Britney Spears shares the real reason she shut down her Instagram account

After Britney Spears deleted her Instagram account, fans quickly became worried about the singer. The Ventura County Sheriff said that after receiving multiple calls on the evening of January 24, police went to Spears' home in California "out of an abundance of caution" to "check on her well-being and determine that she was safe and not in danger." . A spokesman for the office later confirmed to People magazine . Although the Grammy winner previously addressed the incident on Twitter, she's now explaining why she disabled Instagram in the first place.

"Yes, this is me...I'm alive and well," Spears tweeted on January 28, along with a clip of herself "living her best life" in the gym video. "I shut down Instagram because so many people said I looked like a dancing idiot and that I looked crazy. I honestly tried my best but seeing people talking about it freely on TV was frustrating. I feel uneasy... and yes, it hurts my feelings."

The musician described herself as "sensitive," adding that she would "rather take a break" and go on an "ice cream diet." "When I shut down Instagram, my fans got worried and sent the police to my house, which really shocked me," she continued. "...It really is uncalled for...I love my fans but those who do this aren't really fans and honestly I feel like it's a way to make me look bad!!!"

In the same Twitter post, Spears also commented on an incident at a Los Angeles restaurant in early January, which TMZ described as a "bizarre meltdown" that reportedly prompted her and husband Sam Asgari to "rush out” restaurant. "I mean come on damn...yesterday in a restaurant three girls came up to me drunk and loud and sat next to me and smelled so strongly of alcohol right in my face... Reminded me of my wedding...I was traumatized..." Spears explained. “This time I said please get off me…yeah…it’s Britney bitch! I woke up and spoke for myself…can you believe it?? ?Honestly, I can't with that being said, please know again that I'm doing my best..."

Finally, Spears assured her "true fans" that she is "alive, fine, healthy and ready to start the day - a new morning!!!"

The singer, whose 13-year supervision period ends in November 2021, made similar remarks to fans when she spoke out about police welfare checks on January 26. "As we all know, the police were called to my home due to some prank calls," she began her statement on Twitter. "I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded. The police never entered my home and when they came to my door they quickly realized there was no problem and left immediately ”

Spears continued, "When this became news, I felt like I was gaslighted, bullied, and once again portrayed in a terrible and unfair way by the media. During this time in my life, I truly I hope the public and fans I care about can respect my privacy and move forward."
