Sharing a video of her performing Toxic at New Years Rockin' Eve ball in 2018, Britney wrote: "Can't believe this performance of Toxic is from three years ago !!! I'll always love being on stage .... but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ..... I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life!!!!

"Each person has their story and their take on other people's stories!!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!!!

"Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person's life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens."

The doc is part of The New York Times Presents docuseries - hosted on US television channel FX and FX On Hulu - and provides an insight into the pop singer's conservatorship.

It comes as Britney has been under her father's conservatorship since 2008, following hospitalisation for her declining mental health.

While the court ruled - when Britney was just 26 - that the conservatorship was supposed to be temporary, Britney is still under her father's control 13 years later. Now 39, she has been asking repeatedly for her freedom.

Just last year, Britney asked that her father be removed as the co-conservator of her estate, even going as far to say that she would no longer be performing while he was in control of her career.

Defending his right to his daughter's conservatorship, Britney's dad, James, said as it was upheld: "I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her or my family."

He later told CNN he was "protecting" his daughter from "those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her".

Meanwhile, this week, Britney's boyfriend, Sam Asghari, branded her father a "total d*ck" in a new scathing statement.

Addressing recent criticism of Britney's father, Sam said: "Now it's important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way."

In the statement - posted on his Instagram Stories, the 27-year-old went on: "In my opinion Jamie is a total d**k."
