BIG BIG NEWS from this weekend: BRITNEY SPEARS IS FINALLY FREE.
Britney's Conservatorship was terminated. A judge made it official on Friday saying, quote,"The court finds and determines that the conservatorship of the person and the Estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required."
There was absolute chaos outside the courthouse after it ended. Britney posted a video and said, quote, "Good God I love my fans so much it's crazy!!!"
Britney had been under the conservatorship for 13 years. Her lawyer Matthew Rosengart told the judge that a “safety net” has been put into place to protect both the personal and financial side of Brit’s affairs— but it seems like they’ll have a limited role now.
Sources say that Britney plans to sue her father and that her legal team has hired a forensic accountant to look at the past 13 years of the conservatorship. There’s also talk that she might be interested in getting back into the studio to record new music, but no plans for that have been made yet.
Last night was Adele's CBS special “Adele: One Night Only,” which also featured an interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which Adele talked about her new music, as well as the breakdown of her marriage and more.
Some revelations from the interview included:
- She said that everything was happening in real time. She said, quote, “I was writing my album while I was going through everything.”
- She said she realized she wanted a divorce when she and some friends were taking a quiz from a magazine. One question asked "What's something that no one would ever know about you?," and she revealed she wasn't happy. "It was when I made it known to my own friends who thought I was really happy that actually I'm really unhappy and they all gasped," she said, "I felt like it was from there that I was like, ‘What am I doing? What am I doing it for?’"
- Even with the divorce, she said that she believes her ex-Simon Konecki saved her life. “He came at such a moment,” she says, “the stability that him and Angelo have given me no one else would ever have been able to give me.” She added, “even now I trust him with my life.”
- Adele also talked about losing 100 pounds, the backlash she got from it. She said, quote, I was body positive then and I’m body positive now. It’s not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies. I feel bad that it’s made anyone feel horrible about themselves, but that’s not my job.”
