Britney Posts a Message on Twitter After Deleting Instagram
The Princess of Pop had 42 million followers and over 3000 posts on Instagram when she deactivated her account. A few hours later, she posted a message for her 55 million followers on Twitter, hinting that she had taken the step to get rid of negativity in her life.
Spears tweeted, “I’m learning everyday is a clean slate to try and be a better person and do what makes me happy … yes I choose happiness today. I tell myself every day to let go of the hurt bitterness and try to forgive myself and others to what may have been hurtful.”
“I want to be fearless like when I was younger and not be so scared and fearful. I pray there actually is truth to the Holy Spirit and I hope that spirit is with my children as well !!! Yes … I choose happiness and joy today!!!” she added.
Britney further shared the news that her new track Hold Me Closer with Elton John is set to be released on Friday. She wrote on Twitter, “Okie dokie…my first song in 6 years !!!! It’s pretty damn cool that I’m singing with one of the most classic men of our time…@eltonofficial!!!! I’m kinda overwhelmed… it’s a big deal to me !!! I’m meditating more and learning my space is valuable and precious !!!”
The Pop Star had Deleted Instagram Earlier too
This is the fourth time when Britney has deleted her Instagram account without any prior information to fans. Earlier, the singer had come back to the platform just some days after stepping away from it.
In September 2021, Britney decided to take a break from social media to celebrate her engagement with Sam Asghari. At the time, a source had revealed, “She’s happy and in a great place, and silence can be a powerful thing and a powerful message. This was her decision.”
But the Gimme More singer returned within a week and posted a photo with the caption, “I couldn’t stay away from the gram too long, so I’m back already 💍😂🤷🏼♀️🤣 !!!!”
Britney has been through many Ups and Downs this year
The singer has been through a rollercoaster ride this year personally. From the termination of her conservatorship to her feud with family and from her marriage to signing a $15 million book deal, Britney has seen it all in the span of a year.
Talking about how she is getting through this new phase of life, a source said, “A lot of Britney’s downtime these days consists of simply adjusting to this new chapter of her life. She wasn’t a free woman for over 13 years. Now, the sky’s the limit.”
Now let’s see for how long Britney decides to stay away from Instagram. Meanwhile, her fans would be eager to see her return. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
