Britney Posts, Then Removes, Bombshell Video About Her Family, Oprah & More
On Sunday, Spears posted 22 minutes of audio to YouTube, but she has since deleted it. In the post, she explained that she has received multiple offers to do a sit down interview and share her thoughts and her story. Even Oprah Winfrey wants to do an interview with her. According to Spears, she would be paid “lots and lots of money” if she agreed to one of these interviews, but she has declined them all. Spears explained, “I don’t want any of it. For me, it’s beyond a sit-down proper interview.”
Just because she doesn’t want to do an interview doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to use her voice, but she wants to do it her way and on her terms. She started by dropping details about her feelings and experiences during the conservatorship in the audio clip.
Spears complained about her family. Obviously, she’s not too fond of her father, Jamie Spears, who kept his daughter in the conservatorship, but she’s also unhappy with her mother, Lynn Spears, and her sister, Jamie-Lynn Spears. Spears doesn’t understand why her family didn’t help her get a lawyer and speak up for her. She said about her mother, “I feel like she could have gotten me a lawyer in literally two seconds.”
At one point, Spears considered leaving the country with a man whose name was not disclosed. She explained, “I was talking to a guy, and he wanted to just leave the country with me. We had it all set up to leave, and it was a secret relationship.” Fear of her father seems to have held her back. She explained that she told her assistant, “My biggest fear was ‘What would my dad do if I did do something wrong? What if they found me? What would they do?’ … And she looked at me and said, ‘Are you kidding me, Britney? Your dad would never do that to you.’”

Reportedly, another way that Spears plans to use her voice is by sharing her story in a book. According to Page Six, she has a $15 million book deal to tell her side of the story.
Why do you think Spears deleted the YouTube post? Do you think she will ever agree to a sit-down interview?
