Being a Britney fan is hard.

Recommended Posts

Who the F cares what GP thinks. Have you seen the comments on her instagram, those people are C R A Z Y, a lot crazier than Britney's wildest instagram captions. Society really hasn't evolved a **** since 2007 :huh_britney_confused_what_2003_itz_zone_in_the:

Pro tip: if you don't want to see her "outbursts" or mean comments about her, you log off from social media, easy as that. Just remember that Britney is human being and not a product that needs to look good in front of GP  :oprah_well_there_you_have_it_proof_see_hand:

This is such a weird position because she shares her trauma publicly, something that is very sensitive. We are people and I think it's a normal reaction that some of us judge her (in our heads, commenting is weird) :yasqueen_yes_wow_crying_praise_tears_wipe_sad: 

Obviously conspiracy theories, rude people need to go :drag_tiffany_ny_new_york_miss_ms_fight_pull_push_mad:

It's her decision but we all know that Internet people love to comment on everything, they will always have their opinions :oprah_well_there_you_have_it_proof_see_hand:

What I’m sick of are the people who come to me about her Instagram as if I’m her ******* publicist, it’s like the past few family gatherings, the topic always comes up cuz I’m the hardcore Britney fan. Ignoring strangers questioning her behavior is easy but when it’s your family, it’s a little hard to avoid.

I try to seize the opportunity to show people their deeply embedded misogyny, how their opinion was formed by tabloids and how toxic their own social media behavior is. Once you explain it to them a lot of people really get it.

I feel that. I don't think ill ever stop loving what she did as a pop icon but she has gone so far from what she represented in the past that it is too difficult to not be constantly critical. Some will say "but the conservatorship broke her bla bla" and "true fans are there no matter what" but the reallity is she no longer represents the values she once did. I'm sorry but there is no excuse for shaming and being a ***** all the time.

It's sad cause the only reason i visit this forum is because of her, and i've been here since the beginning. 

I would agree with you if it had been a long time since the conservatorship ended, but it’s too recent; she’s still adjusting and re-learning basic social skills; she is very angry still.

If the same behavior continues, let’s say 6 years down the line or we see no improvement whatsoever, no effort to grow and heal then maybe I can share your opinion but for now she needs a bit of understanding.

She is wrong in the way she is behaving; like you shouldn’t be so mean to someone publicly - specially knowing you have millions of followers - because that can be pretty traumatic for that employee, but I believe she will see the wrong in her actions over time.

Lets be a bit more patient and understanding, while still knowing she is not right.

I've been a fan since the Sometimes video came out, it's always been hard in some ways to be a Brit fan because she's had haters since the very start. There were a lot of highs back then tho, so it was easy to ignore the hate, stick up for her against haters etc, there's not many highs anymore. All in all I just want her to keep being happy.

I agree with the person who mentioned invested, I used to be so invested, defending her etc online and such but a few albums ago I stopped being invested. I still care tho, just silently.

I think it's important to continue showing her love and support, especially through some of these bumps on the road. That doesn't = blindly support everything she says / does, but you can still give love (even from afar). The alternative is far worse. 

Thank you for saying this. That was what I was trying to say but I must have said it completely different.

This is the most over dramatic post! It really isn’t hard to be a Britney fan at all. You and Britney are not the same person. Britney can express herself however she pleases! It’s not her fault that you misinterpret her post and project onto her. 

I stated that I am not showing hate or shade. A summary of this is I just wish the public would let her be and if she decides to shade others who don't deserve it then just leave her alone.

I don’t feel that way at all. I think you’re just embarrassed of a woman that has obviously gone through extensive periods of abuse and trauma and she’s no longer the perfect little fake pop star that Team Con sold you for years. I feel proud of calling myself a fan. I’m not ashamed of her. 

I never said I was ashamed of her. All I said was shading others for probable no reason isn't good. The ones who should be getting hate is anyone who has actually caused her to suffer...

Of course. I understand that she doesn't need to look good for us and the public. All I wish is she didn't shade people that don't apparently need it. (Selena..employee ect.) She should really be going against her family which she has not really had the chance to do for about 15 years

You are wrong when you think that her behavior affects on what the gp thinks about her.. No matter what she does she will get hate, that's how it is with all celebrities.. Our world is cruel and there are many people who enjoy putting other people down especially celebrities. The more famous you are, the greater the hatred towards you.

I'm so sorry to say this but I feel like in 2020 and beyond  it is really hard to be a Britney fan. We will most likely always support Britney but she has been doing really shady and unnecessary lately and just because she is Britney doesn't mean she should be doing this. I completely love and support britney...but it is getting difficult.The general public is painting her as a bully and it is somehow affecting us fans. I hope she finds happiness

Britney Spears Ugh GIF 

Awwww, poor you! I  can't imagine the pain of this misfortune. I hope you get better soon. You deserve to be happy!

Prayin for you, baby, you poor thing...

I hear you! I don't think the GP has any sort of bad image about her now but it's definitely tiring to defend her in these dedicated pop culture spaces (like ATRL) where people are so ready to pounce on her at the cusp of any opportunity they see and are ready to even say things like her being fatphobic or even suggesting that she should've been kept in the conservatorship.

I get the amount of pent up trauma and frustration has made her want to let out her inner feelings but coming after a worker who was just checking up on her was definitely not a look. He didn't mind it but that post was left to millions of other people to see who definitely would not be holding the same stance as him. There are countless stories of people who've worked with hundreds of snobby celebrities, who have praised Britney for her humble and sweet nature...Unfortunately, not many are ready to look at such stories. It's only what lures the eye that gets the most attention.

I am earnestly waiting for the release of the book as it will be a very professional medium to vent out her feelings without setting herself up, so that people can again hear and understand where she is coming from.
