Britney Spears insists she is happy as she calls out her haters amid concerns about her wellbeing: ‘This is me being authentic and as real as it gets!’
Not everyone may understand her Instagram posts.
But Britney Spears doesn’t care what everybody thinks.
The singer, 38, called out her haters on Instagram, where she posted a Bible quote and insisted she was happy.
‘This is me being happy’: Britney Spears assured she was being true and authentic to herself as she addressed her haters on Instagram on Friday (pictured July 2)
‘I get how some people might not like my posts or even understand them, but this is Me being happy ….. this is Me being authentic and as real as it gets !!!!! I want to inspire people to do the same and just be themselves without pleasing others ….. that’s the key to happiness,’ Britney wrote on Instagram, along with a string of pink floral emojis.
The passage Britney posted read: ‘Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.’
Still, fans could not help but express their concern about the singer’s well-being.
Worried followers assured the pop star they merely wanted to make sure she was doing OK.

‘We just wanna make sure you’re okay,’ wrote Instagram user haileyweddington.
‘I think some people are just really concerned about you,’ commented jade_schoeman.
Fans have indeed been concerned about the super star, with the #FreeBritney hashtag trending once again in recent days.
A Change.org petition has garnered more than 82,000 signatures to let her hire a lawyer to get her out of her conservatorship.
The petition reads: ‘Since 2008 Britney Spears has been held in a conservatorship, this gives her conservator (Jamie Spears) full control over her life, body and finances/estate. Conservatorships are typically used for SEVERELY mentally ill individuals or people in comas.

‘Having been on 3 world tours with dangerous flying and fire stunts, it’s safe to say she is sane enough to feed and clothe herself. With this conservatorship, she is unable to properly fight for her freedom as she isn’t legally allowed to hire her own lawyer. We need this petition so that Britney can hire her own lawyer and live a normal life as a 38-year-old woman with two kids.’
The #FreeBritney movement gained traction last March, after she entered a psychiatric facility, which many believed to be against her will.
After fans protested outside of West Hollywood City Hall the next month, Britney took to Instagram to assure them ‘all is well.’
Her father Jamie, 68, stepped down as her conservator back in September, and her care manager Jodi Montgomery took over as a temporary conservator, with the next hearing postponed to September, amid COVID-19.
The latest #FreeBritney resurgence was sparked after Kanye West’s bipolar disorder and past opioid abuse came up amid his bizarre presidential bid, highlighting a double standard around gender and mental health.
One fan tweeted: ‘A man has a mental breakdown, he runs for president. A woman has a mental breakdown, she’s stripped of all basic rights. Kanye’s a joke and #FreeBritney. I hate Hollywood.’
