Cyrus and others in support of Britney Spears
Miley Cyrus showed support to Britney Spears during a ‘Party in the USA’ performance during Super Bowl. She said: “We love you Britney!” and she’s not the only celebrity who is showing solidarity to the singer after a documentary on her life was released.
‘Framing Britney’ is the new documentary produced by The New York Times, telling the true story of Britney Spears’ controversies over her welfare. The singer was in fact put under ‘conservatorship’ 13 years ago, after she had experienced several mental breakdowns. Due to concerns over her mental health, her father Jamie Spears took control of her estate and her daily life, even controlling her calls and texts.
A #FreeBritney movement started on social media in 2020 in support of Britney Spears’ plea to remove her father as her conservator. Many celebrities showed support, like Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, Hayley Williams, just to name a few.

Britney Spears’ father has defended himself saying he is protecting his daughter from individuals ‘with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her’. After the ‘Framing Britney’ documentary was released on 5 February, people are sharing messages of solidarity and support, even apologysing for what she had to go through after the enormous success.
