Britney Spears had a good old poke at herself today, and she did it in a bikini. The “Toxic” singer, 38, has largely been making headlines this summer for the resurgence of the #FreeBritney movement as her 2008-commenced conservatorship receives more attention than ever.
Britney’s Monday Instagram update – as usual – kept all mentions of her legal affairs out of it. The pop princess was back in her bikini and cracking jokes.
Scroll for the photos, what Britney had to say, plus why the “…Baby One More Time” hitmaker is dominating headlines right now.
Britney, whose plain red, white, or yellow wall backdrops have caused concern as her 25.8 million Instagram followers deem her feed a setup – and suggest Britney has no control over it – was in yellow territory today. She was posing against a studio wall setting and rocking a killer snakeskin bikini as she looked deep into the lens. Britney was also covered in white henna, which she admitted she might have overdone.
A caption opened: “So I got carried away with henna !!!! “
A quick swipe to the right showed Spears posing with her hands on her hips and back in those tiny tan shorts that have been all over her IG this summer.
“I think I’m going for a bohemian look in the second picture …. not sure what my hands on my hips are about ???!!! I guess I’m demanding attention ??? !!!!” she added.
Britney may have joked about demanding attention, but the star now sees fans majorly concerned – and they’d likely be grateful for your typical attention-seeking celeb moment. For now, however, the posts continue to be, for anyone #FreeBritney, a giant sham.
Britney once came with mental health concerns as her biggest headline-maker. The star’s 2000s spirals sparked the beginning of father Jamie and his lawyer taking over her finances and other aspects of her life – something that, minus the lawyer dropping out in 2019, continues. Fans, meanwhile, fear the singer is not safe. Their repeated: “Are you ok?” questions continued today.
“Queen are you OK,” one fan wrote. While Britney delivered a rare clap-back earlier this month and called herself “authentic”, her followers prove underwhelmed. They want a question answered, and they seemingly aren’t getting it.
July has seen Britney answer fan Q&As via Instagram videos. Chili dogs were revealed as Britney’s favorite food, “Frozen” is her favorite Disney movie, and Hawaii and Turks & Caicos are her favorite vacation spots.
However, both videos led to an unprecedented wave of comments asking if the singer is okay – celebrities including “Orange Is The New Black” star Ruby Rose and “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter now back #FreeBritney.
Britney did not appear for her July 22 video-streamed court appearance. “Technical difficulties” were reported to be the reason behind the no-show. Meanwhile, the singer’s mother Lynne has legally filed to be involved in her daughter’s affairs.
