On Monday (June 3), the "Work" singer posted a home video of her busting moves to Eilish's song "Bad Guy." As if her dance skills weren't incredible enough, the pop star throws around a stuffed snake for the intense choreography. Which, if you can call, brings back memories of Spears' iconic showcase at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards when she used an actual python to perform "Slave 4 U" — albeit with gentler care.
Did we mention the Princess of Pop shouted out the teenage superstar? “Great song !! It made me pick up another @billieeilish,” Spears captioned the dance break video, tagging Eilish in the post, to which freaked out appropriately, writing back, "omg."
In another comment on the clip, Spears' boyfriend Sam Asghari also jokes, "The snake must be so dizzy after this."
Watch it below.
This is the latest in a series of recent videos we've seen of the "Womanizer" artist appearing in happier spirits. In Friday's Instagram post, she told fans, "after therapy and being too serious it’s so nice to be silly !!!!!” If Spears finds relief in being more carefree and relaxed these days, it's because she truly deserves the break. The star has been having a rough year after all.
The 37-year-old has been coping with her father's recovery after suffering a life-threatening colon rupture, and she's also been keeping up her own mental health after leaving an all-encompassing wellness facility. Not to mention her all-controlling conservatorship, which is apparently preventing the star to have "certain freedoms."
Since finishing 30 days in treatment, last we reported, doctors have been trying to figure out the appropriate mix of medication to help Spears maintain her mental health.
What's more, Spears' longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, told TMZ the entertainer may be unfit to perform ever again.
