The new photos surfaced just a day after Britney Spears broke down in tears during an emotional “dump” in one of her iconic dance videos.
Britney Spears has stripped naked again. This time it’s in the pool at her nearly 12,000 square foot Hidden Hills mansion, which she bought just days after her surprise June 9 wedding to longtime partner Sam Asgari, 28. In photos the 40-year-old pop superstar posted in September at age 15, she posed topless in a bright yellow bikini bottom that showed off her two tattoos on either side of her bikini line. Her long blonde hair was slicked back and strategically covered her breasts. Unlike most Instagram posts, she didn’t caption the carousel.
Britney posted two more posts on Thursday. After her pool photos, she shared another carousel which featured a video of yellow roses swaying in the wind, followed by two photos of her from her first post with a filter applied to them. Her final post of the day was a dance video in which she showed off several moves in cropped black Nike shorts as well as a yellow cropped top with off-the-shoulder sleeves. “I have never sweat so much in my life,” she captioned the video.
Just a day before, on Sept. 14, the “Scream & Shout” singer shared another dance video in which she broke down in tears. She danced on “SOS” Indyles. and looked happy and carefree as she twirled around in a white tie-front crop top and black shorts, and got more emotional as the video progressed. In the caption of the video, she mentioned her tears. “It’s been a while since I cried on camera,” she began, before telling people she hadn’t had a “breakdown.” She described her tears as a “release” she “needed for a very long time”. She continued: “A spiritual experience for sure!!! I think I need to do this more.”
The past few weeks have certainly been stressful for Britney, so perhaps some wholesome crying was a release from the drama she’s recently been through. Some of the dramas include both her ex, Kevin Federline, and one of their sons, 15-year-old Jayden, speaking publicly about Britney and their relationship with her in an interview with Britain’s ITV news network. After an interview with Kevin in early August, Britney called her actions “offensive.”
On a lighter note, Britney seemed thrilled with the release of her collaboration with Elton John “Hold Me Closer” in late August and posted a video in which she celebrates the song’s “number one in 40 countries”. Additionally, a person close to Britney EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife that the song gave her the confidence she needed. “This song is exactly what Britney needs right now. After going through all that drama with Kevin, she really needed a confidence boost, and that was it,” they said.
