American singer Britney Spears revealed that the latest documentary about her life and guardianship arrangement made her cry.
She said she hadn’t seen the movie “Framing Britney Spears” in full, but was bothered by the parts she saw.
“I didn’t watch the documentary, but from what I saw I felt embarrassed to show it to me,” the pop star wrote on Instagram.
Spears, 39, said she “cried for two weeks” after the film aired.
This post is her first direct commentary on the documentary, which focused on her life and her mental health problems.
The post was accompanied by a video clip of the singer dancing and playing the song by the popular Aero Smith band “Majnoun”.
“People saw my life for a long time based on speculation … and this is how they saw it, and judged it,” she said.
“It takes a great deal of strength to trust the world with your true weakness, because I’ve always been doomed, humiliated, and embarrassed by the media, and I still am to this day,” Spears told her 29 million followers.
“As the world continues to spin and life continues, we are still as vulnerable and sensitive as other people,” she added.
She concluded, “I am not here to appear perfect … Perfection is boring. I am here to transmit kindness.”
After watching parts of the documentary, Spears said, “I cried for two weeks … I still cry sometimes. I do what I can about my psychological state, trying to preserve my joy, love and happiness.”
Spears’ life and business have been subject to court-ordered guardianship since 2008 after her tragic life collapsed.
Earlier this month, her attorney formally asked the judge to remove her father, Jimmy, from his role in overseeing her personal affairs.
Attorney Samuel De Engham III told the court earlier that Spears was afraid of her father, and could not return to the scene of life as long as her father was in control of her life.
Spears is requesting that Jodi Montgomery, the temporary personal protector, appointed in 2019, remain her permanent sponsor.
Legal documents also stipulate that the singer, whose songs topped sales, reserves the right to request the termination of protection against her.
