Today, via Zoom, Britney Spears finally spoke out directly about her controversial conservatorship. I am not a fan of hers — I've never found her compelling on any level.

She does not sound well to me, but she certainly sounds high-functioning and intelligent and articulate about her situation; she was not ranting.
