How did we get here? How did one of the world’s most influential and successful pop stars end up losing control of her own life?
Unable to make decisions about her finances, day-to-day tasks or even her own health...but at the same time still performing on stages around the world and drawing in millions of dollars.
Britney Spears has been under the conservatorship of her once-estranged father for well over a decade. And as the world asks why, we're digging deeper into the factors which lead Britney to where she is today.
Are the media to blame? Is it the machine of the music business? Her own family? Or perhaps is it us who are the problem?
