Lady Gaga’s tweet has me sobbing at 10 a.m.

Freedom for Britney Spears has finally arrived — and it’s about damn time!

Yesterday, the court terminated Britney’s conservatorship — which has ceded personal and financial control of the superstar’s life to her father and his team for 13 years — effective immediately.

While the 39-year-old had always been fighting against the conservatorship behind closed doors, it was her court appearance in the summer — where she described the abuse she faced — that bolstered an already-simmering #FreeBritney fan movement.

In celebration of the good news, Britney took to Instagram to show love for her fans. “I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day!!!! Best day ever…praise the Lord. Can I get an Amen? 🙏🏼☀️🙌🏼#FreedBritney,” she wrote.

Fans were joined by celebs who were also overjoyed by the news (well, to clarify, I think we can say the celebs are also fans, because, I mean, it’s Britney). Paris Hilton commented on the video above with a simple “Yasssss 🥳🥳🥳🥳😍.”

On Twitter, Paris posted a photo of the two in a car circa the mid-aughts (very reminiscent of the Holy Trinity photo, but sans Lindsay Lohan) and expanded on her congratulations. “I’m so happy that this day has finally come,” she wrote. “This moment is so long overdue. @BritneySpears is finally free!!! You’re the most resilient, kind, and inspiring soul. We all love you so so much! Your best days are yet to come! #FreedBritney.”

Lady Gaga wrote on Twitter, “I have loved @britneyspears her whole career. I looked up to her, admired her strength—she empowered so many people and still does. I couldn’t be more happy for you today. You never deserved what happened, Thank God 4 today, you’re a superstar and a super-human being.”

In a follow-up, she also wrote, “The question is — HOW was this abuse legal — taking away her rights and freedoms, keeping her imprisoned and guarded, taking her children and her money, forcing her to work, — HOW was this permitted for 13 years by any court.”

Comedian Franchesca Ramsey called the news a “day for the history books.” She continued on Twitter, “So happy for you & can’t wait for the next chapter of your amazing journey. Whatever’s next, know we’re all cheering for you💕✨🎉.”
