Britney Spears fans became extremely concerned last week when the pop icon deleted her social media account, even deciding to call the police in fear that something worrying had happened to her.
However, Spears made a return and assured fans she’s not in trouble or having a breakdown.
Spears announced her return on her Instagram platform with a slightly confusing and lengthy post, where she assures those looking from the outside that she is doing fine and enjoying her freedom.
Spears wrote: “Since everyone thinks they know my story. THINK AGAIN !!! A mere side of any given SUNDAY doesn’t show worship placing someone’s story out there … it’s a day of WELCOMING … not a righteous reply!!! It is what it is … nope I’m not having a breakdown … I am who I am and moving forward in my life. I have never felt better!!!”
The ‘Baby One More Time‘ singer further suggested that if people “walked in [her] shoes,” they would understand why she is acting the way she is.
She said: “Nope, I’m not this girl or that girl … I am River Red … and being able to volumize my voice in a world where I lost my rights … for 15 years … gives me an opportunity to succeed!!!”

She went onto explain why she removed herself from Instagram. In her words:
“I shut down my Instagram because there were too many people saying I looked like an idiot dancing and that I looked crazy. Honestly, I was doing my best, but it disturbed me to see people freely talk about it on TV…yep, it hurt my feelings.
“To my real fans, God bless you! l adore my fans but for those who did that aren’t real fans and I honestly felt like it was a way to make me look bad! This time I said please get the f— away from me … Yes … it’s Britney B— !!! I woke up and spoke up for myself … can you believe it? Honestly, I couldn’t either … so with that said, please again know I’m doing the best I can.”
She continues: “Opportunity to know I matter and maybe if you walked in my shoes, then maybe just maybe you could understand. Still learning this no-rules thing … I don’t think so limited … I feel younger and in awe … unfortunately I’m boring as hell and drink hot chocolate at night!!! I’ve waited nearly 15 years to drink alcohol only to realize I hate it!!! It makes me sad and I feel bloated, although food tastes better …Stay blessed and driven … SIT DOWN AND STAY HUMBLE … Nahhh, I’d rather show my ass !!! PS yes I took my Instagram down and now it’s back up because I can !!!”
Taking to Twitter, Spears demonstrated how well she’s been doing both before and after her wellness visit.
She said: “Yep that’s me … I’m alive and well,” she captioned a video of herself in the gym. “But not really convinced on these health juices. I mean there are so many!”
Yep that’s me … I’m alive and well. But not really convinced on these health juices🥤, I mean there are SO MANY !!! Yoga and chest call me in 🧘🏼♀️. I do it inside, outside, wherever I fancy … this is me at a gym living my best life 🏋🏼♀️ !!! pic.twitter.com/5GMcpkPMfy
