Britney Spears Says She Was ‘Losing It’ During Vegas Residency: ‘I Wanted To Crawl In A Hole’

Britney Spears reflects on details of her Vegas residency in a revealing new Instagram post, saying she was 'losing it.'

Britney Spears has expertly crafted a whole new life around her recent marriage to Sam Asghari and her stunning new $12M Calabasas mansion. But the pop princess is prone to looking back on the past for perspective, and that’s exactly what she did via Instagram on June 27. “Do you know how many times I literally wanted to crawl in a hole and feel like an idiot while looking at social media ???” she wrote, alongside a smart phone emoji.

The post included a video of an apparent Robert Pattinson lookalike dancing, shuffle style, to Katy Perry‘s hit “Firework.” The video then cuts to Britney doing the same little jig alongside a friend. “These women with a style game and hot bodies … s*** !!!” she continued. “The excitement of fast shooting with edits these days … In my conservatorship, each shot in my videos was like 4 years !!! My last commercial I did with @elizabetharden I went into a studio with a girl with the exact same reading glasses I had !!!”

“I did somewhat of a fast edit … so I’m well aware by saying “f*** it” and leaving the whole system behind … I am sure it looks like a huge fail dancing in my garage or having a huge hole in the wall from burning down my gym,” the down-to-earth singer shared, before reflecting on her hugely successful Las Vegas residency.

“But the truth is the path of doing shows in Vegas … the responsibility of so many people … well I got older and the restrictions on just being human having to call a doctor for permission to get Tylenol for a headache made me lose it … for a headache !!! I was literally losing it … I still lose it … I lose my phone 3x a day, can’t find my shades when they are on top of my head … I’m human and I do my best !!! I know I completely suck most of the time but I still try my best … here is a post of me trying to be like Batman … it’s a hard world but we’re all fireworks as @katyperry says … I mean ask Batman if he knows !!!”

Britney has made no secret of her dissatisfaction with her time in Las Vegas, due to friction with her brother and her father. She recently eviscerated her brother Bryan Spears via Instagram, claiming he wouldn’t allow her to have a drink during the residency and wanted control over her. “None of you ever wanted it (the residency) to end because you all loved telling me what to do and treating me like absolutely nothing !!!” she wrote in part in a lengthy June 14 Instagram post.

Still, her latest post proves she can look back at a difficult time with humor and literally dance it off!
