  5. Hey Exhale, there's a lot to absorb here so I'll be brief 🙏 I haven't written a formal story in more than a year, but I felt inspired to get my thoughts out about my experience covering Britney's conservatorship since day one. Once I started writing, the words came flowing out. I was a 19-years-old when the conservatorship was first was put into place. In the time since, I got a degree in journalism, worked in marketing, became an entrepreneur, a community leader and now an activist. I'm now 32. I published an article about my experience onto Medium, a self-publishing blogging platform. There's potential my story gets picked up by curators there and shown to thousands of new people (which is important because we want new people to know about what's going on). I filmed a video about writing this story (see above), so there's a lot of content for you to sink your teeth into. Read my article on Medium: Chapter I: You’re gonna have to see through my perspective Exhale, I could really use your support! Check out the video, check out the article, and please engage with both as much as possible. The more attention these items receive, the more they reach new people (gotta love the algorithms). Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the Medium article. I think it's the best thing I've ever written. 🙏 @Blaze @Ember @Fire @Flame @Inferno @Phoenix @Solar Flare @Spark @Twitter Team @Super Moderators

  6. Will.i.am reflected on his time working with Britney Spears after watching The NY Times documentary Framing Britney Spears. "The treatment of women goes way beyond the music industry. It’s society and the lack of true support and lifting up of the female," he said. "Britney has endured some pretty harsh treatment from her own and she’s an amazing person and her heart is pure. "Everyone’s had some downfalls and some choices that they’ve made personally but she’s awesome." He fondly remembers "laughing" and listening to Britney’s "dreams and passion points" when they worked together. "We’ve had success together and she’s like the sweetest person in the world. The sweetest. Couldn’t hurt a fly. An amazing woman, amazing mom." "We’ve all had things that we’ve done in the past and because she’s such a machine, she was a machine to her family. It’s just sad how that force, that bright light, that energy and love she has shared to the world…" "I remember when she was doing X Factor and I wanted to do Scream and Shout with her and people would say the things she would say about her – 'she’s not there, she’s not all the way there' – and then we did Scream and Shout and she was there." Will continued: "There’s this weird cloud around her that doesn’t truly believe in her and when you trust that cloud maybe that’s part of the reason why Britney is the way she is, is because that cloud around her, she trusts the people that are responsible for that cloud." "The person that I saw in the studio, the person that loves music. She loves the hell out of some music, she loves some dance. She loves it. That I love.... If I think about the relationship between a music and a person that keeps them safe and vibration stable – love – that person is Britney Spears. She’s dope. Say what you wanna say, I love Britney."

  8. Breaking news: Britney's loathed business manager, Lou Taylor, has officially resigned. Britney's father, Mr. Spears, attempted to hire a new business manager without giving Britney notice, according to new court docs via Britney Hiatus, but Britney's lawyer/legal advocate, Sam Ingham, rejected this. He is requesting the independent trust firm, Bessemer Trust, handle her business dealings moving forward. The court docs state: TRISTAR SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT GROUP has resigned as Britney's business manager without prior notice to Britney. It goes on to say: "Tristar cannot wait to effectuate this change until the process of putting Bessemer in place as co-conservator is complete..." Mr. Spears tried hiring a man named Michael Kane to serve as Britney's new business manager. Britney was not made aware or asked about this. "There was no opportunity either for Mr. Kane to be interviewed or for alternatives to be considered. There is no indication as to any of the terms of his engagement by James, including his compensation." This is huge.

  12. Hi everybody! Recently I’ve been wanting to do a deep dive and in-depth look at David LaChapelle’s unreleased Make Me video. His video has always fascinated me and like many of us my interest grew even more when more photos from the previously-unused album photoshoot were released. My interest piqued ESPECIALLY when a certain LQ photo from the same shoot leaked. It inspired me to go back and watch the video again now that I have more context with the recently released pictures. This is my personal analysis of the video and what the meaning behind certain things could have been. This post is purely my own speculation and observation and in no way am I stating it as fact. Enjoy! Our video starts off with Britney canoodling with a love interest. Our girl is whisked away by someone from her team to film a highly ***ualized video. Britney wears a barely there outfit while dancers grind on and around her. I find this part of the video to be metaphorical in the sense that Britney’s career is highly ***ualized and always comes first before her personal life ie the love interest. The director calls cut to the video, wrapping up for the day. Britney and her love interest hop into a sports car with Brit driving (do I really need to point out why this part is incredibly ironic?) the two drive out of the sound stage and into the desert. As the two drive through the desert and into the suburbs, Hans Zimmer’s score “Remember” from The Lion King plays. While many assume this to just be placeholder music (considering this video is an unfinished rough cut), I wouldn’t doubt if the choice for this score was entirely intentional. For those who haven’t seen The Lion King or for those who simply need a refresher, during the “Remember” scene Simba is visited by his father’s apparition, who urges him to remember his roots and take back his kingdom that has since been taken over by his cruel uncle and his vicious army of hyenas. In this video, is it possible that Britney is ready to take back something that was taken from her? Britney and her beau arrive at her home which has an eviction posted on the front door, reading, “The tenants Adam and Eve have been found in volition of Eden Resident Conduct Statue. 1.16 and are hereby ordered to vacate the premises immediately. Failure to complete may result in civil penalties up to and including death by flaming sword.” I find this part of the video significant because Eve committed sin and now has to give up her paradise life in the Garden of Eden. When the video first leaked, many, myself included, assumed Britney and her beau ignore the posted message and retire into the house. With new context given to the video through a leaked photo, it is now apparent that the house is Britney’s punishment and the outside world is her own paradise. What was once her own paradise, a place where she can go to enjoy her own privacy and retire from show business is now her very prison. The eviction notice is pasted on her front door, serving as a constant reminder that she is being punished. For those unaware of which leaked photo I’m talking about, it is this one which shows Britney is chained to a house. I assume this picture to be a still from a missing scene from David LaChapelle’s cut of the music video, which has ironically since become the Glory album cover which conveniently removes an otherwise very strong message. When the video first leaked, many assumed the next couple scenes were the product of a messily cut video. While this very well be the case, I’m going to assume these next scenes were intentional: When Britney left the music video shoot, she puts on a large denim jacket, covering up her revealing stage outfit. Britney is still wearing this jacket when she arrives home and when she reads the eviction notice, however when she walks into her prison home she is seen wearing skimpier outfits, the jacket that she used to cover herself with for her own dignity and comfort now missing. The outfits change sporadically, almost like she’s putting on a show with 6 or 7 costume changes. Dancers are all throughout her house, signifying there is a constant show going on around her. Adam and Eve were banished to Earth, where they had to live out their life paying for their punishment. In this case, Britney pays for her punishment where she is constantly at work. The very thing she drove away from is now plaguing her own home. In a small but incredibly impactful scene, we see a leopard is living in the house. When Britney and her beau saw the eviction notice, she gawked and seemed heavily annoyed. She doesn’t, however, seem to bothered by the literal beast roaming around her house. Britney puts out a bowl of food and feeds the beast before she goes upstairs. A TV plays Britney’s video while the beast feeds from the milk Britney gave it. Britney remains on the TV in front of the beast, almost as though it’s watching her. While Britney is upstairs in her workout room, she continues to be surrounded by her dancers. The TV in the room plays a workout ad before the screen blacks out. I interpret this scene two ways, both very similar in message: The ad is the only thing being shown to Britney, her life filled with constant ad placement and potential profit. In one way I took the scene, she chose to turn off the ad. In another, this is the only thing shown to her before the TV turns off, the blank TV signifying isolation and disconnect from the world. While I believe either may be the case, it is fact that Britney chooses to reject the scenario altogether and throw the TV out the window and into the pool. This act seemingly kills her love interest as he was swimming in the stars pool at the time. Despite the apparent death of her love interest, the show must go on. Britney is locked in a cage, completely exposed, only covered by a pair of panties and red body glitter (blood?), performing at the site of the death of her lover. It almost seems like her own mistakes are being monetized and she’s forced to market off her darkest moments and/or being forced to ignore her issues for the sake of performing. In a bizarre twist of events, Britney is now alone in a room with G-Eazy. Britney’s back is turned the entire time and we never see her face. The shot then turns into a POV as we witness the two have ***. We witness this scene with seemingly no sense of control. It’s weird and raunchy, and that seems to be the very intention: to make you uncomfortable. I find the use of never seeing Britney’s face interesting. While her music video was **** and a bit racy, that was all in name of a performance. Here, in her prison, that now seems to be a recurring theme, except it’s now looking more apparent that she doesn’t get to choose when she wants to be **** and when she doesn’t. As a matter of fact, she doesn’t get much choice at all. She just comes home to feed the beast. Once his verse ends, we find Britney at the poolside, breathing life back into her lover through CPR (lol). The two hug and embrace, the lover seemingly forgiving Britney for her mistakes which in turn harmed him; however, we must ask ourselves if Britney really harmed him or if it was her suffocating situation? Regardless, the two escape the house and bulldoze it. Britney and her lover share one last kiss in the destruction of her mortal prison, this time once again wearing the jacket she chose to cover herself up with, only revealing a little bit of the skimpy outfit in this private and liberating moment with her lover. Unseen in the video, but seen in the photoshoot for the recently released vinyl is a photo of Britney with a destroyed car behind her as she sits surrounded by mirrors in the same skimpy outfit from the music video scene. She’s wearing sunglasses, seemingly to protect her vision from the bright reflection of what might be intended to be her punishment: to be surrounded with constant reminders of her mistakes. While we have yet to see David LaChapelle’s cut of the video and more pictures from the shoot (and not ones edited by Team B), I still find that there is tons of meaning packed into this video despite being heavily edited by Britney’s team. Many in this fanbase don’t like this video because of how hyper-***ualized and “raunchy” it is, which I can understand to a degree. I do, however, find that those people are missing the point of the video: Britney’s life is hyper-***ualized and has been since she was 17. I believe the intention of the video was to highlight Britney’s lack of control in her personal and professional life. I believe points of the video to be metaphorical in how her past mistakes have influenced her private life ie her home feeling like a prison, affecting personal and romantic relationships, a dangerous beast whom she has to come home to feed, etc. I hope you enjoyed my analysis of the video and thank you for reading, I know it’s a long post. Please your thoughts and opinions! What are your thoughts on this video? What messages do you take away from it?

  14. Britney Spears not only supports the #FreeBritney movement, but wants her conservatorship case open to the public. Britney severely mistrusts her father Jamie, who is currently conservator of her estate. Her legal advocate Samuel Ingham filed docs requesting a trust company replace Jamie and oversee her fortune instead. Her lawyers also filed docs opposing her dad Jamie's motions to seal parts of her ongoing conservatorship case, TMZ reports, because she wants people to know what's going on. They write: "Britney is fighting her dad's move to appoint a co-conservator of her estate [handling business matters] to a lawyer who was deeply involved in her conservatorship for years. She wants someone independent to take the reins." Britney also doesn't feel the court hearings should be kept a secret as there are no medical issues or sensitive issues with her children to protect. She wants transparency. The lawyer says, "... Britney herself is vehemently opposed to this effort by her father to keep her legal struggle hidden away in the closet as a family secret." The lawyer adds, "Far from being a conspiracy theory or a 'joke' as James [Jamie] reportedly told the media, in large part this scrutiny is a reasonable and even predictable result of James' aggressive use of the sealing procedure over the years to minimize the amount of meaningful information made available to the public." Britney's lawyers also included an article about the Free Britney movement and stated she's trying to get some personal autonomy back in her life. They say Britney "welcomes and appreciates the informed support of her many fans." LINK TO THE FULL DOCS BELOW Link Related:

  15. Lol tmz is in her team's pockets. This is disgusting. How terrible can her illness be??? It seems her conservatorship is behind the cause of any illness. Please! Funny how they only now have something to say when the petition got 100000 signatures but they haven't said a peep before that. **** these people. She can't go on tours and make albums and not have freedom over her life. Justin Bieber and Kanye aren't stuffed in a conservatorship despite being "difficult" with mental illness. Give me a ******* break. I'm literally so mad. But should have seen this coming. At some point we knew they would try to cover things up again.

  19. House Republicans Jim Jordan of Ohio and Matt Gaetz of Florida are urging the House Judiciary Committee to hold a hearing to review whether Americans are trapped unfairly in these types of arrangements. They cite Britney's conservatorship case as an example. The American Civil Liberties Union says that conservatorships should be viewed with skepticism and used as a last resort. Jordan and Gaetz say there are countless Americans trapped in these arrangements with little recourse, unable to manage their own affairs or make decisions about their finances. “The House Committee on the Judiciary is charged with safeguarding the rights affording to Americans by the U.S. Constitution. These rights include having the free will to guide one’s own affairs and the legal autonomy over one’s own finances. When situations suggest the unjust deprivation of those rights by the government, we have an obligation to conduct oversight and explore potential remedies,” the letter states. “In recent years, there has been growing public concern about the use of conservatorships to effectively deprive individuals of personal freedoms at the behest of others through the manipulation of the courts,” the letter, submitted on Mar. 8, continues. “The most striking example is perhaps the case of multi-platinum performing artist Britney Spears,” Gaetz and Jordan write. “The facts and circumstancing giving rise to this arrangement remain in dispute but involve questionable motives and legal tactics by her father and now-conservator, Jamie Spears,” the letter says, later stating that despite the musician’s “pleas,” her father remains a conservator of her estate. “It’s no secret that my client does not want her father as co-conservator, but we recognize that removal is a separate issue,” the singer’s attorney said, addressing the court, at a hearing last month. In the letter, Gaetz writes, “Ms. Spears is not alone…Given the constitutional freedoms at stake and opaqueness of these arrangements, it is incumbent upon our Committee to convene a hearing to examine whether Americans are trapped unjustly in conservatorships.” PLEASE GODNEY MAKE ONE OF THESE THINGS ACTUALLY WORK FOR ONCE IN BRITNEY'S FAVOR

  20. Ooo ****. I knew she would come after you. But one question how can she sue you for reposting an article that you personally as an owner didn't claim it's TRUE? I have every right (personally) to believe everything I want. And I believe Page Six/Ny Post and most and foremost I believe Courtney Love. #CourtneyLoveIStandWithYou #StayStrong.

  26. 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.

  28. 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. You can read the full interview here: https://www.queerty.com/britney-spears-prisoner-samantha-stark-investigates-myth-framing-britney-spears-20210205#.YB27ZH-unqg.twitter Thoughts? Update: David -

  32. I recently caught up with Lisa and here’s what she had to say regarding the conservatorship. Me: Regarding the Britney case what legalities do you feel have been broken? Lisa: There is no question that Miss Spears constitutional rights were violated in February 2008. She absolutely was entitled to be represented by an attorney of her own choice. 100%. She was absolutely entitled to be served with the paperwork that was filed to conserve her. She was absolutely entitled to a fair and impartial judge. she was entitled to cross examine the witnesses that will testify against her having her freedom and property. As we all know now, none of this transpired. I think the calls for a congressional hearing is very important and relevant. I think that pressuring the court to subject itself to an investigation is key. Judge Brenda Penny does not have the strength nor legal chops to take action on her own. Me: Now legally speaking do you think there’s enough evidence to prove the corruption or is this about other things?Also if that’s the case then why do you feel no one has petitioned to end the conservatorship? Is it a legal tactic and based on timing? Lisa: Journalist and now several members Of congress - including AOC - are about to get the proof of the incompetence, cronyism and misogyny that is going on. I spent hundreds of dollars making copies and sending overnight priority mail to the AG Merrick Garland and many others. I have submitted a complaint to the State Bar, an agency under pressure to fix itself. I am planning to go as far as I humanly can to let the world know that truly epically ****ed up this was from Day #1. What they can do: call their members of Congress if they live in the USA , call or write to Merrick Garland if they are outside the US. Let them know the world is watching and it’s not looking too good. Me: My final question for fans is when do you think this chapter will end? Vivian said in her experience that she hasn’t seen a single conservatorship lifted and I do wonder why. Is it possible in the near future in your opinion? Lisa: I predict it ends before summer - the media will continue to pressure politicians...there are advocates for probate court reform in every state and I have been emailing and texting them to support the movement. The BBC will be releasing another documentary. I have been interviewed for NPR...that should be coming out soon. Lots more to come. Wednesday will be huge. I am already being asked for an interview by overseas media. I promise, I am doing all I can to end this stupid unethical **** show of a conservatorship. And the thing about me - I am armed with the truth and the California probate code. I hope this gives you guys hope yourselves for anyone who feels uncertain about this situation.
