Britney Spears gushes about 'joy' of lit candles despite setting gym on fire in 2020
Britney Spears confessed she's been taking a new medicine while gushing about her newfound freedoms following her conservatorship win. Despite accidentally burning down her home gym a year ago, the celebrity, 39, came to Instagram on Monday, November 29, to share her love for lighting candles around the holidays.
Britney shared a photo of herself smiling in front of a cosy fireplace decked up in holiday decor. The caption says, 'That beautiful … nice … and warm f***ing fuzzy feeling when you've been waiting patiently for 13 years to be able to live your life however you choose and it's finally here!!!!'
Less than a month ago, Jamie Spears' conservatorship was terminated in Los Angeles Superior Court and the pop princess seems to be in high spirits for the holidays after her "prayers" were answered. "Lighting my candles sure is a joy folks!!!" the 'Gimme More' singer wrote in the long post, along with three candles as emojis.
In April of 2020, Spears said that her home gym in Thousand Oaks, California had burnt down six months prior due to an accident involving two candles. "It was an accident... but yes... I burnt it down," Spears said on Instagram. "I walked past the door to the gym and flames... BOOM!!!!"
"By the Grace of God, the alarm went off," she claimed, adding that no one was hurt in the fire. "I haven't been in here in around six months since I set fire to my gym. Unfortunately," she wrote, expressing her disappointment. "I had two candles, and one thing led to another, and I burned it down," said the singer.
Spears also said that she's been on "the appropriate medicine" for a month and is feeling focused and optimistic. "And you might be surprised cause my prayers are pretty damn powerful ESPECIALLY when you're on the right medication just a month ago!!!!" she told her followers. "Damn I can actually pray …. it feels so good to just BE HERE !!!! I'M HERE … thanks to no doctor or conservatorship people … good God my friends … it's good to BE HERE and be PRESENT!!!!"
"Since I can actually PRAY now hopefully in just 3 months there will be a shift for me." Spears continued. "…I mean who knows … I'm not gonna thank anyone I'm gonna pull a @snoopdogg and say I thank ME for believing in ME!!!!!"
The Lucky singer, who is engaged to actor Sam Asghari, 27, had a busy day on social media, uploading never-before-seen photos from 2020, a TikTok-style video discussing work habits in the midst of the epidemic, and a video of her dancing in her house.
The Grammy winner's quest to terminate the conservatorship coincided with the #FreeBritney campaign, in which her fans rallied around the country to protest the conservatorship, which was imposed in 2008 amid a slew of incidents that raised questions about the pop diva's mental health situation.
Spears stated during a hearing in June about her desire to cancel the arrangement, declaring, "I just want my life back." She said,'It's been 13 years. And it's enough. It's been a long time since I've owned my money. And it's my wish and my dream for all of this to end without being tested."
