Her conservatorship is firmly back in the limelight thanks to a series of new documentaries.

But Britney Spears has called the attention 'hypocritical' in a rare statement about her situation, following the weekend release of BBC documentary The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash And A Conservatorship.

The pop princess wrote: “2021 is definitely way better than 2020 but I never knew it was gonna be like THIS !!!! So many documentaries about me this year with other people's takes on my life."

Also referring to a second hugely talked about documentary about her legal troubles, Framing Britney Spears, released in February and available in the UK on Sky and NOW TV, Britney added: “What can I say … I’m deeply flattered !!!!

"These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing?????"

Britney was not involved in the production of either documentary.

She continued: "Damn … I don’t know y’all but I’m thrilled to remind you all that although I've had some pretty tough times in my life … I've had waaaayyyy more amazing times in my life and unfortunately my friends … I think the world is more interested in the negative!"

The latest documentary concerning Britney’s conservatorship was released to stream on BBC iPlayer on Saturday and will be broadcast on BBC 2 in two weeks’ time.

Through Instagram Britney pondered why these documentaries were so keen to “highlight the most negative and traumatizing times in my life from forever ago ????".

The music legend carried on by posting a video of her dancing and said: “I'm looking forward to taking this summer and I can't wait to dance in different studios."

The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship was made by filmmaker Mobeen Azhar, who was allowed access to one of her conservatorship hearings in December 2020.

The latest documentary explores the conservatorship which she has been under since 2008, following a well-publicised mental health crisis.

It also features interviews with former choreographer Brian Friedman, and infamous paparazzo Perez Hilton.

The #FreeBritney movement has gained considerable traction over the past couple of years, with fans pleading for her release from her conservatorship, but Perez Hilton offers a fresh perspective.

He said in the BBC documentary: “If she didn't have a conservatorship in place, I would be concerned that Britney would be dead, truly."

Britney’s father Jamie Spears was in charge of her personal conservatorship, as well as the one for her estate.

He stepped down as her personal conservator in 2019 but remains in charge of her estate, sharing the responsibility with her management team.
