Britney Spears and her fans’ struggle for control of her own life has been made into a documentary. The documentary was produced by The New York Times and will go into further detail about the complex case surrounding Britney and her conservatorship.
There’s been a lot going on around Britney Spears for several months now. After her breakdown in 2007, the singer was placed under conservatorship. The court then ruled that the singer could not guarantee the decisions in her own life, her finances or her career. We are now 14 years later and Britney Spears, who is now 39 years old, still has no control over her life.
It is a complex case in which Britney Spears’ father, together with a judge, eventually took control of the singer’s life and fortune. Originally that conservatorship would last barely two years, but those two years still continue.
Many fans have therefore taken action in the past year. With petitions, hashtags and even protests to court, they wanted to encourage Britney to regain control of her own life. But she didn’t get that for the time being. For example, the conservatorship was recently even extended again until September 2021.
Framing Britney Spears
It is abundantly clear that there is a lot to tell about the case. That’s why The New York Times decided to devote a documentary to it. The documentary will pay attention to the career of Britney Spears, in which she quickly became one of the biggest stars in the world.
In addition, the documentary will also go deeper into how Britney struggled with mental problems throughout her life and how she ended up in recording. And of course a large part of the documentary will be about the conservatorship and Britney’s struggle to regain independence.
Framing Britney Spears will be airing on Hulu starting February 5.
