Of all the things Britney Spears is known for – dropping tunes, posting inspirational quote tiles on Instagram, making it through 2007 – “painting” is not the one I would expect to be discussing today. But, alas, here we are in November 2017 and the singer has just sold a painting for $10,000 ($13,067 AUD). What a year we're having!
The watercolour painting of flowers was first seen in an ~iconic~ post that Britney shared to social media.
The video, in which the star sports an interesting mix of lingerie and athleisure, shows off her mad artistry skillz as she paints on an easel resting in some ivy in a luxe stone courtyard. It's very "romanticism meets You Better Work Bitch" - an instant classic, in other words.
In case you haven't seen the October 14th video a few thousand times like myself, allow me to share the totally candid moment with you...
Britney Spears, Queen of reinventing herself with new endeavours.
This week, the star sold her floral watercolour in aid of Vegas Cares, a charity raising money for victims of the shooting in Las Vegas. It was snapped up at auction for $10,000 by entertainment writer and reporter Robin Leach, who posed proudly with his purchase on the night.
Snaps to Robin for picking up the painting and donating such a wonderful amount to the cause!
Now, let's all get behind Britney's whacky artistic career because it's really the gift the world deserves in 2018.
