Britney Spears has revealed that she has been “traumatised for life” after her 13-year-long conservatorship, and likely won’t be able to perform live shows again.
In the since-deleted Instagram post, Spears shared a lengthy message reflecting on the work required to put on her past shows, as well as the process involved in preparing her live performances. She started off her message by claiming she didn’t have any creative control over her music during that time and revealed the only music video she liked was for her 2013 single, ‘Work Bitch.’
The singer also shared unpleasant experiences she’s had working with photographers. “The most offensive SO CALLED professional pictures on every tour. I mean they could have at least cheated and retouched them for me… just saying… two day shoots for new show in Vegas literally the worst ever… and me excited for the pictures for five months on tour… they never showed me any,” Spears wrote.
The 40-year-old continued by revealing that she would be uncomfortable performing with several dancers in her squad before adding that she probably won’t perform again. “I’m pretty traumatised for life and yes I’m pissed as fuck and no I won’t probably perform again just because I’m stubborn and I will make my point,” she wrote before ending her message with “kiss my God damn mother fucking ass.”
Spears hasn’t performed live since 2017 which came on the closing night of her Las Vegas residency on New Years Eve. However, she did recently return to music with her Elton John collaboration ‘Hold Me Closer,’ marking her first single since the conservatorship ended.
