Britney Spears’s conservatorship came to an end on November 12, after 13 years. The conservatorship was put in place in 2008, after Britney's infamous breakdown in 2007 when she shaved her head and attacked a paparazzo's car with an umbrella. The conservatorship was controlled by her father Jamie Spears and others.
After the announcement of the end of the conservatorship, Britney released a 2-minute video on her social media pages.
Here is an 8-point breakdown of what Britney Spears said:
1. In the beginning, Britney expressed joy and gratefulness over her newfound independence. She said, "I'm just grateful for each day and being able to have the keys to my car, to be able to be independent, and feel like a woman."
2. She mentioned that this was the first time she would own an ATM card and see cash.
3. The singer also thanked her fans and the #FreeBritney movement for shedding light on her situation and the alleged abuse and corruption by her conservators. Britney said, "You guys rock. My voice was muted and threatened for so long and I wasn’t able to speak up and say anything... you guys saved my life, 100%."
4. Britney went on to say that she hoped the media attention her case received will lead to reforms in the American conservatorship system. She told her 55.6 million Twitter followers, "I’m here to be an advocate for people with real disabilities and illnesses. Hopefully my story will make an impact and make some changes in the corrupt system."
5. Along with posting the same video on her Instagram, she wrote in the caption, "Honestly, it still blows my mind every day I wake up how my family and the conservatorship were able to do what they did to me," and called her situation 'dehumanising and demoralising'.

6. Britney also added that her conservators and her mother should be jailed for what they did to her. She said in her Instagram caption, "I’m not even mentioning all the bad things they did to me which they should all be in jail for... yes, including my church-going mother!!!! I’m used to keeping peace for the family and keeping my mouth shut... but not this time... I have NOT FORGOTTEN and I hope they can look up tonight and know EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN !!!!"
7. Britney gave hope to her fans that there is a possibility of her giving a tell-all interview of her conservatorship to Oprah Winfrey.
8. Britney concluded on a hopeful note, "Let’s move forward. We’re gonna have a good year and a good Christmas. Rock on!"
