Britney Spears lamented how she is portrayed in the recently released New York Times documentary “Framing Britney Spears,” admitting that she found it embarrassing.
The documentary which explored her life in detail premiered in February and looked at her huge rise in the world of music and her crash that followed.
Prominent in the film was her mental health struggles from the mid-2000s, her treatment at the hands of the tabloid media and the conservatorship that has overseen her finances and personal affairs since 2008.
While the 39-year-old had previously indirectly addressed the series, she has now confessed that she hasn’t actually watched the documentary in full but what she has seen of it left her “embarrassed by the light they put me in”.
She said: “I cried for two weeks,” before adding, “and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!!”.
The Toxic singer released the statement on Instagram alongside a video of the pop star dancing to the Aerosmith song Crazy and tagged singer Steven Tyler.
Britney said: “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 !!! 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!!!!”
She former Mickey Mouse Club member added: “As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people!!!”
After touching on the documentary, she said: “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.”
