Britney Spears took to Instagram to remind fans that she has no plans to perform as long as her father Jamie Spears is her conservator.

Britney Spears reiterated that she would not be performing on stage again until her father is handling her conservatorship. 

On Sunday, Spears took to Instagram to remind fans that she has no plans to perform as long as her father Jamie Spears is her conservator and even slammed trolls who have been criticising her social media dance videos.

Taking to her Instagram handle, Britney just laid her terms quite clearly (again) with a warning shot to impatient haters. 

A few social media users have been mocking her over the dance videos she has been posting in recent years, which she often shoots in her living room. 

Some even commented that they would rather watch her do the steps on stage. To which Britney said, "For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos ... look I`m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think!! I`ve done that for the past 13 years ..."

Britney had earlier announced her decision of not performing again until her father Jamie Spears will handle her estate as a conservator. Now, with this post, she has doubled down on the decision by reminding her followers that she will stay firm on her decision.

In her court hearing, Britney had stated that while she performed in a Las Vegas residency, the people running her conservatorship controlled just about every aspect of it, right down to her wardrobe, makeup, dance moves and song selection- which the Grammy-winning singer had an issue with. She even admitted that the songs she performed to were remixes as opposed to her original songs (old and new) in their pure form.

Britney also took a shot at her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, writing, "I don`t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes!!!!! My so-called support system hurt me deeply!!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams ..."

Britney was referring to a handful of times where her sister has worked `Oops` into some of her own original songs for smaller shows- but more specifically, it seems when Jamie Lynn and other pop singers paid tribute to Britney during the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards with a mash-up/medley.

The songstress concluded the post by talking about hope, and her desire to hold out hope that she can get her life back, despite people apparently telling her otherwise. She also added, if anyone doesn`t like her dancing or fanciful wishes of breaking free from the conservatorship, then unfollow her.

Britney was first placed under a conservatorship, overseen in part by her father Jamie, back in 2008, following a series of public incidents and hospitalisations. She asked Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny to terminate the conservatorship on June 28. While her legal battle continues, it recently took a turn in her favour, when she was allowed to appoint her own attorney.
