Now, the 39-year-old artist has freedom over her future and her career for the first time since 2008. Her father, Jamie Spears, is no longer holding the reins of her professional choices. Yet, Spears said, she is still somewhat scared for her future.

“I’ll just be honest and say I’ve waited so long to be free from the situation I’m in,” said Spears in a lengthy Instagram post in October, with a photo of a Christmas tree. “And now that it’s here I’m scared to do anything because I’m afraid I’ll make a mistake.”

Spears, who is one of the most famous pop stars in the world may remain sturdy moving forward, however, she has many supporters, both famous and otherwise by her side. Many of them have been following the Spears conservatorship case and are sending some of their positive vibes to the “Stronger” singer.

To wit, one of the major reasons Spears is free from her father’s control is her fans and the social media hashtag #FreeBritney. The singer acknowledged that on Twitter, saying, “Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy. !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen???? #FreedBritney

Spears added, “#FreeBritney movement … I have no words … because of you guys and your constant resilience in freeing me from my conservatorship … my life is now in that direction !!!!! I cried last night for two hours cause my fans are the best and I know it …”

Check out messages of support from those in her corner include:
