Britney Spears shares words of wisdom as she treks through her yard in a floral crop top and shorts


Britney Spears has been spoiling her 24.4million fans on Instagram with frequent (and often very quirky) updates on the social media platform, as she quarantines at her home in Sherman Oaks.

On Wednesday, the 38-year-old pop star appeared to have an epiphany while quoting Albert Einstein, as she shared a video of herself sashaying down her garden path to music, which happened to the be the 1989 New Age hit Orinoco Flow by Enya. 

‘Today I put my favorite white top on …. ran outside …. took my shoes off in the grass and realized that imagination is more powerful than knowledge,’ Britney captioned the video. 

Content queen: Britney Spears continued to bless her following with content by uploading a new video to her Instagram page on Wednesday afternoon

Einstein is well-known for the quote ‘imagination is more powerful than knowledge’, and Britney has proven herself to be a huge fan of the theoretical physicist over the years, regularly referencing him on her Instagram.

In 2016, Britney posted a portrait of Einstein, joking to fans: ‘Just an old buddy… we go way back’ alongside a winky-face emoji. 

In a similar post, she wrote: ‘So inspired by this guy. I just love looking at him. He will be the first person I speak to in heaven! #AlbertEinstein.’

Meanwhile, in the brief video, Britney trekked through her spacious backyard in a cropped floral blouse and a pair of beige low-rise shorts, while music played over top.

The Baby One More Time songstress gave some added glamour to her Instagram ensemble by sporting her go-to smokey eyeshadow look and her favorite pooka shell necklace.

‘We wanted everything to be sexy and monochromatic,’ Estee Stanley said of Britney’s vision for the video. 

With the help of costume designer Michael Bush they worked closely to create the iconic outfit.  

‘It was a last-minute thing to go to him and see if he could make something for us,’ said. ‘In [the music] world, everybody has to do everything in two minutes, so we knew he could pull it off. And he did.’

According to Stanley the red latex catsuit was made overnight for the video shoot and since latex is not a forgiving fabric, Britney has to pull through in the look.

‘If you put a latex outfit on, you’re immediately sweating, and I knew she was going to be dancing all day. I was nervous that she would pass out,’ Stanley explained. ‘After one take, I unzipped her, and it literally looked like a bucket of water poured out of this jumpsuit. She had a very intense day, to say the least.’ 

Britney went on to release seven more albums after Oops, with her latest being Glory in 2016. 

Known as the Princess of Pop, her work inspired other pop stars including Katy Perry and Meghan Trainor, she was honored wit the Billboard Millennium Award in 2016.
