What’s Britney’s future? Check Instagram

NEW YORK – After nearly 14 years of living under strict protection that she considered abusive and exploitative, Britney Spears is free.

And now that a California court overturned the controversial legal settlement that prevents one of the world’s best-selling pop stars from managing her life and finances, many fans are wondering what comes next.

Speculation abounds – Children? Travel? Suing his family? – but the answer is elusive, especially considering the conservative lifestyle Spears was legally linked to for more than a decade that saw her largely ruled by her father, Jamie.

The magnetic superstar, who turns 40 on December 2, hasn’t given an interview in years, rarely makes public appearances, and last performed in October 2018.

Today most of what audiences know about Spears – who rose to world fame as a teenager with a blast of hits including her breakout “… Baby One More Time,” before a much-publicized mental breakdown. saw it become a paparazzi punching bag – it comes from his quirky Instagram account.

For years the bubbly star has been posting regularly, sometimes uploading videos of herself twirling or doing dance routines, other times poetically enacting hopes and dreams.

The line of communication from Spears’ lavish Los Angeles mansion to the outside world – she has more than 90 million followers on Instagram and Twitter – has given the singer a bit of control over her image, and is perhaps the place where she reads the most. accurate of his light plans.

In October – just weeks after her father was removed from guardianship, paving the way for the settlement to be terminated – Spears expressed anxiety about her future in a lengthy letter.

“I’ll be honest and say I’ve waited so long to get rid of the situation I’m in,” he wrote. “Now that he’s here I’m afraid of doing anything because I’m afraid of making a mistake.”

Family planning

The wedding was a theme, with Spears in September announcing her engagement to 27-year-old Sam Asghari.

Earlier this week she said Donatella Versace was designing her gown, even though a wedding date hasn’t been publicly set.

Spears also said she wants to have another child. She shares two boys, both now teenagers, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, who has custody of the majority.

In a chilling indictment in June, she told the Los Angeles judge that she eventually ended the guardianship that under the agreement she was forced to have a contraceptive IUD in place, despite her desire to conceive.

Along with controlling her own reproductive system, Spears now has power over her fortune, which is estimated to be worth about $ 60 million.

This year he took a number of vacations including to Hawaii and French Polynesia, where he posted a post on flying lessons.

Execution “is not your top priority”

But while Spears seems focused on family and travel, high on the priority list of fans – and industry players – is whether she’ll resume performing or release new music.

The superstar has released four studio albums under the tutelage, most recently “Glory” from 2016.

She has also been among the singers to stage wildly profitable Las Vegas residences in recent years. Her four-year run “Britney: Pieces of Me” grossed $ 138 million.

But in January 2019 he abruptly canceled his planned return to Las Vegas, going on indefinite professional hiatus.

She wrote on Instagram in July that “I will not be performing on any stage anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do or think !!!!”

“I would much rather share the S videos from my living room than on stage in Vegas.”

In the same post, Spears indicated that she was excluded from scheduling her Las Vegas shows, becoming more of a puppet than an artist.

Ever since Friday’s prosecution tabloids have been buzzing about her next career moves, with Page Six citing an “insider” who said Spears “wants to make music and perform again” but “don’t. it’s his top priority right now and it hasn’t been for a while. “

Tell everyone?

Also on the bridge are the upcoming hearings on the millions involved in the struggle to free Britney – all of which have been billed to the singer’s estate, with a constellation of lawyers and family members on both sides seeking payments.

It is possible that Spears may take legal action against her father, which she hinted at during a court hearing, but has not taken formal steps.

His main appeal against his father would be to provide evidence that he mishandled Spears’ money or overcharged her in his role as his financial conservative; he resigned as curator of his person in 2019, taking over from a professional.

Spears said TV scripts and screenplays of her story have recently poured in, though she said “I’m not dead” and isn’t interested in anyone else portraying her.

He also hinted at a revelation: “Lord, have mercy on the souls of my family if you ever have to do an interview,” he wrote in October.
