Britney Announces New Movie Role as First Project Since End of Her Conservatorship

“The Idol” will star Britney and will feature her on the soundtrack. This will likely be her first work as a “freed Britney” following the end of her conservatorship

Britney Spears announces first project since end of her controversial conservatorship on Instagram. “I just shot a movie called The Idol,” she wrote Tuesday, “It’s guaranteed to have hits and a lot of bright pics to put in my beautiful family’s faces.”

Britney did not give any further details about the project, however, fans linked between The Weeknd’s HBO show with the same name, that was announced just a day earlier. Co-created by Euphoria writer Sam Levinson, the Weeknd will star alongside Troye Sivan to tell the story of an emerging female pop star who falls for a cult leader.

TMZ has received info from “sources with direct knowledge” that Britney’s and The Weeknd’s Idols are not the same project.

“Our Britney sources say she’s not been asked to be a part of the HBO show, and her team is unsure as to what movie she’s referring to in her caption,” TMZ reported this morning. “Britney’s been very creative with her social media posts lately, so it’s always possible she’s producing a movie on her own at home.”

The news come two weeks after Britney was freed by a Los Angeles judge from her nearly 14-year-long conservatorship. The arrangement that governed her financial and personal affairs had long traumatized and exploited her.

For more than a decade, Britney lived a life of depression, anxiety and sleeplessness, she told the court earlier this year, squarely placing the blame on her father and conservator, 69-year-old Jamie Spears.

Spears took to social media to celebrate the judge’s decision to end her conservatorship, calling it the “best day ever”. On Instagram, she posted a photo alongside the caption “finally free”. A host of celebrities also joined in with the outpouring of support.
