Post-conservatorship life of 13 years, the 39-year-old singer shared her plans that includes a conversation with Oprah Winfrey, witnessing that her family are imprisoned, and buying candles.
On 16th November, Tuesday, Britney shared an Instagram video, the singer was grateful for those small things in life that once she was restricted to do.
Additionally, she also stated that she managed to save her life as a result of the grassroots #FreeBritney movement that gave an insight into the “abuse” she went through across her conservatorship.
In the video, the singer said “I’ve been in a conservatorship for 13 years,” continuing “It’s a long time to be in a situation you don’t want to be in. So, I’m just grateful, honestly, for each day.”
Britney Spears Hints at Tell-all Interview With Oprah Winfrey
As a California judge put an end to the complex and controversial legal arrangement that controlled her life, she explained in her most comprehensive statement that now she has realistic freedoms.
She talked about many things that she missed such as, as she said “Being able to have the keys to my car”, “owning an ATM card” and “seeing cash for the first time”, and “being able to buy candles”.
She further added “It’s the little things for us women but it makes a huge difference,” continuing “And I’m grateful for that. It’s nice. It’s nice.”
Spears Called Her Parents to Be Jailed
In the caption, she mentioned while giving hints about the probability of an interview with Oprah that may be around the corner, Spears called for her parents to be imprisoned.
She wrote “Might as well do a hint of my thoughts on the gram before I go and set things square on Oprah,” adding further “But honestly it still blows my mind every day I wake up how my family and the conservatorship were able to do what they did to me.”
She claimed “It was demoralizing and degrading!!!! I’m not even mentioning all the bad things they did to me which they should all be in jail for… yes including my church-going mother !!!!”
She had a simple remark when it comes to the Free Britney movement: “You guys rock.”
“Honestly, my voice was muted and threatened for so long and I wasn’t able to speak up and say anything,” she added saying “You guys saved my life, 100 percent.”
Besides all, she added that now she expects that her case will result in bringing some significant reforms in the “corrupt” conservatorship system.
She said “I’m not here to be a victim,” adding “I’ve lived with victims my whole life as a child. That’s why I got out of my house and I worked for 20 years and worked my ass off. I’m here to be an advocate for people with real disabilities and real illnesses.
I’m a very strong woman so I can only imagine what the system has done to those people.”
“So hopefully, my story will make an impact and make some changes in the corrupt system.” She said while concluding.
Legal Experts Had Warned About the Least Chances for Britney to Be Ever Freed
Previously, the warning has been given by legal experts mentioning that there are very few chances or maybe no for Britney to be free ever out of her conservatorship, particularly without a psychiatric evaluation for which the singer fiercely claimed that she is not ready to undergo the same.
In some U.S. states, Conservatorships, also called guardianships, are generally held for old, ill, or infirm kinds of people. According to the 2011 report of the National Center for State Courts, nearly 1.5 million active conservatorships were there.
There is no record of how many conservatees have filed petitions for terminating the arrangement which is not only a lengthy legal procedure but is even tough to achieve.
There have been warnings by certain activists that short-term conservatorships such as Britney’s one generally become permanent.
Last year, Zoe Brennan-Krohn, a staff attorney at the ACLU Disability Rights Project, said while warning that “Conservatorships are much easier to get into than to get out of.”
She added “Even if a conservatorship is instituted as a result of a temporary crisis, it often becomes effectively permanent. Extending long after the immediate crisis has passed, and is very hard to get out of.”
