The Princess of Pop took to social media to finally address whether she's watched Framing Britney Spears, the jolting documentary that premiered last February on Hulu. Here are all of the details on what the icon had to say.

On Tuesday, March 30, Britney opened up about the media attention she's received throughout her life and how the Framing Britney Spears film made her feel. "My life has always been very speculated ... watched ... and judged really my whole life !!!" the pop legend wrote on Instagram, adding that she dances to music by rockstar Steven Tyler every night to feel "human and alive."

"I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people!!!" the 39-year-old continued. "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!!!! As the world keeps on turning and life goes on we still remain so fragile and sensitive as people!!!"

The starlet said that while she didn't watch the entire documentary, "From what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in ... I cried for two weeks and well .... I still cry sometimes!!!! I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy ... love ... and happiness!!!! Every day dancing brings me joy !!! I'm not here to be perfect ... perfect is boring ... I'm here to pass on kindness!!!!!"

Along with the vulnerable and heartfelt caption, Brit blessed our Insta feeds with her dancing (which will always be perfect to us). The post marks the first time the singer discussed the bombshell documentary. Back in February, Spears uploaded a throwback video of herself performing Toxic in 2018 with a more cryptic message.

Britney said that while she loves being on stage, she's learning to be a "normal person." The pop icon added, "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." Framing Britney Spears is available for streaming on Hulu and FXNow.
