Britney Spears is back on Instagram after a weeklong hiatus ignited a host of conspiracy theories online.
The pop musician reactivated her account Wednesday to show off her new husband, Sam Asghari, and her new house, complete with a “sick” yard, a pool and a “hella fast” water slide.
“Haven’t been on my honeymoon yet,” Spears captioned the post, which includes a photo of the bikini-clad singer posing in the shallow end of the pool, as well as a video of Asghari diving into the deep end.
“Got married and moved into a new house around the same time … not the smartest thing to do … oh well it’s coming together … it’s so weird I wake up and everything is new … new pool … new kitchen … new bed … I think I’m in shock !!!”
After the Grammy winner’s Instagram page suddenly went dark last week — just days after she wed Asghari in Thousand Oaks, California — some speculated that ongoing Spears family drama prompted the “Toxic” hit-maker to abandon the app.
Around the time Spears exited Instagram, her father reportedly filed legal documents demanding that the performer sit for a deposition to answer questions about allegations she has leveled against him. The “Gimme More” artist also declined to invite her father, mother, sister and brother to her star-studded wedding earlier this month.
For what it’s worth, Spears did cryptically reference her family upon her Instagram return, writing, “my family has always had a way of letting me know … well I guess I have a pretty good way as well !!!”
Others hopefully interpreted Spears’ most recent Instagram cleanse as a signal that long-awaited new music from the vocalist was on the way, a la Beyoncé. But that doesn’t appear to be the case as Spears continues to adjust to her newfound freedom post-conservatorship.
“Figuring out a couple of things … I definitely like being outside but I also like being inside too,” Spears continued in Wednesday’s post.
“Change is so great … as my kids say … that’s fetch ... Since I’m so uncool … yes I will keep sharing … it keeps me on track ... I took a nice dip in my pool … it’s so bright and it has a nice chill spot … and a slide … I went down it 4 times already … I cut all my hair short and my husband just made me a steak … life is good.”
