Britney Spears reveals that she's not ready to return to music

After reports surfaced that the 40-year-old pop star was ready to make her comeback, she took to Instagram recently to set the record straight. The Grammy winner, whose 13-year conservatorship officially came to an end, candidly discussed why she's been hesitant to release new music. According to Britney, she had hoped to "perform new songs and remixes of my old songs" but was allegedly unable to do so while she was under the conservatorship. Despite being in charge of her destiny now, the Toxic singer admitted that she's not ready to return to the music industry just yet. "I guess it seems odd to most now why I don't even do my music anymore...that's just the surface issues," her message read in part. "People have no idea the awful things that were done to me personally...and after what I've been through, I'm scared of people and the business!!"
