Britney Spears is finally speaking out.

Following the headline-making release of the new Hulu and New York Times–produced documentary, Framing Britney Spears, fans, celebrities, and peers of the pop star alike have been calling to "Free Britney." Digging into her more than 12-years-long conservatorship, which grants her father, Jamie Spears, full control over her personal and professional life and finances, the film has garnered a wave of support for the pop star. Now, Britney has taken to Instagram to address the world's concern.

In her statement, Britney does not outright address the new documentary or reignited social media movement, but she does address performing on the big stage. The mention is significant, because in recent court documents, Britney revealed via her lawyer that she will not work again until her father is removed as the head of her conservatorship.

Sharing a throwback clip of a performance of her hit song "Toxic" at her former Las Vegas residency, she wrote, "Can't believe this performance of Toxic is from 3 years ago !!! I'll always love being on stage .... but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ..... I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life !!!!"

She continued, "Each person has their story and their take on other people's stories !!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives 🌹🌸🌷🌼!!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person's life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens 📷✨ !!!!"
