With all the drama surrounding Britney Spears and her conservatorship saga recently, it can be easy to forget that she used to be one of the most popular singers in the world. There was barely a moment in the early 2000s where you could turn on the radio and not hear one of her songs.

Prepare to be transported back to those times as Spears recently shared a throwback video on Instagram of herself performing as a teen with an added bonus – it appears she was in Singapore for the show.

The 39-year-old Spears shared the clip on Saturday (Mar 20) of herself singing You’ve Got It All by The Jets, explaining that her mum had initially sent her the video to remind her that she could sing.

The caption read: “Geez … My mom sent this to me and reminded me that I can sing!!!! She said ‘You never sing anymore … you need to again!!!!’”

Spears then said the video was “definitely from a while ago” and that it was one of the first trips she took alone. She added: “Mostly I just remember saying ‘WOW Singapore’”.

According to Buzzfeed, the video was likely from the time Spears was 17, in 1998, before her debut album had even come out. The portal referenced pop music blog MuuMuse that unveiled the full video in 2016 of that showcase performance.

Spears last performed in Singapore in June 2017, where she also visited Universal Studios with her two young sons.

She experienced several meltdowns in 2007, including one where she shaved her head and another where she attacked a paparazzi's car with an umbrella. At the time, the then 25-year-old had just divorced her husband Kevin Federline.

Her father, Jamie Spears, was appointed her conservator in 2008 and in control of her finances and several other important life decisions. She’s currently battling her father in court to oppose him remaining as the sole conservator of her affairs and to regain some autonomy. Fans have also started the FreeBritney movement to help her win back her freedom.
