Britney Spears took a bit of a break from Instagram, but she didn’t take long to return. In between all the dancing posts and art, Spears took the time to open up in one about beauty standards, as well as another part of the conservatorship that left a mark on her. Here’s what you need to know.
Britney Spears freed
So, most know the story by now. Britney Spears spent 13 years in a conservatorship that she has alledge was abusive. This has been the subject of a lot of courtroom back-and-forth as well as a social media battle with her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears.
However, despite the ongoing drama, the singer has been making the most of her freedom. She’s shared some vacation photos, signed a book deal, and is clearly doing a lot of inner work. Following her Instagram break, the singer posted a message that will surely strike a chord with a lot of people.

So, one part of her conservatorship was that her father and the team working with her were in total control of her career as well. This meant that Spears was not always happy with the end results on a project. In a recent post, she took aim at the covers for her albums over the course of the arrangement.
Said Spears, “I haven’t been shot well, though. I’ve never been more humiliated and embarrassed in my life than during the years in my conservatorship.” She went on to explain, “I had one good cover in 13 years of my conservatorship…the rest were all extremely bad. They could have at least cheated and used technology.”

What prompted this critique of her album covers? The message began with Spears talking about an celebrity who made sure to point out in a social media post about getting a facial that everything fans were seeing was all natural. Spears noted she’d met this celebrity before and thought the celebrity was beautiful. Spears said, “It was weird seeing someone like her trying to convince people she’s natural beautiful.”
Britney Spears talks surgery
The post then went on to talk about living in LA and how Spears had gone to get an opinion on breast implants. It seems the singer had opted against the procedure after all, as she said, “I will admit I play into how I look. I care, but it disgusted me when I went to that doctor’s office because guys were there getting nose jobs. Really, it’s too much.”
She continued, “I am absolutely a victim to all the societal objectifications and exploitations that women are subjected to at times.”
Lessons from Britney Spears
Ultimately, Britney Spears pointed out that the true beauty is energy. She wrote that happy people with good energy are attractive. They draw light, and we can’t agree more. There really is an obvious vibe people give off when they’re happy and genuinely good people.
She also spoke about how she took the time to embrace not caring or thinking, just doing, when making a meal. “I ate it in literally two seconds…I felt two years old with the kind of satisfaction that can only come from the wisest of the wise and I realized the damage of my thinking.”
Sounds like a great reminder to embrace the inner child and just not think too much about things. Just be and enjoy. Spears closed off the lengthy message by asking people to love themselves.
