Britney Spears says she accidentally burned her home gym down

Britney Spears is known for many things, such as her iconic pop songs, unrivaled dance moves and deeply entertaining social media posts.

The singer opened up to her 24 million Instagram followers about a shocking (and unexpected) mishap she encountered earlier this year that completely altered her daily routine.

“Hi guys, I’m in my gym right now. I haven’t been in here for, like, six months because I burned my gym down, unfortunately,” she said in the video. “I had two candles and, yeah … one thing led to another and I burned it down.”

Spears continued her explanation in the video’s caption.

“It was an accident …. but yes …. I burnt it down,” she wrote. “I walked past the door to the gym and flames BOOM !!!!!!”

She said her fire alarm went off shortly after “and yippy hoorah nobody got hurt.”

Spears revealed that she only has two pieces of gym equipment left, but said she wanted to share a video to show off her new workout “during this time.”

Her fans were shocked by how calmly she delivered the unusual news.

“She’s literally fire. Britney thank GOD you are okay,” one Instagram user wrote.

“We should all learn from this,” another said.

Spears isn’t letting the unfortunate accident get her down, though.

“It could be much worse, so I’m grateful,” she said in her caption.
