FAME AND FORTUNE

On Wednesday, June 23, Spears was remotely patched in via phone to a Los Angeles County court. While it was standard protocol amid a seemingly never-ending pandemic, it was a medium that was particularly appropriate for a star whose life has been both so public and so remote for so many years. Instagram, after all, has been her primary mode of interaction with the wider world since her Las Vegas residency – during which she performed 248 shows over four years to sold-out audiences 4600 strong – ended on New Year’s Eve 2017. She was appearing to address the court for the first time about the havoc the conservatorship had wrought on her personal and professional lives. For 23 minutes, she commanded the courtroom’s attention – and the attention of what felt like everyone with Twitter or Slack or a pop-culture-savvy group-text chain on their smartphone. Her voice didn’t have the Disney Princess lilt her online followers were used to. Though it quaked at times, and though the judge had to ask her to slow down as she nervously barrelled through parts of her statement, her voice was resolute, commanding – and it was angry. 

As she detailed the many indignities of the unusually long and restrictive arrangement, live tweets from fans and journalists in the courtroom travelled through social media like seismic waves. One detail in particular sparked a queasy outrage: Spears has an IUD inside her body against her will and hasn’t been allowed to remove it. The literal invasiveness of that fact became an undeniable touch point not only for the #FreeBritney cause but also for an overdue reevaluation of the legal levers that control conservatorships in the US.

But beneath that shock and indignation was an undertow of sadness for Spears, that she couldn’t even enjoy the quotidian motions of an average life that many of us take for granted. Family planning was taken off the table in a profoundly violating way, yes. But so, too, were the basic building blocks most people use to construct their lives. “I want to have the real deal. I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told [that] right now, in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,” Spears said in her court statement, later adding, “All I want is to own my money, for this to end, and my boyfriend to drive me in his fucking car.”

By the time Spears logged off, the media was in a frenzy. Which wasn’t unusual. Spears does, after all, wield the digital presence that launched a thousand conspiracy theories (some, it turns out, true), controversies and tabloid stories. Meanwhile, I like to imagine that Spears herself was able to return to a small, jury-rigged oasis of normalcy, dare we say banality, that she and Asghari have quietly built within the walls of her Ventura County home.

I have to imagine it because when Asghari paints a picture of their inner life together, he mostly draws around the margins. That is understandable when what would be the normal details of any other couple’s personal life are for you potential exhibits in a long, only recently concluded legal battle. 

No, he does not volunteer his feelings about IUDgate. He made a point of saying he wouldn’t discuss the conservatorship for our interview. He also avoids using Spears’s name in any way that might make it easier to manufacture more spin, although it’s hard to tell if that’s intentional or because he’s a romantic. Asghari refers to her as “my girl”. He doesn’t share too many details, even of the sandwiches he likes to make her at home. He loves to cook, but those are Spears’s comfort food of choice (“My girl loves my sandwiches”); he doesn’t eat them (“I don’t like a lot of bread”).
