Britney Spears let loose in a series of videos accusing the media of Photoshopping her bikini pictures.

In a video posted to Instagram on Monday night, the singer addressed her followers in a crop top and jeans. “Good morning, so this is the day after me on my boat ride. Do I look any different today then yesterday?” she asked. 

Spears is referring to recent tabloid photos that showed her jetskiing with boyfriend Sam Asghari in Miami, where she said she looks nearly “40 pounds bigger than I am today.”

“People always say people or celebrities cheat with their images, but never do they question the papparazzi for selling your pic that they have messed with!” Spears wrote, offering a side-by-side comparison of her current shape and a tabloid picture. “This was all done within the same 17 hours!”

On her Instagram Story on Sunday, Spears claimed that some of her followers, along with “really criticizing” her posts, say her photos and videos “are either not on time or they’re fake.”

“But no one ever really asks are the paparazzi pictures fake? And do the paparazzi people do stuff to the pictures, and is the news really real?” she continued. “It’s a conspiracy theory that I’m actually interested in.”

“Yesterday, I went swimming,” she continued in the Instagram video. “I look like I’m 40 pounds bigger than I am today. This is how I am right now. And I’m skinny as a needle. You tell me. What is real?”

In another recent Instagram post, Spears chronicled an outing with Asghari, sharing a photo of them riding bikes and writing, “I’m so blessed to have this in my neighborhood… just got myself a new bike it feels like a piece of heaven !!!”

These new videos represent Spears’ latest efforts to control the media narrative that has swirled around her in recent months. 

Following Spears’ cancelation of her Las Vegas residency in January, the 37-year-old star checked in and out of a wellness center, brought a restraining order against her supposed former manager Sam Lutfi and appeared in court alongside her parents, where a judge ordered an evaluation of her conservatorship.

The conservatorship has put control of nearly all of her affairs in the hands of her father, Jamie Spears, since in 2008, when Spears’ personal and psychiatric struggles played out in several public incidents. 

Spears’ longtime manager Larry Rudolph also courted controversy by suggesting to TMZ that Spears may not work again, before clarifying his statements to Billboard, saying his words were misinterpreted.

“Other media sources seem to be picking up my quotes to TMZ as implying that Britney will never work again. That’s not what I said,” Rudolph said. “I simply said that the Vegas residency is now officially off and that she hasn’t called me in months to talk about doing anything so I’m not sure if or when she will ever want to work again. It’s that simple.”

Spears has stayed busy on Instagram, posting shots and videos of her dance routines, workouts and pool hangouts, including a recent clip where she criticized rumors that she wasn’t in charge of her own social media presence. 

“For those of you who don’t think I post my own videos, I did this video yesterday,” she told the camera. “So, you’re wrong. But I hope you like it.”

She also shared a graphic of a quote credited to Lupita Nyong’o, reading, “There’s a separation between the public and the private. In the arena where I’m being desired, I’m absent.”
