On November 12th, Britney Spears was officially released from the strict confines of her conservatorship after 13 long years of limited freedom. The pop icon took to Twitter yesterday to answer a few fan questions and express her deep gratitude for the #FreeBritney movement. She captioned the video, “I might as well do a hint of my thoughts here before I go and set things square on Oprah!!!!!”
Spears begins musing about what life might look like now that a judge has ruled that the conservatorship is “no longer required.” She notes her excitement over her regained independence, referencing newfound freedoms and simple pleasures such as owning an ATM card, having access to her own car keys, and being able to buy candles.

“I’m here to be an advocate for people with real disabilities and real illnesses. I’m a very strong woman, so I can only imagine what the system has done to those people. So hopefully my little story- hopefully my story will make an impact and make some changes in the corrupt system.”
With multiple documentaries showcasing the ins and outs of her abusive guardianship, the closest we’ve gotten to Spear’s first-hand account was this summer when she was heard live in court, requesting the conservatorship be terminated. During the hearing, Spears is quoted as stating, “The people who did this to me should not get away and to be able to walk away so easily.” While it has yet to be confirmed if an interview has been arranged, one can only imagine the kind of outrageous testimony Britney could divulge on a platform such as Oprah’s.
