#FreeBritney Rally

Fans of Britney Spears, one of the most popular pop stars in the world, performed at a Free Britney rally in response to a recent court decision involving the conservatorship over Spears. 

Britney Spears’ request to remove her father, Jamie Spears, from her conservatorship, the legal arrangement which has seen him control her life and career for more than a decade has been declined by Los Angeles superior court judge Brenda Penny. 

This has further ignited the theory which Britney fans suspect that the pop star was forced into the arrangement and claim she has been pleading for help on social media giving life to #FreeBritney. 

#FreeBritney has taken social media by storm. The term dates back to 2009, according to a New York Times report, from a fan site that disagreed with the conservatorship agreement and has gained momentum in recent years. 

The rally consisted of drag queens dressed as their icon Britney Spears and admiring fans. They attended the rally which took place at a San Antonio bar on Tuesday Nov. 10th which will be the first of ten. 

It was a bittersweet day for fans of the pop legend, who gathered at the bar holding placards reading “Free Britney, b***h” and “This conservatorship is toxic” and enjoyed more than 20 drag queens perform Britney numbers.

Organizers, “The Brit Sisters” (John Anthony and Auggie Spears), stated the rally was designed to “bring light and awareness” to Britney’s situation. 

““Britney has given us a voice when we didn’t have one,” they said. “Now it’s time we do the same for her.”

“If Britney has the capability to tours, music videos, put out albums, produce multiple fragrances and hold on to a four-year residency in Las Vegas, then she’s more than capable of making decisions for herself.”

Another rally has been set for December 16, when Britney’s attorney will return to court to fight her case.
