It has been thirteen years since Britney Spears was first ordered into her conservatorship. The court order placed her father, Jamie Spears, in charge of Britney’s finances and much of her personal life. And now finally, the “Oops I Did It Again” singer has reclaimed her freedom and is taking to social media to express not only her gratitude but also what’s in store next for the pop icon now that she is free.

Britney Spears took to Instagram on Tuesday to further address the ending of her conservatorship and discuss her plans with her newfound freedom. “Well let’s see, I’ve been in the conservatorship for thirteen years,” said Spears. And it’s the little things that most people don’t give a second thought to for which the singer seems most pleased to be able to do now, such as possessing her own cash and ATM card and being able to buy candles. “It’s the little things for us women but it makes a huge difference.” You can see Britney Spears discuss her newfound freedom in the video below.

Leading up to Britney Spears’ conservatorship, the singer was often the center of attention in the media following her erratic behavior during her 2007 divorce from Kevin Federline. After the divorce, Britney lost custody of her two young children and made headlines for shaving her head, leading many to question her mental state of health. Then, after multiple incidents that landed Britney Spears in a hospital for temporary psychiatric assessment rulings, her conservatorship was formed. In recent court filings, her father’s lawyer claimed the ruling was necessary to protect the star. But after a decade of unraveling through the public eye, the grueling court case ruled in the singer’s favor, and the pop star officially became a free woman this past Friday.

In the recent Instagram clip, Britney Spears also mentions sharing her story with talk show host and billionaire, Oprah Winfrey. While Oprah is quite famous for nabbing some of the most iconic and controversial interviews, it is still unclear as to whether Spears meant to confirm a future interview with the media executive, as Oprah has not confirmed anything. 

Other than blissfully enjoying the little things in life, a family might be in Britney Spears’s immediate future. During one of her conservator court sessions this past June, she announced that she would like to get married and have a baby with her boyfriend of four years, Sam Asghari. The engagement would come soon after, and now that Spears is completely free from her father, Britney announced last week with a post to Instagram that Donatella Versace would be making her bridal dress. 

While Britney Spears fans and supporters are delighted to see the singer happy and free, the biggest question on many of the minds of her fans remains: Will Britney make more music now? While Spears did make music and perform throughout the last decade, she announced a work hiatus in 2018, later citing that her conservatorship forced her into performing, even when she was sick. While Britney seems quiet on the future of her singing career, a source told Page Six that the singer may eventually return to the recording studio, but it will be on her terms this time. Whether or not the “Hit Me Baby One More Time” popstar releases new music anytime soon, many of her fans are just thankful to see Britney happy, healthy, and enjoying life.
