I need time (time)
Love (love)
Joy (joy)
I need space
I need me

Say hello to the girl that I am!
You're gonna have to see through my perspective
I need to make mistakesjust to learn who I am
And I don't wanna be so damn protected
There must be another way
Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do
God, I need some answers

What am I to do with my life
(You will find it out don'tworry)
How Am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

Amira Lam.:
Britney is in a conservatorship, which are intended for elderly people with dementia, since 2008. She has not controlled her own medical decisions, been able to drive her car without permission, get married or even pregnant, or vote in that time. She has been legally classified as unable to make decisions. Conservatorship of a person is intended for when someone is no longer able to feed, clothe or bathe themselves.

Yet, just months after being put under the arrangement, her handlers had her releasing an album and embarking on a world tour, The Circus Starring Britney Spears. She has been on multiple world-wide tours, performed a residency in Vegas for over 4 years (worth mentioning there was never a single cancelled show except when she injured her ankle dancing on stage), acted as judge on X factor, and has recorded & produced 4 musical albums while conserved.

Meanwhile, she can legally be denied a phone, internet access, to make calls or emails, or have any visitors without supervision and permission. The conservators can ensure she is watched by 24/7 security she doesn’t choose, and even her children can be only allowed to visit her so long as the conservators are happy with her behaviour.

She has protested this since the beginning when she was held on a 5150 and her father, who Britney says has always been an abusive alcoholic, filed for a temporary conservatorship on the basis that she has dementia. Yes, the same woman touring the world and generating millions of dollars of income every year is legally denied her most basic autonomy because a judge signed off on her father’s claim she has dementia.

The arrangement has since been made permanent & shows no signs of stopping. Judge Brenda Penny has upheld the arrangement while court appointed attorney Samuel Ingham and scummy business manager Lou Taylor have profited from the income generated. Most of the entities involved are under investigation for other abuses of powers and people.

Late 2018, Britney was coming off her 4+ year Vegas residency, looking and performing at an absolute peak. She allegedly started refusing some medications, and so her dad pulled support from her projects and forced her into a mental facility for 3 months against her wishes.

Impersonating Britney, a handler released a statement on her Instagram saying she herself chose to take some time off to help care for her father who was ill. Thats when a paralegal working with a law office overseeing Britney’s conservatorship leaked the truth, that she was forced into a mental health centre. The handlers had to pivot and tell the press her “cocktail of medications becoming ineffective”, they even went as far as to claim she was “near death”, so they had no choice but to commit her against her will. Instagram posts showing her in tip-top shape were deleted, presumably because they couldn’t push their false narriative of her being near death with her feed showing her to be an extraordinarily able-bodied performer with a sound mind.

Britney spoke out in court after being released, though the court has denied her basic human rights and any due process since this charade began long ago. Britney spoke about being forced medications, forced into the facility, and having her children used as pawns, she begged the judge for her freedoms to be reinstated. All her requests were denied.

Ever since Britney spoke up, she seems to have mentally declined at an alarming rate. She has not been seen with her children in many months. Britney now rocks back and forth while speaking in her Instagram videos, her pupils are noticeably dilated, and she behaves nothing like the woman that owned the world before she was put under these controls.

Let’s remember, she is not in charge of her own medical decisions. She does not control her own Instagram page. She has been gaslight, isolated, drugged, stripped of her wealth and children, for over twelve years.

The conservatorship is currently under investigation. Her doctor passed away days before he was due to give his report on her medical care. There have been no other findings presented to the courts from the investigation yet.

Britney is on hiatus from work as a protest against the arrangement. So, the handlers dug out all her old costumes and props, stuck them in an abandoned K-mart, and are charging $60 a head for people to walk through it. The transparent gimmick to milk Britney’s legacy for everything it’s worth with none of the proceeds going to Britney herself, is called Britney The Zone, located in Las Vegas.

Spread the word, public pressure is the only thing that can possibly help unwind this.

Is Britney Ok?! NO!!!

I always found it weird how someone else wrote these songs. This one, Lucky. It just almost seems like they knew what was happening (or what would happen) and then almost taunted her with singing these upbeat songs about it. Idk how to explain it, but it's weird.

Hello, my name is Ariel, I am from Mexico. I am trying to raise funds to be able to return to university since I had to abandon it to help my mother and my brother, I currently work repairing clothes, and I do some work such as rehearsals or crafts but I cannot go back to school, I am trying to develop bags for myself, my idea is to incorporate organic materials that do not pollute the planet, so I can help myself to work and thus be able to go back to school, I want to study architecture, please take the time to read my story and my idea to get ahead, if you can help me by donating or sharing my message to more people I would appreciate it, if you have questions ask me, the least I want is for them to think that I want to scam them when all I am looking for is to achieve my dream of being an architect.
This is my campaign where I explain my situation and my idea I hope you can help me:
I also made a video that is on youtube if you want to see it:
You can also make a direct donation in Paypal which is linked to my fundraising campaign:
With all my heart thank you for taking the time to read my situation, thank you very much, blessings

It makes my skin crawl to think that while there's this song where she sings about being overprotected and not being able to make her own choices,.. but the song was written and produced by the people who controlled her.

Say hello to the girl that I am
You're going to have to see through my perspective
I need to make mistakes just to learn who I am
And I don't want to be so damn protected

There must be another way
Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do?
God, I need some answers

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I'll tell them what I like, what I want, what I don't
But every time I do I stand corrected
Things that I've been told
I can't believe what I hear about the world, I realize
I'm overprotected

There must be another way
'Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do?
God, I need some answers

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I need time (love)
I need space
(This is it, this is it)

I don't need nobody telling me just what I wanna
What I, what, what, what I'm going to
Do about my destiny
I say no, no, nobody's telling me just
What, what, what I wanna do, do
I'm so fed up with people telling me to be
Someone else but me (Action!)

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I don't need nobody telling me just what I wanna
What I, what, what, what I'm going to
Do about my destiny
I say no, no, nobody's telling me just
What, what, what I wanna do, do
I'm so fed up with people telling me to be
Someone else but me

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

Jamie Roll:
One of her VERY best songs ever, in my eyes. Perfection really. As a kid, this clip helped me figuring out my confidence in my body. Her feminine self here, her free-self kinda dancing, her sexiness, it all really helped me out. Brit is a one-in-a-lifetime artist. No one like her.

JUANA lorenzo
JUANA lorenzo:
Yo estoy sobreprotegida ,si soy la única pero me gusta q me cuiden.
She molted, singing "I know I may be young, but I've got feelings too". She is no longer lonely or innocent . Britney created the era. But she is crying now. I hope she will be free.

"My loneliness is killing me"
"I'm not that innocent"
"My loneliness ain't killing me no more"
"I know I may be young, but I've got feelings too"
"my life has been so overprotected"
"She is so lucky, but why does she cry?"


"I don't need nobody telling me just what I wanna
What I, what, what, what I'm gonna do about my destiny"
Damn l honestly feel bad for the younger generation not being able to witness Britney Spears in her prime .Wish there were more artist like her today.❤️❤️❤️❤️

Syah Nazmi:
It is depressing to learn that one of the biggest Popstars in the world receives so many hates & being judged all her life.
I'm glad that people are now taking notice of her, what has been burdening her all her life.
We see her as that top notch Superstar but she is actually trapped, tired.
She has been trying to tell us for years and we thought it was just for entertainment

Blistering Satire:
Britney Spears was just so perfect, she's got everything, the face, the body, the moves, the voice.. the full packagae of a legendary artist. But she was too sweet for this music industry. And many jealous people wanted her down, just like how they wanted MJ down.

Britney was the most followed female artist in the late 90s and early 2000s.
Everyday they talked about her, making money using her name. I hope she's fine coz Britney means my happy teenage years. I have always liked her, she's got the cutest face ever.

I feel like this woman NEVER had the chance on CHOOSING her life. She was pushed and forced to do so many uncomfortable projects from the adults taking accountability for her who clearly failed miserably. Look what they did to her. I love her so much I swear I feel like crying whenever I think about what she has and STILL is going through !
One of the most beautiful woman to walk on this earth . She's stunning
