Britney Spears responds for the first time to the New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears.
Britney Spears has finally reacted specifically to the documentary television film Framing Britney Spears.
The New York Times feature debuted in February this year, detailing Britney’s media harassment as well as claims that her conservatorship has been too stringent.
The film questioned whether the guardianship executors, namely her father Jamie Spears, placed financial interests ahead of the singer’s health. Jamie Spears replied by stating that he performed his duties diligently and appropriately.
Britney Spears breaks her silence on the 'Framing Britney Spears' documentary about her:

The Born to Make You Happy hitmaker had tended to react obliquely to the documentary on social media at the time of its premiere, but she finally expressed her opinions directly on Instagram on 30th March.
Criticizing the creators, Spears wrote:
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 ’til this day.
The 39-year-old continued,
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.
Although Framing Britney Spears received generally positive reviews, there have been concerns that it omitted essential background and even individuals involved in Britney’s court cases.
The BBC, meanwhile, has confirmed preparations to investigate the conservatorship in its own film documentary, which will broadcast this spring and will include BAFTA-winning journalist Mobeen Azhar visiting Britney’s home in Louisiana and her present residence in Los Angeles.
Netflix is also joining the fray with a crime-feel movie from How to Fix a Drug Scandal documentary filmmaker Erin Lee Carr.
