Britney Spears Makes Confident Statement With #FreeBritney Flag

Rebecca Cukier

Britney Spears, who made history in July by finally saying "FreeBritney" on Instagram, isn't backing down amid her conservatorship battles. Or, indeed, criticism from Backstreet Boys star Brian Littrell, who's been saying the 39-year-old should be more "cautious" on social media.

On Monday, the princess of pop shared a video showing a fan flying a pink #FreeBritney flag outside their home, with a caption asking if "tooting my own horn" is "that bad???" See the drama and latest news below.

Flying #FreeBritney Flag


The video, seen below, comes amid a string of now-deleted posts showing Britney addressing her slightly-worn L.A. home and her overall situation - shortly before the weekend, the "Toxic" singer reassured fans that she's doing "way better" than she might have "anticipated."

"Geez look at that flag 🙊🤯🥺 !!!! I was like “My flag up over the American Flag !?!?” … Yes … I’m tooting my own horn 📯 .. is that bad ?????" the caption opened today. Spears then quickly defended suggestions she's been over-sharing on Instagram.

Claps Back Over Instagram Behavior

Britney, followed by 33 million and seeing her fanbase shoot up as she continues to battle 69-year-old father Jamie Spears in her 2008-commenced conservatorship, seemingly had thoughts for Brian, who told TMZ that Britney should be taking more care over what she posts.

Recent shares from Spears have seen her topless in only Daisy Dukes, with a bathroom saga during her Hawaii travels also shared as she revealed being locked into her hotel bathroom at 2 a.m.

See what she had to say after the video.

Says Fans Only Know 'The Half Of It'


Continuing, the Grammy winner said:

"I know in my previous post I said you guys know my situation but LET ME CLARIFY ... you only know half of it !!!! And for a lot of you who say I should be cautious with what I post," adding:

"I mean if you REALLY THINK ABOUT IT … with what I’ve been through I believe I been WAAAY TOO CAUTIOUS !!!! One day I will live on the edge !!!! One day 🤔💭 …"

Fans Have Her Back

The post, which comes as dad Jamie says there are "no grounds whatsoever" for his removal as conservator, quickly garnered a response. The #FreeBritney movement, known to shade Spears' posts as it alleges her Instagram is controlled by her team, is backing the blonde.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of Britney," one fan wrote, with others quickly liking the comment. Spears is also fresh from using the word "conservatorship" for the first time on Instagram, this as she detailed coping relatively well following her Hawaii break with boyfriend Sam Asghari.
