POP superstar Britney Spears is planning a major comeback this year after successfully breaking free from her conservatorship.

As well as teaming up with lucrative brands, the Baby One More Time singer has her sights set on new music and spectacular shows.

Britney (40), who has sold 100 million records, says she has a new song in the works to kick off what promises to be one of the happiest years of her life.

She also posted on social media that she wants to have a baby with her fiancé Sam Asghari, who turns 28 years old in March.

"Britney is her own decision maker now and she wants to expand her professional horizons. She's just waiting for the right time for everything," an insider told the media.

In November, a judge approved the termination of Britney's conservatorship, freeing the pop star from the controversial legal arrangement that controlled her life for nearly 14 years.

Britney had fought for years to regain her independence from the courts, which in 2008 took away her rights after she had a meltdown. The conservatorship gave others, including her estranged father, Jamie Spears, the right to make basic decisions about her finances, career and personal life.

The end of the conservatorship came five months after Britney spoke publicly about the arrangement for the first time in court, saying she had been forced to take medications and perform against her will, and that her father, Jamie Spears, had been an abusive conservator who tightly controlled intimate details of her life.

In September, a judge suspended her father from the conservatorship.

Britney had told the court that those involved in the conservatorship had made her perform while sick with a fever, that her security team and assistant held her credit card and used it whenever they wanted, that she was limited to a weekly allowance, and that her father even prohibited her from making cosmetic changes to her kitchen.

She also said she was forced into a mental health facility against her will, which she viewed as retaliation for speaking up in a rehearsal.

After getting her freedom in November, Britney spoke of the joy of being free to do simple things, such as withdraw cash from an ATM.

"I'm able to have cash now, so I went to an ATM and was so proud of my $300," she wrote on social media. "And, no, I'm not embarrassed to share this ... well maybe a little ... but I'm more embarrassed for my family for condoning the fact that I wasn't allowed to have cash for so long when I worked my little ass off for them ...

"I'm embarrassed for the State of California for permitting my father to have me work as hard as he worked me all those years and never seeing a dime ... I'm embarrassed for all of them and I'm sad for them because I know my value and worth now."

Britney's Iranian-born partner Sam Asghari, a model and personal trainer, has been the one constant in her life over the past five years.

"He's a very good-hearted, kind, respectful person. A very nice guy, very polite and isn't caught up in the fact that he's dating one of the world's most famous women," a friend of Sam's says.

"He's very supportive of Britney. If you look at his social media, he's not posting tons of pictures of her. It's very quiet and subdued. It's not like he's dating someone famous and flaunting it. He's a very good guy and I think he's really good for her, but I also think she's really good for him."
