Presently, to be clear, I am excluding Britney Spears in this strange claim nor will I recognize her complicity in it in any capacity. Britney is carrying on with her best life, practicing and finger painting butterflies and presenting mother images on her Instagram. Allow Britney to sit unbothered.
