Britney Tells Off the Haters and Quits Performing
| LAST UPDATE 07/18/2021
Britney is done giving us a piece of her - at least while it's not on the singer's terms. Our Princess of Pop took to the Gram on July 17th to say she's finished performing and to tell off the haters and "righteous" loved ones who previously didn't support her. Here are all of the details.
The latest round of conservatorship-related posts from Brit calls out those closest to her for "saving face" by speaking out now. And yes, fans suspect Spears is referring to sister Jamie Lynn. "There's nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support," the Toxic singer wrote.
"Did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME !!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE," the candid post continued. "Did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again ... NO ... Please stop with the righteous approach when you're so far from righteous it's not even funny." Tell 'em, girl! In case you missed it, Jamie Lynn previously broke her silence on the conservatorship battle, claiming she's supported and loved Brit this whole time behind the scenes.
And Brit's two-faced loved ones weren't the only ones who took a hit from the Baby One More Time singer. (See what we did there?) Spears also had a message for those people hating on her dancing videos on Insta - and it's related to the fact that she's refusing to dance on stage in the near future. "I'm not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think," the 39-year-old expressed.
"I've done that for the past 13 years," she added. "I'd much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas... And no I'm not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years and begging to put my new music in my show for MY fans ... so I quit !!!!"
"I don't like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes," Spears continued in the strongly worded message. "My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams." Keep on speaking your truth, Brit. We'll be here to support you whether you're dancing at home or killing it on stage.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Princess of Pop and her ongoing conservatorship battle.
