Britney Spears fans have been very vocal this year, with many voicing concerns over the mental health and well-being of the 38-year-old pop star due to her ongoing legal battles as well as her bizarre social media posts. Despite Spears’s attempts to paint an idyllic summer with her Instagram posts, or her sister Jamie Lynn Spears recently addressing concerns by saying she is making the best of the hard situation, fans were not convinced all was well for the “Toxic” singer. This appears to be the prompt in Spears’ latest social media post.
Dressed in a ruffled off-the-shoulders, midriff-bearing blouse similar to many recent posts, Spears acknowledges all the comments and chatter about her lately, saying “I just want to let you guys know I’m fine, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life, and I’m sending all of you guys a lot of prayers, wishes, and a lot of love.”
Despite her words, many fans seemed unconvinced Spears is speaking the truth. Some speculated that the recording was not recent, as one commenter said, “She wore this in her last post even the necklace so how do we know this was recorded today????” In a similar vein, fans believe Britney is being forced to record these videos, as one commenter wrote, “Britney your not okay, who’s forcing you to do these videos?”
Others were quick to note her facial expressions seem to contradict her message, as one poster commented, “NO YOUR EYES SAY DIFFERENT HUN.” Another sounded off, “You dont seem the happiest.”
To make things even more bizarre, just a matter of minutes later, Spears posted two images of herself, one she claims was taken over the weekend, and another she says was taken over three months ago that she hadn’t shared yet. This seems on par with her recent social media behavior, which alternates between short videos of her addressing her fans and close-up pics of her face, often sporting a choker necklace and heavy eye makeup.
This seemed to only further concern fans, as one person commented, “Honey there is obviously something very wrong…” and another observant fan pointing out the image from “this weekend” looks very similar to one posted months ago. While we didn’t find the exact photo in her feed, they do have a point. If you simply scroll down her Instagram page, many similar images have been posted over the last few months, often multiple times.
Whether fans are on to something, or simply misreading the situation, we can only hope that Britney is as happy as she claims she is.
