  • Britney Spears’ body is together, even if her head isn’t on quite straight. The newly minted X-Factor judge posted a bikini photo of herself on Twitter and hasn’t looked this good since her “Oops!… I Did It Again” days back in the 1990s. So why is she still on lock-down?

    So what gives with her mental condition? In a shocking decision earlier this week, Judge Reva Goetz decided after a hearing to continue a conservatorship she was placed under four and a half years ago.

    Since then, father Jamie Spears, has had complete control over the 30-year-old singer’s career, personal life and finances. According reports, Britney has had enough of her father’s involvement in her personal life.

    From outward appearances, Spears is managing her life well. Yet, she’s subjected to secret court hearings where records are sealed and continues to be held under a conservatorship against her will.

    It seems extraordinary that a judge would continue to allow her father to control her personal life, especially after her accomplishments over the past year or two. She would almost have to be suicidal or a danger to herself. Is that possible?

    From outward appearances, Spears is managing well. When she started her Femme Fatale Tour last year, she looked overweight and wobbly and like she was just going through the motions. But she responded to criticism and upped her game on tour. Since then, she’s been on a roll.

    She got engaged to her long-time manager Jason Tarwick and landed a sweet deal as a judge on “X Factor,” worth a reported $15 million a season. She’s currently filming season two of the show.

    “Britney wants the conservatorship to end, it’s fine with her if it stays in place as far as her business and professional life, but she wants to call the shots when it comes to her personal life,” a “source” told gossip site radaronline.

    Spears is said to be bi-polar and manic-depressive, and not good about keeping up with her medicine, but the Judge is sitting on records in the case, which are under seal purportedly to protect her and her career.

    But such secrecy is unusual. Court records are supposed to be public for a good reason; to safeguard the rights of those who are subject to a court’s jurisdiction.

    Hearings are held in secret and records are sealed only in cases involving the most extreme circumstances, such crimes involving minors. Spears is no minor.

    But she is a money machine, worth an estimated $100 million, for those who surround–and control–her. The public, and her fans, have a right to know what’s so wrong with her that she can’t have something she clearly wants and deserves– her personal freedom.
