The Framing Britney Spears special by the New York Times is finally available to stream on Hulu, giving fans of this iconic pop singer an in-depth look at her current struggles involving a conservatorship. While it’s clear that the release of this documentary will boost supporters of the #FreeBritney movement, we were very much surprised at the positive reactions given by celebrities.
Check out all of the awesome feedback given by certain celebrities in support of #FreeBritney, hoping that the singer & songwriter finally takes back control of her life & belongings . . . legally.
Framing Britney Spears
Framing Britney Spears, currently available to stream on Hulu, follows Britney Spears’s twelve-year long conservatorship, first put in place in 2008 after multiple public mental outbreaks. The conservatorship is led by her father Jamie, allowing him to make decisions for all of Britney Spears’s estates & businesses. Additionally, in 2020 it was determined that Jamie Spears would also control her Bessemer Trust.
The documentary has a clear focus on supporting the #FreeBritney movement as well as ending the conservatorship placed on her. However, the film also explores the harassment Spears suffered from the media ever since she was a teenager, including a rough Diana Sawyer interview from 2003.
The documentary also touched on Justin Timberlake’s part in all of this, and how he publicly burned Spears after their breakup in 2002. Timberlake used the media to tarnish her “good girl” image by sharing explicit details of their relationship over time. He capped it all off with his 2002 hit “Cry Me a River”, which clearly depicts him trying to get revenge on an ex-l0ver who cheated on him.
Celebs hop on the #FreeBritney movement
It’s no secret that Britney Spears has her fair share of supporters. However, did you know that many who support the #FreeBritney movement are actually celebrities? While it’s likely due to their understanding of what fame & the media can do to you personally, it’s still so cool to see these celebrities reach out and let their support for Britney Spears be heard.

Britney Spears’ music was my first exposure to POP music. Her impact was/is profound and it always baffled me as to why people were so brutal to her when she was down. It’s great the world is more sensitive to mental health now, but upsetting it took this long in Britney’s case.

Y’all..it’s plaguing me that nobody knows if @britneyspears is truly okay. Really hoping that if she isn’t she can formally vocalize it in some way and that she knows all of us on the outside really give a shit about her well-being. ????
