The international pop-star's social media is where she shares a lot of the details from her 13-year conservatorship - which traumatised her so badly she will no longer perform.
Britney Spears has revealed that she probably won't ever perform again after experiences during her conservatorship left her "traumatised."
Spears posted a note on her Instagram yesterday (September 11), which has since been deleted, but was briefly caught by Rolling Stone. The note acts as a reflection on her career during her 13-year-long conservatorship.
In the since-deleted message, the singer wrote that she will “probably never perform again just because I’m stubborn and I will make my point”, sharing examples of the trauma leading to this decision.
Opening the post by explaining the lack of creative control she had over her music videos during that era, Spears informed fans that the only visual she actually like was from track 'Work Bitch'. Britney also wrote about the experiences she's had with photographers.
"...[T]he most offensive SO CALLED professional pictures on every tour. I mean they could have at least cheated and retouched them for me... just saying... 2 day shoots for new show in Vegas literally the worst ever... and me excited for the pictures for 5 months on tour... they never showed me any.
"I’d rather quit shit in my pool and shoot photos of myself in studios over working with the most offensive people in my life."
Spears added that the number of dancers she was forced to perform with during her four-year Las Vegas residency made her extremely uncomfortable - one of the multiple reasons she's unlikely to perform again.
"I’m pretty traumatised for life and yes I’m pissed as fuck and no I won’t probably perform again just because I’m stubborn and I will make my point," the singer said.
Spears has also opened up about her strained relationship with her two sons.
Jayden Federline, Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline's 15-year-old son, revealed in an ITV documentary that he and his brother have distanced themselves from their mother.
Complex has reported that Spears, who addressed Jayden’s comments last week in an Instagram post, said in a voice note on her Instagram on Saturday (September 10): “I used to have my kids, at one point, more than Kevin.
“People don’t remember that part because they always focus on the negative, but when they were six to nine years old, I had them 70 per cent of the time. Since they’ve been gone, I’ve honestly felt like a huge part of me has died. Like literally, I have no purpose anymore. They were my joy, they were my everything... that was what I lived for.”
Spears recently shared a lengthy voice note online discussing her conservatorship and life since it came to an end last year. The singer was freed from her 13-year-long conservatorship last November, following an extensive campaign from lawyers and fans.
In July 2021, Spears called the conservatorship “abusive”, which led to the suspension of her father's role as conservator in September 2021. The conservatorship ended approximately two months later.
