In an oblique post on social media, Britney Spears appears to have responded to the recently released documentary, Framing Britney Spears, which examines the singer’s life under conservatorship.
In a recent Instagram post, Spears shared footage of her performing ‘Toxic’ live from three years ago. In its caption, she writes about how she is “taking the time to learn and be a normal person”, and brings up how the public’s perception of a celebrity is different to how “the actual person living behind the lens”.
“I’ll always love being on stage …. but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ….. I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life !!!!” Spears wrote.
“Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives !!!
“Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens !!!!”
Framing Britney Spears was produced by the New York Times and broadcast in the US last weekend on FX and FX On Hulu. The documentary explores the pop star’s rise to prominence, her legal conservatorship and the related #FreeBritney movement.
Spears was not interviewed for the documentary, with a statement at the end of the film noting that producers attempted to contact her multiple times.
