Rose McGowan Says Britney Spears Is ‘Ready to Blow the Lid’ on Hollywood Abuse
Spears revealed the “abusive” nature of the conservatorship of her father
#MeToo actress Rose McGowan has claimed pop star Britney Spears is “ready to blow the lid” on the “rot” in Hollywood.
Spears revealed the “abusive” nature of the conservatorship of her father in court testimony.
68-year-old James Parnell Spears took control of the popstar's life and money in 2008.
Spears also alleged that individuals involved with her conservatorship forced her to take birth control and put her on lithium after refusing dance choreography.
Spears also says she was forced into concert tours.
McGowan told Fox News's Tucker Carlson that Spears’ testimony was a “cultural reset,” adding she believes the star is “ready to blow the lid” on who has wronged her in Hollywood.
“She, I think, is ready to blow the lid,” McGowan said.
“She said today she’s ‘So angry it’s insane.'”
“While we’ve all been entertained by Britney Spears, she’s been being tortured,” McGowan continued.

“And I know it seems like one person, but they’ve done this to women and humans and whistleblowers and people they don’t like and really like you said, Tucker, the people — the monsters in power — that control the puppet, not just her, but like the message, it sends to every girl or every boy out there that you are disposable and the elite can own you.”
McGowan noted the media treatment of Spears when she infamously shaved her head in 2007 while her father was devising a plan with “paid off doctors’ help” to put her on the conservatorship by declaring her as having dementia.
“I lived in Hollywood at that time [Britney Spears shaved her head] and I’ve made it my life’s mission to tell all of you out there what so many of you really know deep down that fame and Hollywood, and the media machine are rotten to the core and they do hurt and they do damage."
Spear's father and the judge ruled that she had dementia at age 25.
So since then, she’s gone on to do a five-year residency in Vegas, two shows a day, she’s gone on to a tour in 2018 and what happened today is literally a cultural landmark moment, it is a cultural reset. [Emphasis added]
She got to speak for the first time, I believe, in her life honestly and openly and what has been done to her is horrific. And I know it’s like ‘Why should we care about a rich pop princess, right?’ But I think it’s deeper than that. And I think it goes to what you talk a lot about, which goes to the rot and the machine and how society also plays a part in a weird form of oppression. [Emphasis added]
“I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. I just want my life back,” Spears said, according to The New York Times.
“I want to end the conservatorship without having to be evaluated. I shouldn’t be in a conservatorship if I can work. The laws need to change. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive.”
“It’s embarrassing and demoralizing what I’ve been through, and that’s the main reason I didn’t say it openly,” she said.
“I didn’t think anybody would believe me.”
Spears requested that she be allowed to do a tell-all public interview to expose those involved with her case.
Back in April, McGowan called out “chickensh*t” Hollywood celebrities who are profiting from “known monsters,” accusing them of being “monsters” themselves.
McGowan wrote in a tweet:
“Dear Hollywood, YOU MUST CLEAN HOUSE."
"If you are profiting from known monsters YOU are a monster."
"And to all, you chickensh*t celebs I promise this, if you do not start blowing your goddamn truth whistles you will fade away. We see you. The time is now."
