“It was like sex trafficking”: Britney Spears pleads for freedom from toxic father

Published

on

Superstar Britney Spears has addressed a US court, discussing her controversial conservatorship that has sparked a global movement.

Spears spoke for around 20 minutes, reading from a letter and saying she just wants her life back.

She continued saying “a lot has happened since two years ago, the last time I was in court. I haven’t been back to court because I didn’t feel I was heard”.

It has also been revealed that Britney was forced to perform, given no privacy and was made to use birth control, take medication and attend therapy sessions against her will.

Britney says the drug she was forced to take can make people become mentally impaired if used for longer than five months.

From the letter, she reads “I felt drunk, I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything. They had me with six different nurses.”

This is the first time Spears has addressed a court since her attorney filed to suspend her father as conservator of Spear’s estate. 

Jamie Spears has been Britney’s conservator since 2008 following a spate of personal battles, which were often played out in the public eye.

In regards to the role her father plays, Britney says “the control he had to hurt his own daughter… he loved it. I worked seven days a week … it was like sex trafficking. I didn’t have a credit card, cash or my passport.”

Spears added “anything I had to do, my dad was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing.”

Published

Netflix Introduces Changes to Subscription Model, Academy Award Nominations Spark Cinematic Buzz, and the Doomsday Clock Continues its Ominous Ticking.

Netflix is set to discontinue its ad-free Basic subscription in select countries, commencing with Canada and the UK in Q2 2024.

This strategic shift introduces a significant price increase for the baseline entry, signalling potential adjustments to Netflix’s global pricing structure.

Simultaneously, the 96th edition of the Academy Award nominations has stirred cinematic debates, with the prevailing question being whether the upcoming season will be dominated by “Barbie” or “Oppenheimer.” These contrasting narratives set the stage for a fierce competition, highlighting the diverse and compelling offerings in this year’s film industry.

Beyond the realm of entertainment, the Doomsday Clock, a symbolic representation of the likelihood of a human-made global catastrophe, continues its ominous countdown.

Maintained since 1947 by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the clock serves as a metaphor for threats arising from unchecked scientific and technological advances. As global tensions, environmental challenges, and technological risks persist, the ticking of the Doomsday Clock serves as a poignant reminder of the urgent need to address multifaceted threats to humanity.

Adidas faces potential $320M Yeezy shoe write-off post-Kanye split

Published

on

Adidas is contemplating a significant financial blow as it considers writing off $320 million worth of Yeezy shoes following its separation from music and fashion icon Kanye West.

The sportswear giant’s decision to sever ties with West’s Yeezy brand has left a mountain of unsold merchandise, threatening to dent the company’s balance sheet.

The partnership between Adidas and Kanye West, which began in 2013, had been immensely successful, with Yeezy shoes becoming a highly sought-after fashion statement.

However, recent controversies and disagreements between West and Adidas prompted the sportswear company to distance itself from the celebrity designer.

The massive inventory of Yeezy shoes now presents a dilemma for Adidas, as it grapples with finding a solution to deal with the surplus stock. A $320 million write-off could significantly impact the company’s financial performance in the short term.

Adidas is currently exploring various options, including discounting, donating, or repurposing the unsold inventory to mitigate the financial hit.
