Britney Spears's life took a dramatic turn for the better on Friday, as a judge ended her 13-year conservatorship - opening up a whole world of opportunities.
Spears, who turns 40 next month, shocked the world in June when she laid bare the terms of her arrangement.
'In California the only similar thing to this is called sex trafficking, making anyone work, work against their will, taking all their possessions away — credit card, cash, phone, passport card — and placing them in a home where they work with the people who live with them,' she told the court.
Now that her conservatorship is officially over - Spears will find her horizons significantly wider, as we reveal all the thing's she's now free to do...

Arguably the most shocking revelation from the June 22 hearing was that Spears was being forced to use birth control, to stop her having a third child.
She is the mother of two teenage sons - Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline. He has full custody of their boys.

Spears told the court in June: 'I want to be able to get married and have a baby.
'I was told right now in the conservatorship, I'm not able to get married or have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself right now so I don't get pregnant. I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby.
'But this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don't want me to have children, any more children.'
Spears met her fiance Sam Asghari, a 27-year-old Iranian-born actor and personal trainer, in 2016, when she cast him for the video of her song Slumber Party.
She has already teased photos of her in what appeared to be a wedding dress on Instagram, and confirmed that Donatella Versace was working on her outfit for the big day.
'No … this is not my wedding dress - bahahah !!!!' she captioned the picture.
'Donatella Versace is making my dress as we speak.'

SEE HER SONS MORE OFTEN
The singer's struggles in 2008, when she was divorcing Federline, led to the judge in their divorce case to grant full custody to him.
Under the terms of the conservatorship, the conservators would arrange her visits.
Now she is free to liaise directly with Federline and see the teenage boys more frequently, without third-party obstacles.

SEE HER FRIENDS
The conservators put in place restrictions on who she could see, and when, and she has frequently cut a lonely and isolated figure.
The move was designed to prevent her from coming into contact with people who could take advantage of her, or otherwise harm her.
Spears's father, Jamie, was particularly concerned about some of her ex-boyfriends, and worried that people were trying to get close to her for her money.
But Spears told the court on June 23 that she wasn't allowed to see friends.
'I'm not able to see my friends that live eight minutes away from me, which I find extremely strange,' she said.
She also added: 'I'd like for my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his car.'
DRIVE HER CAR
Under the terms of her conservatorship, she was prevented from driving - that has now changed.
Spears has in recent months been frequently spotted driving her white Mercedes-AMG SL 63 near her Los Angeles home.
She is now allowed to be alone in the $150,000 car, but bodyguards often follow behind in a separate vehicle.
In July, she posted a photo to Instagram and commented: 'It's been a while since I drove alone and well let's just say it's a DIFFERENT BALLGAME.'

The Louisiana-born singer is known for her love of driving and has spoken often about the sense of freedom she feels behind the wheel.
In a 2008 documentary, made shortly after she was placed under a conservatorship, she revealed she was no longer allowed to drive alone.
A producer asked her, 'When did you last feel free?' to which she responded: 'When I got to drive my car a lot.'
She added: 'I love driving my car.
'There's something about being able to drive your car that allows freedom. I haven't been able to drive my car.'
LIVE IN HER OWN HOME, AS SHE PLEASES
Spears has, since 2015, lived in a mansion on 21 acres in Thousand Oaks, in the Westlake Village community.
She purchased the property for $7.4 million but, her father always had the final say.
Jamie Spears, according to the New York Times, 'restricted everything from whom she dated to the color of her kitchen cabinets.'
She and Asghari could be looking to make a fresh start.
On October 20 the pair were spotted house hunting, looking at a $16.5 million mansion in the upscale Hidden Hills neighborhood in Calabasas.
The house, purchased by Star in 2019 for $14.6 million, has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and boasts sweeping views of the
