Britney Spears has taken to Instagram to give her honest opinion on the recent documentaries about her life.

In the post, which she shared to her Instagram feed on Monday (May 3), Britney said; "So many documentaries about me this year with other people's takes on my life... what can I say… I’m deeply flattered!”

But, she then went on to open up about her real feelings on the attention, saying "These documentaries are so hypocritical… they criticize the media and then do the same thing."

While we don't know which documentaries she is referring to specifically, her comments come just days after the release of the BBC2 documentary, The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship, which was released over the weekend on BBC iPlayer.

"Why highlight the most negative and traumatizing times in my life from forever ago?" she said in the post. "I don’t know y’all but I’m thrilled to remind you all that although I've had some pretty tough times in my life... I've had waaaayyyy more amazing times."

She then added that "unfortunately" she thinks "the world is more interested in the negative."

Britney ended the caption with a list of positive things she’s looking forward to, including summer holidays.

Earlier in the year, The New York Times released their own documentary titled, Framing Britney Spears. Following its release, Britney revealed on her Instagram that she had "cried for two weeks" over it.

"I didn't watch the documentary," she wrote on Instagram, "but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in."

Earlier this year, streaming giant Netflix revealed they're also working on a Britney Spears documentary, following the gaining momentum of the Free Britney movement surrounding her conservatorship battle.
