By Carly Stern For Dailymail. Britney Spears fans are convinced that the pop star is secretly behind the new New York Times documentary about her conservatorship — or at the very least, she's known about it and has been cleverly promoting it for months. Britney Spears fans are convinced that the pop star is secretly behind the new New York Times documentary about her conservatorship. The documentary goes on to show how, at the height of her fame, she was swarmed and harassed by paparazzi, who would follow her into stores, wait outside bathrooms, and surround her car. It also reexamines Britney's 'breakdown' in — when she infamously shaved her head and attacked a paparazzo's car with an umbrella — framing it as the inevitable result of the stalking and harassment she faced.

In an effective new documentary, the difficult life of a pop star is examined from family struggles to the toll of being at the mercy of the media. Adam Streisand, a Los Angeles-based lawyer who specializes in conservatorship arrangements, recalls in the film a meeting with Spears at the Beverly Hills Hotel immediately after her involuntary psychiatric hold in January — an event heavily documented by paparazzi at the time — in which the singer reportedly accepted the conservatorship on one condition: that the conservator not be her father. Yet the effect of synthesis — a bottomless well of evidence distilled and arranged in one place, with poignant commentary from Times cultural critics — is nonetheless revelatory. The film is another notch in a string of slow-rolling, ever-expanding reconsiderations of American celebrity culture, and particularly the female tabloid figures of the 90s and aughts, one facilitated by the larger MeToo retelling of sex, power and the spectra of traumas faced by women, partly by the simple passage of time. From films such as the Oscar-winning OJ: Made in America to Lorena Bobbitt , such revision relies less on new information than simply staring hard enough at the existing record.
Britney Spears: The horrifying, look-away moments of a pop star’s life
By Ross Mcdonagh For Dailymail. There were a lot of crimes committed against Britney Spears on Saturday night — the Lifetime movie itself chief among them. But the one that might surprise fans the most is when the sex tape she supposedly made with Justin Timberlake got stolen.
The one-off programme mainly focused on the controversial conservatorship the pop star, now 39, has been locked into since - but also looked in depth and the misogynistic culture Britney faced throughout her career. The documentary shone a spotlight on behaviour that was accepted in the early aughts but would definitely not be allowed to fly now, such as Justin Timberlake disclosing on national radio that he had taken Britney's virginity, and Diane Sawyer's jaw-dropping interview in which she made Britney break down in tears. However, it was a clip from a episode of American gameshow Family Feud the Stateside equivalent of Family Fortunes which left some Britney fans entirely irate - you can see a clip from the doc below. Airing in after her well-documented mental breakdown, in which she shaved her head and then attacked a paparazzo, host John O'Hurley asked: "Name something Britney Spears has lost over the last year.
