Watch: Britney Spears shares new dance video after saying she will not perform under father's control
Britney Spears has shared a new dance video after saying she will not perform on stage while still under her father's control.
The 39-year-old pop superstar is engaged in a legal battle over a conservatorship that has overseen her life and career since 2008.
Spears has been trying to remove her father, Jamie, from control over her life. She told a court in Los Angeles that she wants him charged with conservatorship abuse.
She said the conservatorship, which stops her from building a family, has “killed” her dreams.
The video, posted on Instagram, shows Spears, who is dressed in a red crop top and green shorts, dancing to the Billie Eilish track Bad Guy.
She captioned the video: “May the Lord wrap your mean ass up in joy today …. PS RED!!!!!
“Pssss … this is Bad Guy part 2 … same song new dance… if you don’t like it … don’t watch it!!!!!”
It comes after she previously said she would rather perform at home than on stage in Las Vegas while she is still in the conservatorship.
In an Instagram post over the weekend, she wrote: “For those of you who choose to criticise my dancing videos … look I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think!!!!
“I’ve done that for the past 13 years … I’d much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas where some people were so far gone they couldn’t even shake my hand and I ended up getting a contact high from weed all the time … which I didn’t mind but it would have been nice to be able to go to the mother f****** spa!!!!
“And no I’m not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years and begging to put my new music in my show for MY fans … so I quit !!!!
Spears went on to say that she did not like that her sister “showed up at an awards show and performed my songs to remixes”.
She said her “so-called support system” had “hurt” her “deeply” and all she had left was her hope.
The singer also noted how documentaries about her life kept bringing up “humiliating moments from the past”, continuing: “I’m way past all that and have been for a long time.”
