American pop star Britney Spears announced on her Instagram on August 5 that she is Catholic and attending Mass, according to the National Catholic Register.
In Thursday’s post, 39-year-old Spears shared two videos. In one of them you can see her posing in denim shorts and a sweater. The second shows her spinning in a blue floral dress. In the caption she wrote: “Pssss about the next video … I just got back from Mass … I’m Catholic now … let’s pray !!!”.
Originally from McComb, Mississippi, Spears was raised in a Baptist spirit. She first rose to fame as a child on the TV show Star Search. She released her debut album “… Baby One More Time” in January 1999 at the age of 17. While some were surprised by the sudden declaration, Spears was expressing her commitment to faith early in her Instagram posts. Spears has repeatedly posted prayers, including the “Hail Mary” prayer, and has spoken frequently about her prayer life. As noted by the National Catholic Register, although the artist was brought up as a Baptist and now declares herself a Catholic, it is uncertain whether she was previously baptized and it is unclear whether she received any other sacraments.
After a public meltdown in 2007, Spears is placed under probation, but this year she demanded that her father, Jamie Spears, be removed from the function. Spears’ mother Lynne Spears, sister Jamie Lynn, and nieces Maddie Aldridge and Ivey Joan Watson are practicing Catholics, with Jamie Lynn joining the Church quite recently.
