Britney Spears has told how she found touring “draining” and claims she couldn't even have coffee.

The pop princess’s 13-year conservatorship ended in 2021 and since then she has regularly opened up about what her life was like both before and after it was lifted.

In her latest Instagram post she shared a clip of herself on a TV show, saying it had been relatively easy to do compared to being on the road, and that it was one moment in her life where she “actually felt like a star”.

“I was in the music industry for over half of my life!!!” said the singer.

“I was told by someone who directed movies that the music industry is a different beast… especially touring!!!

“It’s fun at first but if you’ve done it for a while, being in a different city constantly gets pretty draining!!!

“I have done like 10 tours!!!”

Spears, 41, said the show she shared the clip from had required “the least effort” and that she’d realised it was “my favourite thing I have ever done”.

She said: “Three days of rehearsal, 1 day of dress rehearsal and performing just 5 songs, shot to a T on a TV set!!

“It took 45 minutes to shoot… I remember afterwards being like, ‘Wow that was easy, can we do it again???’ The lighting, everything was brilliant!!! WAYYY different than hauling 4 trucks and 300 people on a tour where I couldn’t even have coffee!!!!”
