Britney Spears dismissed fans’ fears about her safety as she wielded a slew of kitchen knives in her latest dance video.
The 41-year-old hitmaker reassured everyone that she was alright while emphasising that her props were ‘fake’ in an Instagram video shared alongside the release of her revealing memoir.
Raising eyebrows in recent weeks for uploading a similar knife-wielding video, the actress was responding to prior fan concerns, which prompted officials to conduct a health check on her at home.
In her caption, she typed, ‘Come over don’t worry I have such a warm inviting loving home with these FAKE knives!!!,’ referring to the last video that caused alarm on social media.
Britney chose an orange crop top with white polka dots and a plunging neckline for her risky dance performance, and she completed her ensemble with white bikini bottoms.
She swished her long blonde hair about as she whirled, brandishing the blades above her head and smashing them together with a loud ‘clink’ noise.
Toxic’s vocalist wore a simple black choker around her neck and grinned as she slid the blade’s side across her throat.
She was dancing in what looked to be her living room at home, with a giant illuminated ring-light blazing in the backdrop of the photo.
Britney’s most recent social media post coincided with the publication of chapters from her upcoming biography The Woman In Me.
In her autobiography, she discussed her conservatorship and how she felt like a “robot stripped of [her] womanhood.”
In passages from the book published by People magazine, the US singer spoke about how ‘shaving [her] head and acting out were [her] ways of pushing back’ because she had been ‘eyeballed so much growing up’.
The worldwide popstar also stated that she was “never good enough” for her father, Jamie Spears, and that his control over her freedom and income since 2008, during the legal arrangement, made her “feel sick.”
Normally intended for the terminally sick, the conservatorship was terminated by a Los Angeles judge in November 2021 after 13 years.
Britney remembered in the book: ‘I would do little bits of creative stuff here and there, but my heart wasn’t in it anymore. As far as my passion for singing and dancing, it was almost a joke at that point.
‘I became a robot. But not just a robot — a sort of child-robot. I had been so infantilised that I was losing pieces of what made me feel like myself.
‘The conservatorship stripped me of my womanhood, made me into a child. I became more of an entity than a person onstage. I had always felt music in my bones and my blood; they stole that from me.
‘If they’d let me live my life, I know I would’ve followed my heart and come out of this the right way and worked it out.’
