After posting multiple topless photos on Instagram, which began last month, Britney Spears started off her latest Instagram post on August 18 by clarifying that her ample bosom was neither because of breast surgery nor pregnancy.
The 39-year-old singer then revealed how she feels about shedding her clothes online for the first time this year.
She wrote, “I have boobs in these pics cause I devoured food !!!! Before I show you more pics of my body … I want you to understand my thoughts on exposing my skin !!!! In my opinion it’s quite twisted the immediate response of when any woman is hot and they want to shed a layer … no … I’m not talking in a strip club or a performance … just on a practical scale of being in your car and realizing you’re wearing a stupid long sleeve shirt in the summer !!!! The immediate reaction to any woman who does this after shedding a layer is DAMN I FEEL BETTER … therefore you think you look better !!! I’ve had a billion shows where I’ve done that and to my horror uhhh we’ll … sometimes I didn’t look so great … TOO MANY TIMES and it’s embarrassing as fuck but in my imagination it felt great !!!!"
The singer, known as the “Princess of Pop,” also shared in the same post how performing since she was six years old has made her self-conscious about her body. “I mean I don’t want anybody to see the big dimple on my ass but I feel like performing made me too self conscious about my body and that’s not attractive ….. anyways I bet you’re wondering why I’d expose my body NOW … well it’s because I was born into this world naked and I honestly feel like the weight of the world has been on my shoulders and it’s made me view myself that way !!!! I wanted to see myself in a lighter way … naked … like the way I was born and to me looking back at my pictures when I shoot it’s insane the psychology in seeing myself in my purest form gives evidence that pain … hurt … tears … and heavy burdens aren’t who I am. I am a woman …. a beautiful … sensitive woman who needs to look at myself in my purest form !!!” she added.
The popstar is still engaged in a battle with her family to end the conservatorship, which started more than a decade ago after concerns about Britney’s mental health surfaced. In her post, Britney touched on how she feels about the #FreeBritney moment started by her fans in support of her battle. “No … I’m not going to do topless pics for the rest of my life cause that would get boring but it sure as hell helps when you need to be enlightened !!
