Kelly Rowland Talks About Why She Hasn’t Watched Britney Spears Documentary
The new documentary, Framing Britney Spears, has sparked a lot of debate online and has made even more people interested in the bizarre conservatorship situation with her father Jamie Spears.
The documentary is kinda weak, because it doesn’t have any insight from Britney herself or any of her family members. It’s a lot of speculation, but it does raise a lot of questions that need to be answered.
During a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen talked with Kelly Rowland. And since Kelly and Britney experienced fame around the same time back in the late ’90s/early 2000s, Cohen wondered if Rowland had watched the documentary.
No, I haven’t seen the Britney doc. I’m having a hard time in wanting to watch it, just because I really respect when artists actually say, ‘This is a documentary, it’s OK to watch it.’ I respect their space and their privacy and their point of view, you know what I mean?
And their story, what they feel like their story is from their brains, their hearts, their mouths in which they speak. So I kinda respect that, but everybody says that they really enjoy it, it’s great.
And that’s a fair point. We don’t know how Britney feels about this doc. Does she support it? Is it embarrassing? Is it an invasion of her privacy? Who knows. There is a chance she hasn’t even watched it.
Rowland compared the scrutiny of the press/paparazzi back in the early 2000s to how social media is now…
It is media, but now it’s social media, and social media is people. From her perspective, it was journalists and all these people in the media, but now social media is people, so people need to just be kind, period.
Ain’t that the truth. We could all stand to be a little nicer to one another.
