Pop star Britney Spears has decided to "push boundaries" and "take risks" by dancing with knives a second time.

The "Toxic" singer first took to Instagram to show off her knife dance on Monday night; however, the clink of the knives made fans question if they were actually real. On Tuesday night, she posted another Instagram video that featured her dancing with a cut on her leg, a bandage around her arm, and a bruise on her back.

On Tuesday night, she took to Instagram for a third time to tell her followers to "lighten up," claiming she was only copying Shakira's 2023 MTV Video Music Awards performance. However, it appears that not everyone was convinced, as police were called to conduct a welfare check on the pop star on Wednesday night.

On Thursday night, the “Hold Me Closer” singer danced barefoot on the floor of her living room in a white long-sleeve crop top, pink drawstring, and black necklace. She spins around and around, clinking the knives together as she dances.

This time, her dogs are nowhere to be seen in the video. Last time, fans were concerned by the towels on the floor and the way her dogs went running when they heard the knives hit against each other. This led fans to express concern for her dogs online, with some even venturing that the dogs should be removed from her care.
