Britney Spears had fans talking about her big return to the music world with ‘Hold Me Closer‘ over the weekend and also released a YouTube video talking about her conservatorship.
She opened the video (which is only audio) by talking about how she had many options and offers to get paid to do an interview, even mentioning Oprah. But she thinks it’s tacky to get paid to talk about her struggles. I am assuming that was a jab at her sister Jamie Spears who released a tell-all book earlier this year.
One comment that stuck out to me is that her dad said to her at one point “I am Britney Spears now, I’m calling the shots”
The control is like nothing I have ever seen. She said that her fans and the entire #FreeBritney movement saved her life. Again, Britney has had a few months. She married her long-time boyfriend, Sam, and released a new song with Elton John that went #1 in over 40 countries.
Elton John has been a huge advocate for her as well. Probably why he asked her to be on this song with him.
You have to watch the video it will give you goosebumps when she talks about her Vegas residency and how they sent her away to a hospital for 2 weeks because she said she didn’t want to do a certain dance in rehearsals.
