Watch Thread: Framing Britney Spears (FX+Hulu)


Recommended Posts

.

I just watched the documentary and I’m in tears right now. Felicia is the sweetest. It speaks volumes when you would think if her team wanted her to be “functional” that wouldn’t it be best to surround her with good people. The fact Fe got shut out like that is very telling.

I started crying and was so angry with Jamie though when that Jive record lady saying “I can’t wait for Britney to buy me a boat”.  It hurt me hearing that but I’m not surprised.

Also I agree Joe Jackson was abusive and hard as hell on his children. He forced all of them into show business and controlled their careers. Not even the finances, Latoya wrote in her book that she freely took $10,000 out of her own bank in the mid 80s. Joe let them do them and make mistakes when they were adults. The fact Jamie not only has control of Britney’s  career decisions but her finances too is psychotic and beyond over bearing is putting it lightly.

What smiled is how the documentary ended with Fe saying that Britney will tell her story one day. I hope this does happen. I was smiling but also crying. This was an emotional rollercoaster.

I don't think her mom Lynne is a stage mom or has her own interests. I think she supported Britney taking her to all these castings because Britney really wanted this, you know? So she was like 'OK you want this, you got the talent, let's go'. If Lynne were a stage mom she wouldn't have go back to Lousiana to take care of Jamielynn, she would have stayed with Britney traveling around and having fun and also controlling Britneys' career.

And from what I read back in the day Lynne didn't want to be the conservator because she's a weak person, she has no proper knowledge of what this is about and the strong personality to deal with lawyers etc. it's a lot of pressure...and Jamie has more personality to do this **** and to be able to control her daughter, you know what I mean?

in the end Jamie ****ed up because he is not a good man, let's be real. Lynne can't save her daughter because she is not the right person to do this either. At this point this conservatorship needs to end because they transformed it into a business and that is NOT OK.

correct me if wrong but one lawyer in the documentary who worked on britney's conservatorship, the asian lady (excuse me i forgot her name). she was interviewed by the documentary reproters and then she was rehired by britney's team for the conservatorship? maybe she was there to try to "defend" britney's ream? that sounded fishy

I had to stop 3 times watching, I was shaking all the time. I knew most of the stuff they said, but it was still hard to watch. :crying2_britney_crying_tears_2003_diane_sobbing_sad:

Cship need to go. Jamie can't be the most wonderful man that noone can stop him. There should be people in higher position to step in and stop it.:pika_pikachu_slap_fighting_hitting_mad:

The women lawyer, was so annoying. And after wards she came back to work for Jamie again?...:bieber_justin_smirk_weird:

I love Felicia, I so hope she and Britney reconnect when it's all over. She clearly loves and cares for Britney. 

Also, anyone figured out if roses are all over the doc because Britney was keep mentioning it, or Britney was giving us clues about the doc?🌹🌹🌹🌹

The more I look at Britney and her relationship with Jamie, the more I am reminded of my current relationship with mum. Mummy is very emotionally abusive to me and my siblings and the worst part is that my siblings brush it off and anytime I speak up about it, they all shut me down and guilt trip me and call me ungrateful. My mum keeps insulting and belittling me over the fact that I am unemployed forgetting that COVID screwed everyone hence my current situation. She keeps comparing me to others and even acknowledges how slow I am forgetting that I have Dyslexia. She even spends my sisters' money on her stuff. One of my sisters is trying to help by teaching me how to be a better writer. I dunno why I am still alive or why I have not yet committed suicide. I guess Britney gave me the strength to keep on going regardless of my painful situation.

The rage and sadness I felt watching:decisions_britney_thinking_confused_focusing_unsure_xfactor_bw_black_white:

It didn't reveal something we don't know. But it worked for general public. I'm pretty sure they found so much more. But cuz of NDAs and legal reasons they couldn't share. Unfortunately we r Britney's only voice. Everyone is else either ignorant, scared or under a NDA.

I'm sorry your dealing with this! Stay strong, where you are right now doesnt define your entire future. Remember "This too shall pass"

If you need extra help with writing etc i'm sure some of us exhalers can help. But,  your post is written extremely well and very readable!

About the roses: I believe there’s a connection there, but what way around? Is it possible that Britney knew all along about the documentary? But how? Did she receive information about it in secret. Just bothers me if she’s so isolated, how on EARTH they could have succeeded in this.

 

i still believe it, just curious :squint_meme_sunglasses_pink_stare_squint:

This documentary was just bad. No ground breaking info, a bunch of clips you can find on YouTube. No mentioning of the ME TOO movement!!!!!! Really was disappointed and this isnt going to make anything happen. Its already being portrayed as a mental health awareness which just shows people think Britney is mentally unstable. 

Really? It wasn't groundbreaking in regards of new info, but I liked how they narrated her story in the right light this time, and it was simple and beautiful, cause the world destroyed that girls life, and I feel like this film shows that, it's a beginning. I just hope the GP catches on to this
