Britney Spears finally speaks out on Tuesday about the heart-wrenching documentary that has been rocking her life … saying she was left embarrassed and in tears for two weeks by the way she was painted.
The FX/New York Times doc, “Framing Britney Spears,” covered the pop superstar’s rise to fame, as well as the conservatorship battle over her estate and the #FreeBritney movement propelled by her fans.
“I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in. I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!!” the 39-year-old singer shared on Instagram on Tuesday.
Britney shared a video of herself dancing to Aerosmith’s ‘Crazy,’ writing that it was her way of being able to feel “wild and human and alive.” while addressing the media and public scrutiny that she has faced throughout her career, which was recorded in the documentary that was released on Hulu last month.
“My life has always been very speculated …,” Spears wrote in the Instagram post. “Watched … and judged really my whole life !!!”
“I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people,” she posted.
“It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I’ve always been so judged… insulted… and embarrassed by the media… and I still am till this day.”
“Everyday dancing brings me joy !!! I’m not here to be perfect … perfect is boring … I’m here to pass on kindness,” she added.

Speaking on how Britney felt about the documentary, a source close to her says, “There are parts of the film that were too hard and emotional for her to watch — the scenes that describe the most difficult times of her life, the relentless media circus and the harsh focus on her as a young mother.
“But, she feels, for the first time in many years, that people are on her side and things will get better for her.”
