Where to Watch ‘Framing Britney Spears’
The New York Times’ documentary about the pop star chronicles her rise to fame to her being placed under a conservatorship
The early 2000s was a bad time for young women—especially young women in the public eye, due in large part to the times’ ruthless tabloid culture.
Even Britney Spears, one of the biggest pop stars of the time, was not immune to the public’s harsh, cruel scrutiny after suffering through a mental health crisis in 2007, at which time she’d only been 25 years old.
This has resulted in her being placed a conservatorship that is still in action today, sparking in the #FreeBritney movement that has been gaining traction for a few years now.
All this and more is covered in the latest installment of The New York Times Presents: a heartbreaking and thoughtful hour-long dive into the pop star’s life, from her rise to fame to her current situation.
Framing Britney Spears is available on Hulu.
