Britney Spears is finally speaking out after the release of the The New York Times Presents documentary Framing Britney Spears.

The documentary follows the singer's rise to stardom, the intense scrutiny from the press, her subsequent struggle with her mental health in the early 2000s, and the conservatorship battle she's been in ever since as her fight for her freedom continues.

The latest in the court proceedings saw her officially request Jodi Montgomery take over her conservatorship from her father, Jamie Spears.

Now, in a new dance video, the singer is getting candid about recent events. "I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people!!! It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I've always been so judged... insulted... and embarrassed by the media... and I still am till this day!!!! [sic]" she says.

"I didn't watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in ... I cried for two weeks and well .... I still cry sometimes!!!!"

She adds: "I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy ... love ... and happiness!!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I'm not here to be perfect ... perfect is boring ... I'm here to pass on kindness."
