  2. Songwriter Claude Kelly, who's worked with Britney Spears on 2008's Circus, says she should not be treated like a toddler. “She’s 39 and she’s been doing this a long time, it doesn’t make sense that she’s being handled like a toddler who has no rights.” He adds, “there are hundreds of other celebrities that have had pretty tough times like public breakdowns, public divorces or embarrassments and they haven’t needed to lose all of their rights.” The situation “brings up a bigger issue of human rights and it doesn’t make sense to remove the right for people to live the way they want to live.” He added, “If that’s the case then we should all be worried because we are all going to **** up, fall short and make mistakes. God forbid that someone can come in, whether it’s your father or your mother, your husband or your wife or whatever, and decide, “You no longer have the right to decide how you live your life.” Claude says he recorded several demos with her which are among “thousands” of unreleased tracks she made. "Anyone is capable of putting out a great new body of work from her at any time. We’re talking about a mega star.“She’s not a has-been. She’s a genius at it and you can never, ever, ever count out a brilliant musician like that. She’s always a hit away.” Full article here.

  3. Yesterday, Samantha Stark gave an interview in which she shared a new story provided by Felicia that didn't get the cut: One time this 14-year-old boy named David came in—this was during her Vegas residency—he wrote Britney this letter that he was struggling because he was gay and having mental health issues. He had attempted suicide. He expressed his love for her in this message, that as a kid, he had a lunchbox with her on it. And none of the kids would eat with him, so he would pretend to eat with Britney. In this letter, he wrote that her message made him want to live. Beautiful. Felicia said that he gave her the letter and left. Britney read it and started crying and sent Felicia to get his address. Then Britney wrote him a letter back, and proceeded to write him every year. And she gave him tickets to come back. He said that he came back for the meet & greet, and said “If no one else ever says they’re proud of you, know that I’m proud of you.” That’s sweet. And this was in Vegas when she’d been under conservatorship. So it’s confusing to hear these cognisant, emotional stories about how she’s helping another person. And then she’s in this system designed for people who don’t know how to act in their own best interests. I think she’s made a really strong connection in a way that’s different from Gaga or Madonna. It’s a you got so judged. You’re so vulnerable. It’s more of a camaraderie.

  4. This is going to blow up. So, is it possible he's been quiet so long out of respect for Britney? I doubt he'd post that without her approval.

  6. It's weird. Her residency grossed ~$35 million per year with very minimal budget for mega pop-star Her tour grosses $4.5 million in 3 shows in London, 7 years after she last visited there, it's not even that far off from peaking pop star Her 28 licensed fragrances have reportedly grossed over $1.5 BILLION in first 4 years in 2009 (!) and Daily Express still hinted that they sell over 20 million copies per year in 2013 which would be ~380,000,000 dollars per year. It's rumored that celebrities make 5-10% of the sales. That would still be 19-38 million per year from fragrances alone. She still has ~20 million listeners per month (one "listener" can stream multiple songs) in spotify making her 151th most streamed artists currently, despite the fact that her last truly mainstream era was in 2011. Most of her 90s and 00s peers who seemingly have "better" net worth have only like 1-15 million listeners per month She was the highest paid musician of 2012 with 58 million It was reported that she only spends around $400,000 per year for "living expenses" and $70,000 for traveling in 2019 I just want to know...

  13. This is why yall need to stop putting all the emphasis on Jamie. He is not the mastermind behind this. The lawyers/Lou are running the show and Jamie is too dumb too realize he's a pawn. They are going to defend Jamie until they can't and then they will push him out and keep the conservatorship going. Ask yourself why sam Ingham hasnt done much for Britney in the last 12 years

  14. I don't understand this fan base at times. This man was involved, and a heavy player, in ruining Britney's life. He took advantage of her during her darkest days. Why give the man attention? Isn't it obvious that is what he craves? There are countless people who have restraining orders against him - that's no coincidence. He is a legit threat and danger to Britney, and if she does get out of this conservatorship I hope to God she gets a lifetime restraining order against him.

  17. Los Angeles magazine interviewed the Framing Britney Spears director. Good read. Why did you want to explore Britney Spears for a documentary? [New York Times senior editor] Liz Day pitched it. Originally, it was before all these court filings started coming out, so when we originally pitched it, there hadn’t been any public record indications that Britney wanted anything changed with the conservatorship. We didn’t think there was going to be much change on that front, so we actually began looking at the media coverage that had happened about her with the post-#MeToo lens and realizing how much of the media coverage was so misogynistic in a way that feels like it wouldn’t fly today. And then it also asks these questions, like why did nobody bring up anything when these late-night hosts are making fun of her, her ***uality as a teenager, like why didn’t we as a society say don’t do that? I was also really interested in these two images that have traveled with Britney her whole life. One is of her shaving her head and one is brandishing this umbrella, and it feels like it’s in everyone’s subconscious. I wanted to know what was outside the frame of those still images. As we started filming, these court filings started coming out where Britney is indicating that she wants things in the conservatorship to change, which you can’t underestimate how groundbreaking that was. That really made us want to dig into conservatorship law and see what is legal and why. You secured an interview with Felicia Culotta, her longtime assistant/chaperone. What is tough to get her to agree to appear in the film? It was really hard to get anyone to talk at all at first. There’s been this cone of silence around Britney for so many years that it feels like no one wants to be the first person to talk. We had a spreadsheet of hundreds of people with anyone we could think of and we sent requests and called people. A lot of people talked to us off the record, but it was hard to get people to go on the record and on camera with their face. We have an all-female crew doing this. We wrote out our whole pitch, and wanted to reassess things and correct a lot of misinformation about her out there. We wanted to find a female record executive to talk about her early career and we found Kim Kaiman, who is in the piece. She was really surprised that we reached out to her because people don’t really ask her for interviews about this. We talked to her a lot and she reached out to Felicia for us and that’s how we got it. It was several phone conversations and Felicia was impressed that we were going to go out to Mississippi to interview her in person and she showed us around her town and it gave us more of a sense of what Britney’s life was like growing up. Speaking to a female record executive as opposed to a male, how do you think that will change people’s perception of Britney? What [Kaiman] said and what was corroborated by several other people was how much control Britney had over the creation of her image. The point that kept being made was that teenagers have ***uality. The reason Britney was so successful was that she captured the dichotomy of what it’s like to be a teenage girl so well because she had ***uality and wanting to be an adult woman, and she also had a kid in her and that’s true about many teenagers. She got a lot of shame for that and there were a lot of people thinking she’s being ***ualized, she doesn’t know what she’s doing, this is disgusting, she’s a child and I think that was older people doing that, not the millions of tweens and teens who felt like something about her really spoke to them. We discovered in the piece this kind of strength and control she has over her body and her space as a young person that I think is one of the big reasons she is successful. Her target audience was 12- and 13-year-olds. Kim marketed her as your friend who you idolize but at the end of the day, she has the same hopes and dreams you do. It was surprising to me because when I was interviewing a lot of these Free Britney people, and the vast majority of them were in their late 20s, early 30s, almost all of them. And it’s the same people who Kim marketed Britney toward are now standing outside the courthouse protesting. That was a revelation for me because it worked so well because they really responded to seeing her as this friend they looked up to. And now years later, seeing your friend who you looked up to in a situation where it’s unclear whether she’s happy or not, they’re still, like, this is my friend I idolize. A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE FREE BRITNEY MOVEMENT ARE ASKING LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS THAT WE SHOULD ALL ASK ABOUT THE CONSERVATORSHIP SYSTEM. What did you think of the Free Britney fans? A lot of people write them off as conspiracy theorists. That’s a really easy thing to do. I was surprised at how in-depth and investigative they were going, and there are some lawyers who are a part of this group and some people who have witnessed conservatorship abuse because there is abuse that happens in the conservatorship system. And a lot of them are asking legitimate questions that we should all ask about the conservatorship system. Where are there conflicts of interest? Where are there loopholes? We don’t know why Britney is in one, but for example, a lot of people think it has something to do with living with a mental illness. Should somebody living with a mental illness be subject to a conservatorship is a legitimate question to ask. It’s important not to write them off as conspiracy theorists. Of course we’re vetting everything they say and we’re not including anything that isn’t true. Was there anything you didn’t include that you wish made it in the documentary? This could be a six-hour series. I heard a lot of these incredible stories from fans who were gay boys growing up with her and this idea that she was criticized for her ***uality from a young age and was rebellious throughout her career after that. A lot of the loudest voices in the Free Britney movement are gay men who were boys when she was becoming popular. I found that very moving. What are you hoping this documentary will accomplish? I hope it gives viewers a more accurate and clear perspective on who Britney is and who she was. I hope it makes everyone question our own complicity in the awful things that were done to her by us, by the consumers. The reason Us Weekly was able to pay these paparazzi so much money was because people were buying the magazines. At one point Wesley Morris, one of the writers in our film, says, “No one was helping her because there was too much money to be made off her suffering,” and I think we show that in a new way. I also hope people come away with a look at the conservatorship system and think about the questions that it raises as systemic issues are there.

  21. Britney Spears' cousin Alli Sims says she hasn't spoken with Britney since Jamie threatened her more than a decade ago. She recalls in January 2008, Jamie threatened her with her life if she had contact with Britney. “He 100 percent was threatening me with my life,” she said. “I didn’t put it past him, so I didn’t answer" her calls again. “Do I miss her as a person and think about her all the time? Yes,” she said. “She’s all over the place still. You can’t help but think about her every day.” Alli said Britney would sometimes reach out to her using random people’s phones when hers was taken away to ask for help. “The situation had become way over my head at that point and her dad and other people were involved,” she said. “I really do believe (Jamie) would have done something if I didn't remove myself from the situation,” Sims said. Alli added that she carries “a lot of guilt” for not answering Britney's calls. “I can't imagine how alone she felt,” she said. “When I think about how long she has had to endure this and it being 13 years, it just makes me so sad for her. I really do hope one day she's able to tell her story if that's what she wants to do. If she does, get ready because there's more to that story than I'm sure anybody could ever imagine.” Source

  22. This documentary really has to focus on the topics the other didn’t. I feel like the Hulu doc was the introduction and this will be the iceberg that breaks this situation on an even higher level than now. Most people have Netflix like FB. This is perfect.

  23. Madonna doesn’t actually care about her, she just used Britney for attention....Madonna has a habit of that. Also Christina probably wants her to stay not working cause lord knows as soon as she makes a comeback what little relevancy Christina has will be overshadowed/disappear. We probably won’t ever see Gaga, Beyoncé, Dua say anything about it either because they see Britney as a threat.

  24. Kim appeared on 'This Morning' the UK's biggest daytime talkshow! Britney Spears' former manager Kim Kaiman has insisted the singer doesn't need a conservatorship as she weighed in on the legal battle surrounding the subject. Kim, 51, appeared on Thursday's episode of This Morning to discuss the controversial documentary Framing Britney Spears, which follows her meteoric rise to stardom. The documentary also focuses on 39-year-old Britney's conservatorship battle with her father Jamie Spears - which Kim insisted she doesn't need as a 'grown woman'. When quizzed on whether Britney 'needs' to be under a conservatorship, Kim said: 'Absolutely not I think at this point she's a 39 year old woman she's not a child...' Kim admitted she does not believe he is the best person for the role, and said: 'In fact when you talk about a conservatorship she doesn't need a conservator what she needs is a good business manager, which Jamie Spears isn't at all...' The former Jive executive, who appears in the new documentary as an interviewee, also discussed the comments she made on the programme about Jamie allegedly saying his daughter was going to be 'so rich she'd buy him a boat'. During her appearance on Framing Britney Spears, Kim said: 'The only thing Jamie ever said to me was: "My daughter is going to be so rich she’s going to buy me a boat," That's all I’m gonna say about Jamie.' She also said that it was Britney's mother Lynn who 'supported' her at this time. Touching on the comment during her This Morning interview, Kim said: 'When he said that this was Britney's first headline tour and this was a long ways away from her having a family and being hounded by the paparazzi. Offering her opinion on the tone of his comment, she said: 'It was before she got famous the way it was said to me wasn't in a supportive way, that is not the tone in which it was said to me, I can't say it was a positive thing he said. 'It was not a positive thing, and frankly he wasn't involved in the building of her career. To have him say that shows he was only focused on how much money she'd make him.' Following the release of the documentary, Britney's boyfriend Sam Asghari has called her father a 'total d***' in an impassioned post online. Kim confessed she thinks that the comment was made an in an 'emotional moment', but otherwise believes Sam to be a 'positive force' in the star's life. She said: 'I've never met Sam but it was probably said in a very emotional moment, but all I can say based on what I see is he is a very positive force in her life, she looks absolutely beautiful and healthy, I've noticed from her Instagram she's been very positive and very forward thinking this is the Britney who is always been there. Kim added: 'She's suffered great tragedy a lot of arrows from not only the paparazzi, the breakdown of her marriage and not being able to see her children, any woman who has children and not being able to see them, wouldn't you have stress wouldn't you have a breakdown?' Britney has also appeared to break her silence following the release of the insight into her life, and insisted she is taking time out to enjoy a 'normal life'. Speaking on Britney's statement, Kim said: 'I think that statement right then and there just proves it she is taking time to have a normal life this isn't something she shad since she was nine years old. 'When she signed onto the company when I met her she'd experienced Star Search, The Mickey Mouse Club, she'd been on an off Broadway musicals, it's almost like the story of Michael Jackson, her childhood wasn't like a normal person... 'She's worked for it at the very least, let her reap the rewards of the way she has been doing this.'

  26. I don't understand the logic of Larry telling her not to speak, like what would've she said if she was upset? I think Britney is more professional than that. And we could see it when she was trying to greet the fans and sign their stuff (until that guy rushed her to the car), she didn't look super happy, but was still making an effort for the fans.

  30. OMG If this is in fact confirmed, this is going to be huge. Hopefully this time around, they can finally talk about her legacy some more, her brilliance as a pop tycoon, her artistry / talent, material that her record label shelved, and her ultimate diligence as one of, if not, the hardest working entertainer of her time. People NEED to be reminded why the public fell in love and were so infatuated with her in the first place. Not to mention, how other aspiring artists built literal careers off of Britney's name (Avril, Pink, Christina, Jessica, Mandy, that whole anti-Britney movement, etc.). Topping the Forbes 100 List at literally just age 20. Her lucrative business deals and work schedule. She put in that work nobody else was willing to do and I'm really hoping there will be a good documentary, for once, that will ultimately transform the public's perception on many of these topics. It's important for the general public to be aware of what Britney's legacy, superstardom and meteoric rise meant for the culture and how it really was an unprecedented phenomenon that reached immeasurable heights and launched a pop renaissance, especially during a time when rock, grunge, hip-hop, alt-rock soloists and pop groups were dominating. Arguably the greatest story of a public figure in pop culture from the last 25 years. Please Netflix, please do our girl justice. We're rooting for you.
