Britney Spears is showing off her bikini body while on a tropical vacation with her sons, proving that the pop princess responded quickly to some unwanted body criticism.
Earlier this year, Britney was featured in some slightly embarrassing features while she was filming a music video with Iggy Azalea, with photographers catching her showing off stomach rolls. While it may have been the result of some bad posture — Britney was slouching forward a bit, not a flattering pose for anyone — Spears apparently took the criticism to heart.
Spears reportedly went on a crash diet, telling friends that it was the “biggest she’s ever been,” OK! magazine reported. The source added that Britney “was in tears over how much she’d let herself go.”
“It was a big wake-up call and she’s been religiously getting back into shape,” the insider said.
The wake-up call seems to have worked. This week, Britney Spears was photographed in a bikini while hanging out with her sons, Jayden and Sean, in a Hawaiian vacation. She was spotted hanging out on the beach in a purple two-piece swimsuit, splashing on the beach and jumping into the water.
Britney also shared some of the pictures on Instagram.
The outfit earned praises from Us Weekly.
“The ‘Piece of Me’ songstress, 33, worked the itty-bitty swimsuit—a perfect match to her newly minted lavender tresses!—while posing with her boys in what looked like quite the luxe swimming pool at her Hawaiian hotel.
“Sean, 9, and Jayden, 8, looked thrilled to be joining her. Both boys (shared with Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline) wore ear-to-ear grins while holding onto their mama’s waist.”
While she’s been focusing on her health, Britney has also been keeping quite busy in her career. She is reportedly in talks to extend her residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, but she may be leaving for bigger plans.
“If Spears doesn’t sign a new deal, the last of her 142 shows at The Axis at Planet Hollywood will take place from August through October with the final performances happening over New Year’s Weekend,” E! News reported. “Sources tell me Spears hasn’t indicated yet what she wants to do. There’s some buzz of launching a concert tour. As we’ve previously reported, she’s been in the studio recently working on new music.”
