Britney Spears says she 'forgot' she could sing as mom Lynne begs her to return to performing

BRITNEY Spears has joked she "forgot" she could sing as her mom Lynne begged her to return to performing with a throwback clip.

The 39-year-old star shared the video to Instagram from the late 1990s, which shows her singing a cover of The Jets hit You Got It All.

Britney, who has recently been battling her father for freedom in an ongoing conservatorship battle, said her mom had sent her the clip to "remind her she could sing".

"Geez, my mom sent this to me and reminded me that I can sing," she wrote to her fans. "She said, 'You never sing anymore, you need to again'."

The Baby One More Time singer said she had "never watched" the performance previously but it came as a reminder of her stunning vocals.

The star can be seen bopping along to the track as she sings in a tight black satin dress, wearing her hair pulled back and a dark purple lipstick.

"It's from one of the first trips that I took alone," she recalled of the moment. "Mostly I just remember saying, 'Wow, Singapore'."

Not wanting to confirm a comeback, Britney simply signed off her post by confirming the performance was "definitely from a while ago."

It appears it's not just mom Lynne, 65, who thinks Britney should return, as fans flooded the comments section in agreement.

"Listen to your mom and release an album! We love you," wrote one fan, as another wrote back: "She's an actual real life angel."

A third chimed in: "I've loved your voice since day one. So much emotion and soul," while a fourth agreed: "Comeback please! Sing for us!"

Last year, it was reported that Britney refused to perform as long as her father, Jamie Spears, continues to control her career with her conservatorship.

Her lawyer Samuel Ingham said the pop star was "afraid" of dad Jamie, 68, and that she would not sing so long as he remained in the role.

The conservatorship came following several public breakdowns in 2008, which led to Britney being hospitalized for psychiatric treatment. 

At this point, Jamie took complete control of his daughter’s life; every business, financial and medical decision has had to go through him. 

Britney has made several attempts to end the conservatorship, but they have been rejected.

In August 2020, Jamie said that Britney's conservatorship is "no one else's business" and #FreeBritney movement "is a joke".

He told Page Six: "All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don't have a clue. It's up to the court of California to decide what's best for my daughter. It's no one else's business."
