Britney Spears needed less than an hour to be told she still looks like a teenager today. The 38-year-old pop icon first made headlines on Monday for rocking her “grandmother’s” bathing suit as she posed with boyfriend Sam Asghari – the post seeing the “Toxic” singer explain the color red to her 23.8 million Instagram followers was quickly followed by two separate posts showing the blonde in floral mode.
Britney’s post wove in the flower theme in more ways than one. The wardrobe saw the “Womanizer” star channel garden vibes. The digitally-edited flower in her hair showed the blonde’s tech abilities.
Britney’s double set of photos showed her shot against a white wall and posing head-on. Despite not delivering her smile, the singer was showcasing plenty, seen flaunting her ample cleavage in a low-cut and puff-sleeve crop top in lilac fabrics with pink, green, and white injections. The vintage vibe echoes looks that filled the star’s social media in February and March as she rocked a dress she claimed to be from the 1920s alongside her “grandmother’s'” swimsuit – today kept it up.
With her cascading blonde hair worn down, Britney posed with a direct gaze, appearing to highlight a red rose seen in her hair.
The comments section to Britney’s set of photos brought in a mixed response. Over 45,000 and 82,000 likes in an hour threw the star the thumbs-up, as did a comment dubbing the starlet as looking more than half her age – the fan wrote that Britney was still “looking” 16.
Others, meanwhile, commented on the digital flower edit.
“Queen of editing,” one wrote, with another saying: “Queen of Photoshop!”
Given the mini posting spree today and Britney already having sparked major mental health concerns this year, though, some users queried the stability from the singer known to suffer from bipolar disorder. Britney has been under her father’s conservatorship since 2008.
“Are you okay babe?” one fan wrote.
“Ya’ll, I don’t think she’s posting this willingly” was a comment quickly racking up likes.
Elsewhere, comments came in over the dark eyeliner seen: “Please change you makeup artist,” one fan bluntly wrote.
Over 12 images of Britney posing in similar outfits against a red backdrop sparked worry earlier this year as the singer also delivered a video of herself speaking in a British accent. Then again, photos of the singer looking happy and healthy while horseback riding with boyfriend Sam had fans dubbing her the “most authentic” she’s ever looked.
Britney rarely replies to her comments, but her mid-March statement confirmed that she reads them.
“I’ve read a lot of things online of people criticising my posts… saying I post the same 15 pictures with the same red background and wearing the same white bathing suit,” the star wrote, adding:
“Reading all of the mean comments really hurts my feelings… and I wanted to share because you really shouldn’t be saying all of these mean things to someone you don’t even know… this goes for bullying anyone really!!!!!!”
