'Framing Britney Spears' premiered last week, sparking renewed interest in the singer's condition.
The Britney Spears documentary has been doing the rounds over the past few days. 'The New York Times Presents' documentary charts the iconic singer's rise to stardom, her break-up with Justin Timberlake, and the later controversial conservatorship which now sees her father Jamie have full control of the 39-year-old's finances.
The documentary has put the #FreeBritney movement back onto the radar, with many fans and celebrities sharing their support towards the pop star. The documentary is currently not yet available in Ireland (unless you have a VPN to access Hulu in the States).
And now, for the first time since the documentary aired last week, Britney has broken her silence. Sharing a stage version of 'Toxic', the singer posted on Instagram: "Can't believe this performance of Toxic is from 3 years ago !!! I'll always love being on stage."
The performer then turned her attention to the reaction to the 'Framing Britney Spears' special. She did not directly mention the film but made a subtle reference to "living behind the lens", which indicates that she may be keeping up with what everyone is saying.
She continued: "But I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ….. I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life !!!!
"Each person has their story and their take on other people's stories !!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives !!!
"Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person's life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens !!!!"
'Framing Britney Spears' was created without any of the Spears' family involvement.
