Britney Spears will refuse to perform again while her father, Jamie, retains control over her career.
The 39-year-old pop star stepped up her battle against her father’s conservatorship in a lengthy post on Instagram, sprinkled with obscenities.
“For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos … look I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think,” she wrote.
“I’d much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas … I’m not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years.”
She has gone to court to ask for an end to the legal arrangement which was put in place after she suffered a mental breakdown in 2008.

It gave Mr Spears control over both the singer’s career and $60 million (£43.4 million) estate.
The singer has accused Mr Spears, 69, a recovering alcoholic of conservatorship abuse.
She has said she is prepared to accept co-conservator, Jodi Montgomery, pending a formal request to end the conservatorship completely.
Last week the singer did win a significant victory in a Los Angeles court when Judge Brenda Penny ruled she could choose a lawyer to represent her interests.
Signalling an intensification of her legal battle, Spears picked Mathew Rosengart, a high-powered Hollywood lawyer and former federal prosecutor.
However, the court rejected her plea for Mr Spears to be removed from the conservatorship.
Outside the court, supporters staged a “free Britney” rally.
In the Instagram posting, Spears complained that her sister had performed her songs at an awards show.
“This conservatorship killed my dreams,” she added.
“As I said … hope is all I have right now … you’re lucky I post anything at all.”
