Britney Spears Says She Won't Perform On Stage Again As Long As Dad Controls Her Career
| Last updated
Britney Spears has announced she will not perform on stage again while her dad controls her career.
The singer hit out at her dad Jamie, stating that the conservatorship, which he has held over her affairs since 2008, has 'killed her dreams'.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Britney said she would continue to dance in her living room and just wants to perform for her fans, hoping one day they will get to hear her new music.
She wrote: "Look, I'm not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think.
"I've done that for the past 13 years... I'd much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas where some people were so far gone they couldn't even shake my hand and I ended up getting a contact high from weed all the time... which I didn't mind but it would have been nice to be able to go to the mother f***ing spa.
"And no I'm not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years and begging to put my new music in my show for MY fans... so I quit."
As well as criticising her father, Britney also took aim at her sister over a 2017 appearance at the Radio Disney Music Awards, where she performed Britney's song 'Till The World Ends'.
The 39-year-old wrote: "I don't like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes! My so-called support system hurt me deeply.
"This conservatorship killed my dreams... so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill... yet people still try."
She also repeated her criticism of the documentaries that have been made about her life.
She said: "I didn't like the way the documentaries bring up humiliating moments from the past... I'm way past all that and have been for a long time.
"And for women who say it's weird the way I still have hope for fairy tales... go f*** yourself.
"As I said... hope is all I have right now... you're lucky I post anything at all... if you don't like what you see, unfollow me.
"People try to kill hope because hope is one of the most vulnerable and fragile things there is !!!! I'm gonna go read a mother f***ing fairy tale now."
She added: "Psss if you don't want to see my precious ass dancing in my living room or it's not up to your standards... go read a f***ing book."
Britney's fiery post comes a few weeks after she claimed her father should be in jail during a recent conservatorship hearing.
According to The Independent, Spears told the court on 23 June: "I am not happy, I can't sleep. I'm so angry, it's insane. And I'm depressed.
"My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management... they should be in jail.
"I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I don't feel like I can live a full life."
