Do you we need to hit you with that one more time? Yes, Britney Spears is a painter now, and yes, people are actually buying her work.
The singer, who arguably possesses the best abs in the business, took to Instagram recently to show the world her skills with a paintbrush – while simultaneously wearing a crop top, obviously. Miss American Dream Since She Was 17 captioned the cheeky video ‘sometimes you just gotta play!!!!!!’ followed by a multitude of your favourite emojis. Mozart’s cheery Turkish March was used as the background music.
The colourful watercolour work, which features five flowers in shades of blue and purple, was purchased for a whopping $10,000 as part of a charity auction benefiting the victims of last month’s shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, where Spears is currently living and performing.
The buyer, former host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous Robin Leach, was actually acting as auctioneer at the time he purchased the illustrious work. It seems that, just like the rest of the world, he wanted a piece of her.
The video of Brit Brit creating the work has been viewed more than 4.6 million times, so maybe she’s on to something. What is there left to say except: you better paint b***h!
