#FREEBRITNEY | Britney’s Gram Received Worrying Voicemail Regarding Britney


Recommended Posts

This letter shows once again that when Britney talk to any of them, manager, lawyer and/or family they only see the super star, the image and all those superficial things. This woman was seeing her marriage falling apart, her dream of having this happy family and everything was crambling, after 2 pregnancies back to back she was probably already very tired, phyisically and mentally but all they cared about was her image. "They hear what i am saying but they are not listening"

I bet you Larry was thinking about how he gonna sell this divorce as a comeback at that time

Correct, and almost all of these points are essentially discussed in this overlooked article by Sarah Seltzer from 2009; most notably in the following paragraphs:

"The Britney Show: A Pop Princess and American Womanhood"

"Britney Spears’ pop-tart image was created as a fantasy for the average man, but since her brush with the ugly side of fame, she’s been subjected to the average female nightmare. The public, and press, have leveled at Spears a litany of critiques that are familiar to everyday women: she’s lost her *** appeal, she’s a bad mother, she’s “crazy,” she’s fat, she’s over the hill before the age of 30, she’s angry and out of control. When Spears smashed her teen-queen facade by shaving her head, acting out, and being less than impeccably groomed, the public reacted with loathing and voyeurism; now, Spears’ “comeback” consists of losing her legal independence and at 27 (her birthday was just a few weeks ago), being micro-managed back into the same role she had as a comely teenager—the role that may have caused all the problems to begin with."

On Sunday night two weeks ago, MTV aired a Britney-approved documentary in which she opened up about her life for the first time in years. But the two hours of TV were more tragic than triumphant. In between moments of happy rehearsals and studio antics, the film focused in as Britney tearfully described her current life as “sad,” plagued by angsty boredom despite the rehearsals that are supposed to give her joy. The documentary included a moment in which Spears said that every day to her now feels like “Groundhog Day,” as well as some shocking footage of her car being mobbed by paparazzi and her handlers shielding her with a sheet as she shopped. Spears said she longed to take walks without being hounded, to “feel the crispy air... be a part of the people.” One of her entourage expounded: “The only time she’s free is when she’s in a closed four by four space.”

In light of all that, it’s been disturbing this week to watch Spears go through the motions of performances meant to highlight her toned physique and ability to do some rudimentary dance moves. One wonder whether Spears is ready for this “comeback,” or whether the army of male managers, including her dad, have foisted it on her because they don’t know what else to do—and she’s their cash cow. A woman who has been in the public eye since before she could make decisions for herself can’t break away from her abusive lifelong relationship with her audience, as their ***-object, squeal inducer and punching bag.

Writing about Britney in the midst of this blatantly-engineered publicity blitz is problematic: by paying attention to her, we are feeding the machine that keeps her in a cycle of public humiliation and redemption. We are reinforcing the presentation of a person—a woman—as merchandise.

Indeed, after that [2007 VMA] performance, the AP wrote, with its tongue not far enough in its cheek, that Britney’s physique was the “most unforgivable” aspect of her performance. And now that she can bare her midriff without shame, she is considered healed. Her father, cried during the documentary because his daughter was “beautiful” again. Talk about unhealthy messaging.

During that flabby midriff era, Britney may have been controlling her life and image the only way she knew how: by flouting public requirements. The reality is we don’t know what Spears really thinks or feels beyond the clues she offered on TV. What we do know is that her handlers, parents, managers, paparazzi and the public may have irreparably damaged her life for profit and gratification, leaving her trapped between being a wind-up-toy and a train wreck. Perhaps that’s why so many are rooting for this woman’s comeback by buying her album, even as it feeds a vicious cycle for her and all of us.

This article says it all, her army of "male managers" , you add to that the fact that anyone who could care about her as a person like Fe or her kids are taken away from her. She has been dehumanized by the industry , once it was not enough to just do it on an emotional level because she was trying to rebel they used the law so she can keep being their doll they put out for a red carpet or show to cash money and put back to her golden prison of her house .

She said it herself in this letter, as long as there is money, it will go on forever . Fans supporting the Britney Spears Brand are indirectly supporting this situation, and while we can claim we did not know the extend of the situation during those 11 years, it is now right in our face . I will not blame the GP because they at best go with whatever is on TMZ but us, we know and boycotting the brand should be one of our main weapon

reminds me of the leaked email where she claim the one who was giving her drinks was also the one telling to go to rehab. He is such a narcissistic pervert 

Is that it is the truth there are photos in late 2006 early 07 where Britney and Larry are partying and drinking champagne with her old dancers and friends, that much is talked about the parties of Paris and Britney but bit on those of Tj,Brian and Britney.

But didn't almost EVERYONE say this way back in 2004??  Before she even married him??? (And throughout their marriage)

Just take a look at this thread from June 2004;

https://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/archive/index.php/t-52730.html

Obviously part of her decision-making was trying to elude her previous image but still...

 

I know but she should have chosen better...at least one person who showed interest in her,Kevin was not even interested in her.She should also have had personality and not be influenced by what people thought of her.

Have yall seen her new insta post? I think it finally matches the recent candids - fuller face, nice hair.

In the vid where she said she posts her own videos, her face looked straight out of 2018 pre Dom announcement and her hair looked awful + the racoon eyes. 

i think her team is finally letting her post on her own again after all the backlashes they received (must be highly monitored though). All in all, it shows that we have power over them and our voices are heard

Alliterate, not illiterate. Both names start with the same letter. I have read that about Bey, tho.

Also read Janets baby is in fact her grand daughter..

The irony :yesokay:

Grand daughter? She has a son. Or are you talking about the girl who they say is her daughter?
