Britney Spears Deactivates Instagram Account After Announcing Retirement from Music Industry


Lots of craziness after the latest Britney Spears post on Instagram.

“Just so we’re clear most of the news is trash!!!” the singer wrote on Instagram.
“They keep saying I’m turning to random people to do a new album … I will never return to the music industry!!!”

The BBC and other outlets linked to this post. But now it’s gone, along with Britney’s account. She’s deactivated the whole thing. She’s done it before, and it came back. So who knows?

The pop tart still a Twitter account, but hasn’t posted there since before Christmas.

Her book. “The Woman in Me,” a bestseller for all of December, is on its way off the charts.

Could she make another album? Sure– why not? Get some good songs assembled, make Britney listen to a producer, have some guest stars and she’s good to go. A couple of salacious videos won’t hurt either!
