Britney Spears is reportedly considering sharing “her side of the story” with Winfrey, as the #FreeBritney movement has taken centre stage following the New York Times-produced documentary, Framing Britney Spears.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Spears has been grateful to see the outpouring of support from her fans, with the Hulu series documenting in detail her legal conservatorship, helmed by her father Jamie Spears, as well as the intense media scrutiny and negative treatment the pop star received throughout her career, especially as a teenager.
Reports say Spears has been inspired to possibly open up about her life “sometime soon”, potentially turning to Oprah for the task.
“Britney has considered speaking out about her past, mostly because she doesn’t feel others should tell her story,” a source told ET. “She’s always hated doing interviews but if she ever takes that step, Oprah would most likely be her first choice. At this point, there is no plan in the works for her to do an interview but when she does, there will be steps Britney would need to take before speaking out.”
The source added that Spears has been encouraged by the fans. “Britney has been much happier lately and those closest to her feel it’s because she’s received such tremendous support from her fans,” said the source. “The release of the documentary has inspired an outpouring of more love than ever. While she hasn’t been able to make changes to her conservatorship, she’s received millions of messages from fans on social media and she feels far more understood.”
The possibility of Oprah taking on an interview with Britney has been backed by Twitter, with fans suggesting the sit down after watching Meghan and Harry’s recent segment.
Britney is yet to publicly comment on a potential interview, so only time will tell if fans will finally get the answers they’re looking for.
