WASHINGTON — Britney Spears is staying firm on her decision of never performing again until her father is handling the conservatorship of her estate. The singer also replied to those criticizing her social media dance videos.
Taking to her Instagram handle, Spears just laid her terms quite clearly (again) with a warning shot to impatient haters.
As per the reports, a few social media users have seen to be got under her skin over the dance videos she has been posting in recent years, which she often shoots in her living room. To the folks in her comments clamoring to see her do that in a show, she told them to shove it.
“For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos … look, I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think!! I’ve done that for the past 13 years …(sic),” said Spears in an Instagram post.
The singer had earlier announced her decision of not performing again until her father, Jamie Spears handles her estate as a conservator. Now, with this post, she has doubled down the decision by reminding her followers that she will stay firm on her decision.
She said that while she performed in Vegas, the people running her conservatorship controlled just about every aspect of it. From her wardrobe, makeup, dance moves, and song selection, the Grammy-winning singer seems to take issue with, as she suggests those were remixes as opposed to her original songs (old and new) in their pure form.
Spears also took a shot at her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears.
“I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes!!!!! My so-called support system hurt me deeply!!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams …(sic),” she said.
As per the reports, Spears is referring to a handful of times when her sister has worked “Oops” into some of her original songs for smaller shows — but more specifically, it was when Lynn and other pop singers paid tribute to Spears during the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards with a mash-up/medley.
The songstress concluded the post by discussing hope and her desire to hold out hope that she can get her life back, despite people telling her otherwise.
She also added that if anyone doesn’t like her dancing or fanciful wishes to break free from the conservatorship, then they should un-follow her on the social media platform.
Internet critics have criticized Lynn over her silence on the subject of her sister’s conservatorship. She first took to Instagram to address Spears’ legal situation on June 28, saying that she has “only loved, adored and supported” her sister and that she does not stand to profit from her conservatorship.
Spears was first placed under a conservatorship, overseen by her father, back in 2008, following a series of public incidents and hospitalizations.
As per the reports, she asked Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny to terminate the conservatorship on June 28. While her legal battle continues, it recently took a turn in her favor when she was allowed to appoint a new attorney.
