The director of Framing Britney Spears responded to the singer’s criticisms about the documentary, explaining that she “completely understands” her complaints.
As you recall, Britney posted her different dance performances in a single video and gave an overview of the year 2021. Although she started her statement by saying that 2021 is a better year than 2020, she reacted to Hulu’s documentary titled ‘Framing Britney Spears’ about her life.
The singer was angry for shedding light on the controversial conservatism cause involving himself and her father in the documentary and criticized these documentaries for being so hypocritical.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, director Samantha Stark, and senior story editor Liz Day addressed the criticism of the singer and Spears’ response.
Here’s what the director said:
“While we were making the film, we talked a lot about re-traumatizing Britney and her family by showing these moments. Part of the reason it’s called Framing Britney Spears is there are these still-photo frames that were humiliating to her. We thought it was really important to pull outside the frame because so many people had all these assumptions based on one frame, one still image that they saw.
In the end, we felt like we had to put some of them in because we wanted people to have more context. We always tried to have her talk back to [the paparazzi] if we could. She 100 percent deserves to be mad that we’re still looking at those photos, because it’s ridiculous that we’re still looking at them, and they shouldn’t have been there in the first place. As much as I want to explain myself to her, I totally understand where she’s coming from.”
