Britney Spears says she will ‘probably never perform again’ after ‘trauma’ Britney Spears

Britney Spears fans, hoping the pop star will perform live again now that she’s freed from an infamous conservatory that ruled her life for more than a decade, might not want to hold their breath.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, Spears said she was “quite traumatized” by her work on stage under the Conservatory and said she would “probably never perform again” despite her recent collaboration with Elton John, Hold Me Closer. experienced professional resurgence.

The 40-year-old singer said she was devastated that she had no creative control over her music videos while she was involuntarily under the conservatory, which was primarily run by her father Jamie Spears from 2008 to 2021.

Spears also criticized photos taken by former conservators during the performances, saying she was uncomfortable with the number of dancers by her side during a four-year residency in Las Vegas.

“I’d rather … take pictures of myself in studios than work with the most obnoxious people in my life,” Spears said. “I’m pretty traumatized for life and yes I’m pissed as hell and no I probably won’t perform again just because I’m stubborn and will make my point.”

Her post on Sunday ended with the words, “Kiss my Goddamn motherfucking ass.”

The remarks were the first since the end of her conservatory in which Spears directly addressed whether she planned to resume live performances. She had previously spoken about how she was probably on stage through singing.

Raised in Kentwood, Louisiana about 90 miles northwest of New Orleans, Spears stormed the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits like Oops! I Did It Again, Baby One More Time, Toxic and Gimme More.

But amid intense scrutiny of her personal relationships, she displayed erratic behavior in public, and her father and his legal advisers placed her under guardianship that essentially prevented her from doing anything for herself.

Spears said the agreement limited her, among other things, to receiving a $2,000 weekly allowance during her stay in Las Vegas, which netted more than $160 million. She also couldn’t get married or administer her own contraception, she said.

A judge ended the conservatory in November 2021, to the delight of fans who started the #FreeBritney movement online and sometimes on the streets.

Spears has since married her longtime boyfriend, actor Sam Asghari, and released the duet with Elton John. Hold Me Closer topped the streaming charts in more than 40 countries. A video was reportedly in the works. But Spears hasn’t performed live since her Las Vegas residency ended in 2017.

Her post on Sunday also came after she made headlines by releasing a series of audio clips in which she spoke about her estrangement from her two sons, aged 16 and 15, from a previous marriage.

One of the boys, Jayden, gave an interview to 60 Minutes Australia in which he said he didn’t come to his mother’s wedding because she “didn’t invite [the] entire family”.

Among those who weren’t invited were Jayden’s father, Kevin Federline, and his maternal grandfather, Jamie Spears.

Spears said of her sons, “Since they’ve been gone, I honestly feel like a big part of me has died.”
