Britney Spears justifies Her ‘Disturbing’ Knife Dance, Saying It Wasn’t As Big Of A Deal As People Made It Out To Be.
Pop music fans have become used to Britney Spears’ hyperkinetic dances on Instagram. However, this week’s viral video of the singer spinning butcher knives around his body drew criticism from critics who called it “disturbing.”
She claimed that the blades in the unusual video were artificial, but the sound that the pair of butcher knives made as they collided refutes this.
“I started playing in the kitchen with knives today!” Don’t worry, they are not real knives! “Halloween is soon,” she cryptically captioned.
Since supporters were unable to voice their disapproval in the comments section, they went to X (previously Twitter).
Britney Spears’ new video has her dancing while holding knives. A gun? “Please get this woman some help right away,” one person tweeted.
Britney Spears has a health problem. Putting out odd films, the most recent of which has them dancing with butcher blades. Someone else chimed in, “She needs mental help.”
Yesterday, in an Instagram post likely aimed at calming fans’ fears, Britney explained that she had only been mimicking fellow singer Shakira.
“Lighten up about the knives I’m copying, Shakira,” she captioned the photo.
Yes, Shakira did perform on stage at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards while wielding a knife in each hand. The singer’s dance was praised by many; one Instagram user even called it “life-changing.”
While Britney’s knife dance hasn’t received nearly as much acclaim, it has inspired many humorous memes. Some of the more hilarious ones are as follows:
