Britney Spears, the music icon, is turning to a different type of art to deal with the stress in her daily life.
The multi-talented pop singer, who is currently involved in a bitter conservatorship fight with her father, posted an Instagram video Tuesday showing her painting on a large sheet of white paper. It was a seemingly therapeutic moment she described as an “expression of her feelings.”
“As you know, there is a lot going on in my life right now and today I felt overwhelmed so I went and bought white paper and paint from Michael’s! She wrote the caption to the post.
The sped-up video shows Spears in an oversized white shirt walking around the sheet of paper and using a variety of colors on her abstract painting. A cute white dog also checks out Spears’ work several times in the clip.

“I wanted color, and this is me playing around!” She wrote. “Ok, I don’t consider myself a professional artist but I felt like one!” You can find it here!
“This is how I feel at the moment… rebellious… bright… bold… spontaneous… magic… it’s my true colors!” She added,
The “Toxic”, and “Oops! … The caption to her video by “I Did It Again” suggested that the piece wasn’t completely abstract.
She wrote, “If you look closely, you can see a fish in that somewhere (sic),”
Spears, 39, is trying to get her father removed as conservator of her estate. She described the arrangement as abusive in a shocking statement she made to a Los Angeles judge last week. Her lawyer filed Monday a formal petition seeking to have Jamie Spears, her $60 million fortune manager, “suspensioned and removed.”
The petition accuses the father of lining up his pockets with his daughter’s own money and making her life a “Kafkaesque nightmare.” Instead of benefiting her, the conservatorship “impairs Ms. Spears’s mental health, her well-being, and her ability to pursue and continue with her extraordinary career,” the petition states.
