Pop singer Britney Spears showed Instagram followers just how limber and fit she is in a new video on Saturday. Sporting pink shorts and a blue-green sports bra, Spears is outside on a sunny day practicing backflips. With her blond hair in a ponytail and out of her way, Spears nails the flip, but that’s only part of what had followers excited about the new video. With comments like, “I don’t know if I’m more shooketh for the back flip or for the Justin song in the background!” as well as “Wait. JT AS THE MUSIC!?!?” and “intrigued by the song choice……,” the Justin Timberlake song “Lovestoned/I Think She Knows” had fans of the 36-year-old flashing back to the days of Spears and Timberlake dating back in the late ’90s and early 2000s.
Other followers asked if Spears would be performing backflips as part of her recently announced Las Vegas gig. Spears announced her 2019 residency on the strip at the Park Theater at Park MGM. Hollywood Reporter shared that it will kick off in February, 2019, and will be titled “Britney: Domination.”
Andrew Wallet, the co-conservator of Spears’ estate, hit the news this week when Radar Online reported that he’s suing the performer for $426,000 a year. He filed an affidavit on October 15 in which he claims that he believes he’s entitled to this sum because he saved her from ruin during her 2009 Circus Tour and prior Vegas residency by protecting her from people in possession of illegal substances.

Britney Spears has had a busy and productive 2018. She traveled to about 20 locations for her Piece of Me Tour from July to September and was honored by GLADD at the 29th Annual Vanguard Awards ceremony in April. The non-profit organization seeks to encourage the accurate and inclusive representation of those in the LGBTQ community in media.
During her acceptance speech, Spears spoke of the importance and value of being able to express who you are through art, even if you aren’t what most consider “normal.” Refinery 29 reported on comments from the president and CEO of GLAAD, Sarah Kate Ellis, about Spears’ value to the LGBTQ community.
“An irrefutable icon, Britney Spears has entertained the world while also embodying the spirit of GLAAD’s Vanguard Award by speaking out on significant issues that face her fans – from the Dream Act to anti-transgender bills in Texas. She is a force in the music world who has used her global platform to share messages of love and acceptance, something that the world needs today more than ever.”
