Britney Spears has her reasons for stripping down!
The ‘Lucky’ singer, 39, shared a slideshow of topless photos on Instagram where she opened up about her body image.
“No guys … I didn’t get a boob job in just a week … nor am I pregnant … I have boobs in these pics cause I devoured food,” she captioned photos of herself today. “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 realising 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 !!!”
Spears also admitted there were several times she felt “self-conscious” about her body during live performances.
However, she’s now feeling empowered by sharing naked photos to free herself from the “pain” of having the world judge her.
“[It’s] because I was born into this world naked and I honestly feel like the weight of the would has been on my shoulders and it’s made me view myself that way !!!!” the singer wrote. “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 !!! 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.”
She proceeded to thank her fans for inspiring her with the #FreeBritney campaign. In a huge win for Spears, her father Jamie Spears agreed to step down from his role as a conservator after maintaining control of her affairs since 2008.
She said, “There’s a way deeper meaning to the movement than you can ever imagine … my fans have always been so damn amazing and I love you all.”
The pop star remains under the care of Jodi Montgomery, who mangers her medical and personal affairs.
