Britney Spears posted an oblique comment about relationships to her Instagram on Friday.
The 41-year-old pop superstar reposted text reading, ‘In every relationship there’s the person who falls asleep instantly and the other person who lies awake wondering how that’s even possible.’
The post was credited to the blog Thoughts From Aisle 4, which is written by Marlene Kern Fischer.
It wasn’t clear from Britney’s comment why exactly she chose the post, or if it was supposed to refer to her marital situation with her husband Sam Asghari, 29.
In the lengthy caption that followed, Britney appeared to deny a recent report that she has been going overboard on coffee and Red Bull energy drinks, to the point that she allegedly stays up for multiple days in a row while over-caffeinated.
Head scratcher: Britney Spears, 41, shared an oblique comment about relationships to Instagram on Thursday. It follows disturbing reports claiming that she stays up for days on end after overusing caffeine and that she has a ‘fascination’ with knives
Marriage: It wasn’t clear if she considered herself to be either of the people in the relationship post
‘I’m sharing because summer is around the corning and I’m sweating my toots off like there’s no tomorrow !!!’ Britney wrote, though her explanation didn’t seem to have anything to do with the post.
Spears’ fans have lately worried about the state of her marriage after she took a solo trip to Hawaii without her husband. She was seen during the tropical trip without her wedding ring on multiple occasions.
‘Not really to get in shape but I like to sweat !!! I feel like I’ve accomplished something, you know ???’ she continued.
She added that she was giving ‘ballet lessons’ a try, though it was difficult for her because ‘keeping my head held high is not always easy if your confidence level isn’t so high !!!’
In her hyperactive comment, she acknowledge that the ‘meditation’ aspect of yoga is ‘good,’ but she said she wasn’t ‘into it at the moment.’
‘I’m reposting a lot of footage because it’s good to backtrack when a lot has happened and to look back and realize it makes sense now !!!’ she continued, without explanation. ‘My mind gets busy and sometimes that can be an easy target to mess with.’
In response to the recent reports of her allegedly dangerous caffeine use, Britney claimed she was now ‘sticking to watermelon juice, which is the weirdest thing ever.’
She seemed to compare it to coffee, writing, ‘I was told for years I can’t have coffee and now that I can it’s my pride … I can’t even look at it !!!’
‘And green tea is my prized possession !!!,’ she added.
On her own: It comes after she took a solo trip to Hawaii without husband Sam Asghari, where she was seen without her wedding ring multiple times; seen in 2019 in LA
Hyperactive: TMZ recently reported that Spears overuses caffeine and can stay up for three days on coffee, Red Bull, Celsius and dandelion tea; seen in 2017 in LA
Laid back: Britney’s boyfriend Sam cut a casual figure as he left the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake on Thursday
The Toxic singer then called her readers ‘You clever little turds,’ though it wasn’t clear who she was referring to.
Regardless, she tried to downplay TMZ’s reporting on her caffeine overuse.
‘Sorry but I never stay up late with Red Bull !!! It is absolutely the worst drink ever,’ she said.
Sources with direct knowledge of Spears claimed to the publication that she often drinks coffee, Red Bull, Celsius and dandelion tea.
According to them, she can sometimes stay up for three days in a row, presumably due to the caffeine.
Spears has previously said she was prescribed multiple medications that are often used to treat bipolar disorder, though she does not appear to have said she has that particular diagnosis.
However, multiple sources have reported that she does have bipolar disorder
People with bipolar disorder can alternate between depressive states and mania, during which they can sometimes stay up for multiple days in a row. Caffeine consumption may also precede manic or hypomanic phases in people with BD.
Britney continued with a seeming non sequitur — ‘I make jewelry, candles and doll clothes … Okay, so what ???’ — though she may have been describing things she likes to do during those times when she is allegedly up for days.
Disturbing: A source claimed to TMZ that Britney lives in ‘mortal fear’ that ‘someone will come in the middle of the night, strap her to a gurney and take her to a psych ward.’ She reportedly has a ‘fascination’ with knives (seen above last month)

A source claimed the singer–songwriter lives in ‘mortal fear’ that ‘someone will come in the middle of the night, strap her to a gurney and take her to a psych ward.’
Britney’s younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears previously claimed that when she was just 13, Britney pulled her into a closet while holding a knife and repeatedly said that she was ‘scared.’
However, Jamie Lynn clarified that she didn’t believe her sister planned to hurt her or anyone else.
