Britney Spears has long displayed her passion with knives, as evidenced by her use of them in live performances, in addition to her numerous Instagram videos. The pop diva recently turned to social media to perform a deadly dance with two butcher knives.
The 42-year old was holding the razor-sharp big blades with the caption, “I started playing in the kitchen with knives today” while she rubbed and even clapped the blades together while dancing, TMZ reported.
Because Spears clearly isn’t trained to hold or play with knives, the whole thing was incredibly dangerous and may even be called a dance of death. Knife-wielding requires specialised training, which she lacks.
But that didn’t stop her from juggling those blades and dancing wildly, even falling and nearly slamming them into her.
Watch the video here:
Spears had suffered from a lot of anxiety, stress, fatigue, and depression after her 13-year conservatorship period was completed, forcing her carers to keep certain materials away from her, one of which being knives owing to her’suicidal tendencies’ at the time.
According to TMZ, Britney regarded knives as a kind of defence since she was afraid of being re-institutionalized. According to one source, Spears maintains knives in every section of her house, including her bedroom and bathroom, because she “was paranoid someone was going to get her, and she needed the knives as protection.”
Now, as the singer is divorcing her husband Sam Asghari and estranged from her family, the new video is alarming.
