Britney Spears (39) has again caused unrest among her fans, after she reported on Instagram that she had locked herself in her bathroom. And while she didn’t do so for worrisome reasons, the singer’s description of the incident has raised eyebrows with her fans.
“He also couldn’t get the lock off, so we had to alert security”
‘At 2 am I decided to take a bath. I had new Victoria’s Secret fragrance lotion, which makes me sleep better. As I walked into the bathroom, I saw some leftover coffee from the morning, but as dirty as it looked, I didn’t throw it away. Then I looked for my face wash, which was nowhere to be found. After 15 minutes of searching I realized that the face wash was probably in the other bathroom, but when I wanted to go there I found out that I was ‘trapped’ because the door wouldn’t open anymore,’ says Britney.
The singer tried to open the door with all her might and called her friend Sam Asghari, but he had been asleep for a while. “So I was locked in that fucking bathroom and my boyfriend didn’t wake up, he still sleeps through an earthquake. I kept yelling for him to open the door and finally he came. He couldn’t get the lock off either, so we had to alert security.’
It took 15 minutes for Britney to get on the phone with a security guard, who told her it would take a little longer. “In the meantime, I went to clean the bathroom and just as I was wondering if I should take a shower, I looked at the door and it looked like it was opening. It was like something happened to that door, I could see it very clearly. And suddenly the auxiliaries were there, yay! To stay awake a bit, I drank the old leftover coffee, after which I felt the energy come back. The security guards managed to open the door and eventually free me.’
Fans are divided on Britney’s post. Some of them think that this is a disguised message to her so much desired freedom and that the bathroom serves as a metaphor. Others think she’s pretty lost. ‘Who takes a bath at 2 a.m., especially if your friend is already asleep? And that he sleeps at that time is quite normal. What kind of weird behavior is this and why do you want to share it with us? Maybe you still can’t access your social media accounts and your dad’s team is trying to brand you as ‘crazy’ again.”
