Britney Spears crushed Instagram last night – she also found herself bumped up to #1 spot on music charts for music that dates back to 2016. The 38-year-old pop princess set the internet ablaze on Friday with a smoking-hot, desert-set swimsuit photo forming a new cover for her “Glory” album – the blonde’s sun-drenched and glistening body went viral within minutes, with overnight likes to the photo currently sitting at over 675,000.
Britney – who recently fronted media outlets for “burning down” her gym and admitting to weight loss – showed zero signs of strain in the bombshell throwback. Keep scrolling for her mind-blowing workout body and what appears to be a continued grip on the pop industry.
Britney’s post came honoring her “Glory” album shooting up charts to secure the #1 spot. The singer unveiled a new album cover for the August 2016-debuted photo taken by renowned photographer Dave LaChapelle – writhing her gym-honed body in the tiniest and barely-there gold swimsuit as she lay with her arched back on desert sands, the “Toxic” singer had gone full bombshell as she was snapped amid heavy metal chains.
“You asked for a new Glory cover and since it went to number one we had to make it happen !!!! Couldn’t have done it without you all ???✨!!!!” she wrote.
Britney’s 24.2 million followers were like bees to a honeypot.
“Ain’t no chains tying you down!” one fan wrote.
“THANK YOU. WE CAN NOW DECORATE OUR HOUSE WITH THIS ART PIECE. ✨✨✨✨✨???,” another said.
Shooting up to the top of the comments section was a reply from Iranian boyfriend Sam Asghari – the personal trainer who has been dating Britney since 2016 wrote:
“Always #1 ?❤️.”
The photo comes amid the singer’s continued conservatorship headlines – Britney’s spiraling 2000s and continued mental health battles now see her 2008-commenced control extended amid coronavirus.
April 29 propeled the blonde to the front of media outlets as she took to Instagram to confess having burned down her gym – seen below, the footage sits at over 6.1 million views.
“It was an accident ….,” the star began, adding:
“But yes …. I burnt it down ?. I walked past the door to the gym and flames ???? BOOM !!!!!! By the Grace of God the alarm ? went off after that and yippy hoorah nobody got hurt ??. Unfortunately now I have only two pieces of equipment left lol and a one-sided mirror gym ??? !!!!! But it could be much worse so I’m grateful. Pssss I like working out better outside anyways ????? !!!!”
2020 has seen Britney spark major health concerns. The openly bipolar star whose 12+ and repetitive, sporadically-posted images generated psychological stability fears has had her fans worried – shot against a red backdrop as she rocked a bathing suit she claimed belonged to her grandmother, the “Womanizer” star caused a second wave of panic with her May-posted floral crop top pictures. #FreeBritney – largely seeing fans finding the star at her healthiest and happiest – does, however, rage on.
As to Britney being “the most authentic she’s ever looked,” the term was used earlier this year as the star went horseback riding with boyfriend Sam.
