Britney Spears, the focus of the recent New York Times documentary “Framing Britney Spears,” is reportedly interested in sitting down for a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey to “tell her story.”

“Britney has considered speaking out about her past, mostly because she doesn’t feel others should tell her story,” a source told Entertainment Weekly.

“She’s always hated doing interviews, but if she ever takes that step, Oprah would most likely be her first choice,” the source added. “At this point, there is no plan in the works for her to do an interview, but when she does, there will be steps Britney would need to take before speaking out.”

The source also told Entertainment Weekly that Spears has been “much happier lately” since the release of the documentary. The source said the film has inspired an “outpouring of love” for the pop superstar.

“Britney has been much happier lately and those closest to her feel it’s because she’s received such tremendous support from her fans,” the source said. 

“The release of the documentary has inspired an outpouring of more love than ever,” the source added. “While she hasn’t been able to make changes to her conservatorship, she’s received millions of messages from fans on social media and she feels far more understood.”

Spears made headlines last month when Hulu released the documentary that chronicles her life amid a court-sanctioned conservatorship. In February, a judge ruled that Spears’s father, Jamie Spears, did not have the sole power to delegate the singer’s investments after she petitioned to have him removed as conservator last year.

While a Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied her petition, a wealth management company was appointed as co-conservator.
