When Britney Spears’ 13-year conservatorship ended last November, her fans were ecstatic.
Sadly, however, things haven’t gone so well for the beloved artist since it ended.
The 40-year-old singer known for her hit song “Baby One More Time” acknowledged in an emotional Instagram post on Monday (August 22) that she cries herself to sleep on a regular basis and there is “no way to fix” her.
“It’s crazy… social media… everybody’s life seems so perfect and when I post things I think most of the time I’ve been utterly and completely embarrassed of my past… and who can forget those documentaries,” she wrote in the post.
Spears, who has since deleted her Instagram account, explained that she utilizes social media in an effort to improve her image in the media, saying: “So yes, I do try and post me looking my best or what it may seem to be the good life… well, the truth is, my spirits are better but I will forever be traumatized by my past experience for life.”
She continued: “There is no way to fix me, my emotions and my sensitivity… therapy, all of it !!! I think I will need some sort of miracle for my emotions.”
“I cry myself to sleep most night… I’m insecure as hell… I don’t know how to have good posture unless I’m on camera and I need to go to a school just to be taught how to freaking walk.”
Britney Spears has been put through a lot lately.
It should come as no surprise that many of her fans flocked to the comments section to offer their support before the post was deleted, with one person saying: “We love you no matter what.”
Another fan lauded her transparency, according to UNILAD, adding that it is “inspiring” to see someone who is strong enough to disclose their difficulties.
Spears also mentions that despite the fact that she has “never had seconds at dinner,” she is beginning to understand what it means to want “more” and is coming to the realization that perhaps wanting more “isn’t so bad.”
In 2008, Britney Spears allowed her father to assume the role of conservator over her, which resulted in the loss of her rights to most aspects of her personal life, including the management of her basic economics, her personal life, her health, and her estate.
Spears was effectively prevented from exercising any form of independence. It was frustrating for many people to watch, especially her biggest fans.
However, in an unexpected turn of events and a good sign for Britney’s health, she took to Twitter on Wednesday (August 24) to announce that she is releasing her first new song in six years with Elton John, who she called “one of the most classic men of our time.”
“Okie dokie … my first song in 6 years,” she wrote. “It’s pretty damn cool that I’m singing with one of the most classic men of our time … Elton John !!!! I’m kinda overwhelmed… it’s a big deal to me !!! I’m meditating more and learning my space is valuable and precious !!!”
It appears that Britney Spears is back on the music scene.
Good for her on opening up about her emotions in an honest way.
