Idk, I never watched the live stream where Billy talked about the phone call so I can’t speak to whether I think he was telling the truth or not. But I did think he had some valid points at the rally that were mostly overlooked perhaps because of the way he worded himself. When he said the fans need to allow Britney to be Britney no matter what that looks like and to love her no matter the choices she makes, I FELT that. Everyone has been telling this woman who to be for a majority of her life, and for decades now seemingly everything she‘s done or said has been picked apart to shreds. As much as I know the members of BH love Britney and want to see her treated fairly, I think sometimes our concern for her can easily run into the territory of thinking we, as fans, know better for her than she does. And that in itself isn’t fair. Britney should be able to dress how she wants, wear her makeup how she wants, post how she wants, talk to whoever she wants(yes, even Jason Alexander if that’s who she chooses,) and we should trust that she knows what’s best for herself. Both because we truly don’t know her personally, and because she’s a grown woman who deserves that benefit of the doubt from her fans who are supposed to love her unconditionally. It hurt my soul seeing people on here make comments like “well maybe something really IS wrong if she’s actually wanting to be with Jason again.” How would anyone here know what their relationship is truly like? Like that’s such a harsh judgement. Regardless of what we think of him he’s a part of her childhood. Imagine if she really was talking to him AND really was reading Exhale seeing those kind of suggestions? We don’t really know the truth of Britney’s every day life. We piece together bits and pieces of what we’re told about her current situation and then from there all we can do is pretty much project our own emotions/experiences onto her in trying to imagine how she actually feels.
(For the record, I think that the Free Britney movement as a whole is incredible, I support it 100%, and I believe the fans here on BH have Britney’s best interest at heart. I just think there’s a fine line between helping and being overbearing, and we need to keep in mind that fighting for Britney’s freedom means fighting for her to choose her own path no matter what it may look like. It’s not our place to judge her.)
With all that being said, my question now is why is everyone so quick to think Billy was lying about her being on here? Why are so many people bypassing the idea that the rules of the conservatorship could’ve changed in the months since Jodi took over? I’ve seen so many comments about how Britney would be contacting a lawyer or making public pleas for help if she had access to a phone. Why would we know anything about what she’s doing in her private time? Idk, I really do trust that the reason she’s not speaking is because she does have a plan, she trusts God, and she trusts that the courts are finally going to do right by her. And I don’t think she owes us an explanation no matter how worried we may be, because at the end of the day it’s HER life. I know that if everything I said was scrutinized by millions, I wouldn’t want to speak out during such a challenging time in my life either. Yet at the same time it’s not hard for me to believe that she would call up an old friend who she saw out on the streets advocating for her humanity. Or that she would be curious as to what her fans are saying about everything going on with her rn. And it makes me so sad to imagine her genuinely asking him to send out that message to us and then to see a majority of people shrugging off her words and calling it all a lie.
Again I don’t know what’s true or what’s not, and I’m sorry that this is a LOT- I usually refrain from sharing my thoughts on the internet tbh. But this has just been haunting me for a couple days now and I needed to let it out 😩
