As it might seem that 2020 is the new 2008 for Britney, a lot is going on with this pop star. On August 18th this year, Britney filed court papers asking to remove her father as her conservator. Wait. What? It’s been a while since her father is legally managing her career, finances, and choices. To give you an example – Britney can’t vote or drive or go out without her father’s permission. Spears fans noticed hidden help messages in her Instagram account, and that’s how the #FreeBritney movement started. Now, the conservatorship extended until 2021, and the court also revealed that her funds’ trustee is her little sister Jamie Lynn Spears, and she’s asking for even more. It seems that Britney’s family is controlling her for over a decade now, or is she? Everything is just so complicated, but here’s a timeline of recent events.

Remember an extraordinary brand build by Demna Gvasalia Vetements? Well, he’s not a creative director there anymore. In 2019 September, he moved to the Balenciaga brand full time as a creative director. But it seems his original brand came back to haunt him. It appears that the 2019 Vetements t-shirt is kind of similar to Balenciagas‘ new one… And they posted it on their Instagram account with a golden caption. Oh, and, by the way, Vetements‘ CEO is Guram Gvasalia, Demna brother. See for yourself.
