Britney Spears thinks it’s “toxic” that she’s been the subject of several documentaries and TV specials without her permission.

The singer took to Instagram on Saturday and shared a lengthy post in which she criticized producers for choosing to make plans about her life.

The 40-year-old’s career and guardianship battle was specifically explored in two documentaries that were made available for streaming in 2021 – Hulu’s “Framing Britney Spears” and Netflix’s “Britney Vs. Spears.” The interpreter of “Baby One More Time” did not participate in either film.

“Come on seriously, is it honestly legal to do so many documentaries about someone without their blessing at all??!” Spears wrote in her since-deleted post captured by TMZ. “Seriously, think about it…I’ve never seen so many documentaries made about one person…Will Smith, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez. what matters – dig up so much negative footage and do hour-long specials affirming that it “helps” me REALLY??? It was the most insulting thing I have ever seen in my life and everyone I spoke to said that was the reason why the guardianship had ended… REALLY???

“I just want to know how all these people are saying it’s helped me when I feel with just my mouth and my WORD and what I said in my testimony to the judge,” Spears continued. “THAT says it all…that would be ENOUGH. But not in America!! Everyone jumps on board with these heartbreaking documentaries and forgets about 13 years of my tutelage…..catching up on some of my past, they literally have no remorse at all. They’ve always treated me like that, literally that’s exactly what my family did to me… It’s so insulting it’s not even funny. one thing and only one thing for me – a tyrant.”

Both films examined the circumstances that led to the creation of conservatorship in 2008. This brought greater attention to her case and helped spark the #FreeBritney movement of fans who wanted to see her freed and take control of his life. Some of these protesters were interviewed in the Hulu film.

This isn’t the first time Spears has spoken about being the subject of documentaries without her involvement.

“Damn!!!! 2021 is definitely way better than 2020 but I had no idea it was going to be like this!!!!” she has already written on Instagram. “So many documentaries about me this year with other people about my life…what can I say…I’m so flattered!!!!” Spears continued. “These documentaries are so hypocritical…they criticize the media and then do the same?????”

The star acknowledged she’s been through “some pretty tough times” in her life, but insisted she’s “been through some waaaayyyy more amazing times”.

“Why highlight the most negative and traumatic times of my life ever????” she added. “I mean SHIT.”
