Britney Spears has broken her silence amid the controversy surrounding an unauthorised TV documentary about her life.
The 39-year-old singer has been under an intense media spotlight for the past couple of decades and lives under a conservatorship which sees her handing over control of vast areas of her life to others.
Britney has battled mental health issues over the past 20 years, as she finds ways to cope with her fame but she has said that she is looking to enjoy a “normal life” after a chaotic past.
She shared a 2017 clip of herself performing her hit song “Toxic” on Instagram on Tuesday, and assured fans that she is “enjoying the basics” of life.
Captioning the video, Britney wrote: “I’ll always love being on stage …. but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person.
“I love simply enjoying the basics of every day [sic] life !!!! Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!!”
The singer continued: “We all have so many different bright beautiful lives.
“Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens.”
Documentary Framing Britney Spears has thrown the spotlight back on the singer and amid the furore surrounding its airing, Britney’s boyfriend Sam Asghari had shared a message of support.
He wrote on Instagram: “I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves.”
He also took aim at Britney’s dad Jamie, labelling him a “d**k” and saying that he has been trying to control their relationship.
Sam told People: “I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together.”
Britney’s post comes just days before a new court hearing in her conservatorship case.
