Oops, she did it again! Britney Spears is back in the headlines this week with a celebrity story you just won’t believe. Britney spends a lot less time in the spotlight than she used to, I mean, who doesn’t remember that 2007 breakdown? But she’s still one of our favourite celebrities and her latest headline grabbing antics have got people everywhere completely confused.
Everyone who grew up in the 90’s knows that there’s no doubting Britney’s musical talent (What? Crazy was a masterpiece!) but did you know that there’s more to Britney than just her voice and killer dance moves? Well Britney’s out to show us a hidden talent that has raised a lot of money for charity recently.
Yes, everyone’s favourite pop icon has found a new way to express herself. No longer satisfied with dominating the music industry, she’s now set her sights on the art world too. Her elaborate showgirl costumes are gone and replaced with a paint-splattered shirt as she paints her way to a masterpiece. But there’s a very good reason why Britney’s turned her attentions to the canvas, which she explained on Instagram recently.
Britney revealed her artistic talents in an Instagram video, which features Britney painting away in her beautiful garden, looking totally relaxed and at one with the world. At the end of the video, Britney’s watercolour masterpiece is revealed for the whole world to see. So let’s not wait any longer, let’s finally take a look at these paintings!
Oh, well that’s… Well. It’s definitely a painting. It definitely resembles something I’ve seen a talented five year old bring home from school so she’s got that going for her, I guess.
But love it or hate it, Britney Spears’ amazing paintings have caused a stir in the art world and one man has actually paid $10,000 for one of the canvases! It’s no surprise than anything and everything related to Britney can be sold with a hefty price tag, especially after the umbrella she used to attack the paparazzi was sold for $100,000 last year, but there was a very good reason behind his purchase. Here he is with his newly bought, one of a kind, genuine Britney.
Britney’s paintings were actually auctioned off in a charity auction that raised money for the victims of the Las Vegas shootings. 58 people tragically lost their lives in this event and 546 were left injured. Las Vegas has a special place in Britney’s heart, being the home of her highly successful show, so this horrific event really struck a chord with her and she wanted to help in any way that she could. Just goes to show that Britney’s always had her heart in the right place.
Britney left a video message for the auction goers which said, “The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it’s in that spirit that we move forward. All the proceeds from the winning bid go to Vegas Cares Memorial Fund. I appreciate your kindness and your generosity — I love you Vegas.” So it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks of the paintings, at the end of the day Britney’s doing a great thing that will make people happy! Haters gonna hate Britney, but when you’re doing so much good for people, who really cares what they think?
People all over the world are weighing in with what they think about Britney’s new love of painting, and not all of the comments are as kind as Britney’s been with her charitable donation. Some people absolutely love Britney’s paintings and think she should make more of them to raise more money for charity. Others aren’t so impressed with Britney’s artistic ability and would rather she put the paints down once and for all. Here’s what some of her commenters said about her artwork…
Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny that Britney’s art has had some serious impact and we can’t wait to see what she’s going to paint next! We’ve got no doubt that our favourite pop idol will be back in the press soon and we’re speculating about what could bring Britney back into the limelight. Perhaps a performance art piece where she paints more pretty flowers whilst singing and dancing along to Toxic? We can only dream. But whatever you do Britney, we just want you to keep being awesome.
