In the Instagram Reel announcing her engagement, Britney Spears seemed to be constantly moving as her now-fiancé, Sam Asghari, held the camera in front of the two of them, filming them selfie-style. Spears spoke very little in the video, only exclaiming “yes” when Asghari asked her if she liked her ring. Otherwise, Spears expressed her emotions through her movements, which spoke volumes, as body language expert, media coach, international personal branding expert, and author of “A.W.E.S.O.M.E,” Jess Ponce III, exclusively told Nicki Swift.
Ponce III explained that this Reel was the first time her fans have seen “Britney, the performer” in “a while,” citing her “recent public exchanges” as “more serious in nature.” However, Ponce III called Spears “a true entertainer [who] said a lot with minimal words.” He stated Spears seemed to be “almost playfully taunting people” with how coyly, yet obviously she showed off her engagement ring. Ponce III also pointed out that she seemed to be sort of poking fun at others who have shown off their engagement rings on Instagram. Ponce III added that Spears’ movements showed off her “playful, almost defiant, independence.”
He also noted that Spears covering her mouth was “noteworthy,” as the movement seemed to have multiple meanings. It appeared to convey Spears’ “shocks [sic] and amazement,” but also sometimes “seemed to mimic someone who couldn’t or shouldn’t speak” — a message that was anything but “subtle.” Here’s hoping the newly engaged pair enjoys their new relationship status!
