What is going on with Britney Spears? The star is posting naked pictures of herself on social media. What is she thinking?
Britney Spears is having a meltdown. She posted naked pics of herself on social media.
Full frontal nude photos posted by Britney Spears to her 41 million followers on Instagram yesterday – which have sparked fears about her mental health amongst her loyal fanbase – could be a sign the star is trying to ‘regain control of her lost youth’, following the trauma of conservatorship, a top psychologist has claimed.
The 40-year-old star, who’s pregnant with her third child by personal trainer fiance Sam Asghari, left fans fearing for her state of mind after she posted a flurry of nine photos in quick succession to her Instagram account on Monday.
The eye-opening images show Spears covering her naked breasts with her hands and using an emoji loveheart to hide her genitals. Each photo was similar, taken on holiday in Mexico before she fell pregnant, but with different filters.
In another picture, Spears appeared holding a dog. These pictures were bizarre.
The Daily Mail attempted to explain Spears’s actions.
Within minutes, fans had expressed their concern for the singer’s mental health, saying: ‘This girl she is sick, she is crying for help,’ one wrote, while another said: ‘I’m pretty sure that conservatorship was in place for a reason.’
Others questioned why her partner hadn’t advised her against the photo dump.
Psychologist Dr Audrey Tang, author of The Leader’s Guide to Resilience, told FEMAIL that the exhibitionist snaps could be a sign of Britney still trying to find a way to break free following the 13-year conservatorship placed upon her by her father.
Dr Tang also suggested the star may be ‘urge-surfing’, finding impulsive ways to get attention from fans.
Since the legal battle, which made headlines across the globe and saw Spears given back control over her finances, and medical and personal decisions, the singer has announced an engagement, her pregnancy and been vocal about how she thought her head ‘might explode’ at being censored by the 13-year-long conservatorship.
Dr Tang explains: ‘When you’ve got someone who’s grown up with a very scripted lifestyle, you’ve got someone who’s never learned what freedom is actually like.
‘The problem is she can’t learn to do that now in a safe space and experiment, so she’s playing it all out in the public eye. And because it’s Britney, the fall-out is going to be a lot bigger than it would be for anyone else. It’s like a mid-life crisis times ten.’
Whatever the reason, these pictures looked a bit crazy. The woman is only 40-years-old but she has been in the news since a young girl. She had some big songs 20 years ago and appears to still be wanting to be noticed. This was one way to get attention alright.
Spears has performed similar acts recently where she dresses down to almost nothing in pictures used to promote her songs.
