EP. 83 — Britney Spears and Conservatorships with Tess Barker & Babs Gray

Comedians, #freebritney activists, journalists, and podcastors Tess Barker & Babs Gray join Jameela this week to discuss all things Britney Spears and conservatorships. They discuss how having a fan-podcast about Britney’s instagram led them to learning more about Britney’s conservatorship, break down the details of the conservatorship and the consistently questionable methods which were used to keep Britney in it, explore what conservatorships are at large and why the system is so often problematic, cover why Keanu Reeves would be the perfect executor of a trust, and more. To learn more about Tess & Bab’s work reporting on Britney Spears’ conservatorship, listen to their podcast – Toxic: The Britney Spears Story.

Jameela [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil. How are you? I’m. I’m technically fine, but I am depressed. I mean, like, literally depressed and my depression comes and goes all the time you’ve watched me kind of go through a wave of like a rollercoaster over the last year and a half, and I would say I’ve made quite a lot of progress. But even when you make loads of progress, even when you have loads of therapy, you still just have really dark times and you can’t predict them and you cannot control them. What you have to remember is that you’ve gotten up before and you will get up again. You will rise once more. And that every time you fall, you have more tools each time to pick yourself back up. And so I am trying to do what I would do with any of you and remind myself of that, that yes, I may have taken a few steps backwards, but that doesn’t eradicate all of the work I’ve done and all of the ways
