Ever since the Framing Britney Spears documentary amplified public concerns over the pop star’s highly litigated conservatorship, the pop star has been trying to assure her fans that she’s “totally fine.”
Despite multiple written posts to that effect on social media, Spears took to Instagram on April 16 to address her followers in a video answering fan questions. While Spears says the top inquiry she receives is about whether or not she gets dizzy while spinning (yes) and the meaning behind a red refrigerator she posted on her grid (she thought it was cool), the “Lucky” singer also responded to those who have asked if she’s okay.
“Yes, I’m totally fine. I’m extremely happy, I have a beautiful home, beautiful children,” Spears said. “I’m taking a break right now because I’m enjoying myself.” The pop star shares two sons, 15-year-old Sean Preston and 14-year-old Jayden James, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
While Spears recently posted that she was “flattered” by the support she’s received since the debut of the New York Times documentary in early February, she previously expressed that she felt “embarrassed” by the way she was portrayed.
“My life has always been very speculated…watched…and judged really my whole life !!! For my sanity I need to dance to @iamstevent every night of my life 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 to feel wild and human and alive !!! I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people 😳😳😳 !!!” she captioned an Instagram video of herself dancing on March 30. “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 till this day 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 !!!!”
“As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people !!! I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in,” Spears continued. “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 ✨🙏🏼 ☀️ !!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I’m not here to be perfect…perfect is boring…I’m here to pass on kindness 💋💋💋 !!!!”
