Britney Spears has stated unequivocally that she would rather be “feared” than “loved.”
The pop star stated on Instagram on Tuesday that she does not want anyone’s sympathy following the termination of her conservatorship.
“Don’t ever pity me … I don’t want to be loved … I want to be feared !!! Being loved and being nice got me taken advantage of …… so take your pity and go f–k yourselves,” she captioned photos of herself in a black off-the-shoulder crop top with a matching skirt.
Britney stated that her recent trip to Las Vegas, where she used to perform her “Piece of Me” residency while under the control of her father Jamie, provided her with “a whole new perspective on what it means to live.”
“The only thing I’ve known when I used to go to Vegas was hour long meet and greets with 40 people every night getting the worst pics of me and then a two hour show ,” she wrote.
This is far from being the first time the Grammy Award winner has spoken openly about her residency; last August, she revealed that she only went out twice during the entire four-year run.
“I was thinking about when I did shows in Vegas … the four years I was there I went out only two times !!!! Unfortunately I’m not lying,” Britney penned down on Instagram at the time.
Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny lifted Britney Spears’ conservatorship in November 2021, after nearly 14 years, restoring her personal freedom and control over her multimillion-dollar estate. Soon after the ruling, she took to Instagram, declaring it the “best day ever.”
“Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!!” Spears wrote, adding the new hashtag “#FreedBritney” after fans posted “#FreeBritney” for months.
