Britney Spears’ mom isn’t letting the star forget about her talent.
The 39-year-old singer took to Instagram on Friday (March 19) to share a throwback video of herself singing The Jets’ “You Got It All,” and captioning the post with an uplifting message from her mother, Lynne Spears.
“Geez … My mom sent this to me and reminded me that I can sing!!!!” the pop star wrote. “She said ‘You never sing anymore … you need to again!!!!’”
Spears added, “I’ve actually never watched this performance … it’s definitely from a while ago !!!! It’s from one of the first trips I took alone … mostly I just remember saying ‘WOW Singapore.’”
Spears’ post drew comments from thousands of supportive fans echoing her mom’s encouraging words. “Please sing again,” one fan pleaded. Another wrote, “Listen to your mom and release the album.”
In February, Spears shared another throwback video of herself performing “Toxic” in 2017, reminding fans that she’s enjoying her time away from the stage.
“I’ll always love being on stage …. but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life !!!! Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!!
She added, “We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens!!!!”
Spears shared the “Toxic” throwback clip amid the conservatorship battle with her father, Jamie Spears. The singer has been in a conservatorship overseen predominantly by her dad since 2008. Now, many supporters of the #FreeBritney movement have come forward questioning whether a conservatorship over her personal and financial life still needs to be in place.
