Britney Spears has revealed she was brought to tears by the recent documentary about her life and conservatorship arrangements.

The critically-acclaimed New York Times documentary took an inside look at the iconic singer’s rise to fame, her mid-2000’s struggles, and the #FreeBritney social media movement.

The 39-year-old said she had "cried for two weeks" following its broadcast.

Breaking her silence over “Framing Britney Spears”, a documentary about her life, pop star Britney Spears has said that she “cried” for two weeks as she felt “embarrassed” by the light it put her in.

"My life has always been very speculated... watched... and judged really my whole life !!!" Spears told her 29 million followers in a message posted on Tuesday.

The singer said she did not watch Framing Britney Spears in its entirety but was upset by the parts she did see.

"I didn't watch the documentary, but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in," the pop star wrote on Instagram.

The post is her first direct comment on “Framing Britney Spears”, which focused on her life and mental health issues.

The statement was accompanied by a video of the singer dancing and playing air guitar to Aerosmith's hit Crazy.

Britney Spears wrote the following on Instagram...
