Where is Britney Spears' mystery trip? Here's why Internet thinks her videos with Sam Asghari are 'staged'
Fans of Britney Spears are well aware of the #FreeBritney movement, aimed at getting the pop princess out of the conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears. Ever since the movement caught hold, fans of the singer have maintained a careful watch over all her social media handles, especially Instagram where she's most active.
Recently, Britney has been posting a lot on Instagram. The 'Toxic' singer posted a series of images and videos on October 2. The first one was an image of a lioness with the caption, "Sometimes it’s better to stick your tongue out so you can breathe" followed by the hashtag '#FridayMood'. In the next post, a video of Britney at a beach in Hawaii, the singer wrote, "Just thought I’d recap some of my favorite moments from my trip to Hawaii!!! I always have an amazing time in Maui... lunch by the pool... a splash in the ocean... and a chocolate piña colada drink that tastes like an ice cream sundae!!!! They actually named the drink after me... Piña Britana — no shit!!!! Anyhow...this is a throwback of some of my adventures there...GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!"
Then she posted a fun photo reading 'Whatever... I'm Getting Cheese Fries'. But, what caught the fans' attention, were two videos she posted back-to-back – the same video twice but once without music and then with 24kGoldn's 'Mood' playing – in which she's seen boarding a private jet with boyfriend Sam Asghari. Britney captioned the first writing, "A little trip Sam Asghari and I took!!!!!! I love traveling...when it’s safe to of course!!!!" The second video was captioned saying, "Wanted to post this with music too...!!!!" Both Britney and Sam are wearing masks in the video while boarding the private jet.
The fans, though, weren't convinced it's a genuine video of the two going on vacation. The top comment on the post reads, "Who wants to bet they didn’t go anywhere and this is just for show... to make it look like she's not imprisoned," while another fan wrote, "This seems very staged to me, especially with the way she turns around and waves." More fans even went on to say that the lady in the video is not Britney, "Cover up entire body and wear a mask... who else thinks this is NOT BRITNEY!???" while another expressing similar sentiments, wrote, "Anybody else thinks this doesn’t look like her at all?!? I mean I know she’s wearing a mask but..."
On the same post, more fans commented the same. A comment with a thousand likes read, "Anyone else notice how staged Sam always looks with Britney?? He is definitely another handler, I dare you to change my mind." Another fan wrote, accusing Sam, "He’s really living off your name and money." Yet another user, calling the video staged, wrote, "These videos feel so planned... nice jet tho."
On the next video — the one with 24kGoldn's 'Mood' playing — a Britney fan account commented, "this seems so staged! Especially when she's turn around and waving," followed by, "this seems very staged to me, especially the way she's waving. This is not Britney!!" Another user simply commented, "This is all staged."
