The conservatorship legal drama continued on Wednesday in court, where the “Toxic” singer, 39, scored a victory when Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled that Spears would be allowed to hire her own attorney for the case after asking the court for permission to do so. Penny also approved attorney Sam Ingham’s resignation and signed off on his replacement of Spears’ choosing: Mathew Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor.

The singer’s statements come just weeks after she addressed the court on June 23 and expressed her desire for the conservatorship to end. She claimed she was forced to take Lithium, has been unable to remove an intrauterine device and that her dad has “loved” having control over her.

Not only is this a Cuba event, a Cuba thing, this is a world event. This isn’t about politics. This is about saving lives. This is about unity, not division. And bottom line it’s about taking action. Let me tell you something, why I’m frustrated and when I see everybody out there and doing what they’re doing, which I love what they’re doing. Okay, because not only do we live for freedom, we ride for freedom, we die for freedom, but we motherf***ing appreciate freedom.”
He continued, “And it gets me hat bothers me and it frustrates me to a certain extent, being a Cuban American, and having a platform to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people, not being able to get them food, not being able to get them water, not being able to get the medicine. But most of all, not being able to help and really get them what they deserve, which is freedom. And this is my way of talking to the world. All world’s allies get together to help. Global businesses get together to help. People that we’re so proud of, people such as a Jeff Bezos, a Cuban American, graduated from high school in Miami, built one of the biggest companies in the world, the richest man in the world. He’s somebody that can get involved and really help us and what we got. All we can do is create awareness, but politics are gonna be polititricks.”

So to everybody out there, stand up, step up. And if you don’t understand, get with the motherf***ing program and wake up because this is about freedom and it’s about human rights. And everybody in Cuba keep the fight up.”
