What happened to Britney Spears? The "Framing Britney Spears" documentary, which aired on Feb. 5 on FX (and is subsequently streaming on Hulu), answers that question and so much more.
It's the latest of "The New York Times Presents" series of investigative documentaries, and it delves deep into the pop princess' legal battles with her father. Ever since 2008, she was placed under a legal conservatorship (typically reserved for the elderly), giving her father complete control over her own finances and career because she was deemed incapable of doing so.
But is Britney Spears really unfit to take care of herself, or is this just another example of sexism in an industry already facing serious #MeToo scrutiny? The answer to that question takes various twists and turns throughout the documentary, addressing issues of sexism and classism that ultimately brought down Spears in the eye of the media, the public and even herself.
