On Twitter, the singer says she wants to wipe the slate clean to “try to be a better person and do what makes me happy… Yes, I choose happiness today”. She says she wants to forget hurts and bitterness and try to forgive herself and others. […] I want to be fearless like when I was younger.“
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.

BFM TV recalls that this is not the first time that Britney Spears has turned her back on Instagram: “Last year, the pop star had decided to move away from Instagram for a few days, the time to prepare for her engagement with the dancer and coach sportsman Sam Ashgari”, write our colleagues. It remains to be seen whether the deactivation of his account is now final.
“…Baby One More Time”
Britney Spears lived thirteen years under the guardianship of her father, in 2008 and 2021. She has been free since November 12. That day, it was on Instagram that she said: “It’s crazy. I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day. It’s the best day of my life. God be praised.”
The pop star, revealed by several planetary hits including “…Baby One More Time”, has not given an interview for years and rarely appears publicly.
