In a furious online post, Britney Spears has voiced her concerns over paparazzi who take pictures and "distort" her body.
Spears, who is currently holidaying in Hawaii, took to social media to share a video alongside a long caption expressing her frustration with fans and paparazzi. The video, which included a mix of words and videos, read, "DOs and DONT'S, If you're a pap, fan or ANYONE in my space … Don't talk to me while I'm texting. It's rude …. This is my body!!! So stop messing with my pics and editing them to the point where it's embarrassing!"
"This is what fans and paps should be doing instead!" she added, showcasing a Pride parade of people dancing to "Oops!…I Did It Again."
The pop star went into more detail in her caption, "So being here in Maui is pretty crazy now … the paps know where I am and it's really not fun !!!! It's pretty hard going anywhere cause these silly faces keep popping up to take my picture," she wrote.

"But not only do they take my picture … they distort my body and mess with the image and it's embarrassing!!!!! I know my body is not perfect but I definitely do NOT look like how they portray me. It's rude and it's mean so paps kindly F**K YOU AND F**K OFF !!!!"
As Spears confessed to a court last week, that she has been putting on a front on social media, fans were quick to question the validity of the video post, suggesting she was not the one behind the post, "Who in the world thinks britney spears got behind a computer to put together a powerpoint while in maui?" One person asked.
Others also commented, "This isn't her" and "Something's off".
In the blistering testimony during her conservatorship hearing last week, Spears alleges she was kept in a drugged state, has no control over reproductive matters and has been barred from letting the public know the "harmful" truth of her situation.
"He loved the control he had over me, one hundred thousand percent," Spears said of her father Jamie Spears, who has been in control of her finances since 2008 under her controversial conservatorship arrangement.
Speaking firmly to the judge by audio link in a passionate plea to end her 13-year conservatorship, the anger over her situation was palpable. Her tone was in stark contrast to the bubbly and childlike persona she presents online via energetic dance routines and catwalks in her LA mansion.
Her carefree, quirky online presence had been her only real contact with fans since she announced an "indefinite hiatus" on her career in January 2019.
