"Never has one person been so used and abandoned by every facet around her," Musgraves says after watching "Framing Britney Spears."
Artists from Kacey Musgraves to Hayley Williams have been encouraging their fans to watch The New York Times Presents: Framing Britney Spears, a just-released FX documentary about the pop superstar's controversial conservatorship.
Britney Spears entered into a conservatorship in 2008 after suffering a public breakdown in 2007, which gave her father, Jamie Spears, full control over his daughter's financial and personal affairs. The California Courts define a conservatorship as a judge appointing "a responsible person or organization (called the 'conservator') to care for another adult (called the 'conservatee') who cannot care for himself or herself or manage his or her own finances." Framing Britney Spears, which aired Friday on FX and Hulu, pulls back the curtain on the pop star's latest legal battles while shining a light on the #FreeBritney movement -- which has gained some A-list supporters after the doc's premiere.
Musgraves shared NYT's Instagram post on her IG Story and encouraged her 2 million followers to watch Framing Britney Spears. "Never has one person been so used and abandoned by every facet around her," the Golden Hour singer wrote. "My heart goes out to her. She has always been such an inspiration to me my whole kid/teen life. Wish she could get a re-do."
