Oops, we did it again: the #FreeBritney movement - along with the Princess of Pop herself - just welcomed perhaps their biggest win yet. After a 13-year battle, Britney Spears is finally free from her conservatorship!! From her heartfelt Instagram reveal to the worldwide celebration it called for, we've got all the tea.

On Friday, November 12, Britney took to the 'gram to first announce the big news. "Best day ever," she confessed. As of November 12, "the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required," as Judge Brenda Penny revealed in the latest court hearing. Major, we know. And we weren't the only ones freaking out over Brit's latest win.

"I love my fans so much it's crazy," Spears proudly revealed in the post. "I think I'm gonna cry the rest of the day. Praise the Lord." Sure enough, 13 years, several court hearings, and one loyal fandom later, the Princess of Pop is finally back on her throne. And we couldn't be happier. But where does she go from here?

According to her attorney Mathew Rosengart, the answer is quite clear: "What's next for Britney, and this is the first time this could be said for about a decade, is up to one person: Britney," he proudly announced before hundreds of fans outside the California courthouse. In other words? This ending is only the beginning.

As her attorney continued to explain, he's helped her set up a position "to succeed," no matter where her next chapter takes her. "We have a safety net in place for Britney, both on the personal side and on the financial side," Rosengart assured. "But Britney, as of today, is a free woman, and she's an independent woman."

"The rest, with her support system, will be up to Britney," he finished. And we most certainly stan. While only time will tell where Brit opts to go from here, you can bet we'll be tagging along every step of the way. Until then, stay tuned. (And, um, all those in favor of making November 12 a national holiday, say I?)
