Britney Spears 'cried for 2 weeks' after New York Times documentary

Britney Spears has broken her silence.

The pop star posted on Instagram to comment on "Framing Britney Spears," the recent documentary about her from The New York Times, writing that while she hasn't actually watched it, "from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in." Spears also said that she "cried for two weeks" over the documentary, and "I still cry sometimes."

"It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I've always been so judged ... insulted ... and embarrassed by the media ... and I still am till this day," she wrote.

"Framing Britney Spears" examined both Spears' conservatorship court battle and past media coverage of her. It was supportive of Spears and critical of the way she was treated, leading Justin Timberlake to apologize for times when "my actions contributed to the problem." For Spears, though, it sounds like the release of the documentary itself may have ended up being a bit, well, toxic. Brendan Morrow
