Following her tearful statement last week about the condition of her conservatorship, Britney Spears asked photographers to stop snapping photographs that “distort” her body on Tuesday.
Spears, who is presently on vacation in Maui, Hawaii, claimed she has been dealing with paparazzi.
“So now that I’m in Maui, things are a little hectic… the paparazzi know where I am, and it’s not pleasant!!!! It’s difficult to get anywhere because these amusing faces constantly appearing to take my photo” She expressed herself on Instagram.
“Not only do they capture my photo,” she said, “but they deform my physique and tamper with the image, which is embarrassing.”
“I realize my physique isn’t ideal, but I don’t look anything like they depict me to be. It’s impolite and demeaning, so paps, please F**K YOU AND F**K OFF!!!!”
Spears’ statement was accompanied by a little video in which she explained “Do’s and Don’ts” for photographers, admirers, and “anyone in (her) space.”
She added a film of herself boldly walking down a beach while wearing a red bikini and a blue surgical face mask in the video.
“This is my body, so quit tampering with and manipulating my photos to the point of embarrassment,” she stated.
Spears’ video finished with a mass of people singing along to her famous song “Oops!… I Did It Again.”
She commented, “This is what fans and paparazzi should be doing instead!”
Spears opened out about her conservatorship, which she has been under since her public breakdown in 2008, on June 23. The conservatorship scenario has been “traumatizing,” Spears told a probate judge.
She said, “I’ve been in shock.”
“I’m traumatized, and while you can fake it until you make it, I’m telling you the truth now. OK. I’m not pleased with myself. I’m having trouble sleeping. I’m enraged to the point of madness, and I’m despondent. Every day, I weep, and the reason I’m telling you this is that I don’t understand how the state of California can have all of this documented in court records since the day I arrived and do nothing.”
“I just want my life back,” she told a Los Angeles probate judge on Wednesday.
The next day, Spears sent an Instagram post to her fans and followers, explaining that the fairy-tale existence she seemed to live on social media was not genuine.
“I apologize for acting as though everything was fine for the previous two years… Because I was embarrassed to reveal what had occurred to me, I did it out of pride” she penned.
