It appears Britney Spears is looking to celebrate her two years post-conservatorship with a cute little project centered around the drama. It’s old news that Britney endured a 13-year-long conservatorship under her dad James Spears and attorney Andrew M. Wallet. While the arrangement supposedly aimed at keeping her grounded following a public mental health crisis in 2008, the crooner claimed it kept her in shackles all those years. She has addressed those daunting years in several interviews and social media posts since then, accusing her conservators of mistreating her. After a heated conservatorship battle, Britney finally broke free. But living in the wake of the conservatorship came with its fair share of drama, including the belief that she may have seen her last days on stage.
In a slew of Instagram stories, the crooner, who recently released the single Mind Your Business with Will.i.am, teased an upcoming project. While Britney Spears did not specify the nature of this “little project on the way,” she shared lyrical details that could either pass for lines of a poem or even the lyrics of an emotional song detailing her conservatorship. The screen caption read,
“A tease for a little project on the way!!!!!! Whose readyyyyyyyyyy!!! Had to do the yyyyyyy because for some reason my sister does that on her gram!!!!! Love y’all!!!”
Britney Spears Pens New Project
Britney Spears’ Instagram stories included a slideshow featuring the lyrics of the new project, with no accompanying audio. The first lines from the poem featured an emotional world play. It read,
“In the middle or did you get ’em?/ The thieves are little/ I hey serve like skittles/ The pain no walk, we say when you talk/ The pain no walk, we say when you talk/ My feet, Jesus tell me why/ You know how I move when I’m alive.”
She proceeded to describe how “they” took her feet, demoralized her, emphasized her face, and even came for her mind. The new project also discussed how Britney Spears craved attention at her own pace and wanted so badly to have a car and get to leave the drama behind. She also emphasized how she worked 10 hours daily with no days off or time to play, or even privacy to change or shower. She then took a direct stab at her family, writing,
“And my family knows so low so low so low/My family says so/Watched me bathe, sit down behave/ We ask the questions We’re here to save you/Save me from what?/Save me from what…Edge of reason to feel alive/Insanity steals most hearts/Most cry/I should have died I’m not gone lie.”
In the lyrics, Britney also admitted she never felt normal all the while they broke her. After detailing the gruesome moments in her conservatorship, Britney Spears’ last slide created a parallel to her present-day, where she gets to feel more significant and in control, concluding the project teaser with the lyrics,
“My lighter it’s lit/It’s lit/I serve now with just spit/Significance in just spit/Or just swallow, go hollow/And follow the word.”
This isn’t the first time the star would address her years under conservatorship and the ensuing drama since breaking free. While Britney Spears has constantly shared her story on social media, this upcoming project would mark one of the few times she channeled those emotions through her art, and hopefully, into a new hit.
