When she isn’t making music, like many other celebrities, Britney has ventured into visual art. The supreme songstress has created a watercolour painting featuring five flowers in soft purples, blue and pinks which she shared on her Instagram with the caption “Sometimes you just gotta play!!!!!!”
The subtle painting has been bought by Robin Leach, the entertainment reporter and writer for $10,000. The painting was auctioned for a good cause; it will go towards the victims of the horrendous Las Vegas shooting. Speaking at the auction, Britney remarked “I’m so proud to call Vegas my second home and I’m pleased to participate in this Vegas Cares show,” Spears told the auction attendees in a video message. “The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it’s in that spirit that we move forward.” Money raised will also be used to create a memorial art piece commemorating the 58 victims whose lives were taken in the massacre.
Vegas is a significant place for Britney. She has held a concert residency since December 2013 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, performing there around 50 times a year and set to close on 31st December.
