Britney Spears, 41, appeared to have a cut on her thigh and a white bandage wrapped around one arm, in a new dance video. The singer, who recently shared a video of herself dancing while holding two knives she claimed were fake, wore an orange crop top with white polka dots, white bikini bottoms and white boots, in the clip, which was shared with Instagram Tuesday. She also had some hair pulled up and some pulled down.
“My ‘Pretty Woman’ top… pretty cool after my polka dot briefing 😉😉🙄🙄🙈🙈🤓🤓!!!! Swipe to see both!!!” she captioned the post.
The video comes just hours after Britney shared the now-infamous knife video. “I started playing in the kitchen with knives today 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️!!! Don’t worry, these are NOT real knives!!! Halloween is almost 🙈🙈🙈!!!,” she wrote in the caption. Although they claimed they weren’t real, the video went viral and many suspected they were real because of the metallic sound they made when she put them together.
The wild video happened months after TMZ founder, Harvey Levin, claimed that Britney became obsessed with knives and viewed them “as a means of protection” due to the “trauma” of her abusive conservatorship that lasted 13 years. Sources also told the outlet that Britney’s “caring” friends had recommended she stay away from knives.
Britney disabled her comments section on both posts regarding, but did not respond directly to the speculation. The “…Baby One More Time” singer has been no stranger to criticism since her 13-year conservatorship ended nearly two years ago. She is known to sometimes react to what netizens say about her, but she has also remained silent and continued to post mostly dancing content on her social media pages.
The great interest in Britney’s private life will only grow when her upcoming memoir, The woman in mecomes out October 24. The book is expected to reveal intimate details about her life behind the cameras and is described as “a courageous and surprisingly moving story about freedom, glory, motherhood, survival, faith and hope”, according to the official website.
