  1. New photos of Britney Spears from the earlier days just hit the Internet. They were submitted to "Framing Britney Spears" but ultimately left on the cutting room floor... until now. Credit: BritneyOnline
  2. If they could interview some actual mental health law/human rights attorneys to comment on the legality of the conservatorship, instead of probate/trust attorneys who are involved and whose legal expertise begins and ends at forwarding papers to an accountant, that would be nice.
  3. Washington Post made an article about the documentary but it is also a broader story and context. The comment section under the Facebook post about the article is very kind, and it also has like 5x more comments than their other posts. Don't know if it has been already posted, haven't found anything but if it were, I'm sorry, please delete the thread Decided to post the full article, since I have the subscription. Here is the link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/arts-entertainment/2021/02/05/framing-britney-spears-documentary/ Here is the full article: Britney Spears and the trauma of being young, female and famous in the ’90s It’s become pretty trendy, re-litigating the headline controversies of the late ’90s and early 2000s. Netflix’s “The Crown” recently revisited the royal English intrigue of Prince Charles and Princess Diana; ESPN’s “The Last Dance” told the behind-the-scenes story of the other most famous dynasty of the time, the Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls. Slate’s “Slow Burn” podcast has reexamined the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton and the feud between Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.; the popular history-retold podcast “You’re Wrong About” has lately covered the O.J. Simpson trial, the D.C. sniper attacks and the Y2K panic. And why not? It’s clear there’s an appetite among the key 18-to-34 demographic to reexamine as adults what they remember absorbing in fragments during childhood. “Framing Britney Spears,” the sixth installment of FX and Hulu’s “The New York Times Presents” series of stand-alone documentaries, premieres Feb. 5 and aims to untangle for the casual pop-culture consumer the convoluted legal battles facing pop superstar Britney Spears. To the extent possible, director Samantha Stark reports out how Spears, seemingly capable and thus an unlikely candidate for a conservatorship, wound up under the long-term supervision of her father, Jamie Spears. The documentary only gets as close to Spears as any other reporting project in the past decade — which is to say, not very close. The list of people who are revealed to have declined to speak to the Times includes both of Spears’s parents, her sister and brother, her ex-husband Kevin Federline and a former adviser. Then, an epilogue reveals that it’s unclear whether Spears herself received the requests for her participation. Consequently, much of what’s in it has been known to devoted fans and interested followers for a long time: The conservatorship has historically given Spears’s father significant control over her daily life and her money, seems suspect to many outsiders, and has only recently been updated by a judge to put a bank in charge of Spears’s finances rather than her father. In 2019, Jamie stepped away from his role supervising Britney’s day-to-day life, but only temporarily; a professional conservator has acted in his stead. Footage filmed by a fan shows a man storming the stage as Britney Spears performed at a Las Vegas show in August 2017. (Reuters) But the strength of “Framing Britney Spears” isn’t in its new revelations; it’s in its thoughtful hindsight, which positions it squarely within that “1990s, reevaluated” genre. The documentary wisely revisits Spears’s breakneck-speed ascent beginning in 1998, quietly making the case that fame in that era — particularly for young women — was traumatizing, and that the booming tabloid industry of the time played a role in Spears’s current predicament that shouldn’t be overlooked. As Times critic at large Wesley Morris points out in the episode, Spears rose to fame during the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal, when young women’s ***ual desires were being discussed in public at once frankly, pruriently and scornfully. As a result, little daylight existed between fame as a young, attractive woman with any hint of a *** life and what we now know as public shaming. The media — both the tabloids and more credible, high-profile outlets — hounded women like Spears for disturbingly intimate details of their lives, then belittled and even villainized them for those very details. To illustrate just how little of Spears’s private life remained private, Stark includes footage from the early 2000s of Spears being asked, before a room full of reporters, whether she’s a virgin; she confirms in a soft voice that she’s waiting until marriage. Moments later, a voice-over plays of Justin Timberlake, Spears’s ex-boyfriend, telling a radio host he slept with Spears. A Details cover depicting Timberlake and congratulating him for “getting into Britney’s pants” appears on-screen. Even acclaimed TV journalists subject her to denigrating lines of questioning about her personal life. In an interview clip, ABC’s Diane Sawyer quotes the first lady of Maryland as saying she wishes she could “shoot Britney Spears” for being a poor role model. When Spears responds in horror, Sawyer appears to defend the statement: “Because of the example for kids, and how hard it is to be a parent.” After Spears was pictured driving away from aggressive paparazzi with her son in her lap in 2004, NBC’s Matt Lauer asks her to respond to accusations that she’s a bad mother for not using a car seat. Spears fights to hold it together before openly weeping in both interviews. What “Framing Britney Spears” evokes so viscerally is the claustrophobia and frustration of being Britney Spears. As a young pop superstar, Spears is seen grinning and bearing it while photographers crowd around her car at a drive-through; later, she’s seen covering her face from camera flashes while she exits a gas station, while she hurries through a parking lot, while she dines in a restaurant. “I’m scared. I’m scared,” she repeats as she’s hustled through a gaggle of paparazzi gathered outside a store. So by the time the infamous 2007 footage of Spears — wild-eyed and defiantly bald, fresh off a confrontation with Federline over custody of their two sons — attacking a paparazzo’s SUV with an umbrella appears, what’s newly surprising about this well-trod story line is that this is the first car door Spears has dented in nine years of fame. “That night was not a good night for her. And it was not a good night for us,” the paparazzo whose car Spears damaged tells Stark. Then he changes his tune: “But it was a good night for us, because it was a money shot.” The episode makes clear that Spears was unwell at the time; it’s said that her mother believed she was suffering from postpartum depression during her 2006 divorce and the subsequent custody battle. But it also forces the viewer to consider it head-on: If this were your life, wouldn’t you act out, too? The documentary then cuts to Spears’s hospitalization and involuntary psychiatric evaluation following a dispute with Federline in early 2008, which led to the then-temporary conservatorship that Spears’s father still holds over her today. It’s come to light in recent years just how damaging the late ‘90s and 2000s were for young women in the spotlight. Other female celebrities whose names similarly became punchlines back then have re-emerged, revealed themselves to be far more thoughtful and vulnerable than those jokes years ago implied, and addressed the psychological toll those years of tabloid celebrity took. Lewinsky, for example, gave a TED Talk in 2015. After disarming one-liners about berets and being “the only person over 40 who does not want to be 22 again,” Lewinsky revealed that in the months when the Clinton impeachment trial put her in the news every day, her mother made her shower with the bathroom door open, for fear she would harm herself while she had the privacy. Jessica Simpson’s 2020 memoir, “Open Book,” detailed how the tabloid frenzy that erupted when she wore a pair of high-waisted, then-uncool “mom jeans” in 2009 exacerbated an existing diet-pill habit. And in last year’s “This Is Paris,” the YouTube documentary about Paris Hilton, Hilton’s voice — her real voice, deeper and more mature than the one you remember — wavers as she recalls 2003, when *** tapes filmed by her ex-boyfriend were released online. “That was my first real relationship,” she says. “That was a private moment of a teenage girl not in the right head space. To have everyone watching it, laughing, like it’s something funny …” Hilton’s voice trails off. A clip of David Letterman rolls: “Have you seen ’em?” he asks a studio audience. He grins. “I’ve seen ’em.” Moments later, the camera cuts to Hilton bugging her own home, installing hidden cameras before she lets a new boyfriend spend time there alone. Stark’s “Framing Britney Spears” provides a similar glimpse at the human, warped and tortured but ultimately resilient, inside the celebrity. In light of recent revelations like Hilton’s, Simpson’s and Lewinsky’s, it seems newly remarkable that Spears has not just lived to tell the tale but remained, apparently voluntarily, visible in the public eye. The tragedy, of course, is that Spears still can’t tell that tale herself.
  4. I made a video about Britney that covers a little bit about the conservatorship, Framing Britney, FreeBritney and more. It's a brief video to get others interested in learning more about Britney. What do you guys think?
  5. I can't believe we're a music forum and we haven't discussed this! (I swear I searched for it before creating this thread) "The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story" is an American documentary film produced by Lance Bass (*NSYNC) that explores the career and legacy of record producer and convicted criminal Lou Pearlman. It includes interviews with Lance Bass, JC Chasez (*NSYNC), Chris Kirkpatrick (*NSYNC), AJ McLean (BSB), Aaron Carter, Ashley Parker Angel (O-Town), and Justin Timberlake's mother, among others. Premiere date: March 13, 2019 I just watched it and I'm in shock because I followed the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC as a teenager and I had NO IDEA that all of this was going on behind the scenes... Also, this makes Britney's conservatorship nothing but a more sophisticated and apparently "legal" way of taking financial advantage of another accomplished artist. PS: Now the puppets scene in *NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye" video makes much more sense now: PS2: Aaron Carter omg..... I can see that Lance added him in there so there's another opinion on Lou Pearlman and the documentary doesn't seem biased, but the evidence against Pearlman is irrefutable and Aaron is clearly not well so I feel like that was kind of shady (and even irresponsable) from Lance as a producer... What do you guys think about all of this?
  6. Check out the newly released Paris Hilton documentary. It got huge buzz at Cannes Film Festival. Academy Award nomination is coming. Loves it Insightful testimonials from Kyle Richards, Nicky Hilton and Kim Kardashian. Kim praises Hilton as being the one that "started the paparazzi following your every move" and followed with saying she wouldn't "be here today if [Paris] hadn't started out in the reality world and her introducing me to the world".
  7. Guys since few days on Amazon Prime there is a new documentary regarding Michael Jackson and reality behind allegations, it mainly focus on 1993 cases and touches about 2005 trial and James/Wade. It is great just facts and it is amazing that it doesn't try to manipulate your feelings as Leaving Neverland. It was number 1 documentary on Amazon Prime. Highly recommend! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0887TPJ6Q/ref=cm_cr_arp_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8 And just take a look at one of the comments: Follow The Trial, Read The Court Transcripts, View The FBI Files No More Media Propaganda Square One shows you how bad actors with the media extorted and manipulated the world using false accusations with Michael Jackson as the poster boy for p*******a. Michael Jackson stories sells dead or alive and till today, it will be what the media tells you even when they know it is false because the dead cannot be defamed because they cannot speak. Starting with the 1993 Michael Jackson Allegations, Square One gives incredible evidence with vivid timelines and corroborated details of how Michael Jackson became and continues to be a victim of false allegations, criminal injustice and media propaganda. Looking at the evidence Square One presents, one will be able to observe the events and situations leading to the years of dogged accusations while understanding the context of what and why it happened. The cast of characters are quite interesting on their own and play a central role in the framing and eventual media lynching of Michael Jackson. Experience how some in the Chandler family, the media and NAMBLA supporter Victor Gutierrez create a conspiracy that will eventually become the prelude to the character assassination of MJ. The main stream media here demonstrates how it has never been for the people. They were not made to tell the truth but with their confirmation bias for over 25 years, they influenced how the world understood and almost accepted the unproven and false allegations. They were mostly elitist, for profit, and a propaganda machine for the real underground criminals in Hollywood. What they did with Michael Jackson is a journey that will frustrate you. Square One takes you through the light and darkness where you will see how these forces come together to destroy truth and manipulate history. How can we as a society be satisfied and confident believing prejudiced articles and false accusations over an American judicial system, the FBI, medical examiners, private investigators, child services, SBPD, LAPD and even building permits? Everyone needs to stop judging and condemning based on stories made to manipulate your emotions and feelings. Square One shows you how truth should never be a multiple choice for us to pick and choose what plays best with our emotions and opinions. Danny Wu has done a great service to the world and now HIStory can be told and retold so that the lie will never become the truth.
  8. Hi everyone! My name is Sam & I'm a YouTuber from London! I've made a documentary called 'An Icon Ruined By Fame' about Britney and how we as a society responded to her very public breakdown and how we continue to respond to her alleged battles today. I'm super proud of it. The response so far has been incredible. If you want to give it a watch - then please do - the link is below. If not, then no worries! Hope everyone is having a great day! Sam
  9. We all know that badgalriri aka Rihanna decided to exchange music for make-up and we probably never get that new album 😅 , however, there is one more thing Rihanna owes us. There was a lot of rumours that Rihanna was preparing movie about herself. According to some news, her team was collecting materials for two years. I am personally from Prague and I also know they were shooting in my city while she was touring here with ANTI tour. She was riding wildly in historical tram through Prague center and they were recording it (nobody beside tourists do it - google it 😅 )The famous paparazzi from New York city Cesar (247paps) says in his podcast "The Beyond Celebrity Show" that Rihanna is actually planning to release Netflix documentary (Miss Barbadosa?) which gonna be devided in few episodes. My question is when do you think we could get something from Riri? I belive this is perfect time while people are at home. It could get her such great ratings so why the hell is she waitting?
  10. Hello everyone, I know this is not a forum about people in trouble but I thhink I can feel better after posting this. So I have this hard time in my life where I let bad people, I struggle with drug addiction and lost the one I love. But I Watch this again and I start to have hope again. Hope Britney can get this hope again with all the #freebritney and be happy again
  11. Hey All, Was wondering if any of you knew much about the Stages documentary that was released as part of a special edition with the book and birthday poster? I just received a copy for my birthday that is numbered 10 out of 21 on a sticker with Washington, DC to commemorate her tour. This is supposedly a limited edition and is said to be hand signed by Britney herself. There is a signature on a Stages sticker on the inside cover of the book. It is rumored that Britney signed 21 copies of this book to celebrate her 21st birthday but when I try to find any documentation on it, I can't find anything to document that she released a signed copy. I am planning on trying to have it authenticated by a company but thought that I would ask the experts on here first. The only thing that I have found similar to what I am referring to is a history of other numbered editions being sold online. Any information would be great. I would include pictures but I cant figure out how ;-/
  12. Since the last documentary we got was I Am Britney Jean which was 2 years ago (2014), would you like a new Britney documentary? It's always very interesting to see what she's like at work and behind the scenes! Please vote and share some of your thoughts if you have any!
