There is no way in hell you don’t know who Britney is. If you’re online – you know who she is, and it doesn’t matter that the peak of her popularity was over a decade ago or possibly even before you were born. She’s such a massive pop icon that she’s literally recognised by first name only, even though as an artist she goes by full name Britney Spears.
This woman might be in her late 30s but her fan base knows no age limits. She’s loved by people all over the world and we’ve all had the privilege of following her career for over 2 decades now. She’s done many world tours, she’s written many hits that we still love and cherish to this day and her choreographed dance moves are legendary at this point. She’s also been through a lot and that’s left her in a very unique situation that many of her fans question and that’s were #FreeBritney comes is.
The #The FreeBritney movement started shortly after her famous breakdown in 2007 when she went through a divorce, shaved her head, and attacked a photographer. All this ended with Britney having to leave her house strapped to a gurney and being put into psychiatric care. In 2008 a court ruled a conservatorship over her assets and estate, which basically means that she’s had a legal guardian or group of guardians that are in charge of her financial situation and are meant to help her make important decisions. The court appointed Britney’s father as her legal guardian and at one point Britney’s manager was her legal guardian while her father was unwell.
