Britney Spears has taken to social media to remind the world – and herself – why she is the princess of pop.

Spears posted a video of herself belting vocals in what appears to be a bathroom to Instagram on Wednesday. Spears also called out her family in a since-deleted caption for their lack of support during her conservatorship.

The caption read: “I just realised this today guys … after what my family tried to do to me three years ago … I needed to be my own cheerleader ‍♀️ !!!! God knows they weren’t …”

The Grammy-winning singer then went on to list some of her most notable career achievements, including selling “nearly 100 million records … worldwide” and “33.6 million albums in the U.S,” as well as ranking as “the 18th-best selling album artist in the Nielsen era.”

“No … I’m not auditioning for anything !!!!” Spears wrote. “I’m reminding myself and the world of who I am !!!! Yes … I will be my own cheerleader … why ????

“I’m here to remind my white ‘classy’ family that I haven’t forgotten what they did to me nor will I ever forget !!!!” the pop star added.

Fans were ecstatic to see the “ … Baby One More Time” hitmaker show off her vocal prowess, including fellow pop star Miley Cyrus, who commented: “#vocalbible.”

“You are a queen!!!!” user @Positiveandpeaceful wrote.

Spears has had a whirlwind 2021, a year which saw the termination of her nearly 14-year conservatorship, as well as the singer’s 40th birthday. In the legal realm, Spears’ conservatorship battle drags on, with her father Jamie Spears filing a petition last week to have his legal fees paid by his daughter’s near-$60 million estate.
