There's no ghostwriter for Britney Spears' Instagram posts, according to the pop star herself.
The question as to the authenticity of Britney's social media has come up of late on the Internet, particularly after she criticized the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary on Instagram and said she was "embarrassed" by how she was portrayed. Many people, though, believe that the singer had nothing to do with that March 30 social media post. The theory was given more fuel after one of Britney's former makeup artists, Billy Brasfield, claimed the "Toxic" singer told him via text that she didn't write that caption.
However, on April 2, the pop star told TMZ that she has had no communication with her ex-makeup artist and insisted that she did, indeed, write that caption.
"No, I'm not talking to him at all. I write my posts. I'm not sure who he is talking to, but I am not talking to Billy B," she told the webloid.
Many of the #FreeBritney battalion seem to think that Britney's social media manager, Cassie Petrey, is behind the critical words. TMZ disputed that claim earlier in the week, citing sources close to Britney, but that didn't stop her passionate fans from voicing their opinions and theories.
The #FreeBritney movement, which advocates for the end of the conservatorship that has been in place since 2008, has grown since the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary. Hundreds of people have even shown up outside court hearings pertaining to the conservatorship. Britney had stayed silent about the documentary for nearly two months before her much-maligned caption this week.
"My life has always been very speculated …watched … and judged really my whole life !!!" she wrote alongside a video of her dancing to Aerosmith's music. "I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people!!! It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I've always been so judged… insulted… and embarrassed by the media… and I still am till this day!!!!"
"As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people!!! I didn't watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!!" she wrote. "I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy … love … and happiness !!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I'm not here to be perfect … perfect is boring … I'm here to pass on kindness!!!!"
