Britney Spears has shared a number of portrait photos of herself on vacation in the Pacific wearing the ultimate beachside outfit—absolutely nothing.
The pop icon posed fully nude for a series of Instagram pictures on Thursday, covering her nipples and vagina with cherry blossom symbols and letting her dyed blonde hair flow past her elbows. Aside from the cute flower emojis, the photos—which were likely snapped by her fiancé Sam Asghari—are completely unedited.
“Playing in the Pacific never hurt anybody 😉💋🙊 !!!! Pssss no photo edits … the tub curves 😂😂😬😬 !!!” she captioned the post.

The ‘tub curves’ is a reference to the bathtub in the background, which has an indented design. With so many celebrities accidentally exposing their photoshop handiwork with suspicious curves and blurs, it’s no surprise Britney felt the need to clarify.
A number of other shots show the A-list star soaking up some Vitamin D on an idyllic beach in red bikini bottoms and brown sunglasses. Britney's fairy design lower back tattoo, which she got done when she was 18, is also visible in the summery pictures.
The Grammy award winner's fans were quick to react to the post, with many celebrating the singer's liberated look in light of her recent legal triumph. The au-natural photoshoot comes just one day after it was announced that Britney's father, Jamie Spears, had been removed from her controversial conservatorship.
Britney was placed under legal guardianship in 2008 after a Los Angeles judge ruled she was mentally incapable of managing her own affairs. Control of her finances was subsequently allocated to her father, who was also her former manager.
Britney spoke publicly about the conservatorship at a court hearing for the first time in June, revealing she has been "traumatized" by its "abusive" conditions. She also made allegations against her team of a forced IUD, claiming that they refused to allow her to have more children with her now-fiancé Sam. Perhaps most notably, she condemned her father's role in the conservatorship, accusing him of controlling her, "one hundred thousand percent."
Her powerful statements echoed many of the sentiments shared in the bombshell New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears, as well as those of the fan-driven movement, Free Britney.
Jamie's suspension as Britney's conservator on Wednesday was welcomed by the superstar, who took to Instagram to share a celebratory message with her 34m followers.
"A beautiful day here in paradise celebrating 🥳🏝☀️ !!!!!!" she captioned a video of her and Sam riding a boat through turquoise waters.

At the request of Britney's attorney, the judge has appointed Californian accountant John Zabel to be her temporary conservator following the dismissal of her father. The singer will appear again in court on November 12, a date that could mark the long-awaited end of her conservatorship. Legal experts have suggested that if Britney can prove to Zabel she is capable of handling her own finances, the judge might finally grant her the freedom she's chased for nearly 13 years.
