Britney’s Instagram

The squabbles must have started early on,

When money rolled in at alarming rates

And then the world all watched as Britney sank,

Wondering what would happen next, how the story ends.

But thirteen years was far too long

And what went on behind the scenes, none of us will know.

But tragic fallouts played out on the internet

Are painful for the rest of us, those that sang

#freebritney outside courtrooms, singing Baby

In a passionate plea for everyone to love,

But money wins every single time, and yet another

Family crumbles in faithless dust.

I grew up to Britney Spears and I was so happy for her when I found out that her conservatorship had been removed. I think that like many people, I thought that would be the end of the story. I thought that would be her happily ever after.

However, if you follow her on Instagram, your heart can’t help but break. It seems that the family fighting is just rumbling on louder than ever. And the most painful factor in all of it appears to be the publication of her sister’s memoir.

I don’t know the ins and outs of what has happened, but like so many others, I’ve felt the pain of a family disintegrating around me. I can only imagine how awful it must be to have it play out publicly.

I do worry that she doesn’t have anyone near her who truly looks out for her and watching the rants on Instagram feels physically painful. I remember when I was a teenager, watching her on stage and seeing her in magazines with Justin and thinking that she had everything. Now, I hope that I never have to suffer anything near what she has.

Take care Britney.

Much Love

    You have a point, Rachel. No matter how one feels about Britney Spears, her music, and so on, it’s terrible to have a family disintegrating. It’s even worse when it happens in public, where strangers chime in with their opinions, and where one is fair game for judgement, online trolls, and more. Regardless of who said what or did what or…. , it’s terrible to have it all out there for all to see.
