Britney Spears posted a striking portrait of herself alongside a cryptic caption that left little room for interpretation: "F*** with me ... I dare you !!!"
She punctuated this daring statement with a resolute middle finger emoji, making her sentiment crystal clear.
Britney's unconventional message came hot on the heels of her sharing a "re-edited" video featuring her dancing provocatively in revealing attire.
Interestingly, this video had originally surfaced before her estranged husband, Sam Asghari, initiated divorce proceedings.
The video showcased Britney confidently modeling an array of lingerie sets, gracefully twirling and moving to the rhythm of French singer Indila's S.O.S.
She commenced the video sporting a striking red halter bikini top matched with the corresponding bottoms.
In another outfit change, she switched into a black and aqua-colored lace bralette, which keen-eyed fans would recognize from a dancing video she shared two weeks earlier, set to the same song.
Worry has mounted for pop sensation Britney Spears, particularly since her separation from Sam Asghari, who was widely perceived to have had a positive influence on her life.
Over the weekend, Britney broke her silence about the divorce, expressing that she was "a little shocked" by the turn of events.
In the aftermath of their separation, she has shown a commitment to staying active and enjoying life to the fullest.
This includes throwing a divorce party and sharing more dance videos, using the art form as a means of self-expression and resilience during this challenging time in her life.
