We are sorry, Britney..." As if it were the catchy chorus in one of her songs, the phrase became a trending topic when the documentary Framing Britney Spears was released. In addition to famous journalists, musicians and actors, many people understood that society as a whole had contributed to the pop star being caught in a desperate situation. It was not just the press harassment. It wasn't just the paparazzi. It wasn't just misogyny in the music industry. It wasn't just her father, who most fans depict as a greedy man. An appetite for celebrity gossip undoubtedly contributed to Britney Spears being stripped of a person's most precious asset: freedom.
