Britney Spears Fans Suspect Something Is Afoot Amid Odd Social Media Posts

Britney Spears’ conservatorship was dissolved about one year ago, but concerns about the singer’s safety have recently escalated on social media following a slew of odd posts from the star. Of course, Spears has a persistent, charming history of off-the-wall social media posts—but what’s worrying her fans is that some of them of the newer ones seem recycled or edited, and she hasn’t been seen in public for some time. This has convinced TikTok conspiracy theorists that she’s secretly missing or unwell, and her husband Sam Asghari is covering this up by taking control of her social media accounts.

I want to be clear before taking you down this rabbit hole with me: There is little to no evidence of this. But it’s certainly notable how sincerely Spears’ fans seem to distrust Asghari—to the point that some viral videos claim Spears never even returned alive from the couple’s July honeymoon in Fiji, sparking the viral #WhereIsBritney hashtag.

Last week, on Tuesday, Spears appeared to briefly deactivate her Instagram account yet again, prompting Asghari to take to his own Instagram stories the following day to clear the air. “Social media can be traumatizing,” he wrote. “Sometimes it’s good to take a break.” Asghari continued, “She has her voice and is a free woman. I have respect for her privacy and I protect it at all times. Thank you to all of her protective fans.” In another post, he wrote, “Out of respect for her privacy I don’t post her 247. I ask for permission if I ever do.”

Not long before these posts, Asghari caught heat from Spears’ fans for appearing to post an Instagram Live without the singer’s consent. In November, when Asghari was Live on the app, he asked Spears if he could show her to his followers, to which, off-camera, she replied, “I have nothing to say. I don’t want to talk to them right now.” The incident drew backlash from Spears’ fans who said Asghari had violated her privacy.

But to some Spears fans on TikTok, the incident was a minor slip-up in a greater conspiracy against Spears. A number of videos shared shortly after Spears deactivated Instagram last week speculated that recent posts from her and Asghari actually feature a body double of Spears, insisting that the women pictured lack her characteristic features, like a mole on her face or the tattoo on her foot. Some said that a post appearing to show Spears at Nobu last week isn’t real and was edited to include her, citing the apparent messiness of her hair. One of the videos theorizing this was flooded with comments further pointing out that there were no paparazzi snaps of Spears at Nobu because the woman pictured was a body double, ostensibly with Spears’ face Photoshopped on top of the woman’s in photos posted online. “Sam really thought he slick,” one user commented.

The lack of pap pics of Spears lately is a recurring point for Spears fans. Other theory videos have singled out a post earlier this month in which Spears lavished some very unexpected praise upon her younger sister Jamie Lynn, whom Spears has long accused of being complicit in Spears’ conservatorship and abuse. As of Friday, when Spears posted a suggestive video of herself dancing to a Christmas song and eating cake on the floor, some said the video was old, as it has no relevance to the caption alluding to her recent 41st birthday.

Another theory is that Spears has never had control of her Instagram account even since her conservatorship lifted, and whoever doeshave control purposefully posts more unhinged content timed to new hearings or developments in her ongoing legal fightagainst her dad. One hearing took place place last Wednesday. Asghari, some of her fans posit, has essentially recreated the very conservatorship from which Spears struggled for years trying to get free.

“Celebrity is actually dead and uses a body double” is a pretty common internet conspiracy theory. See: right-wing websites during the time Hillary Clinton got pneumonia in 2016, the great Avril Lavigne replacement theory, or, my personal favorite, the Melania Trump body double theory.

Nevertheless, I’ll never blame Britney fans for being afraid for her safety. Spears was in a conservatorship that controlled and surveilledevery aspect of her life for 13 years. And for a while, her father and others in the conservatorship did a pretty decent job making it look like everything was OK—even as, on the inside, Spears testified that she was being denied time with her children, forced into abusive rehabilitation centers, and required against her will to keep an IUD in, despite wanting more children.

The #FreeBritney crowd has been right about some things in the past, and Spears’ social media activities have been a bit out there lately. But I’m not convinced the singer is buried somewhere in Fiji and that Asghari is employing a rotation of body doubles to keep up pretenses. Spears deserves nothing but safety, freedom, and love after everything she’s had to endure, and to that end, I can’t imagine that a smattering of viral conspiracy theories about whether she’s even alive are particularly pleasant for her to watch.

Johnny Depp got his launch in Wes Craven’s classic slasher Agony On Elm Street, but unfortunately observers missed out on his New Agony return.

As a director, Wes Craven was noway short of whim-whams. The horror legend made his mark in the kidney with Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes, a brace of bleak, unstinting 70s exploitation pictures that hid sharp social commentary under a lot of tense set- pieces, horrible spear, and hopelessly dark plot twists.

Over the decades, Craven continued to review the horror kidney with ballot- spawning slasher masterpieces like Scream and Agony On Elm Street as well as further outré chow similar as The Serpent and the Rainbow and My Soul to Take. still, Craven’s unerring whim-whams was shaken at one unanticipated point in his outstanding career.

Luckily, this did n’t deprive observers of a horror classic. still, Craven’s query did mean that horror suckers missed out on a potentially memorable scene that noway made it into the Agony On Elm Street series despite the director’s ambitious plans.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Published

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.

In the series, Ortega’s character is in the middle of a love-triangle between Tyler and Xavier, and fans also wish to see a relationship between Wednesday and Enid. However, while Ortega has grown up in the public eye, she has been very protective of her personal life.

As she is set to appear in a romantic comedy with her co-star Percy Hynes White, who recently has been accused by several women of abuse on Twitter (neither the actor or Netflix has addressed them so far), many wonder if they’re romantically involved. Check out what we know.

Does Jenna Ortega have a boyfriend?

As far as we know, Ortega isn’t dating anyone at the moment. However, fans have speculated that Ortega and Hyne White could be an item because she invited him as her date for the Golden Globes. However, anything is confirmed and they can just be friends.

On the other hand, per Netflix Life, J-14 magazine reported that Ortega left the Globes after-party with ‘The Fabelmans’ star Gabriel LaBelle. Certainly, that doesn’t mean anything either but it’s another rumor that is around.

Also, as we said before, Ortega has always been private about her love life. In the past, she has been linked with actor Asher Angel and singer Jacob Sartorius. But, per Capital FM, Ortega denied that she dated any of the guys she has been linked to online during a podcast appearance in 2019.

Per the source, when asked what the craziest thing she ever heard about herself was, she said: “Probably relationships. According to the internet, I dated like six guys, [but I] dated none of them.”
