American singer Britney Spears has received her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine in her home state of California.

The singer received the vaccine alongside her boyfriend - 27-year-old personal trainer Sam Asghari. In a post captioned, “Got the COVID vaccine 😳💉 …. Great success 😂 …. High-five 🖐🏻 !!!!!!,” she shared their experience on her Instagram.

In a video posted to her 29 million followers, the couple spoke about what it was like. Asghari asked Spears: “Alright, so what did you think of the vaccine?”

Spears said: “The people on the internet said it was really, really, bad, it was like a bullet going through your arm.

“It was nothing. I felt nothing. I’m fine and I hope I continue to stay fine.”

Spears and her private life have been under the scrutiny of the media and fans recently over an ongoing conservatorship battle and a new documentary that claims to shed light on the singer’s life behind the scenes.

In 2008, following a public breakdown, Spears was placed under a court-ordered conservatorship, which gave her father Jamie Spears legal guardianship over his adult daughter.

The New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears, about the 39-year-old’s career and conservatorship, saw fans say they believe she wants to be released from the legal arrangement.

In a statement, Spears broke her silence on the documentary weeks after it had aired, describing how it had affected her.

She wrote: “My life has always been very speculated… watched… and judged really my whole life!

“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 ’til this day.

“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.

“I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy… love… and happiness.”

Members of the fan-driven movement #FreeBritney, who want Spears released from her conservatorship, claim the statement was written by someone else.
