Shortly after Britney Spears’ Instagram account was deleted, the “Piece of Me” singer took to Twitter to let her followers know the reason. “Don’t worry folks … just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement !!!! I’ll be back soon,” she tweeted. A source also talked to Page Six and gave a bit of insight about Spears’ decision to take an Instagram break. “She’s happy and in a great place, and silence can be a powerful thing and a powerful message,” the source explained, adding, “this was her decision.”
The source went on to say that the decision was made “in light of the successful path that she’s been on and continues to be on [following] the news of [her engagement].” Spears has been very active on social media, and has posted very candidly over the past few months. Fans are hopeful that the pop star will be back on Instagram soon — but seem to fully understand — and support — her decision to take a break for a bit!
