"Framing Britney Spears," a documentary that has sparked new interest in the pop star's conservatorship, has recently scored an Emmy Nomination. The New York Times and Walt Disney Co's F.X. network released "Framing Britney Spears" in February this year.

'Framing Britney Spears' has been Emmy-nominated for best documentary and best picture editing for a nonfiction program. The 74-minute documentary examines the singer's meteoric rise to fame as a teenager, the ensuing media scrutiny and her widely publicized breakdown, as well as her life under the conservatorship and a fan movement known as #FreeBritney.

The "Baby One More Time" singer had lived under a conservatorship overseen by her father since 2008 when she was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment. Last month, she told a Los Angeles court that the arrangement was abusive here, and she wanted it to end.

In an emotional statement, Spears, 39, said she believed the conservatorship was abusive. "I just want my life back," she said. "I'm not here to be anyone's slave."

"I'm traumatized. I'm not happy, I can't sleep," she said, "I'm so angry and I cry every day," she added.

"I just want my life back," "I want to end this conservatorship without being evaluated." 

"I deserve to have a life, I've worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break."

"I'm bringing this to people's attention because I don't want people to think my life is perfect because it's definitely not at all, and if you have read anything about me in the news this week... you obviously really know now it's not," she said.
