The New York Times' Framing Britney Spears was released on Hulu over the weekend, spurring a renewed interest in the singer's life, her conservatorship under her father's control, and the scrutiny she has suffered at the hands of the media.

The documentary focused on the Free Britney Movement, a fan-led campaign supporting Britney's personal and financial freedom from her father, Jamie Spears, but also touched on her relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and the public reaction to her mental health issues.

In a post shared to Instagram, Britney appeared to address the documentary, writing that "no matter what we think we know abut a person's life, it is nothing compared to the actual person's life".

Sharing a video of a more recent performance of her iconic hit 'Toxic', the star wrote: "Can’t believe this performance of 'Toxic' is from 3 years ago!!! I’ll always love being on stage... but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person.

"I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life!! Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories!!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!!!

"Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person's life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens."

This comes after Britney's partner of four years, Sam Asghari, spoke out about the documentary earlier this week, saying that he is looking forward to a "normal future together".

"I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves," he told PEOPLE.

"I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together."

Asghari later added that he thinks Britney's father Jamie Spears "is a dick".

Writing on Instagram, he said:  "Now it's important for people to understand that I have no respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way.

"In my opinion Jamie is a total dick. I won't be going into details because I've always respected our privacy but at the same time I didn't come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom."
