This year, both the NYT and BBC have aired documentaries about Britney's life.
In an Instagram post, the singer said both documentaries were "so hypocritical."
She said the productions recreated the media behavior they were attempting to criticize.
Britney Spears criticized the two recent documentaries about her life, mental health struggles, and conservatorship battle for replicating the negative media behavior that they attempt to criticize in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday.
In February, The New York Times and Hulu co-produced "Framing Britney Spears," which explored the toll fame and invasive media attention took on Spears' life and career. The documentary also refocused attention on Spears' ongoing conservatorship battle with her father and the #FreeBritney movement that believes the arrangement has trapped the singer against her will.
And earlier this week, the BBC premiered their own investigation into Spears' life titled "The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship."
"So many documentaries about me this year with other people's takes on my life ... what can I say … I'm deeply flattered !!!!" Spears wrote at the beginning of the post. "These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing."
"Damn I don't know y'all but I'm thrilled to remind you all that although I've had some pretty tough times in my life I've had waaaayyyy more amazing times in my life and unfortunately my friends...I think the world is more interested in the negative!!!!" the post continued.
"I mean...isn't this supposed to be a business and society about THE FUTURE ???? Why highlight the most negative and traumatizing times in my life from forever ago ???? I mean DAMN."
Later in the post, Spears appears to directly address recent reports that she is not in control of her social media accounts - a claim that originated from her former makeup artist, Billy Brasfield, who is also featured in the BBC's documentary.
"PSSSS I don't actually talk to Billy B AT ALL so I'm honestly very confused!!! This is my Instagram!!!! PSSSSS no paparazzi guy … I didn't want you and your crew following me around!!!!" she wrote.
After the release of Hulu and the NY Times' documentary in February, Spears took to Instagram to say she felt "embarrassed" but had yet to watch the documentary.
Neither The New York Times nor the BBC was able to interview Spears. The singer hasn't taken part in a TV interview since 2008. Earlier this year, after the ratings success of Oprah Winfrey's interview with Harry and Meghan, it was reported that Spears is weighing up whether to sit down for her own Oprah special.
Next month, the singer will make a rare appearance at a Los Angeles court where she will address the judge on the matter of her conservatorship. The singer is petitioning to have her father, Jamie Spears, removed from her management team entirely.
