Britney Spears celebrated her birthday by doing something she’s always wanted to do.
Inspired by Madonna‘s rendition of “Toxic,” the birthday girl, who turned 36 on Saturday, Instagrammed a video of herself singing — not a Madonna song — but Elvis Presley‘s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Spears, who said she’s always wanted to shoot a video just like this, captioned the vid by saying, “I was really inspired yesterday by @madonna’s post. She’s right… silence = death! These words really stuck with me, because they are so true” and thanked her fans for “all the beautiful birthday wishes.”
I was really inspired yesterday by @madonna’s post. She’s right… silence = death! These words really stuck with me, because they are so true. I’ve always wanted to do a performance like this… singing in a pretty little black dress, with a simple 360, one take shot! I figured since it was my birthday, why not go for it?! So boom 💥 When the clock struck 12:00, I did it!!! Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes, and for letting me do what I love. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!!!!
In case you missed it, Madonna paid homage to the pop star with a rendition of “Toxic.” She added “Silence =Death! 😷. Song For World AIDS Day!”
Another pop princess joined in: Miley Cyrus commented on Spears’ post, writing, “U r everything to me. Can you please sing some Dolly Parton asap! And dedicate it to me … if it’s not tooooo much to ask!”
