Even though Britney Spears has experienced a series of setbacks when it comes to her long-standing conservatorship helmed by her father, the pop star is reportedly hopeful for what a new year can bring.

The “Toxic” singer, who is celebrated her 39th birthday, is still determined to fight for more control of her life come 2021. Spears has been steadily involved in a court battle with her father to have him removed as the head of her conservatorship, but a California judge recently ruled that he could continue to oversee Spears’s career and finances, at least through the remainder of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If all the emoji in her birthday post tell us anything, it’s that the pop princess is keeping optimistic. And the source for ET seems to offer a similar sentiment.
