than ever”. Not to mention the fact that her boyfriend of four years, Sam Asghari, has also had her back through the tough conservatorship battle.

Immediately after the documentary aired, Asghari told People:


“I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves. I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together.”

Director of the ‘Framing Britney’ documentary, Samantha Stark, had addressed Spears’s lack of involvement in the documentary after its publication, telling Entertainment Tonight that she felt a “big ethical conflict” because Spears was not able to tell her side of the story. Rather, what we see in the documentary are old clips and video footage that the New York Times producers pulled together, along with commentary by people from Britney’s past: former assistant Felicia Bulotta, former lawyer Adam Streisand and videographer Daniel Ramos (whose car she smashed with an umbrella in 2007 after her cousin repeatedly asked him to stop recording Britney and he didn’t). However, Stark highlighted that she and her team had tried, multiple times, to reach the star.
